OVERALL, if you’re a dazzleglass fan, MAC Double Dazzle is the collection you’ve been waiting for. With eighteen dazzleglasses–six new and twelve repromotes–it’s hard not to find at least a few that catch your eye. Dazzleglass as a formula is a thick, ultra glittery sheer sticky gloss. Some of them are less sticky than others, but the majority have a thick consistency and reapplying isn’t always easy. The glitter isn’t subtle in the least bit (don’t think they’re like Chanel Glossimers); the glitter is obvious and bright. If you’ve handled Reflects Glitters, the glitter in these is very similar. (In fact, if you can’t afford any of these right now, mix any gloss with Reflects Glitter for a DIY version.)

Can’t get to the store? Buy online: Double Dazzleglass @ Nordstromicon.

I bought them all (as you can see), so I could take photos and do lip swatches (forthcoming) for my dearest readers. Normally, I’d say I’d have bought Goldyrocks, and Smile from the new ones. I had originally bought a ton of them, but I passed them along to my sister and only kept a couple (four to be exact). I may have repurchased Extra Amps and Rags to Riches. What did you end up buying? What are you planning to get?

Don’t forget to check out: product photos & swatches.

Get in-depth review color by color…

  • Sugarrimmed is the sheerest/most colorless dazzleglass, as it’s a sheer, frosty white with multi-colored glitter. This was released previously.
  • Goldyrocks is a sheer, bright spring yellow with gold glitter reflects. It’s not ultra pigmented, and I would classify it as one of the lighter colored/pigmented dazzleglasses. This one is limited edition for your reference.
  • Moth to Flame to is a sheer, peachy-orange gloss with frosty white and gold glitter shimmer. It is fairly sheer and does not provide a ton of color to lips when applied. This is new to the dazzleglass line-up.
  • Smile is an apricot-pink mixed with pink glitter with more color than the previously listed dazzleglasses. I do anticipate this color being fairly popular, because it is new to the dazzleglass line-up, and it is a wearable shade for most skintones.
  • Steppin’ Out is a fairly bright hot pink with pink and white glitter reflects. It does provide a nice glossy pink look to lips, and it is one of the more pigmented dazzleglasses. This was previously released.
  • Utterly Posh is a coppery color mixed with lighter gold-orange (almost molten) glitter reflects. It’s moderately pigmented for a dazzleglass. This is new, but it is limited edition.
  • Love Alert is a reddish-pink with light pink/white glitter reflects as shimmer. It gives a very slicked pinkish-red look to lips, and it is very glossy. This was previously released.
  • Date Night is a deep berryish shade with a touch of brown in it and lighter pink glitter. It does darken lips when applied, but it doesn’t do it too much to make it brown/boring. This was previously released.
  • Funtabulous is a fuchsia-purple with iridescent purple-pink glitter reflects. It has some color, but it’s not super pigmented; I do feel this is one of the more “dazzling” of the dazzleglasses. This was previously released.
  • Extra Amps is a soft pink with a bit of mauve to it, and the gltiter in it is a match-y pale pink. This shade, like Funtabulous, feels like it has a lot of “dazzle” to it. This was previously released.
  • Like Venus a slightly pinker version of Extra Amps, and it has an almost silvery-pink glitter used in it. It’s fairly sheer, though, so it doesn’t provide a lot of color on lips. This was previously released.
  • Stop! Look! is a raspberryish pink that’s extremely sheer. It mostly looks like glitter bits on the lips rather than giving much color. This is new to the dazzleglass line-up, but it is limited edition.
  • Money, Honey is a semi-sheer pale raspberry-pink with lots of pink glitter. This is one of my favorite dazzleglass shades. This was previously released.
  • Rags to Riches is a browner version of Money, Honey; it’s a slightly browner pink with multicolored glitter reflects. This was previously released.
  • Baby Sparks is a milky baby pink with multicolored glitter reflects. It’s fairly sheer, but it does appear milky on lips. This was previously released.
  • Bare Necessity is a light beigey-nude kind of color, and it is quite sheer. It has less “dazzle” from what I can tell compared to most of the other dazzleglasses. This was previously released.
  • Girl’s Delight is a sheer, warm brown with gold glitter reflects shade. I wasn’t particularly wow-ed by this color; it was kind of boring! This is a new shade to the dazzleglass line-up.
  • Get Rich Quick is a dirty brown with pink and gold glitter reflects. It’s fairly pigmented, and it has a good amount of “dazzle.” This as previously released.

    I’m thinking about getting love alert and extra amps but I’m also eyeing goldyrocks, funtabulous and rags to riches.

  2. Smile and Money, Honey for me.

  3. LoveCelebGossip

    Loving this photo! Can’t wait to see them in person! Thank you :)

  4. Melissa

    So only three of these are LE and the rest are perm?

  5. Meagan

    I’m new to these and absolutely love them so far. I got Babysparks and Love Alert. I actually went to 2 mac stores in my town. They had them at one and not the other.

  6. WoW, that was alot to read, lol. I think I’ll pass on these since alot of my clients are NOT into glitter lips and I don’t do very many prom chikadees. They’re fun to look at though but they won’t be in my kit.

  7. Laura

    Thanks for the review, Christine.

  8. dee

    I got Bare Necessity and Goldyrocks. I still have Love Alert and 2 more from the original launch.

  9. anne

    Christine, how is Funtabulous compared to the HK’s Fast Friends?

  10. BINNIE

    I do love sticky glosses n if they last long ill pick up my 2or 3 I think as I never got any the 1st time around.! thanks4 the indept review christine, happy easter all xxx

  11. Kirstin

    Thanks for all the swatches & info & your thoughts!!!

    I was so excited this collection got bumped up — I recently got into make-up so I’ve never personally seen or swatched or worn Dazzleglass. I bought Goldyrocks ’cause it’s such a pretty golden sheen. I’m thinking it’s going to look nice over the Lollipop Loving I got from Sugarsweet. :)

  12. Andrea

    Well, I already had Love Alert, Steppin Out, Money Honey, Sugarrimmed, & Baby Sparks. But I ended up getting another Baby Sparks, Extra Amps, Rags To Riches, & Funtabulous! I love these! I might go back for Smile & Goldyrocks ;)

  13. Kharina

    I’d heard that Comet Blue was not coming back to the collection family and I was willing to deal with it but now Ms. Fizz is not coming back as well??? Aggghhhhh!! The world I-S coming to an end!

  14. A

    how much are dazzle glasses again? I always forget and cannot simply find the answer when googling.

  15. carriespooner

    I went to Mac today and sat at a mirror so I could try on every color.

    I bought Utterly posh, Smile, SugarRimmed, Date night. I’m Nw20 btw.

    I found some of them were more pigmented than others. Datenight was so pretty it made me cry. I tried Goldyrocks on bare lips and it was really sheer but I think it might be fun to get to try over lippies.

    The only Dazzleglass I have previously had is Miss Dynamite. But.. now.. I’m wishing I had them all. Love the look. Makes you look like you’ve been sucking the chrome off a bumper. Juicy yummy lips!

    I think dazzleglass is 14.50.

  16. charlieee

    thanks for the review! :) i may get Smile, Steppin’ Out, Extra Amps n Baby Sparks. luckily these are permanent, so no rush! :))

  17. BaDKiTTy

    I want to get Smile. I have 3 from last year Baby Sparks, Rags to Riches and Funtabulous. I really like them.

  18. cloudburst

    I didn’t get to the mall tonight but I’m still think I’ll get Smile & Steppin Out, but I’ll check out Funtabulous on your suggestion. I’m loving pink glosses right now!

  19. ashley

    Are these all going to permanent? or just some of them??

  20. Faheema

    I am thinking about getting goldyrocks and smile :)

  21. Dawn

    So I bought Utterly Posh, BEAUTIFUL on deeper skin tones i think especially with a brown li wner and Funtabulous,hich I thought was pretty pigmented on me. That’s all I can afford right now, since they are mostly all permanent. I am going back for Date Night(which I missed the last two times), Get Rich Quick and I forgot which other one i tried that i liked..LOL..there are so many. Maybe it was Money Honey.

    I bought Love Alert the 1st time around and I think that one is my favorite color. Thank God they are permanent.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date, Christine!

  22. oh-my-god. i love these!

  23. Amanda
