There are six shades, all but one leaning quite warm-toned, and three are more coral-y. Full reviews to come but enjoy these sneak peek swatches for now. :)

Temptalia Asks You


Do you try a look after watching a makeup tutorial? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerI don’t! I only watch a few, but I have a terrible habit of playing a video and then immersing myself in writing or editing, and I tune everything else out.

MAC Cherry Popping Dazzleglass
MAC Cherry Popping Dazzleglass

MAC Cherry Popping Dazzleglass ($20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “fuchsia with purple pearl.” It’s a muted, pinky-red with lighter violet and pink sparkle and shimmer. It was semi-sheer on lips with noticeable color that went on evenly but still let the natural lip color come through. The texture was medium-thick with a tacky feel. On me, the gloss lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Social Season (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Love Alert (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter. L’Oreal Dazzle Me (LE, $9.99) is cooler. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

MAC Rollergirl Dazzleglass ($20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is described as a “nude with pink pearl.” It’s a light, beige-brown with lighter gold and pink sparkle. It is sheer with a little creamy, warming tint but for some, the natural lip color may be darker/stronger and see even less impact. The texture was tacky, thicker, but it was a little hydrating over time. It wore for four hours on me. Charlotte Tilbury Ibiza Nights (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer. Bobbi Brown Candlelight (LE, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Phiff (LE, $20.00) is lighter, less pigmented. MAC Moth to Flame (P, $20.00) is less pigmented. Bobbi Brown Beach (P, $24.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | MAC Dazzleglass ($20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight, and moisturizing” gloss with “exceptional shine with a crystalline iridescence” with “sheer colour.” Dazzleglasses are a very sparkly, longer-wearing gloss that is heavier and very tacky (it’s incredibly thick and noticeable on the lips–it’s not for someone who doesn’t like gloss). The tackier quality helps the wear trend towards three to five hours, and it helps prevent the sparkle from feeling gritty when worn while also keeping it from traveling all over the place. It has a brush-type applicator, and it is worth noting that despite the thicker plastic tube, it actually contains only 0.06 fl. oz. (Lipglass contains 0.17 fl. oz.). They are typically sheer to semi-sheer with their best qualities being the high-shine finish that’s very sparkly. They’re usually non-drying to lightly moisturizing for me. They are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.
