MAC Little Rock Dazzleglass
MAC Little Rock Dazzleglass

Phiff Off, MAC! I Stalked All Night and All That Was Left Were Dazzleglasses?!!

MAC Marilyn Monroe Dazzleglasses ($21.50 for 0.06 fl. oz.) include these two shades: Little Rock (soft sheer white with pearl) and Phiff (sheer yellow peach). Phiff is a repromote.  I will mention it until I’m blue in the face, but MAC puts a very, very little amount of product in the tubes for Dazzleglasses–a wee 0.06 fl. oz. compared to a normal Lipglass, which contains 0.17 fl. oz.

Little Rock is mostly colorless–at best, pale, sheer white–with white and silver shimmer. It added mostly shine and shimmer without altering my natural lip color. This shade lasted an hour and a half on my lips.

Phiff is also mostly colorless–at best, pale, sheer golden beige–with silver and gold shimmer. Again, it really added a shiny, glossy look to my lips along with simmer. This shade lasted an hour and a half on my lips. I did see some stray glitter particles outside my lips.

When it comes to glosses as sheer as these, dupes abound. As far as comparable formulas, the two I think are most comparable in regards to the shimmer are Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipgloss and Chanel’s Glossimers. Those two are actually non-sticky, thinner, and longer-wearing for me than Dazzleglass, which is a thicker, tacky formula. They are vanilla-scented but taste-free and come in large, round tubes with glossy black screw-top lids and a clear (well, and then printed with Marilyn Monroe’s image) around the bottom of the tube. It comes with a brush-type applicator.

In all honesty, unless you’re buying for the packaging, I really think you should check out Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipglosses as an alternative; they’re one of my all-time favorite formulas, because they sparkle like the most glittery treasure, and they have 0.24 fl. oz. of product for $23–you’d be getting four times the product for $1.50 more! Try Star in place of Little Rock aned Bare Sparkle in place of Phiff.

Keep in mind, online retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Bloomingdale’s will also launch the collection online. These retailers typically launch close in time to the in-store release date (October 4th).

At least MAC described these as sheer, so we knew what to expect! Little Rock essentially lightens lips just a bit, while Phiff brightens and warms them up; then both provide shimmer and a glossy shine.
