MAC Pink Lip Dazzlesphere
MAC Pink Lip Dazzlesphere for Holiday 2011
The third (and last!) lip kit we’re looking at is MAC’s Pink Lip Dazzlesphere ($32.50 for 2 x 0.07 oz., 2 x 0.09 oz.), which includes: Fashion Scoop (clear pink), Petite Indulgence (mid-tone bright blue pink), Like Venus (clean light bubblegum pink with red pearl), and Rags to Riches (plummy pink with red pearlized pigments).
The Cremesheen Glasses are listed as 0.07 oz. each, while the Dazzleglasses are listed as 0.09 oz. each (and I specifically say each, because this is how it is labeled). What is noteworthy about that is that full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. while full-sized Dazzleglasses are only 0.06 oz. The tubes feel thicker but are definitely shorter than full-sized Cremesheen Glasses/Dazzleglasses, although the clear plastic seems wider/thicker in the kit glosses. The area that contains the gloss seems slightly wider, maybe, but barely. I would hope that those sizes listed are accurate, and if that is indeed the case, then each kit contains $28.78 worth of Cremesheen Glass and $55.50 worth of Dazzleglass. That is a whopping $84.28 worth of lipgloss for $32.50.
- Fashion Scoop is a sheer, milky pale pink with white micro-shimmer. This shade is part of the permanent range. It’s sheerer than The Wee Coquette.
- Petite Indulgence is a cool-toned, blue-based bubblegum pink with a creamy finish. It has semi-sheer color that adds a faira mount of pink to my natural lip color. This shade is a repromote. It’s a way sheerer version of MAC Sassy Lassy.
- Like Venus is a clear gloss with pink and silver micro-glitter. It is similar to a lot of other sheer lipglosses. This shade is part of the permanent range.
- Rags to Riches is a heavily pink glittered gloss with multi-colored micro-glitter. It has a very subtle pink-brown base. It’s part of the permanent range. MAC Tad Saucy is similar.
Cremesheen Glass is a formula that glides onto the lips easily, feels comfortable without being thin or thick, and tends to be on the sheerer side in color. It’s non-sticky (as compared to Lipglass, which is very thick and sticky), and it typically wears two hours or so on me before wearing away. They also tend to be creamier colors, rather than packed with shimmer. Dazzleglasses have a medium-thick consistency with micro-glitter and shimmer. They tend to be sheerer in color with more oomph coming from the dazzle than the base color. They tend to last two to three hours on me and tend to get tacky over time.
