The Scarlet Season: MAC Amorous Dazzleglass Creme

Recently released this past September (which means, despite its limited edition status, you can likely still find it in-store or online for purchase), MAC Amorous Dazzleglass Creme is a glittery, glamorous red gloss that packs both color and shimmer into a non-sticky high-gloss formula.  I like Amorous for the interplay between red color base and gold and red shimmer.  This shade of red is deep enough to not feel bright, but still rich in hue.  For a more opaque look, try it over your favorite red lipstick!

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009.  You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    hi christine,

    thanks

    I love this ! I can’t wait to get it. I hate that it always take AGES to MAC to launch the collections here in France.
    It’s not supposed to be out before Nov 1st here !

    I love this shade, but I bought totally fab dazzleglass creme and I am still not crazy about the texture. I didn’t go ahead and get amorous b/c I have a totally awesome Chanel glossimer that is an awesome dupe for this. I’ve rocked it MANY times.

    Is there any way you could pair it over a red lipstick? I’d love to see it layered.

    Thanks for all the red lip posts, btw. Red is probably the only color I bother wearing on my lips.

    I’d love to see what this looks like over the new Total Wow Lipstick from the holiday collection.

    Pretty but I pass over this one and got Creme Allure instead because I was in the mood for something a bit pinker.

  7. Alannah

    I just got this in my last MAC order! I normally avoid reds (they look terrible on me) but I couldn’t resist this one. So pretty! I hope it’ll work on me!

  8. I got this and a few other Dazzlecremes. I layered it over Russian Red is delicious!

    I got to say I don’t like this shade.
    It’s nice, but seams christmas-costume-like
    Too much sparkle
    It’ may “work” with the season, but I don’t picture myself wearing this particular shade of red.

    Very pretty! I love this, especially the glitter.

  11. KrisBliss

    After I saw this on you I made up my mind to buy it! I was wavering for a while and now, I just have to have it! Now I am just playing the waiting game until it ships…

  12. Luisafer

    glitter, nice touch!!! looks pretty!!!

  13. Oooh what a pretty color! I must have this!

  14. lkvy

    Ugh, I guess I’m the only one who thinks this is ugly?!

  15. Lorna

    i’s like this but i would rather have the chanel dragon

    It would look good when paired with a red lip, but its too patchy for my liking :| it looks like I could get the same effect by patting red reflects on my lips

    • I think most glosses (particularly dark ones that aren’t opaque) can look a bit patchy, but I find it looks fine at a normal distance. My lips aren’t actually THIS big in person, lol, and few people are that close to my face ;)

  17. This is nice, maybe paired with Chanel Dragon lacque!

  18. Rahshiela

    Hey, I already have one and I am going to buy a back up today!!! I love, love, love it!

  19. Ribbons

    I have to buy this and a few other dazzlecremes. I fall in love with it a little bit more everytime I see it :)

    Hey Christine… u know what a good mixture is? the MAC black mattene lipstick from style black w/the Amorous dazzleglass over it. It is like a beautiful cherry cola lip. really gorgeous, u should try it

  21. Carrie

    I tried this, but I never could get it to apply evenly, even over red lipstick. Off to find a new great red lipgloss then :)

  22. I really wish I hadn’t bought this one… it always goes on badly on bare lips. You have to use it over another lipstick. I’m not a fan of these glosses in general though.
