Dazzlegold

MAC Dazzlegold Dazzle Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a bright, light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a glittery finish. It had a transparent base, which was as described, and lots of gold pearl, sparkle, and larger flecks of glitter. It had “coverage” with respect to the shimmer/glitter that adhered and stayed on my cheekbones. The texture was dense and smooth to the touch (almost felt like a firm cream), and despite being quite glittery, it picked up well with my brush and actually blended out (without disappearing). It stayed on well for eight hours with minimal migration over time.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.34 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to "reflect light with a shock of sparkle over translucent colour" with a "cream-powder" base that has "minimal fallout" and can be layered over "blush and eye shadow." It is supposed to wear for "8 hours." They had a dense, but smooth, consistency with lots of fleck-like sparkle and glitter--flatter but very reflective particles that adhered better to the skin and did, in fact, have "minimal fallout" and some travel/migration of sparkles over time but a lot of stayed in place over the eight hours it lasted for. The pigmentation was as described: lots of glitter and a transparent base, so it had "coverage" but in the form of sparkle and glitter. For all the reflective qualities of the finish, it didn't emphasize my skin's texture. They were easy to apply and blend out without losing the "coverage" or initial placement of the product.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

You lost me at “glittery finish,” but poking around in the dupes had me falling in love with Natasha Denona 03 Bronze, which is now on my Sephora loves list.
