Dazzlepink

MAC Dazzlepink Dazzle Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.34 oz.) is a light-medium peach with pink-to-peach shifting glitter. As described, the base was transparent, but there was plenty of “coverage” in the form of sparkle and flecks of flatter glitter particles. This translated into a noticeably glittery, highly reflective finish that was sparkly but not dirt-like at some angles (an issue with some glitters) due to the flat shape. The powder felt smooth, dense and more cream-like, but it picked up well with a tapered, highlighting brush and adhered evenly to bare skin. It wore well for eight hours with minimal migration/movement of the glitter 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.

This is the thing that will get me off the MAC sidelines. Havenโ€™t purchased from them in probably a year, but anything called Dazzlepink is coming home with me. (Yes, I have eleventy million dupes. Buying anyway.)

Der Christine,
do you think this is a good dupe for the past Dior Holo luminizer gold 002 of this winter?
I’m looking for something that can have quite the same sparkle ๐Ÿ˜‰
Thank you!
