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).

I’m not sure about the gold one, but Rimmel has a pretty much comparable shade for around $5 USD. I can’t think of the name off hand, but it’s pretty apparent which one it is if you look at a display. It’s also not long-lasting, but it seems these aren’t, either.

I was not really aware of the amount of product you get in a Dazzleglass, it’s ridiculous compared to Bobbi Brown’s glosses which are great, so I don’t think I will ever purchase a Dazzleglass again, the only pro would be the Back 2 Mac thing which is nice…perhaps I should finish up what I already have before thinking about purchasing ANY makeup items, that should take the rest of my life span anyways…

I might be in the minority on this, but I really love Dazzleglass. It’s moisturizing and not as sticky as regular lipglass, and I like that it’s sheer. I think of them as glitter topcoats for lipstick more than anything else. Bobbi Brown’s tend to be more opaque, so I look at those as more stand alone lip products than glosses to add a little oomph to lipstick. However, I do agree that you don’t really need a million of them!

I think these look cute and could be great for layering, but the fact that BB glosses perform better and cost just a few more coins for 4 times the amount is a deal breaker!
You can even find very affordable drugstore dupes for such sheer glosses anyway.

“Phiff off MAC”? Just awesome and I really needed a laugh as I bought one of these this morning, along with an eye shadow in the hopes of giving my daughter a nice gift for the start of high school…..oh well, jokes on me I guess!!! Sigh!……

honestly terri, for the start of high school these are a great gift. Good for those days you just want a simple easy look. πŸ™‚ (coming from a 19 year old girl)

I want to wear colors like this so bad but I dont know what product to use to wash out my lips (dark top lip and pink bottom lip), do you think I should just give up on trying to wear colors like this?
