Beauty Review: MAC Funtabulous Dazzleglass

I have always had a thing for MAC’s Dazzleglass. I remember when they first came out. I was in LOVE.

But the $18.00 (a year ago they were $16.50!!) price tag just doesn’t sit well with me. I mean really? $18.00..for lip gloss? Not exactly a recession-friendly purchase. I probably would not have made it had it not been for a Nordstrom’s gift card.

I already own two Dazzleglasses (a review of me in Get Rich here) and I absolutely LOVE them. Granted I don’t wear them all the time but I love how they are nice additions in my make-up stash. Every lady needs a little glitter wear for the lips. Especially a bright magenta one!

Let me introduce you to Funtabulous…


….I decided to have a little photo shoot outside. See….inside it looks glitter-tastic and under control.


But when the sun hits it…




Oh.mi.glittery goodness. This color is a work of art! Of course layering it over your favorite lip gloss or lip stick will really make it pop but I don’t mind wearing it solo. Especially on make-up free day.


Oh, wondering why I have the concerned face?


A little black snack decided to pop his head up over the bushes. Earlier, he slithered by my head while I was laying on the grass. He and other creepy crawlers are reasons why I am not so much of a nature girl. *trembles* So much for make-up shots outside. I’m done.

Do you own any Dazzeglasses?

What’s your favorite one, chica?

MAC’s Dazzleglass

I don’t know ‘bout yall, but I am a serious lip gloss, girl. I don’t wear it as often as I used to (I’m trying to become a mature woman so I’m into lipsticks, ha!) but I still have some obsession with a good gloss. MAC’s Dazzleglass never really intrigued me right away but being the MAC addict, that I am…I still had to check it out.

Dazzleglass…..I gotta give it props. At $16.50, MAC Cosmetics defines these babies as “High-shine + large particle quartz and opal crystal captured in a great new formula with light-reflecting, crystalline iridescence. Umm, so what does that mean in laymen (or women , ha!) terms? Just that it’s a pretty shiny gloss. Is it tacky? Yeeep. Is it lightweight? Hmmm, not quite. Does it have a better staying power than Lipglass or Lustreglass? YES!!! I absolutely love how long this gloss stays on. Longer than the average gloss I’ve worked with.

Do I think it’s necessary to haul more than one? No, but that may just me being cheap. In my eyes, a gloss is a gloss. $16.50 is already a stretch for ONE so I can’t imagine hauling more than that. To prevent myself from even being tempted to purchase more than one, I picked the one Dazzlegass that caught my eye, swatched it, purchased it and walked away.

Let me introduce you to “Get Rich”.

Pretty pretty, uh? This color almost reminds me of Squeeze It from the Fafi Collection, except a little more sheerer and glittery. Here’s how it looks alone.

Just ehhh….like a really ole’ gloss to me. I would still wear it by itself because of the staying power, but I wasn’t too impressed.

So I decided to pair it with a lipstick. Here is MAC’s 3D lipstick worn alone.

I’m tellin’ you…I love me some 3D. I could wear this color everyday. It’s perfect. Topping Get Rich over this gives it a nice little POP that I’m thinkin’ I could incorporate everytime I wear 3D. Check it…

I can dig it. Not super impressed but again, the staying power of these babies are really what turn me on. What are your thoughts on Dazzleglass? Pass or a must have?

Let a sista know!
