Advantages: Lovely colours and long lasting
Disadvantages: The price
I love lip glosses and I have certainly have plenty of them. I always seem to find room in my collection for just one more and although I was hesitant about splashing out on my latest one, the sales assistant convinced me to do it and so I bought the Dazzleglass Lip Gloss by MAC
What does the product do?
The product promises to give the lips a beautiful sparkle and shine, as well as a pop of colour. It claims that the gloss will reflect the light to make the lips pretty and eye catching, without being tacky, sticky or uncomfortable.
There are a wide range of shades available from pinks to purple and reds to browns. They each come with lovely and interesting names including Baby Sparks, Roman Holiday, Love Alert and Money, Honey. I chose Like Venus which is a baby pink shade with red pearl flecks.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as a normal lip gloss. It can be applied to the lips as often as required and it can be worn alone or over the top of your favourite lipstick.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a simple tube and you can see the gloss inside so you can get a good idea of the colour that you'll receive. The packaging is kept to a minimal with just a simple black lid and the wand is contained within the lid. The application brush is very short and thin which allows to precisely apply the gloss and to control the amount of gloss that you are using. The product costs around £17 and it can be bought from any store with a MAC counter and also from a variety of online websites.
The lip gloss is easy to apply because the wand allows you to be precise. It also stops you from applying too much and making your lips sticky and gloopy. You can cover your lips in one coat. The product has a delicious sweet vanilla smell which is very evident as you apply the gloss and although you can still smell it after application, it shouldn't be strong enough to put you off wearing it. I love it anyway so I wish it would stay for longer!
The gloss is beautiful and it coats your lips with a lovely shine. The colour is evident but sheer at the same time so it's good for people like me who don't like the colour on their lips to be too over the top. The sparkles are very obvious and evident but that shimmer more than glitter, and it looks classy rather than childish. The product is quite tacky so it does stay put even after eating or drinking. It still manages not to be greasy or sticky so it feels completely comfortable on the lips.
All in all, I love the consistency, colour and aroma of this lip gloss. It is high quality, long lasting and it makes your lips look much prettier and very eye catching. It's only a shame that they are expensive otherwise, I'd one in each colour!
Summary: A lovely long lasting and glittery gloss for the lips
