Advantages: Quality, impessive finish, good value for money, luxurious
Dazzleglass is one of my favourite lipglosses from MAC and I wear it almost every time that I go clubbing/somewhere special. It's great over matte lipstick but it looks amazing on its own as well.
It's really sparkly but it doesn't look at all tacky or greasy and in my opinion it looks very luxurious and glitzy. It's a little too sparkly for day to day wear in my opinion and could easily look over the top when I'm wearing minimal make-up but it is the lipgloss that I always reach for when I am making an effort with my make-up for a night out on the town etc.
A 2.4ml tube of this retails at £17.00 which like all MAC products is quite pricey however don't let the price put you off - the quality shines through and a little goes a long way as even one coat makes a massive difference so a tube lasts for a good few months at least - I've had mine since last December and have used it countless times and there's still quite a bit left.
The tube that the lipgloss comes in is very good quality. It is made from a sturdy, good quality plastic which is transparent. I found the transparent tube particularly handy when I was at the MAC counter and looking at the different colours and it is also handy because I am able to see how much product I have left. The tube has a black screw-on lid which has the wand and applicator attatched to it and the tube has 'MAC Dazzleglass' written on the side of it clearly in black writing. The tube comes in a quite a posh rectangular cardboard box which is black with the product name written on it. I personally don't keep the boxes of my MAC products as I have so many!
The lip gloss is available in an impressive seventeen different shades ranging from purple and pink to beige and brown. I have it in 'love alert' which is described by MAC as being raspberry red with red pearl - it's basically bright barbie pink with a red tone that stops it from looking over the top. The lip gloss itself is just the right consistency - not so thick that it easily blobs up and looks gloopy but thick enough not to run/dribble off of my lips! It is a little sticky to the touch but no more than an average lip gloss and it is not tacky.
I only need a small amount for an impressive glossy, pearly finish and huge amount of shimmer and the applicator brush is smooth, soft and precise. It feels lightweight on my lips rather than feeling like a thick layer. The pink and silver glitter particles are very noticeable close up but they do not make the gloss look tacky - the finish is extremely glitzy and luxurious. It is not the most natural looking lip gloss but it isn't too over the top or in your face,either.
The gloss is well pigmented and the colour it gives is nice and subtle and I especially like wearing it over a matte lipstick - it looks amazing. It smells quite nice as well but the smell soon fades. The gloss stays in tact for a good few hours but it is not non transferrable so my boyfriend has ended up with glittery cheeks and lips on a few ocassions! While the gloss isn't drying it isn't overlly moisturising but it does make my lips appear nice and moist as well as a little fuller.
Overall I highly recommend this lip gloss and I give it five out of five stars.
