MAC came up with two colour stories this August in Austria and I went to Vienna to check them out. First of all I was very excited about the Digi Dazzle collection because I'm a Dazzleglass freak. The other collection Dear to wear reminded me a lot of the MUFE mattes I already own, so I was not so much into it before I saw the products in person.
The Dear to wear eyeshadows are very well pigmented so I picket up four of them: Crazy Cool, Shock-a-holic, Louder, Please and Sassy Grass. There were many eyeshadows which were either repromoted or permanent at the PRO store, so I passed on them.
What really cought my eye were the new Dear to wear lipglasses. Hell, that's what a call a Lipgloss! Where have these fabulous products been in my life? I instantly fell in the love with the pigmentation and the effects and picked up all the cool colours from the collection: Bold & Brash (wich is not pink like the pigment Bold and brash), Dare to dare, Gimme that! and my new love Ban this!
Then I went on to the Digi Dazzle collection and started swatching all the lipsticks. They were all very glittery and pretty but then I wanted to take them off and had glitter all over my hand and my arm. The lipsticks are pretty messy and the glitter travels around. So I just picked up three of them: Hellraiser (which I had to get because of the name), Troublemaker (which reminds me of Emily the Strange and so I got it) and Liquid Lurex. The last one will be fabulous to layer over other lipsticks and even on its own it's a gorgeous shade.
As I already own most of the Dazzleglasses that came out with the collection and I did not like the pink Dazzleglass at all (why didn't they repromote Ms. Fizz Dazzleglass?) I just got Boys go crazy. This shade is perfect when layered over Violetta lipstick.
My thoughts on both of the collections:
I always check out all collections in person, because I can not make decisions based on pictures posted by other bloggers on the internet. I like to look at all the swatches in advance but I have to try the products out myself before I purchase them.
For me the Dear to wear lipglasses stand out the most, they are (at least for me) all I want when I reach for a lipgloss. If you don't like traveling glitter in your face pass on the Dazzle Lipsticks and pick a Dazzleglass instead.
Do you like the Collections? Did you purchase anything?
