I bought MAC Dazzle Lipstick in Hellraiser, not quite understanding the reason for its name but loving the multi-coloured sparkles in the pearlised lavender base. Perhaps the manic mix of shimmering bits alludes to rebel rousing, who knows?
This lipstick reminds me a little of MAC Frost Lipstick in Intricate but the sparkle particles are larger and brighter than those in the latter. Unlike Intricate, the texture of this lippy in the special Dazzle* finish is on the dry side and somewhat rough (no thank you, gritty glitter!).
This multi-dimensional lippy will make an interesting topper but it truly twinkles with a clear or coloured gloss over it. Besides, a lip-drenching gloss will not only highlight the colourful sparkles, it will also alleviate the dryness and roughness.
As with all MAC lipsticks in Singapore, this lip lovely retails at S$28…until the brand raises its prices once more later this year. Unfortunately, the MAC Pro discount is not applicable to anything from the Digi-Pops collection.
Together with Digi-Pops, three Look in a Box sets are part of MAC’s Nordstrom-exclusive collection for 2010. Oddly, Singapore is one of the few countries outside of North America to consistently receive the yearly MAC x Nordstrom beauty exclusives ahead of time/at the same time as the United States and Canada.
High-shine lip color meets triple-drama sparkle and shine when multi sizes of pearl pigments team up with rich, creamy color to create a superb glam-rock effect for the lips. Layerable. Long-wearing. Hydrating for smooth application.
