Day 27: They're so DAZZLING!!!
by MUA's Cavewoman
Ms. Blogdorf and Ms. Cavewoman have many things in common, our love of all things NYC, our taste in fashion, our addiction to beautiful coats, our never-ending quest for the most comfy yet stylish flats, and our love of everything that sparkles. I think my Mom should have named me Raven. I'm attracted to anything shimmery! And Ms. Blogdorf and I share our love of the most beautiful, sparkling, shimmering lipglosses we've ever found, the MAC Dazzleglass. Originally launched in May, 2008, the collection of 16 colors was an instant hit not just with us, but with MAC fans everywhere. Colors sold out at counters within hours. Ebay listings flew into high bids with lightning speed. Raves were posted on makeup chat boards, and the buzz was nonstop. I loved the colors and especially the applicator, which is a brush instead of the usual sponge-tip. These glosses stay where you put them and don't migrate out into the lines around the mouth, and they keep their color and shimmer for hours. They don't feel gritty or sticky, either.
The colors in the photo are part of that original release. Ms. Blogdorf and I found a few at the Estee Lauder Cosmetics Company Store near us a few months ago, just by chance. We were giddy! We never dreamed there were any more available after the initial sell-out at the counters. We bought.
But do not fret, gloss lovers! MAC is promising to return ten of the original shades and seven new ones in a collection called Double Dazzle, to launch on April 30th. You know where Ms. Blogdorf and I will be on that day!
