Here’s another look I did to find out what’s good from the , this time with liquid liner and lustrous lids. If you’re interested in this collection, here’s another look I did using the highlighters, and another look using one of the new glitter eyeshadows.
The is all about shiny pretty things. Even the eyeliners are chock-full of sparkly stuff.
Here’s another look experiment I did this week, this one using two of the four $22 Dazzleliners — a golden pink called and a charcoal black with silver and gold glitter called (LOVE that name, BTW).
For the record, I still like wearing glitter (yes, even at my age), but it’s not an everyday thing anymore because — let’s get real here — glitter isn’t easy to wear when you’re 40+ years old (hello, pores and
wrinkles experience lines!).
But I think it can still be fun in controlled doses, especially if the glitter, like in these Dazzleliners, sticks to your skin like glue.
Dazzleliner in Holiday Time!
There’s a TON of glitter in the Dazzleliners, but what else would you expect from something with the word “dazzle” in the name?
The Dazzleliners are like glittery MAC Liquidlast Liners. Similar packaging, and the same skinny paint brush applicator, similar viscosity. The liquid isn’t runny; it’s closer to a cream, but it’s less thick and dense than a cream shadow or gel liner.
Holiday Time looks more cool yellow gold than pink on my NC42 lids. I thought it might be similar to Urban Decay’s gold Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy before I actually used it, but the two are vastly different. The Urban Decay Glitter Liners contain glitter pieces suspended in a clear base, whereas the MAC Dazzleliners have their glitter pieces in an opaque pearly golden base.
I’m wearing Holiday Time as an eyeshadow in this look. I drew thick slashes with the skinny paintbrush applicator directly on my lids, then buffed it out with a MAC 217. The liquid sets very quickly, like in less than a minute, after which point it doesn’t move (yup, it’s also long-lasting).
After I buffed out the liquid liner, I could see the various shapes and sizes of the glitter pieces in the liner (so sparkly, and very cool). The pearly base sheered out significantly, and as the liquid liner set on my lids, I could feel it slightly tightening up a little, as if something in the formula was evaporating away quickly.
The tightening sensation didn’t hurt or anything. I just didn’t expect it.
By the way, I layered a touch of pink glitter eyeshadow on top for extra shimmer in this look — the shade , which is also one of the Shiny Pretty Shadows from the collection.
I like Holiday Time! (Both literally and figuratively, haha.) It’s long-lasting, too. If I were going dancing, I know I could wear it, and it would last all night long. Only thing is that I wish it looked a little more pink on me.
