Mac Le Disko Collection- Dazzleshadow Swatches!

June 13, 2015

Le Disko. You know what that reminds me of? Well…I know that this collection is inspired by the lovely glitters and shine of the disco era. BUT every time I hear the name, I can only think of the song by Shiny Toy Guns called Le Disko. It’s so strange, but I love it. hehe

Anyway! You guys are probably here because you want to see some swatches of the new Mac Le Disko collection! I went a bit crazy with the new Dazzleshadows, so that’s exactly what I’m gonna show you all! But first, lemme tell you a few things about these shadows.

First of all, they are pricier than the normal Mac shadows, which run at $10 for the refill pan or $16 for the whole eye shadow case. These Dazzleshadows cost $20, but do contain slightly more product that the regular shadows (1.5g vs 1.3g).

When I took the first shadow out of the box, I noticed a folded paper in there with it. What does it say? “Dazzleshadow is delicate. Please handle with care.” Okay! Well, I will forever be paranoid and fearing for the lives of my beautiful new shadows! So yeah, be careful with these. The other thing I noticed? How incredibly beautiful these are! Ah! So much glitter! So much sparkle! So much color! SO MUCH HAPPINESS! Also, a lot of these do have that magnificent duochrome effect where it will look one color when tilted this way and then another color when tilted the other way.

I have a deep love and fascination with duochrome things, so this made me SO happy. When I took the swatches, I made sure to tilt them a couple of ways so you can see what they look like in different lighting. Some might surprise you!

The feel of these shadows are much different than normal shadows. When I dipped my fingers into the pan, it felt like I was swirling my fingers in a bunch of flakes. I don’t know if that makes sense, but that’s the only way I know how to describe it! I mean, the shadows don’t feel cheap or dusty or anything, but it doesn’t feel like powder. If you look closely at the swatches, you can see that there are what look like glitter flakes instead of chunks of glitter. These are flat and don’t have that gritty feel that some super glittery shadows tend to have. I found that instead of swiping the colors onto your eyes, the best method would be to pat the colors on. These do have a LOT of fallout, so pressing them onto the lid will help reduce that a bit.

Like I said, the shadows are $20 a piece and can be found on Mac’s website now and in stores starting June 18th. Alright! I can’t think of anything else I need to say at the moment, so let’s see these beauties in action!
