MAC Dazzleglass Permanent Collection Coming Soon!

Wednesday, I was in heaven. And no, I’m not using the word heaven metaphorically. I was really in heaven. The real deal…because I can’t imagine the afterlife being much better than the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Beauty Awards Product Demonstration. Nearly 600 new products from more than 280 brands were on display at the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building in NYC – for attendees to touch, test, and take home.

I was having such a fabulous time that I was tempted to blow off my 8pm train back to Philly. Seriously, it was better than my fantasy of being “accidentally” locked in a Sephora overnight. And you should see the gift bag that they gave out at the end. It’s unbelievable (and it weighed, like, 20 pounds). Don’t hate. Appreciate.

The best part of CEW was learning about – and testing – products that haven’t been released yet, such as MAC’s upcoming Dazzleglass Collection.

By popular demand, MAC is creating a permanent collection of these brilliant glosses – to be released next month. I am particularly enamored with three nude/caramel-y shades that are so succulent, I need them in my life right now. Yesterday even. Here’s hoping this collection has an early March launch date, because I am in dire need of some Dazzleglass. Mama needs her MAC medicine, okaaaay?

HIP Color Presso: Spoiled Pretty Is Not ImPressed

I really wanted to love the new HIP Color Presso lipglosses from L’Oreal Paris. I really did. Unfortunately, I can’t think of one reason to recommend this product to all of you.

The concept is great…a duo of glosses that blend together to create an infinite array of shades. But a cool concept can’t redeem a mediocre product. First of all, the odd packaging feels and looks cheap…and it’s got this little loop at the top that I just don’t get. It’s as if L’Oreal designed it so that you could put it on your key ring…or hang it on your Christmas Tree.

Secondly, you have to squeeze the lipgloss chambers to dispense the product onto the applicator; I was expecting a dial or button…so having to squeeze the two tubes simultaneously just upped the cheap factor. Finally, the color (I have Snazzy) was just okay. Nothing to write home about. In fact, I kinda loathed the honeydew melon half of the twosome. So if I continue to use my Color Presso, I’ll probably just end up wearing the other shade by itself. Furthermore, Color Presso costs $13. Personally, I wouldn’t pay half that for this lipgloss.

The product smells and wears exactly like HIP Jelly Balms, which I absolutely adore. So do yourself a favor – if you were contemplating a Color Presso purchase, just buy a Jelly Balm instead.
