Give ‘Em The Old Razzle Dazzle

dazzleglass 390 Give Em The Old Razzle Dazzle
MAC Dazzleglass was slated for a May release…but as you can see from the MAC website, this train reached the station a lil early.

This collection of glittery glosses brings to mind the song “Razzle Dazzle,” from the musical Chicago.

Give ’em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle Dazzle ’em
Give ’em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give ’em the old hocus pocus
Bead and feather ’em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?

What if your hinges all are rusting?
What if, in fact, you’re just disgusting?

Razzle dazzle ’em
And they’ll never catch wise!

These sixteen high-shine lipglosses bring an exciting dimensional pop to your lips. Large particle pearls reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystal. Provides exceptional shine with a crystalline iridescence. Non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturizing. Wear alone, or layer over lipstick or Lipglass for dramatic effect. Features MAC’s signature vanilla aroma.

MAC Skinsheen – Coming May 1st!

On May 1st, the same day that Naughty Nauticals collection shows up on MAC counters and on the website, it will be joined by Skinsheen.

mac skinsheen MAC Skinsheen   Coming May 1st!A sprayable lightweight gel that unlike your fancy, never drifts. Brushes lightly and flawlessly over the skin… undetectable. For the ultimate secret application and smoothest sheen, try the 179 Body Buffer Brush.

Skinsheen leg spray applies like a soft mousse to provide a quick, highly blendable application of colour to legs, arms, shoulders and décolletage.

Nick Gavrellis, MAC Executive Director of Product Development, says:

“Skinsheen is good for up to 2 washings. It’s highly water-resistant formula. Special polymers allow for up to 2 washings. The best way to wash it is warm water + soap. The warm water will release the hold the polymers have on the skin.”

skinsheen MAC Skinsheen   Coming May 1st!“It’s not transfer-proof, but highly transfer resistant. Provided skin is not overly moisturized underneath, it will stay on and not move. You have to wait for it to dry down completely before coming into contact with clothing. But we’ve heard from models (when we tested it backstage 2 years ago at Rosa Cha and Michael Kors) that it was exceptionally transfer resistant.

Works best when put on naked skin, not moisturized skin. The combo of silicones is actually conditioning to the skin!”

Skinsheen Leg Spray
Medium: Sheer soft golden caramel with soft gold nuances (International Only)
Medium: Dark Sheer soft bronze with golden tan pearl
Dark: Golden bronze
Deep: Dark Deep warm bronze with rich golden pearl
Suggested Retail Price: $22.50 U.S.

Suggested Retail Price: $52.00 U.S.
