Dare To Wear Show and Tell

Hi Guys and Dolls! Last week MAC launched it’s exciting color collection Dare to Wear! This collection has had me all hot and bothered- the eyeshadow are bright,  a rainbow of color, and most of the colors are matte. 3 of the eyeshadows launched with this collex are from perm-regular line, 3 are from the pro line, 1 is a re-promote, and 5 are brand-spanking new! Along with these DELISH shadows MAC has launched a new type of lipglass, called Dare to Wear Lipglass. It comes in a long skinny tube, and is chock-full-o-glitter! The packaging gives the impression that there is less in the tube than say, a Dazzleglass. Well, well, well, my friends, that just isn’t so. These lipglasses actually have MORE than a standard Lipglass!!!!!!!!!! Excited yet?

more after the jump

These are the shadows I got from the collection. Free to Be and Atlantic Blue are perm so I bought them at a prostore in the pro-pan (it’s cheaper than buying it with the pot) but you can get them at counters anytime as well. Check out Sassy Grass! <3 Shock-a-Holic is labeled as a Matte, but since it had hot pink shimmer in the pan, I think it’s more of a Velvet.

Gimme That! is exactly what I said to the lady at MAC. I LOVE THIS GLOSS! It’s hot-magenta with a purpleish-blue duochrome, (triochrome?) and it’s opaque enough to cover my lipscar with out lip liner

These have nothing to do with this collection, but I got them this week, and not that many people get excited about neutrals, so I figured I’d give them some play 🙂 OH and Bottle Green is amazing. It’s labeled a Matte Texture, but it feels and behaves like a Veluxe texture (different from veluxe pearl, veluxe’s are beyond-anything silky smooth mattes. Sadly MAC has Discontinued most of them, or in this case, mislabeled one)

Here’s some other purples to compare Shock-a-Holic. The little swatch that isn’t labeled is vibrant grape and fig 1 mixed 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

      Okay, went to my MAC store and got the following:

      Sky Blue


      Dare to Dare lipgloss.

      OMG! The lipgloss is amazing! And the colors too! I had to choose only two eyeshadows because I was going to bust my budget!

    Oh. My. Sweet. Goddd.

    I bought ONLY two things from the collection. I’m trying to be so good!

    Sassy Grass was a must have. My favorite color in the entire world in an eyeshadow? Yes, please!

    And I couldn’t resist the Dare to Wear lipglass in Bold & Brash.

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    Love your swatches.

    I miss the Veluxe texture eyeshadows. I have Jewel Blue and it is absolutely GORGEOUS and sooo silky smooth like you said! I wonder why MAC discontinued most of them? I definitely will have to check out Bottle Green. Thanks for this Cora! 🙂

      I recently got Jewel Blue and I love it too! I have no idea why they don’t make them, but they really really should. This spring they had a veluxe in one of the spring color forecast palettes.

    Awesome eyeshadows. But the lipgloss, it’s GORGEOUS, I love it! x
