M.A.C. Launches: Style Black, Dazzleglass Creme & Zoom Fast Black Lash

So today is a big day in the M.A.C. universe. We have the official launch of Style Black, Dazzleglass Creme and Zoom Fast Black Lash collections.  I already previewed the Style Black collection when I attended the sneak peek at the M.A.C. SoHo store on Fashion’s Night Out.  I think I am going to get the Greasepaint Stick, MES in Cinderfella and one of the Dazzleglasses, maybe Blackfire.

Continuing on the dark, gothic but sultry theme of the fall, M.A.C. has also added to their mascara collection with Zoom Fast Black Lash.  ZFBL is permanent and is supposed to be super duper black!!! I love mascara and I am always on the lookout for the blackest of the blacks.  It is also supposed to give dramatic length and volume while taking advantage of sodium hyaluronate which keeps lashes soft, hydrated and flexible.  This is definitely another one to add to my mascara wishlist!

The M.A.C. community has been buzzing with anticipation for the launch of the limited edition Dazzleglass Creme collection. Dazzleglass lipglosses have been a major hit for M.A.C. since their arrival a few years ago.  They sold out in days M.A.C. re-released them this year as part of their permanent lip collection.  The Dazzleglass Cremes are supposed to be like the love child of Dazzleglasses and Cremesheen glass lipglosses.  Intense, shimmery, glassy shine combined with medium pigmentation and smooth, non-sticky formula. I for one can’t wait for these!!

Swatched! Jin Soon Choi for M.A.C.

Jin Soon Choi for M.A.C. haul

Cool Reserve (L) & For Fun (R)

Hi folks!!

So I was able to view the new M.A.C. nail collection on Saturday and I think this a great fall collection.  The colours are very creamy, mostly dark, vampy and you would need at least 2 coats for full coverage.  There was some streaking when applying the first coat but application was smooth on the second.  The colours are beautiful and I was really tempted to just get them all, but I only got 2 of them:  Cool Reserve and For Fun.
