Mac Le Disko Collection – Dazzle Shadows Mini Haul & Review

MAC-Le-Disko-Promo-2

Mac recently launched the Le Disko collection (yesterday in store for my province!) So naturally, Claudia and I had to go check out it out. I mean, for research purposes of course.

This collection is all about sparkle, glamour, and dazzling colour. The whole collection features 12 dazzle shadows, 5 Dazzleglasses, and 1 brush. While the Dazzleglasses didn’t quite capture my heart, the shadows are phenomenal!

These shadows have rich, multi-dimensional pigments with great colour payoff, and gorgeous sparkle. They can be used dry, or wet for more of a rich, metallic finish.

While I definitely wanted every single one of these gorgeous limited edition shades, I limited myself to my 4 favourites:

P1120797

Boom Boom Room: Mac describes this as a light burgundy with emerald sparkles. i definitely see more of a blue/brown/emerald hybrid than burgundy though. This was the first shade I absolutely knew that I needed. It is such a rich, unique colour. A lot of people have been describing it as a much better version of the Blue Brown Pigment. I can see similarities, but this Dazzleshadow is way better!

Slow/Fast/Slow: Mac describes this as a bronze with red sparkles. At first glance, it’s a gorgeous reddish copper. This colour is stunning, especially for summer! It photographs paler than it is – in person, you see a lot more of the red/copper tone.

Feel The Fever: This is described as a deep blue purple with pink sparkles. This is a beautifully rich colour that is so much more than a blue purple. It changes depending on the light. This would be gorgeous with a smokey eye!

She Sparkles: And of course I couldn’t resist any collection with a neutral silver/beige. This colour is a light grey tone with silver sparkles. On the skin I personally think it looks much more neutral/beige than silver. This might be tied with Boom Boom Room for my favourites out of all the shadow colours!
