Above: MAC Alice + Olivia Dazzleglass Creme in I Want Candy
When I saw I.Want.Candy Dazzleglass Creme lipgloss in Alice + Olivia previews I was instantly curious and attracted to the colour. I thought the shock of yellow green is pretty and fun for summer. The colour is interesting on the lips, depending on your natural lip colour, it can create a different colour. On my medium pink lips, the chartreuse colour creates a peachy nude tone to my lips while reflecting a yellow green shimmer. The gloss is sheer and my natural lip colour shows through the yellow green shimmer. The gloss’ texture is creamy and not sticky; however, it does apply a bit blotchy and I had to help smooth the gloss over evenly with my fingers. After that, I let the gloss naturally set on my lips, which only takes a few minutes. The shimmer is subtle and this is not a glittery gloss. It is an interesting colour and I haven’t see a chartreuse colour gloss from MAC before.
I am not sure if I would be wearing I Want Candy alone on my lips too much, but I think with the right makeup, it would look very cool. I am thinking a smokey eye or even a nude eye look with a black liner. Perhaps a light golden green such as MAC Juxt and black liner with lots of black mascara? I do really like it as a layering gloss. I have paired the gloss with MAC Pink Cabana and Lollipop Loving lipsticks and it makes the pink and coral lipsticks more nude. I don’t think this colour is for everybody but I think it is worth checking out and trying it on at the store.
PS I actually think this would make a very pretty and HAWT HAWT HAWT nail colour. MAC are you listening?
