MAC Le Disko collection - Dazzleshadows review!

Since getting my paws on these gorgeous eyeshadows from MAC's Le Disko collection, I've had the song Freakout in my my head.  And now you will too.  Awwwwwwww freak out!  Le freak, c'est chic.  And this is all because I'm completely enamoured with these eyeshadows.  It's normal to tell people that a collection has it's own theme tune in my head isn't it?

While the collection has five Dazzleglasses and two Superslick Liquid liners and the 247 Flat Shader Brush, it's the twelve Dazzleshadows that steal the show.  I've four of the twelve shades which will give you a bit of a feel for the collection.

Lesley Keane, MAC Senior Artist described what MAC were aiming for when creating this line as wanting a lived in, slept in look.  Is that what they did in the seventies?  They slept with their makeup on?  Because this is a trend I'd be happy to bring back as sometimes the effort of life at the end of a long day is too much and it'd be great to say "Yeah no I'm not taking my makeup off, I'm channelling the seventies today a la Summer 2015 from MAC, ok thanks very much see you in the morning looking like this and I'll be very on trend".

In terms of texture, they feel soft and almost wet and have so much sparkliciousness embedded in the coloured base.  Applying the shade with a brush will give a wash of colour with lots of sparkles, and patting it on with a finger will give more of the base colour and still lots of sparkles.

Try Me On

Try Me On is the least wearable of these four shades on me and is a blue with green undertones and gold sparkles running through it.  I wanted this to be more pigmented than it was and will try it out with different bases.  If aqua hues are for you, then by all means check it out.

She Sparkles

She Sparkles is probably one of the more daytime friendly shades for those of us who like to keep things relatively natural at the office.  It's so hard to describe other than saying it's a pinky cool toned champagne shade with hints of grey to it.  But just look at my eyeballs to see what I mean.  This shade teamed with the darkest shade Let's Boogie, makes for a gorgeous sparkley evening look which I might show you in a video soon!  I've been wearing this to work with Cork eyeshadow in the crease and I love how wide eyed and bushy tailed it makes me look when I'm feeling anything but.

I Like 2 Watch

I Like 2 Watch is the shade that made me utter weird, guttural noises in the meeting.  IT IS STUNNING!  And also one of the hardest ones to photograph because it looks so different depending on the light.  In my photos here it looks like a brown toned golden shade, but it can take on purple and green undertones too.  When lightly applied as a wash of colour, the duochrome aspect of it really shows itself, and packed onto the lid, the gold stands out.

Let's Boogie

You know I'm a massive fan of the smokey eye.  If I could wear one to work every day without people giving me the side eye, I would!  So I knew Let's Boogie and I would get along very well indeed.  In the pan, it looks almost pewter in colour with serious shimmer, but on the eyes, the black definitely takes over the pigmentation stakes, with the sparkles coming a close second.  Applied wet, the sparkles show up more and teamed with a nude lip, you have smokey eye perfection right there.

The Dazzleshadows will set you back €21 and I already have my eyes on two more; Can't Stop Don't Stop which is described as a deep plum purple with sparkles and Boom Boom Room, a light burgundy with emerald sparkles.  I'll be visiting the MAC counter when they launch in July exclusively to Brown Thomas, BT2 and brownthomas.com.
