MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Do It Up: A HAWT Pink Lip

Published in: MAC Makeup


I hope you’re having a great Friday, chicas!


How was your Thursday night? Mine was fairly chill. I got takeout Chinese food, played with some MAC lippies and watched Management on DVD. Have you seen it? Starring Steve Zahn and Jennifer Aniston? It flew under my radar when it came out earlier this year, but I liked it way more than I thought I would. I don’t think its Rottentomatoes score does it justice (46%).

I’ve been playing with a couple of the lip products from MAC’s recent DSquared and Dazzleglass Creme launches, and I think I’ve found a hawt new pink lip look.

What you need

From left to right: MAC Cremestick Liner in Pink Treat, MAC DSquared Tinted Lip Conditioner in Fuchsia Fix and MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Do It Up


  • Start by lining lips with a pink lip pencil.
  • With your lip brush, apply a layer of your pink lip balm or conditioner; blot with a tissue.
  • Finish with a sparkly layer of shimmery pink gloss.

All done!

Consider pairing with…

  • A simple cat eye with black, navy or plum liquid or gel liner and loads of mascara.
  • Cool eyeshadow colors in silver, navy blue, light green or teal.
  • A hot pink blush like MAC Dollymix ($19) and false lashes.

I’m like a headless chicken right now, running all over town doing errands. Sunday morning is the final day of the move, though, so there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. That’s when we move what little furniture we have.


Let me know how you’re doing.

Talk soon. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Your money could work overtime today with a small donation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month using this widget. I’ll match every dollar given up to $250 total, so $5 right here and now would work like $10! I’m just sayin’… 🙂

    *WANT* all of those products! Do it up was the shade I was most interested in from the collection, and this confirms my decision!

    Last night I went on a pub crawl – it was lots of fun! Good luck with the move… At least it’s almost over!

      Hi Tiffany,

      Pub crawls are a blast! I wish I could’ve been there. 🙂

      The Dazzleglass Cremes can be drying on their own — do you have a good lip balm or conditioner to wear beneath?

    Althought I am not a fan of pink your lips look great!
    I also had Chinese food but I made it myself! It was SO tasty.
    Just finished watching Woody Alen’s Match Point. There was such an amazing apartment in this movie!

    That is hawt! Seriously, you are rocking that lip. I actually have a similar version of that lip that I do. I start off with the fuschia fix, then apply Modesty lipstick, & top it off with NARS Dolce Vita lipgloss. It gives me a deep hot pink lip that I think suits my skin tone pretty well 🙂

    I’ve still to rock a hot pink lip like you, Karen. This one looks gorgeous, I’m glad that MAC released this version of Dazzleglass. So much more worth it, IMO 😀

    Oo, this is stunning. I’d actually use it with an light eyeshadow look. Pixiwoo has this amazing video how to make your eyes look bigger or smaller and I’d use the eyes looking bigger with this lip. It’s a very subtle eye look.

    My Thursday was spent at home sick. I had this 24 hour bug on top of a seriously awful migraine. I was in the ninth circle of hell. I finally beat the migraine for good this afternoon but yesterday was just awful. I’m normally sweating with a migraine. However, I was shivering and chattering my teeth I was so cold from having this weird sick bug! Zena spent some time with me but a thunderstorm rolled in and she ran to the basement and got her “happy cheese” (aka tranquilizer).

    Guess what? I ordered the Little Stinker costume for Zena for Halloween. I can’t wait until it comes to my door to put it on Zena!

    How’s Tabs handling all the boxes and stuff?

    Karen that is amazingly gorgeous! I wear a pink lip probably 90% of the time, this is one I gotta try fo sho!

    What are you up to tonight? I’m just hanging out at home with the felines and canine, maybe gonna watch the last 3 Mad Men episodes of season one. I started following the Mad Men characters on Twitter but thy are too chatty about what’s going on in their lives now so I might have to stop until I get caught up LOL!

      Hi Kelly,

      I’m packing! It’s so not fun. I’m covered in dirt and dust… poor Tabs is not happy!

      When the move is all over I’m gonna rent Mad Men to reward myself.

      How was your Friday?

  13. Hafsa says:

    Nothing much, planning on relaxing with a few good books 🙂 You’ll be moving this weekend, or I should say finishing the move, this weekend, right? Good luck with that!
