MAC Le Disko Dazzleshadows: She Sparkles & Boom Boom Room


Who’s ready to shine bright like a diamond with MAC Le Disko Dazzleshadows? I had so much fun playing with these. I don’t know if I’ll ever think I’m too old for glitter – but ask me again in 10 years. 🙂


MAC Le Disko Dazzleshadows Review 2015


MAC says: “Le Disko, where glitter and glamour intoxicate and colour gets physical. It’s all see and be scene as the crowd converges under a sparkling aura of lights and erupts into a dazzling sea of eyes and lips. Stand out, shine on. Live a life where every night is a dance rebellion. It’s a full on colour disco, and you’re the reigning queen.

At this stage in my life, I’m not sure if that description makes me want to go to the club or say home, but it definitely evokes emotion.

In addition to five dazzleglass lip glosses as well as silver and gold liquid liners, I think the most appealing aspect of the collection are the dazzleshadows which MAC describes as “eye shadow with rich, stay-true pigments that impart a beautiful, twinkling sheen”.

As you may have seen in my haul, I purchased two:

Boom Boom Room, a light burgundy with emerald sparkles

She Sparkles, a light gray with silver sparkles

Despite the good amount of sparkle that these shadows contain, they were rather smooth and soft to the touch. Formula wise, I’m going to say right off the bat that there is going to be some fall out during application. I’d already heard this before purchasing, however, so I was prepared. As such, I didn’t even bother trying to apply them dry but went straight for the Fix+. Applied wet they lasted 8+ hours. Note: In the hand swatches, the dazzleshadows are swatched dry, in the “eye looks'” they are applied wet.

Of the two, I definitely think Boom Boom Room is the star of the show. I wasn’t quite able to capture the emerald green sparkles (you can see a little along the lower lash line) but they are definitely there. As you eye catches the light, Boom Boom Room goes from burgundy to emerald to copper & blue. It’s stunning. In the demonstration below, I’ve simply paired Boom Boom Room with a matte black eyeshadow in the crease, some liner and mascara to show it off with minimal distraction. But if you really waned to go all out for a night out, you could break out the falsies (lashes) and do a little more with the brow bone area.

She Sparkles is less multidimensional than Boom Boom Room but still a very pretty colour. There is an ever so slight cool lavender-beige tone to it that makes the overall effect very romantic. Below, I paired with She Sparkles with a satin neutral dark brown shadow in the crease but if I were to do it again, I’d probably go for something cooler. Again, the purpose of this “look” is to single out the dazzleshadow. I think what I like best about this particular shade is that it is more versatile, lending itself better to day wear.

The Dazzleshadows retail for $20,00 USD/£18.50/$24.00 CD. It appears that many are sold out online at MAC UK as well as MAC Canada while MAC US seems to have little more in stock (She Sparkles was still available last time I checked). You could always check your local store (a friend picked these up for me in a Macy’s in the U.S. about 10 days ago). EDIT: The collection is available in Nassau, Bahamas as of Wednesday September 2nd, 2015. Took long enough!


So, what do you think of the MAC Le Disko dazzleshadows? Are they your thing or are you gonna pass?

  1. Boom Boom Room is way too CUTE !!! The 2 looks you created are so beautiful.
    Have a great day Kimmy xo’s

    1. Aww, thank you Ingrid! I hope you’re having a great day as well. xo

  2. I will never be too old for sparkling eyeshadows 🙂 Love these ones, I think I might need to get something like this 🙂 x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    1. Hehe. I am with you, girl. Glitter is so fun. Can’t stop, won’t stop. xo

  3. LOVE both of these! xx


    1. Me too! xo

  4. These are beautiful! Deff never too old for glitter!!!! 😉

    1. That’s right, Julie. You also convinced me I can go heavier with the highlight (“strobing”) 🙂 xo

  5. Dazzleshadow is the bomb! It’s seriously gorgeous!

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    1. They are very, very pretty. If the collection comes to The Bahamas (I purchased these in the States) – I may consider adding a few more.

  6. Oh I love the sparkle! They look absolutely gorgeous on you (:
    Nati xx

    1. Thank you Nati!

  7. These look sooo amazing! I love them so much on you!!! So not boring!! I will definitely give them a try!

    1. Definitely not boring! I hope you enjoy them if you do give them a go. 🙂

  8. Boom Boom Room was the one I gravitated toward too when I was at the store, it is simply gorgeous and unique. I also liked the shade Say It Isn’t So which is a grey taupe colour with a pink reflect – I think you might like that. These look like they would be fall-out city though! But I guess if you’re rocking hardcore DISCO glitter eye shadows, what’s a bit of shimmery flakes on your cheeks? 😉

    1. No joke, that’s exactly what I thought while applying (if you’re rocking hardcore DISCO glitter eye shadows, what’s a bit of shimmery flakes on your cheeks?) Lol. I’m definitely going to think about getting some more but only if the collection makes it way here. I bought these two in the U.S.

  9. I’ve haven’t actually heard too much about these new shadows so I did wonder just how sparkly/gliterry they would be, but it’s good to hear a bit of Fix + helps the fallout. I love the shade Boom Boom Room, it’s amazing how it transforms from one colour to the other depending on how the light hits it x

    Beauty with charm

    1. The Fix+ definitely helps. They are lovely for a bit of a “party look” but you could probably find comparable stuff out there. I’m hoping there’s a cheaper dupe for Boom Boom Room out there. So far I haven’t seen or heard of one, but there must be. 🙂

    Lovely shadows… bit muted for a proper disco though! I like the range but there’s been nothing so stand-out for me that I’ve wanted to splurge on it.

    1. I think She Sparkles is definitely more muted, but Boom Boom Room not so much so. I wasn’t able to capture all of it’s dimensions, but it really, really pops, trust me. 🙂

  10. Oh She Sparkles is so pretty! Actually both shadows are, but I especially like She Sparkles. LOVE the look you created with it too! Nice blending! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa! That means the world coming from you. 🙂 And wouldn’t ya know, my blending skills improve and this look hits the YSL runway: https://instagram.com/p/5EcMjzha2J/?taken-by=parisbmws hehe

  11. These are just so pretty! I saw your pics on IG and I just loved the was these looked on you!

    1. Aww, thank you sweetie. xo

  12. I think these glittery shades look so pretty! I don’t reach for glitters too often myself but have nothing against them especially when they have depths and unique finish like these. Beautiful. 🙂

    1. I don’t use glitters too often myself but I like having a few in my collection. Makes me think of New Years, hehe. 🙂

  13. These colors are gorgeous! Really fab choices! xxx

    1. Thank you! Have you tried anything from the collection?

  14. Boom Boom Room looks so pretty. Great name, too! P.S. One is never too old for glitter. 😉

    1. P.S. I completely agree xo

    I would totally buy these even if I don’t go clubbing that often anymore (my definition of “often” is once every 3 months, lol!). I don’t think they are too much for day wear at all! But you are talking to someone who love sparkly eyes. Haha. Great looks you put together, Kimmy! <3 I can see clearly how each color looks on the skin. 😀

    1. Aww, thank you Jaa! Girl, I don’t remember the last time I was at a club to be honest. Maybe two New Years Eves ago? Lol.

  18. These are both so beautiful. Im definitely still in the stage of loving glitter and sparkle and I might as well enjoy it while Im young enough to get away with it!

    1. I wish there were more socially acceptable occasions to wear glitter. But I still wear it anyway, hehe. xo
