If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that it’s my yearly tradition to splash out on the MAC Holiday collections. This year, however, was rather different. I love everything about this year’s collection, it’s hand’s down one of the best and truly stunning, but how much of it did I actually need? The truth is, none of it. I only picked up two items from the collection. This is restraint at it’s finest!
I picked up the Snow Ball Face Bag in Golden. This comes complete as a set, so you get one highlighter (Whisper of Guilt), Face Brush and sequinned makeup bag. The second item I picked up was the Warm Ice Lipstick. I’ll be totally honest, I’ve not swatched or used any of these products and I’ve had them for a few weeks now. With the MAC limited edition collections, I tend not to use them, they are moreso for collection purposes. I know, I know, I have issues, but I can’t bring myself to touch anything that is limited edition with MAC unless I purchase 2 of each – which I DID use to… not anymore!
The packaging is encased with a Gold and Rose Gold finish which reminds me simply of snowflakes! The compact has a Rose Gold tint, whilst the lipstick has a Gold tint. I think it looks so dreamy and stunning and I’m pleased to have added it to my collection.
By the time I decided I wanted the eye shadows, they were sold old out. They went in a flash unfortunately. Overall, I’m happy with what I picked up.
There are still pieces floating around online which are available to purchase here. Did you get anything from this collection?
