… And put a dent in your holiday shopping list!
MAC is famous for releasing the coolest themed collections – (who else hoards those sparkly Star Trek inspired lipsticks?) – and the newest holiday collection is just so covetable. Served up with a dollop of saccharine vibes, the collection eschews cloying for sentimental; their holiday 2016 collection is inspired by everyone’s favorite Christmas tradition, the Nutcracker.
The product range offer is a mouthful (take a deep breath!): there are face palettes, brush kits, lipsticks, eye-shadow palettes, lip glosses, metallic pigment kits and patent-polish lip kits on offer. The color palette across the range hits all the high notes – light pastels, moody darks and a heavy focus on iridescence. Standout products include Kingdom of Sweets, a soft, milky pink lipstick; Yum Yum Yum – soft pink with gold pearl powder; and Sugar Plum, a matte dirty grape eyeshadow. (If the names make you want to delve into a tub of ice cream, you’re not alone.)
Nobody does packaging like MAC, and they delivered the ultimate giftable set with this one. The products don’t even need gift-wrapping, what with all the pops of silver, plum, pink and glitter that accent the already exciting products. Just in time to get you cocktail party ready, the MAC Nutcracker Sweet collection is available online from October 20th, and in stores thereafter.
