MAC Holiday Collection 2012 Review

I went into MAC yesterday to have a look at the new holiday makeup collections and I can confirm that they really are fabulous!  I have to say that this is, without a doubt, the nicest collection that MAC has  brought out yet.  The packaging is to die for obviously but the colour combos are gorgeous and they’re all very wearable too. I wanted the lot, it was so hard to choose my 2 faves but I managed to do that and here they are:

MAC Guilty Passions Lavish Rose Lipgloss Sets €37

They come in 4 different colours, from top to bottom, below:

  • Demure
  • Going Casual
  • Colour Saturation
  • Boys Go Crazy

And here are the swatches to show what they look like on

These are lovely colours that feel as well as look great on.  I would wear the first two during the day and the second two going out at night.
Fabulousness Smoky Eyes Palette €49

There’s 5 shades in this palette and they are, from left to right in the swatches below:

  • Taupeless
  • Satin Taupe
  • Lovespice
  • Spellcaster
  • Blackslip


These are a mix of pinks and purples, my favourite is the first one, which doesn’t show up too well in this photo but it’s a lovely iridescent pink and the last one which is a lovely smoky purple which is a great alternative to black for a smoky eye.  The second last colour is a matte purple but as you can see in the swatch above it doesn’t blend very well so you have to pack it on or else it would work great as a liner.  Overall though it’s a lovely palette and again has really wearable colours that can be worn in the day or at night.

These are great sets that will make any Friend/Sister/Mother/Daughter/Cousin/Girlfriend/Wife very happy to open on Christmas morning.  They are available  in Brown Thomas stores nationwide, so get down there and treat  yourself to a nice early Christmas Prezzie!
