“I Am THE Makeup Junkie’s ” Marie Breaks Down MAC’s Holiday Collection

MAC Cosmetics launches a new collection almost every 6 weeks. It’s killer on the plastic but it does give you new ways to work color and they are very innovative with products and color — and they aren’t afraid to bring in a color that’s already in the collection because it fits. Smart business I say– for the consumer and them. Why reinvent the wheel?

However when it comes to the HOLIDAYS– that entirely a different story and I bet there will be another collection before the holidays are over because — ahem– there’s that great evening called “New Years Eve” and everyone wants to look super glam that night.

Marie from “I Am THE Makeup Junkie” blog has a great breakdown and a slew of photos about the holiday collection. If you visit her blog, you will see two different posts just on how to wear a certain palette. However that’s not what I am here to talk about– other than to introduce you to the new MAC holiday collection

MAC Always over-does it for the holidays. I feel like I have to take out a second mortgage to get all that I want. This year is no exception. There is a plethora of offerings that will satisfy just about anyone’s gift list. Personally, I am keeping them for myself.

The actual Glitter and Ice collection is somewhat similar to years past, the tone is winter wonderland. I am a warm toned gal but I still love to put on the icy colors and play snow goddess with these products.

Fresh Ice (l), Hold That Pose (r), Snow Season (b) All of the eyeshadows ($21.00) in the Glitter and Ice collection are mineralized (baked) and are beautiful but when worn dry they lack the staying power of the regular shadows MAC is known for. Too bad, because I really love these colors. Oh, well, I will wear them wet or over the paint pots ($18.50)! Two of the three paint pots have nice looks, Let’s Skate was used under one eye look and it did nothing for me.

I got the lighter lipsticks ($15.50) and they are quite pretty. I am very happy with them. The two Beauty Powders ($24.00), Snowglobe and How Beautiful look okay on my skintone but I am pretty pale. I cannot see them on anyone much darker. And we come to the Dazzleglasses ($19.50). What can I say about them. I adore them. Always have, always will. One repromote, Pleasure Principle is my favorite because it is almost holographic in nature. Kicking myself for not picking it up sooner. All in all I am very happy with everything I purchased!

This isn’t the end of Marie’s post. There’s more just to this post HERE plus there’s a second post about another look with the COOL palette (I am personally fond of the WARM palette. The cool one will only wash me out– though I love the look– it’s not for me.

Thank you to Marie for her amazing and insightful post. Makes you want to go shopping — even in the snow. Well check that. You already have more ice than you need. But you do need that glitter!!
Check out her blog and do follow her. She will be appearing again soon!
