Back with another holiday preview and this time it’s MAC!
If you’ve been following MAC holiday collections over the years you’ll know it’s usually one mother of a launch; and as always highly hyped and much sought after.

So you are well prepared by the time these launch later this month and won’t miss out on the best deals!

Now onto swatches!
Both Oh, Darling & Shaft of Gold swatched smooth with intense payoff making them the star buy of the collection!
*Swatched these with the help of some Mac Fix plus so they show up better. On their own they do tend to be a little sheerer and flakey (especially Night Thrill which had a very smooth flakey consistency).
My picks from the collection were the two new shades, Dark Side and Evening Rendezvous, since I already own Please Me and All Fired Up.
Of the pencils, my favourite was the Pertol Blue Pearlglide eyeliner. It swatched so smooth and silky with intense vivid colour!
Touching on the lip liners, both Nightmoth & Redd are repromotes, both swatching slightly dry.
Next up, a bit of eyecandy as I take you through the holiday sets!
Starting with my favourites, the Mini Patentpolish sets & Lipstick x 3 kits.
Judging from the height, the Mini Patentpolish sticks were around half the size of their regular counterpart. Personally I love minis AND Patentpolishes, therefore this particular set was a must have! It also comes in a Nude option too. (retail price S$65)
The shades included in the Pink set are – Pleasant, Fearless, Patentpink & Kittenish.
The Nude set includes – Revved Up, Innocent, Mojo-Maker & Sultana
The mini lipstick trio was also a handy little number. I LOVED the pink version. It includes the popular MAC pink, Saint Germain also Let’s Rendezvous and Wined + Dined.
This Mini lipstick x 3 is also available in a coral set, which includes – Pure Zen, Coral Bliss & Lady Danger. (both retailing at S$55)
Next up, the Pigments & Glitters!
This years glitter kits come in 3 colour options. Purple, Gold & Blue. Purple of course was my favourite and contained one matte pigment- Rich Purple, two regular pigments Pink Opal and Kitchmas & a Fuchsia glitter. These sets are priced at S$65 each. Ideal for gifting!
Now on to, Face Compacts. There were two, one warm and one cool.
Both contain three eyeshadows, a beauty powder, two lipstick options and a cream colour base.
These will be retailing at S$110 each with my recommendation being the Cool option. Perfectly curated to deliver a smouldering holiday smokey eye!
Lastly, there’re the popular eyeshadow x 6 kits that release every year. This time around we have them in the three colours, Navy, Warm & Mauve. Each retailing at S$90.
Discussed above was merely a portion of the massive gifting collection. I only featured a few that were available for preview! However I hope you found it a useful read and enjoyed the swatches!
Lastly, thank you for stopping by. I wish you all a great week ahead 🙂
