MAC Cosmetics – Snowball Collection

Golden snowflakes of glow

Start of November is the moment every MAC-junkie waits for every year: the launch of the Holiday Collection. This year MAC is stepping back up (after in my opinion some weaker collections in the past 2 year) with all the golden goodness and a lot elements in the collection.

The Packaging

The packaging is not your classic MAC black sleek packaging, no, they’re going iridescent, sparkly gold packaging! Score and all the wanting! All the snowflakes

What I picked up

I picked up the two individual highlighters called ‘Happy Go Dazzlingly’, a golden highlighter and ‘Here Comes Joy’ a more orangy highlight/contour.

I love both products, they are highly sparkly and pigmented. With the orange one having just the right amount of pigment for my light to medium skin. I like to use shades like ‘Here comes Joy’ to create a gradient between my contour and highlight, it’s a technique I’ve discover through trial and error. The other shade, ‘Happy Go Dazzlingly’, I have a love-hate relationship with. I do like the product and it’s really pigmented, but because it’s so close to my skin color, it just seems to fade and disappear a little bit while using it.

I also picked up on of the (I think) 6 lipstick shades. They were all quite sheer and all having a Frost finish, which is my least favorite kind of MAC lipstick, yet I fell in love with ‘Shimmer & Spice” a pinky rusty bomb of sparkle.

Don’t believe me just swatch

Keep sparkling!
TTFN! Ta Ta For Now!
