MAC Cosmetics recently revealed their festive holiday collection for this year and I have to say it is one of the most spectacular collections from the brand I have seen for a while. Nutcracker Sweet will twirl you into a dreamland world of sugarplum glitter, candy cane reds, punchy pinks and magical packaging that promises to get you into the Christmas spirit. I love the Nutcracker ballet so you can understand the excitement when I saw the row of rosy-cheeked nutcrackers appearing in my local store. Nutcracker Sweet is a whimsical collection full of fun, delightful shades and gift sets ideal for popping in a stocking or under the tree.
The collection is vast – 42 pieces in total and contains several eye palettes, highlighters, makeup bags, lip kits, glitter pigments, lip polishes and brushes sets, not to mention the individual items such as the lipsticks, eyeshadows and blushers. I have two of the lipsticks here – Kingdom of Sweets which is a cremesheen formula and is a very milky pink. So Good for You is an intense cool red in a matte formal and is an incredible shade. I love the slight cherry tone to it and I think this one could be my Christmas Day lipstick pick!
The Nutcracker Sweet holiday launch is out now on MAC online and on counters.
