The Mac Nutcracker Sweet Holiday 2016 collection has launched! This is a heavily praised collection that's gotten a lot of positive exposure in the short time that it's been available. Why? because this is a collection with both eye-catching packaging and great products (some are already soldout). Swatches at the end of the post.
This is also a large launch, with a ton of different pieces. The Mac Magic Dust Eye Shadows are really high quality. They're long wearing, and almost velvety to the touch. Some new shades that we have not seen before are Dark Lullaby, Forward March, and Mustache.
Some of the most sought after pieces of this collection are the face compacts - the Nutcracker Sweet Copper and Sweet Peach face compact. Sweet Copper has basically been sold out since it launched. These are highlighter and bronzer duo's with a cream to powder, glowy finish. Still want more glow? Opt for the Mac Magic Dust Powder's.
There are also a variety of lip gloss and lipstick sets, in the cutest pull out drawers, with gold rope "drawer" pulls. There are also 5 new lipsticks in traditional Mac formulas to talk about; some noteworthy shades are Flamboyish, a bright matte pink and Saucy Little Darling, an intense coral. You can also get Kingdom of Sweets (seen down below), So Good For You (featured above, a gorgeous blue-based red), and Leap of Delight, a matte, true purple.
Below is the Nutcracker Sweet Pink Lip Gloss Set. It retails for $35 and is the best value in the entire collection. You get four glosses, three Cremesheen and one Dazzleglass. The Shades are Fashion Scoop, Rags to Riches, Charm and Twirling.
