M.A.C. Holiday Collection 2012

Hi Pretties,

One of the nicest things about the festive season is all the amazing collections that are released, and MAC never fails to disappoint.  I instantly fell in love with two beauties, and although I wanted to pick-up everything, I had to choose between them all, and I'm very happy with my choices:
 

M.A.C. 129SE   I   M.A.C. 266SE   I   M.A.C. 226SE   I   M.A.C. 190SE   I   M.A.C. 275SE

Isn't the minty colour too gorgeous, and how cute is the leopard print make-up pouch?  The bristles are super soft, and the collection contains a foundation brush, blush brush, angled brush, eyeshadow brush and eyebrow brush.  The make-up pouch has a gorgeous shiny surface, which means you'll be able to easily wipe off any make-up spillages, it has two small compartments inside, with a beautiful lace effect.
 

M.A.C. Fabulousness 5 Smoky Eyes:
Taupeless
Satin Taupe
Love Spice
Spellcaster
Black Slip
 Such a dainty and girly quilted compact with a pretty bow as the clasp, with 5 colours you'll be able to create a soft and romantic look, or a more vampy smokey look.  The colours are absolutely beautiful, they're all very pigmented as with most MAC eyeshadows, with just a subtle sheen to them.  The compact has a mirror and an eyeshadow brush.  This little beauty is a worthwhile investment, as you'll be able to create various looks.
 
I adored this collection, did you pick up anything?

    1. Unfortunately I don't have the pricing, but I think it was between R300 - R500 which honestly isn't a bad price, as their brushes tend to cost around R200 per brush. :)

    1. I know right, I mean there's nothing wrong being persuaded to buy something purely because the packaging is so cutesy!!! But the eyeshadows are gorgeous too, I've worn it twice now and it's really romantic and pretty looking :) x
