MAC holiday nutcracker sweet collection

MAC holiday nutcracker sweet collection

Every year I wait for the MAC holiday collections in anticipation, it’s the only time I will really buy from MAC collections as In my opinion MAC bring out far to many collections throughout the year and some of them are so awful I’m sorry to say, but they always out do themselves with the holiday collections and I can never resist picking a few things up.

This year is the Launch of nutcracker sweet collection, and the return of the famous highlighter Whisper of guilt, of course I had to have it, I missed out on it all those years ago and regretted it ever since. I definitely wasn’t missing it this time, no way!!

The holiday collections are always big, they have a lot of sets and this year is no different, I only really had my eye on a couple of items, which brings me onto my post today, I just wanted to show you what I recently picked up, so if you wanted you can still grab some bits as I believe a lot of it is still in stock, can you believe it?!

I did have my eye on the lip set with the lip liner, lipstick and gloss but my local store was sold out, and I did want to swatch it in person but I might still buy it as I believe it’s still in stock online.

now on to what I did manage to get hold of.




Bronze pigments and glitter set £26

I don’t own any pigments from MAC, but every year they have a holiday set that I always wish I had got so this year I made sure to get it. If I’m honest I wish the gold glitter was in this set instead of the red/pinky glitter but overall I am happy with this set. The gold set was sold out in my local store but overall I did like more of the shades in this one. I love The packaging as well it’s so cute.








These swatches are really bad I apologise, the lightest shade wasn’t showing up at all on my skin, I hate being pale sometimes, everything just blends into my skin. I do feel like these shades are very Christmassy though and cant wait to create some looks with them.


Sweet copper face compact

As I said before this is the one I wanted the most from the whole collection. It contains extra dimension skin finish in whisper of guilt and extra dimension blush in pleasure model. If I’m honest this is probably more for darker skin tones but I had to get this for the highlighter, I would probably use the blush as a blush  or bronzer topper. It’s stunning though. I love extra dimension highlighters the formula is amazing and this is no different, it’s so creamy and pigmented. If you find this still available in stores I would definitely pick it up just for the limited edition highlighter you wont be disappointed.




Did you manage to pick anything up from this collection? it’s not to late if you haven’t there is still bits left online and in stores. Also This would make the perfect Christmas gift.


Thanks for reading xo
