For the first time this year it feels like Christmas is round the corner, why? Because MAC's 'Heirloom Mix' collection landed on my desk last week.
There's something about the MAC Holiday Collection that always gives me that festive feeling. Maybe because, for as long as I can remember I've always purchased a MAC holiday palette around the Christmas period! I seem to have quite the collection..
The ones I'm wearing..
'Salon Rouge' Lipstick
I initially thought this red looked quite similar to MAC's Russian Red but it's much deeper, with an apparent wine tone to it. It's surprising how hydrating this lipstick feels on considering the finish is a matte. I love the richness of this colour, it's very appropriate for the season.
'Sweet Sentiment' Mineralize Blush
This blusher is a lot pinker than I would usually go for, it has an obvious mauve/plum tone to it but it's very pretty once applied, almost doll like. I'd forgotten how nice the mineralize blushers are to apply, they feel so lightweight and have a lovely iridescent finish.
The ones I'm not wearing
'Regal Affair' Mini Pressed Pigment
'Regal Affair' has some serious sparkle to offer, it's a white base with a silver/pearl finish. I always find these colours hard to work with, they often look quite cold on my complexion but I absolutely adore the texture of this product. With just one swipe you can see how pigmented these are, they feel smooth and they shimmer so beautifully! Who knows when it gets closer to Christmas I might have a play with this and go with the whole ice queen theme!
'Social Season' Cremesheen Glass
I remember when MAC first launched dazzle lip glass, these remind me of them - I was obsessed with sparkle in those days! This would have been a colour young Mouldy would have instantly been drawn to. These days it's the kind of lip gloss I would apply over a deep dark berry lipstick to add dimension.
So there you have a sneak peak of a small selection of what's to come from MAC's holiday collection! Are you looking forward to this?
MAC Heirloom Mix launches in the US at the end of the month and here in the UK in November!
Are you guys feeling festive yet? It's only a matter of time before we start hearing Christmas music everywhere we go *cringe* and there's me still trying to hold on to Summer!
Hope you're well
Lots of Love
