MAC 2014 Heirloom Mix Holiday Collection

3 comments

Well hello there!

It's been quite a while since I took up my laptop and wrote a word or two! But alas I am back with another review on the new Mac 2014 Holiday Collection woo hoooo!

Now, for the last few years I have missed out on buying the holiday collection. As usual I leave it way too late and everything sells out. Not this year! 

I actually went online after seeing swatches on Instagram and thought I'd try my luck! And there it was... and everything went black.. You know the feeling yeah?  I had to buy it. Like Pronto. I couldn't afford everything but below are the goodies that kind of just appeared in my basket... Oops!! 

One thing that drew me to this collection was the gorgeous black sparkly packaging and casing. Very festive! 







I usually will always opt for the miniature pigment sets as they are such good value and I never get through a whole fullsize pot of pigment, plus they come with a glitter which for me is a bonus. This set came in at £26.00. The case is so versatile not to mention cute,  that I am re-using it to store other bits of makeup.



Dry Swatches
                  
Wet Swatches
                

I also purchased one of the lipsticks in Tribalist which I think is Limited Edition. It's a Cremesheen finish and still in stock at time of editing and is the perfect colour for Fall or if you are after a vampy lip. I use Nightmoth liner with it to to give it a deeper colour payoff. Tribalist came in at the usual price of £17.00.





I added a couple more things to my basket such as one of the Mineralise blushes as I've had to throw a couple out recently. They do two In the collection - Sweet Sentiment and Modest Blush and both retail at £23.00 each. Sweet Sentiment is also still in stock at time of publishing :)





I picked up the Gold glitter from the Heirloom Mix collection as it's soooo pretty and I didn't already own a gold glitter!  They also do a gorgeous amethyst glitter and both retail at £18.50. I do think this is a little pricy for just a pot of glitter however it will last me forever and ever and .. It's Christmas and I wanted to treat myself ;) So yeah!
