MAC Shiny Pretty Things holiday 2018


Since 2014 I’ve been purchasing a couple of products from the MAC holiday collections, and this year is no exception. The collection this year is called Shiny Pretty Things, and it has shiny silver packaging. I bought two products; a face palette and a lipstick.


The Nutcracker Sweet peach face compact from the 2016 holiday collection is one of my favourite MAC products of all time. Therefore, I decided to get one of the face compacts from this year’s collection. I got the one in Fair (it also comes in Medium/Deep), and it consists of an Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the shade String Lights, an Extra Dimension blush in the shade Sweater Weather, and an Extra Dimension bronzer in the shade Five-Alarm Kiss. The Nutcracker Sweet compact didn’t include a bronzer, so I’m really happy that MAC included one in this year’s face compacts. I love the Extra Dimension formulas, and I’m really enjoying this product so far. I think it’ll be great for traveling as well.


I always get one of the lipsticks, and from this collection I chose the shade Straight Fire. It’s in a matte metallic finish, which I hadn’t tried from MAC before, but I absolutely love this lipstick. I love the finish and I love the colour. It’s a beautiful deep metallic red; perfect for the holiday season (and autumn and winter in general).
