Mac's Nutcracker Collection | Mini Haul

16 November 2016

Each year Mac bring out a limited edition collection around Christmas time and beauty lovers go craaazy for it, so much so that it always sells out. I decided I'd treat myself to a few bits from this years collection which is themed around The Nutcracker, as it all looked so stunning and I didn't want to miss out.

When the title says 'Mini Haul', I really do mean mini haul as I could only afford two items (student problems!), although I would of loved to try out the other Magic Dust Powder in 'Sweet Vision' and some of the pigments.

The first thing I decided on was the Magic Dust Power in Yum Yum Yum. I'd heard a lot of bloggers raving about Sweet Vision which was unfortunately sold out, but Yum Yum Yum is more suited to me anyway as I'm pale so usually go for more brighter pinks. First of all, I am in love with the packaging on this collection. The whole collection is almost neon pink and a deep plum purple colour, which i think contrast beautifully. I also love that the blush has stars engraved into it, soo pretty!

When applied the blush is a lovely perky pink colour and also has a bit of fine glitter which gives a lovely healthy look. It's not too pigmented but I quite like that as I can either build it up on it's own or use it as a topper paired with another blush.

The next thing I grabbed was a lipstick called So Good For You. It caught my eye as it's described as an intense, cool-toned, matte red lipstick, which just screamed christmas glam to me! I've been on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick and I think I've finally found my match. The first time I applied this lipstick I fell in love. It's just the perfect shade for me and makes your teeth look whiter, what's not to love?! It also has an amazing staying power.

I can't wait to wear these products during the festive season, and I've already decided on wearing So Good For You on Christmas day!

What about you? Have you tried anything from the Nutcracker range this year? If not, which products tickle your fancy? Let me know in the comments, let's chat!
