Christmas beauty products have just been rolled out by all the big brands and there are some amazingly sweet products to choose from. Whether it’s a gift for a loved one, or a treat for yourself (how could you resist?), there is a plethora of choices.
First off, MAC have released a huge collection called Nutcracker Sweet. No other collection has caught my eye like this year’s holiday range. Everything is perfect, from the packaging – fuchsia, burgundy and gold – to the products themselves. The collection is very pink and girly, and I adore it. The pink is a very bright Barbie gloss and the purple is dark and has a satin finish.
It is so hard to narrow my wishlist down, but I have managed. The Magic Dust Powder (Yum Yum Yum) is the perfect pink blush with a gold sheen, it would look beautiful on fair-skinned women. I love pale pink lipsticks, so naturally the Kingdom of Secrets Lipstick is the one I gravitate to from this collection. It is a milky pink, and once again would most suit lighter skin tones.
Another pretty pink lipstick (Be Fabulous) can be found in the Nutcracker Sweet Mineralize Kit. It also comes with a pink lipgloss (Elegantly Elegant) and highlighter (Lightscapade). With every beauty lover obsessed with highlighting at the moment, this highlighter has a gorgeous shimmer in pale blue, peach and pink shades. These products come in a great sized bag that is so gorgeous and is roomy enough for storing enough makeup on a trip away.
I also love the Nutcracker Sweet Essential Brush Kit. It contains a mni collection of must-have brushes: foundation brush, powder/blush brush, fluff brush, eyeliner brush and lip brush. The handles are bright pink with gold accents. They come in a cute striped pouch.
I haven’t had a chance to try out these products, as I just got them this evening. I will try them out tomorrow. This collection is available now at MAC stores and here.
