Here’s Every Single Product in the M.A.C. Nutcracker Holiday Collection
I’m used to M.A.C. releasing all kinds of cool collections—in the past year alone, there have been all kinds of capsules, including ones inspired by Selena, the Indian festival of Diwali, Star Trek, and a TSA-friendly one the mini-lover in me almost died over. But now, there’s the M.A.C. Nutcracker Sweet Holiday collection, which features a mind-blowing seven pots of eye shadow, three kohl eyeliners, two tubs of glitter pigment, two highlighters and five lipsticks. What’s more, is that despite the range, I feel compelled to have every. Last. Piece. Which isn’t usually my M.O.—I’ve actually been told I look better without makeup more than once. But since they’re all packaged in confectionary pinks and purples and filled with shades that range from shimmering soft pinks to bold, rich jewel tones—you know, I’m interested. (Have I told you I’m a sucker for packaging?) Thanks to this new slew of offerings, I don’t think I’m going to be able to resist the sweet temptation—or stay on the #NoMakeup train.
In my (seriously humble) opinion, what makes the M.A.C Nutcracker Sweet Holiday Collection so unique —especially when compared to the near-regular release of limited-edition products from the line—are all of the bespoke kits that will be available in addition to the holiday color products shown above.
Take a deep breath: There are a bevy of eye-shadow palettes, face palettes, brush kits, and two sets of mini-lipsticks, lip glosses, and metallic pigments kits as well as two patent polish lip kits. (Need a paper bag? Same.) Everything’s so good, too, because it hits all of the beautiful notes the ballet does—misty, moody, almost dark moments and equally light, dream-like experiences. And with M.A.C.’s unbeatable formulations, they’ve all become makeup must-haves in my book—which yes, I’m aware is going to immediately result in me hoarding some product in my apartment.
If all of that wasn’t enough for you or me (it was), the folks at M.A.C. have #blessed us with six starry makeup pouches complete with full looks. I’m talking all kinds of looks, including everything you’d need for the perfect pink-and-nude glow or that dramatic, vampy lip or plum smoky eye that’s evocative of—you guessed it—a surreal world not unlike the setting of the Nutcracker ballet. Scroll through to see everything now, which will be available on maccosmetics.com and in M.A.C. stores starting October 27. Because while holiday-themed anything has the potential to be downright cheesy, everything in this release can legit replace my entire makeup wardrobe, slowly leading my makeup-free-self towards a berry lip or a smoky eye soon. And will also take up any free space in my one-bedroom. (Not mad.)
