My MAC Holiday 2014 Must-Haves

2014-10-08

MAC Cosmetics 2014 Holiday Collections
MAC came with IT this season!  I can’t tell you the last time I’ve been excited about a holiday line up but they commanded all of my attention by releasing 6 holiday collections; Heirloom Mix, Objects of Affection, Viva Glamorous, Keepsakes, Parabal Gurung, and the “Miles of MAC” Hardcover Book.  Initially I was overwhelmed because it’s just so much to take in.  Breaking down my personal must-haves list was no easy task.  I’m a simple girl that’s easy to shop for and love products that can be used well after the holiday season is over when it comes to buying gifts for others.  What better way to make sure you have colors that can be worn all season and options to help you go from day to date night to the club?

 

Viva Glamorous – 6 iconic Viva Glam colors in 1 palette that you can easily toss in your bag and be used everyday

VIVA GLAM I LIPSTICK intense brownish blue-red (matte)

VIVA GLAM II LIPSTICK muted pink beige with shimmer (satin)

VIVA GLAM III LIPSTICK muted brownish plum (matte)

VIVA GLAM IV LIPSTICK neutral pink with pearl (lustre)

VIVA GLAM V LIPSTICK mid-tone rose with gold pearl (frost)

VIVA GLAM VI LIPSTICK terracotta plum with pearl (lustre)

 

Objects of Affection – You can never go wrong with browns and gold they simply pair well with just about every look you do.  I personally love how brown softens looks (when black looks too dark) and gold is always regal and in season.  Shades of blue are always my go-to colors when I want to bring out my brown eyes but with the various shades that include gold tones, dirty grays, and pearl finishes you really can’t go wrong with these sets.

Heirloom Mix – Several selections from this collection but for me personally the “Just Jewels” nail lacquer stood out.  It’s so girly!

NAIL LACQUER – SRP $13.50 US/$16.00 CAD (4)

JUST JEWELS light pink with silvery rainbow pearls (glitter)

 

Keepsakes – OMG!  Massive beauty goods with this collection, you’ll most likely buy everything for all the makeup lovers in your life.  You can’t go wrong with Ruby Woo lipstick but put it in a bag with the lip pencil and lipglass and you can take over the world.  We all have that one friend that loves purple so she’ll appreciate 7 plum tones in 1 palette.  I know I’ve given MAC limited edition and short handled brushes lots of crap over the years but the double-sided ones really do look promising…. I mean I have them on my personal list so I’m just that interested in finding out how they perform.
