MAC HOLIDAY: GLITTER AND ICE AND ICE PARADE

Top of Snowglobe Eye Compact (Note Real Snowglobe!!!)











MAC Always over does it for the holidays. I feel like I have to take out a second mortgage to get all that I want. This year is no exception. There is a plethora of offerings that will satisfy just about anyone’s gift list. Personally, I am keeping them for myself. 

The actual Glitter and Ice collection is somewhat similar to years past, the tone is winter wonderland. I am a warm toned gal but I still love to put on the icy colors and play snow goddess with these products.

All of the eyeshadows ($21.00) in the Glitter and Ice collection are mineralized (baked) and are beautiful but when worn dry they lack the staying power of the regular shadows MAC is known for. Too bad, because I really love these colors. Oh, well, I will wear them wet or over the paint pots ($18.50)! Two of the three paint pots have nice looks, Let’s Skate was used under one eye look and it did nothing for me. I got the lighter lipsticks ($15.50) and they are quite pretty. I am very happy with them. The two Beauty Powders ($24.00), Snowglobe and How Beautiful look okay on my skintone but I am pretty pale. I cannot see them on anyone much darker. And we come to the Dazzleglasses ($19.50). What can I say about them. I adore them. Always have, always will. One repromote, Pleasure Principle is my favorite because it is almost holographic in nature. Kicking myself for not picking it up sooner. All in all I am very happy with everything I purchased!


Cool Snowglobe Eye Compact

As an early holiday present I was treated to the Snowglobe Eyeshadow Compacts ($38.00). There are two compacts, a warm and a cool. Both are quite nice. Each has six eyeshadows. Even though I love warm tones I am actually more drawn to the cool toned one this year. I am in love with purples and this compact is full of shadows that complement green eyes: mauve and purple tones.

Here are a few looks I did with various products from the collections:

In this look I am wearing (from Glitter and Ice) Hold That Pose in the crease, outer edge of the lid and under the eye, Snow Season on the lid and Fresh Ice under the brow. I lined with Silver Skates Technakohl ($16.00) liner on the lid, the usual Black Opulash mascara. My cheeks were shimmering with Snowglobe Beauty powder. Soft Sable Frost lipstick made my lips look alluring.

For this next look I used the Fabulously Festive Facekit ($59.50) in Warm. It has four eyeshadows and one blush. I used Soft Brown in the crease, Omega under the eye and in the outer edge of the lid. Then I defined the crease with Carbon. Golden Flurry was used on the lid and under the brow. The blush, called Seasonal Appeal, was used on the cheeks and really brought out my cheekbones. In this kit there is also a lipstick called Mellowarm, which I used on my lips.

A really pretty look, surprisingly, came from the cool tones of the Snowglobe Eye Compact ($38.00) in Cool. The six shades can be worn in a number of combinations. I took the dark gray in the crease and then the shimmering blue on the outer edge of the lid and under the eye. The glittery silver went on the lid, while the ethereal white that flashes green under the brow. I also eased the look of the gray by using the shimmery purple in the crease. I used the Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Noctural (shimmery silver) to liner my upper lid. Mascara is Opulash in Black. I used Snowglobe Beauty Powder. My favorite part of the look is the Dazzleglass in Pleasure Principle on my lips. Such a beautiful color. I feel like a magpie when I look at it! Smile

As I mentioned earlier, and it bears repeating, I am very happy with everything I purchased. I feel like putting on a gray sweater, these colors and playing out in the snow! If you are interested in any of the above products, just head over to www.maccosmetics.com.
