Good Job MAC!!! Holiday Collection 2011

I have to say Good Job MAC!!!!  

I am so impressed on how MAC stepped it up this year with there Ice Parade Holiday 2011 Kits Collection. 

To begin I LOVE the packaging!!!  It's a silver globe glitter ball that when you shake it you see it sparkle. 

Another cool thing is MAC added mini nail polish to there set - Awesome!  

The eyeshadow combinations is perfect!!!  It can be used on everyday basis including any occasion. 

Ladies/Gents - if you're looking to invest in MAC brushes - THIS IS THE TIME!!!!!  The set of brushes is great!!

This is what I purchased: 

It comes in this cute wintery bag!!  I'm holding on to it to fill up some goodies and give someone a nice holiday present, lol

Sparkly Bow...isn't that too cute?!?!!?!

The Box a Set comes in

The SET comes in this pretty silver makeup bag

The compact (the one you shake!)

See the bubble and glitter?

The Set 'Winter Cool' includes the compact, lipstick, lipglass and 3 brushes for $59.99 (price is good)

Swatches: Lipstick on top and Lipglass on bottom

The compact does have a mirror, 3 matte e/s and 1 with shimmer and 1 blush.  

The eyeshadow colors are "warm" so you get a Chocolate dark brown (great on the crease to enhance your look), brown (can be used on lid or crease), Pinky/taupe (good on lid depending on your complexion or over the crease) and last a shimmery champagne/pink (pretty - great for a highlighter or inner lid).  The highlighter eyeshadow looks different on different skin tones so my descriptions are based on mine, which is medium.  When my friend swatch the highlighter e/s, it looked more pink and her skin tone is dark.  I was hesitant about the lipstick and lipgloss since I have so many already I'm trying to stay away from buying any.  However, since I purchased this kit last week, I've been using the lipstick & lipgloss almost everyday - beautiful!  As for the blush, I will describe it as a pinky/mauve, but again all depends on your complexion.  Last, the brushes - you get 3 in this kit (I won't be using.  Instead, I'll give it away as a gift): Powder brush, Angle Brush & Shadow Brush - not bad.
