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