MAC Glamour Daze - Holiday Colour

So i may have went a little crazy in MAC (once again) and purchased a few things from their new Christmas collection. I love all of them even if i'm not sure when/how ill use some of them. First off, the "Limited Edition Glamour Daze Packaging" Naw hen. I don't want shiny plastic mac, i like my normal MAC thank you very much, it looks so cheap and tacky, lucky enough whats inside more than makes up for it.

Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel - Catch My Eye  £15.50.

What MAC say "Ultra-smooth, Fluidline's gel formula provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish. Goes on foolproof with a brush in an easy dip-and-stroke action. Long-wearing. Smudge-proof. Lines up in a rich array of colours and finishes. Brush sold separately. Limited-edition Glamour Daze packaging."
This one still had the normal MAC packaging for some reason but im not complaining.

Look at that colour, its quite hard to describe its a grey/brown colour but with the most intense gold shimmer through it. Its going to look amazing on your eyes in winter subtle but sexy. haha

This is the best picture i could get but it doesn't do it any justice. I love to wear this as an eyeliner and then blend out over the lid a little bit :) Its long lasting and good quality like the usual MAC products.

 MAC Amplified Lipstick in Dramatic Encounter £15.50

MAC says "Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street. What made M∙A∙C famous. Limited-edition Glamour Daze packaging."

Now look at that shiny thing there. Wheres the usual sleek MAC packaging, i am not liking it one little bit.
This colour comes out a lot darker than it looks in the bullet which is odd as its usually the other way around. This is described as a deep perple and its pretty accurate. Im all about dark lips at the moment and the fact that this is a great colour and has MAC staying power make it a big win. 

Excuse my ridiculously hairy arm there but look at that colour! Its actually even darker on my lips because i have naturally quite dark lips. Also just a thought, how good do MAC lipsticks smell? They are amazing!

Extra Dimention Skinfinish - Whisper of gilt £21.50

What MAC say
"A liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish. Wears 10 hours. Limited-edition Glamour Daze packaging."

This is now actually sold out online, im not sure if its available anywhere else. This is the one that im not too sure when ill use it but it was too pretty not too buy. I think its a little too gold to use as an effective highlighter during the day but and night it'll look great.

The bottom picture gives the most true likeness swatch. The first stripe is swatched fairly heavily and the second one is blended out. Its so so so pretty. I actually wore this as an eye shadow a few nights ago for a bit of pop. It last a long time as well just as you would expect.

What have you been snapping up from the new MAC collection?

  2. The Mac holiday collection is immense this year-its huge! I've got my eye on the Fabulousness 5 shadow palette in neutral and the lavish lip look bag in Luxurious pink. I'll definitely buying the Quite Coral set too. I agree, the packaging on that lipstick is awful! x

    1. I want almost everything this year:) I actually think the sets are all a little overpriced though:) xxx

  3. Love the look of that lipstick, dunno if my pasty Scots face could get away with it :P
