Now that Halloween is over, shopping season has officially begun! Between Sephora’s VIB sale, Black Friday, and the holidays, there’s no shortage of reasons to pull out the Visa and swipe. Well, let me give you one more: M.A.C Nutcracker Sweet.
M.A.C’s latest holiday collection is seriously drool-worthy. Between must-have lip kits, on-trend packaging (stripes! Gold embroidery! Polka dots!), and face pigments that help you indulge your inner artiste, Nutcracker Sweet has something for everyone, whether you’re adventurous or a makeup neophyte.
M.A.C celebrated the holidays with a special makeover event at The Grove in Los Angeles this past weekend. Complete with sugar plum fairies and nutcracker soldiers prancing onstage, the pop-up shop provided makeovers and afforded first dibs opportunities to shop the new line.
Makeup artist Lyndrel (@makeupbylyndie) gave me a rose gold ombré lip using Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments and Glitter Kit. It was perfect for me since I’m a nude-ish lip girl — it gave me just enough of a look-at-me vibe without having to worry about lipstick on my teeth.
Some of my favorites from the collection below:
M.A.C’s holiday collections always sell out, so get yours soon here. If you’ve tried anything from Nutcracker Sweet, I’d love to know what you thought!
