I don’t know about you but soon after I first discovered make up I became MAC obsessed. Studio fix foundation was my go-to, between the ages of 17-21 and everyone has dabbled with Ruby Woo lipstick in their time. However, as my love for make up expanded, I sadly left MAC behind. But I was lucky enough to attend the Met Quarter Christmas Press Day a couple of weeks ago and I was re-introduced to the brand and their amazing Snowball Collection.
Honestly, it’s a game-changer.
The event in itself was fab and there were so many amazing pieces to fawn over, ahead of writing up your Christmas list! With standout brands such as Daniel Footwear, Michael Kors and Illamsqua, it’s the perfect one-stop shop to stock up on gorgeous presents for friends and loved ones.
However, for me, the standout presence at the event was the MAC Snowball Collection. It compromises of gorgeous gold and bronze tones. There was an MUA at the event from the MAC store within the Met Quarter, so naturally, I had to take advantage and try a couple of the eye products!
Firstly, I adore the packaging. The golden packaging lipsticks are fab and perfect for unwrapping under the Christmas tree! The highlighters are so pigmented with a bronze/gold finish and I just adored them. I’m quite picky about highlight because I’m quite pale and I don’t like being too blingy, but I loved the golden tones of these from the latest collection.
And, how amazing is the lipstick palette below? Complete with 12 matte shades, varying from light pinky shades to gorgeous deep bronze and purple shades – perfect for glamming up for Christmas parties with a golden smoky eye. Funny that…
I can’t wait to get my hands on a couple of pieces from the collection and I really hope I unwrap one of the lipsticks or eyeshadows on December 25th…
