Apart from the newest holiday collection MAC Cosmetics have released this season like the MAC Glamour Daze, one my favourite holiday looks always involve a hint of glitter and sheer. It helps that MAC’s Holiday look last year, Glitter and Ice, happens to be one of my favourite holiday makeup.
Inspired by ice skating, the 34-piece collection gave me two items to love – the MAC Glitter and Ice Snow Season eyeshadow and the MAC Glitter and Ice Eloquent Air lipstick. And what do you think about the packaging? Quite a refreshing look from the usual matte black containers, huh?
THE MAC Snow Season (soft taupe melange) is a rosy champagne with a golden shimmer and sheen. It has a frosted, almost metallic-like finish. By rosy – the finish is pinker than usual. This is great to use as a base color with a slight tinge of shimmer on your brow bone. I have to pair it with a darker shade of brown or light black eyeshadow to contour the eyelids as using the eyeshadow alone makes it look dry. I guess that is usually the case with mineralized eyeshadows – it is not as pigmented as the classic eyeshadows of MAC like MAC ricepaper.
MAC’s Glitter and Ice Eloquent Air is a bright and shimmery yet sheer lipstick that you can use when the rest of your makeup is all focused up north and you wouldn’t want to steal the attention away down south. Its shimmery than usual also and the finish is like eating glazed donuts – vanilla-flavored glazed donuts.
Can’t wait to show you my FOTD – Face of the Day look with these shades and swatches. Sorry they are no longer available since the MAC Glitter and Ice is a limited 34-piece collection. Till next, toodles!
