Fabulousness Holiday Eye Kits (€49)
5 Warm Eyes
5 Natural Eyes
5 Smokey Eyes
I have to say although I absolutely love the packaging of the MAC Eye Kits this year, I'm a little disappointed to see there seems to be a whole lot more packaging and a little less shadow. This year there are only 5 shadows in each palette compared to the usual six. Also 2 of the 5 shadows are significantly smaller than the others. All in all the ranges in colours are good, but for €49, this set isn't as good value as it was in previous years.
Perfectly Plush Brush Kits (€65)
Set 1: Mineralize
Set 2: Advanced
Set 3: Essential
I picked up a set of the Perfectly Plush Mineralize brushes. I have all the brushes in the other two sets so this one seemed like the sensible choice. I'm delighted with the brushes, the bag is cute and a good size for travelling. The inside has a section for holding your brushes and a section for holding a few eyeshadows, or maybe an eye-liner and mascara.
There are only four brushes in this set, however this set of brushes are are made with duo fibre (soft blend of goat and synthetic fibres). The set included the 187 Duo Fibre Brush, the 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush, 286 Duo Fibre Tapered Brush, 282 Duo Fibre Shader Brush. The other two sets (picture below) are also fantastic brush sets, I particularly love the Essential set which feature brilliant blue bristles and are a great range of brushes for starting out.
MAC's holiday collection is now available at your local MAC counter. In Ireland these sets are available in all Brown Thomas Stores, and some BT2 stores. There are face and lips kits also available in the Holiday range, so have a look on the MAC website for full details. Beware these brush and eye shadow sets sell out every year, so pick one up sooner rather than later!
