MAC's Nutcracker Sweet collection is a gloriously vast affair. We're talking kits, miniatures, a full colour collection, Viva Glam... the whole lot. And it's all clad in a pink-and-purple plastic fantasy and gold embroidery à la nutcracker soldier uniforms, ready for gifting.

In MAC holiday tradition, there are mini kits: Lip Gloss Kits, Pigments and Glitter Kits, Patentpolish Kits, and for the first time, Lipstick Kits in adorable tiny bullets (all RM178).

Your friends will love receiving the themed bags for eyes and lips. The Nutcracker Sweet Eye Bags (RM288), available in plum and smoky, hold cream and powder shadows, liner and mascara, while the Lip Bags in red and nude (RM218) include a Vamplify lipgloss, lipstick and lip liner.

Liquid lipstick favourite Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour also gets its own kit (RM248) with a lipstick and mascara, and the Mineralize Skinfinish Kit (RM248) is paired with a lipstick and lipgloss for sparkle and shine.
