MAC's Nutcracker Sweet Collection marches into stores
'Tis the season to go a little nuts
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.
Palette fans, look out for the Eye Compacts (RM248) in warm and cool shades, Face Compacts (RM248) in peach and copper, and the Viva Glam Lip Compact (RM178) with three shades. The other Viva Glam offering is a pouch with both the Ariana Grande plum lipstick and glittery lipgloss (RM156).
For your world traveler of a friend, the best gift may be one of the four fuchsia brush sets in striped pouches: a 3-piece essential kit (RM168), a 5-piece basic kit (RM288), a Mineralize brush kit (RM288) and a contour kit (RM288).
Finally, we have the colour collection. Full-sized individual limited edition offerings span lipstick (RM84), eye shadow (RM98), eye pencil (RM85), eye kohl (RM85), pigment (RM98) and pearlescent blushes (RM125).
