Beauty is My Business: Holidays at MAC


For beauty junkies such as myself, the holiday season means limited edition palettes and gift-sets galore! In my opinion, no company has done the limited-edition holiday thing better than MAC Cosmetics.

Every winter they turn out festive collections of well-priced brush sets, adorable palettes of gorgeous shadows, mini-versions of lipglasses and other favourites. Each of the sets are limited-edition and are stocked at great prices in beautiful packaging, so it's not surprising they sell out fast!

Here are my MAC picks for the holiday 2008 season:

Little Darlings: 5 Pink Lipglass and Lustreglass, $35

This set of five mini-sized lip glossses in a variety of pink shades perfectly suits a fair-skinned gal such as myself .

Adoring Carmine: 5 Basic Brushes, $58

This satin and patent brush bag is stocked with five professional metallic red handled brushes that can be used for the eyes, face and lips.


Intriguing Scarlet: 6 Warm Eyes, $44.50

Eyes will pop with this melange of shadows meant to complement brown and hazel eyes. Bonus, the red snakeskin-embossed metal compact includes a mini shadow brush.

Adoring Carmine: 3 Rose Lips, $42

These two full-size rosy lipsticks and mini lipglass are all you need for a classically-adorned pout. This gift is especially decadent in its red-orange patent and satin pouch.

Little Darlings: 5 Softsparkle Eye Pencils, $35

These five mini-eye pencils in peacocked, chocolight, mint, olive, black funk and fab orchid are packaged in a patent cylinder-shaped gift box.
