You're Going to Want Every Single Item in MAC's Outstanding Holiday Collection
Along with punchy pigments and incredible collaborations, MAC Cosmetics is known for its mesmerizing package. Year after year, the iconic brand turns out cartons, tubes, palettes, and more boasting unique, limited-edition designs that make them total collector's items. For the 2016 holiday season, MAC is gifting us with Nutcracker Sweet, a beautifully wrapped collection that may be the company's most covetable yet.
Festive shades of pink, plum, bronze, and gold punctuate the entire range, which includes everything from glitters and eye pencils to lipsticks and highlighters. However, if the powders and creams don't incite you to purchase (though they will!), the cases they're housed in will completely hook you.
The more colorful take on candy-cane striping and classic nutcracker designs dresses each palette, lipstick tube, and compact. You'll find pink and plum stripes, sparkling gold embroidery, and star prints, many of which are mimicked on the actual products themselves. We're particularly coveting the face palettes, which consist of a blush and highlighter duet that are debossed with the aiguillette of a nutcracker's uniform.
If you plan on shopping the collection this holiday season, there's no need to stuff any of these products in gift bags or wrap them in paper . . . that is, if you can stand to give them away and not keep them for yourself. Their packaging already makes them look like presents! Read on to see all the stunning items, then shop them when they launch on MACCosmetics.com and in stores on Oct. 27.
