The aura of couture, the drama of the dressing room, the glamour of getting ready to step out for the holidays. Sweet to sexy, lips to nails. The MAC Glamour Daze Collection is one of the prettiest–and best–holiday makeup collections yet. Read on for the 411…
MAC is getting us ready for the festivities with a holiday collection designed for maximum shimmer. New Extra Dimension formulas for eyes and face are something to get excited about. Add a stroke of Kohl Power Eye Pencil or Fluidline, tons of False Lashes Mascara and you’ve got a look that will dazzle!
I received the following Extra Dimension Eye Shadows ($19.50) to review: Ready to Party – pale lilac, A Natural Flirt – soft peachy nude, Stolen Moment – dark taupe, Round Midnight – dark burgundy, Tall, Dark & Handsome – black with pearl. I’m calling them a hybrid gel-creme to powder formulation–they’re simply fabulous. Easy to apply with my trusty MAC 239 brush, these eye shadows are versatile and long-lasting. I definitely plan on picking up more shades.
The Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($29) is a gorgeous product that has the same feel and technology as the eye shadow, only for your face. I received Whisper of Gilt, a light, soft white gold with shimmery sheen. There is another shade available, Superb, which is a soft peachy nude with multidimensional shimmer. I would definitely recommend this as a soft-finish highlighter or luminizer. So pretty!
I also received the Fluidline ($16.50) in Catch My Eye (cool taupe grey with dazzle pearl). I love the color and the wear is excellent. The Kohl Power Eye Pencils are noteworthy — an intense black base with gold pearl (Orpheus) and green pearl (Mystery). There are two other shades available, Raven and Feline. On lips, I’m loving Glamourdaze, a mid-tone creamy plum lipstick in the cremesheen finish. This color is absolute perfection–perfect for daytime or nighttime. I’m buying a backup of this color!
For nails, four new shades of Nail Lacquer ($17.50) to tempt you: Everything that Glitters–my favorite of the four, which is a black with super multidimensional glitter, Endless Night (pale grey pink with iridescent pearl), Girl Trouble (super glitter pink) and In the Limelight (mid-tone creamy mint).
The MAC Glamour Daze Holiday Collection is available now at all MAC locations, online at Nordstrom and maccosmetics.com. If you only buy one thing from this collection, I’d recommend the Extra Dimension Eye Shadow–it’s that good.
