The M·A·C Stroke of Midnight Holiday Gift Collection makes it easy to shop for the beauty girl on your list. Always highly sought-after, this years’ holiday gift collection gleams in sophisticated gold and black packaging. Inside, the you’ll find the most glamorous assortment of M·A·C makeup.
The M·A·C Stroke of Midnight Holiday Gift Collection includes:
Stroke of Midnight Eye Shadow X5 Compact, which includes five eyeshadows in a variety of textures. In Cool, Warm and Smoky, $59.50.
Stroke of Midnight Face Palette, which is everything you need for a coordinated look. Includes 3 eyeshadows plus Pressed or Bronzing Powder, two Lipsticks and an Eye Kohl! In Warm or Cool, $49.50.
I received a variety of the Stroke of Midnight kits to preview (above) and they are stunning. I really love the Stroke of Midnight Eye Bag in Gold. The Paint Pot in Genuine Treasure is an Antique Gold shade that pairs perfectly with the Blitz and Glitz Fluidline. Buy this one for yourself–trust me, you won’t regret it around holiday party time!
The Stroke of Midnight Eye Palettes include a variety of eyeshadow finishes, including satin, velvet, frost, matte and lustre, depending on which kit you choose. I received the Warm Palette, which includes gold, copper and bronze shades. Very pretty!
The Stroke of Midnight Face Palette is the creme de la creme of gifting. In Warm or Cool (which is the one I received), the colors and textures are all perfectly coordinated. No guesswork involved. In the Cool Palette, the three eyeshadows include Scene, All Races and Magic Moor, plus and Ebony Eye Kohl. The Lipsticks include Sublime (soft mauve lustre) and Romantically Inclined (cool plum cremesheen). This is the only “face” palette I would even consider using, as M·A·C so thoughtfully puts a little door over the lipsticks to protect them from eye/cheek product fallout. That alone is worth it!
I always love the M·A·C limited-edition brush sets; they’re an excellent way to collect some of the specialty brushes or just get the brushes you use regularly in a travel-size. I received the Mineralize Brush Set, all Duo-Fibre brushes that are perfect for use with the Mineralize Skinfinish products. This set includes a 287SE Eye Shadow Brush, 286SE Tapered Blending Brush, 159SE Blush Brush and 187SE Face Brush.
The limited-edition M·A·C Stroke of Midnight Holiday Gift Collection is available now at all M·A·C locations, including Nordstrom and maccosmetics.com. Will you be buying anything from this collection for yourself or to give as a gift? Let me know!
