Hiyah beauties! Okay so here's a look at some of the stuff I picked up from this year's Holiday sets from MAC. I really really really loved everything they came out with this year. The Glamour Daze collection was ahh-mazing but wasn't able to pick up anything! Luckily the bestie Nessa was sweet enough to pick up Dramatic Encounter for me, which looks like it's going to be F A B ! Anyway, these are the three sets I got. I swatched everything below & I also included some thoughts. I really hope I can pick up the Shy Girl lipstick set also before it disappears. If you're not planning on reading anything else below (lol) please at least read this.. If you haven't picked anything up & are debating picking up something. I highly suggest you skip the eyeshadow kits. Lol they suck. Unless it has certain shadows you think you'll never be able to get & you really really really want. OR unless you just want the kit, cause of the cute packaging. Which is what I did. Cause honestly the shadows aren't anything special. I have better shadows in my cheap 88 palettes. So this is definitely "paying for the brand" at its best/worst.
Guilty Passions: Brilliantly Cool
Brilliantly Cool Crush Pigments: This set is awesome! I already had Moss Garden from the Butterfly Party pigments that came out earlier this year with the Vera Collection which I hauled here. The "I've Got A Crush On You" pigment looks so much like their "Blue Brown" pigment. I swatched & compared them both in the pics below. They are almost exact. I think the new one has more green in it, while Blue Brown is more, well.. blue & isn't as obvous as the Crush one. Overall I really love these metallic pigments. I think they're gorgeous.
Luxorious Pink Lip Set.

Primped Out Luxorious Pink Lip Set: I loooove this set! This comes with the leopard print cosmetic bag which is so pretty. The lipstick is described as a blue pink & in pictures, it does look like that. But irl, it looks more like a reddish pink on me. This set is genius because if you wear all three things together, it really does look absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend this set to anyone who loves a pink gorgeous lip. Also, how cute are the bows in this collection? I love it.
Fabulousness: Smokey Eyes
Smoky Eyes Kit: I'll start on a good note. The packaging to these are absolutely adorable. I love the design & the fabric. I love how cute it looks. But I'm telling you now, I won't be using the shadows in this at all. They're not the kind I like. I'm not comfortable using these type of shadows. I don't like the color payoff.. & most importantly I really don't like any of the colors. Spellcaster is not at all like it looks. It looks like a pretty dark purple color but swatched, it looks like a dark gray. Black Slip is prob the only color I'd wear but it's honestly still nothing special. As soon as I swatched this kit, I put it back in its pretty pink box & put it away. I love it for packaging sakes. I think it's gorgeous & I don't regret buying it. But it is pretty useless to me. Haha. These are just MY thoughts though.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed the swatches! xx
