MAC Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kit Review, SwatchesI look forward to MAC’s holiday collection each year. They have the best gift sets

This year, they really did a beautiful job, with a silver and gold metallic theme.

I knew I had to have the Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kit, despite having several of the shades already. The outer rose gold packaging looked stunning.

Description per the MAC site:

The Small stunning Lipsticks, all bundled up for an extravagant night out. Steal every heart at the party in M·A·C Classics, a kit of 12 crowd-favourite mini Lipsticks, each in colour-matched special deco. What a way to ring in the season. Kiss and be merry.

MAC Snow Ball Mini Lipstick Kit Swatches L-R: Party Commencing, Little Darling, Please Me, Mangrove, Ruby Woo, Rebel, Flat Out Fab, Good Kisser, Diva, Velvet Teddy, Whirl, Stone

Whirl and Velvet Teddy have been go-to shades already for me this fall. Now I have two new-to-me shades that I’m in love with: Please Me and Party Commencing.


This set retails $69.50 for 12 x 1.8 g lipsticks. MAC lists the value at $120!

I think it’s a great deal. I love the color-coordinated packaging and sturdy box to safely hold the lipsticks. It is truly display-worthy.

This would make an excellent gift for the budding lipstick addict!

**Currently out of stock at MAC Cosmetics, and Ulta, though hopefully the set will come back in stock!
