I 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.
Shades + Swatches
The 12 shades are all in satin or matte finishes:
Party Commencing: Clean matte Light neutral pink (Matte)
Little Darling: Clean light nude matte (Matte)
Please Me: Muted-rosy-tinted pink (Matte)
Mangrove: Hot, bright red (Matte)
Ruby Woo: Very matte vivid blue-red (Matte)
Rebel: Midtonal cream plum (Satin)
Flat Out Fab: Bright plum matte (Matte)
Good Kisser: Midtone fuchsia (Matte)
Diva: Intense reddish-burgundy (Matte)
Velvet Teddy: Deep-tone beige (Matte)
Whirl: Dirty Rose (Matte)

Swatches below are in direct sunlight:
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!
