MAC Holiday Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick Kits

The MAC holiday Nutcracker sweet collection was incredibly popular this year and featured kits of miniature playful and chic treasures. Mum and Dad came back from their trip with some of these treats for us from duty-free!

I always wear nude shades; I am not very daring, so the MAC holiday Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit was perfect for me. The kits come in beautiful plastic boxes that are quite hard to actually get the lipsticks out of!

The festive MAC holiday packaging is very different from the usual minimal black MAC is known for. In the Nutcracker Sweet collection, you will find pink and plum stripes, star prints and sparkling gold embroidery. Inside are four little lipsticks with the same bright design theme.

While slightly smaller than a full MAC lipstick there is an enormous amount of lipstick. The shades in the MAC holiday Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit are ‘coordinated lush toffee brown’.

My sisters are far more daring and wear beautiful, bright lip shades, so they received the MAC holiday Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit. These miniatures, as the name suggests, come in candy cane red shades.

We have already had a lot of use out of these lipsticks, a perfect way to build a lipstick collection as I am sure I will never reach the end of every bullet. The lovely lady at MAC duty-free also gave Mum and Dad for us each a MAC matte black makeup box for storing all our MAC Makeup.
