Mac holiday collection: My new pretties (swatches)

When i saw the Mac holiday (read christmas) collection, i knew i had to get my hands on one of this pretty eyeshadow palettes. So yesterday i raced in time out of the lab to make it ten minutes before closing time still to the Mac counter and there they were. There is 3 eyeshadow palettes to choose from. One with a red, one with a grey and one with a beige undertone. I picked up the beige since it goes best with my very pale skin. The beige palette comes in black. The little packaging is very sturdy and i for sure will keep it once the eyeshadows are empty. The lid is covered with glitter (which does not come off, yay) and a beautiful little broche like figurine. The lid is enclosed by little pearls. To be honest yesterday in the train i just kept staring at it. It is soo pretty.

Inside are eight beautiful brown colours. Four of them are shiny, four are matte. This little palette for sure contains everything for a simple day look but also for a festive look. Alongside comes a two sided brush, it is obviously just a small brush but definitely does the job for traveling or on the go.

 Here are some swatches. The shadows are well pigmented though i layered it a bit for this photo. The consistency is very buttery and blends very well. 
In short i am very very happy with this purchase and i am sooo happy with the pretty festive packaging.


  1. Oooooh hoe mooi, het doosje is zo mooi maar ook de kleuren erin

  2. Wow, this looks lovely! I've never bought any MAC products before because it's hard for me to get to a counter. Thinking of treating myself online so swatches and reviews like this are really helping me to make a decision! Thanks hun, very helpful post!


  3. Ohmygod. Dit palet is echt heel erg mooi. Het doosje is ook geweldig. MAC verrast me echt steeds weer met hun mooie producten en verpakkingen.
