Mac Nutcracker

Ladies, if you are looking for a giftset for someone this Christmas or you are feeling to treat yourself, I think this little gem is for you!

Having a nosey on MAC in my lunch break (as you do), I came across this set of lipsticks which I thought were perfect for me as I LOVE a red lip but also like deeper burgundies and purples as I personally think they compliment my complexion. First off, can we take a moment to appreciate the packaging? *Love-struck eyes*. The set is made up of four miniatures which I would say is the perfect size for a clutch bag on a night out and at £26, this could be the perfect opportunity to try these four shades without committing to one full size at £15.50.

It is from the Christmas holiday Nutcracker collection and also comes in this Nude selection. The shades in the red selection are Mac RedLady DangerDiva and Rebel. These are a combination of Satin and Matte lipsticks and I think perfect for this season and a great way to test some of these infamous Mac shades.

I adore all four shades and have no doubt that these will finish in no time as they are quite small in comparison to a full sized MAC lipstick. As you can see from the wear of Diva, this is the most used in my collection thus far and probably one I will definitely purchase the full size of. Below is how these all appear on my actual lip. Let me know which is your favourite!

Have you bought anything from the Nutcracker collection? Do you own any of these shades full size?

      I know right! I wish they were slightly bigger but I can’t complain for the price x
