I can’t count how many MAC holiday sets I’ve bought over the years. My first good set of brushes came from one of those sets and this years Keepsake kits are just as amazing as ever. I’ve never really paid much attention to the individual products you can get though and this year that changes. The Heirloom Mix Colour Collection has everything you want in a makeup collection; shadows, lip products, liners, nail polishes, etc… All in gorgeous, pigmented shades.
Heirloom Mix Pressed Pigment
l-r Noblesse Oblige, Modern Majesty, Enchantment
Until you see these in person you can’t really get a good grasp of how insanely gorgeous these shadows are. They’re super shimmery, really buildable and just perfect for the holiday season. Modern Majesty is a personal favourite with it’s green pearl in a dark brown base.
Heirloom Mix Glitter in Amethyst
MAC’s glitters are everything you want in a sparkle for the holiday. Amethyst is a really pretty purple that, well, glitters.It’s really loose and you can apply it anywhere you want to sparkle or add it on top of your shadow for extra shine. It works particularly well with the Enchantment Pressed Pigment.
Heirloom Cremesheen Glass in Courting Chic
I’ve never tried Cremesheen Glass before so I was expecting the stickiness of Lipglass. I was so far off base and this might be my new favourite gloss. It’s creamy, non-sticky and you still get that glassy shine that you want. Courting Chic might be the most flattering red gloss I’ve ever tried. It’s more like a sheer red gloss tint with gold shimmer. The second I opened the box, I was blown away by the shade. Putting it on made it even better.
If these are any indication of what I’ve been missing each year by focusing on MAC’s kits, I guess I need to start taking a better look because these are some of my favourite holiday shades all season.
