This kit was a Christmas present from my boyfriend. I was so happy when I unwrapped it, as I am a huge MAC lipstick ‘lover’. I particularly like their special and limited edition lipsticks as the casing is always beautiful, as well as the color of the lipstick.
This year, or well technically last year in 2017, the Christmas collection from MAC cosmetics was called “the snow ball collection”. It did not only consist of the 12 piece lipstick kit, but also of brush kits, eye compact kits, lipgloss kits and many other kits and sets. I only wished for the lipsticks as that is right up my street. It is arguably the best Kit of the collection!
Out of the 12 lipsticks I think Please Me, Ruby Woo and Velvet Teddy are on my top 3. I mean I like them all really, but if I had to single a few out I’d say it’s those. Party commencing is definitely my least favorite. It is too white based and does not really suit me I think, however I do think the color is pretty. It’s simply a hard shade to pull off for me.
