MAC Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments & Glitter Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments & Glitter Kit
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments & Glitter Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Bronze Pigments & Glitter Kit ($35.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains three Pigments and one Glitter. Of the two sets available, this one is my preference as three of the four shades are Pigments, which make them more usable and versatile. MAC’s Glitter formula, while it might say it can be used alone, needs an adhesive companion product to function well, and it is not eye safe.

MAC Pigment is supposed to have “buildable coverage” with “rich colour” and a long-wearing formula. MAC’s Pigments have more to them that really helps the powder blend and bind together, so they can be used dry or damp but do not need a primer or mixing medium to function. I tend to get eight-hour wear with most shades, and most shades are medium to opaque dry and fully opaque damp. The more finely-milled, almost satin-like in feel, shades tend to be a bit sheerer overall.

MAC Glitter is supposed to have a “high-level sparkle effect” that can be used on face, body, and hair (but it “not recommended for use around eyes”) and “applied directly to the skin or combined with [other] products.” They really can’t be used on their own, because it is just loose glitter, so without using some other product, it gets everywhere and doesn’t stay where you’ve applied it. It can work using an adhesive base or primer (Too Faced Glitter Insurance, Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy, etc.). I don’t love that the Glitters are included in holiday kits, because they are listed as “not eye-safe.” I would rather four eye-safe Pigments. Since MAC did state that they can be applied directly to skin, I tested them on cheeks. The swatches are over Too Faced Glitter Insurance, which is an adhesive base.

Value

  • Pigment: $22.00 for 0.15 oz. or $146.67/oz.
  • Glitter: $22.00 for 0.15 oz. or $146.67/oz.
  • Set Values: $35.20 worth of Pigment, $8.80 worth of Glitter
  • Total Value: $44.00

* Note: Some pigments are sold as “Sized to Go,” which are priced at $10.00 for 0.09 oz. or $111.11/oz. I normally use the price per ounce of full sized products to determine value, but I wanted to point out that mini Pigments are also available (and are, oddly, a better value, by price per ounce, than full size).

Sugar Rush is a light beige with warmer undertones and iridescent opal shimmer that gave it a cooler overtone. It had very sheer coverage dry, and it was semi-opaque when I tried using it damp. The consistency was incredibly finely-milled and silky, which I think made it prone to sheering out. It was better as an inner tear duct/corner highlighter or dusted over the tops of cheeks as a highlighter rather than an all-over lid shade. It lasted seven hours on the lid/seven and a half hours on the cheeks (as a highlighter). Colour Pop Acorn (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). NARS Topless (LE, $29.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Phloof! (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Dulcinee #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Stardream is a medium-dark, copper-brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, and it was darker, brighter, and fully opaque when applied damp. The consistency was smooth, blendable, and easy to apply to the skin as it covered evenly and did not sheer out too readily. It wore well for eight hours on me. LORAC Cider (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). City Color Cleo (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). The Estee Edit Swerve (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Handsome Prince is a rich, medium-dark reddish brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable on the skin, and it tended to have a more luminous finish as it was worked on the skin. It had medium, buildable coverage; the dry application was closer to medium, while the damp application was fully opaque. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. Tarte Whiskey (LE, $14.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Divine Decadence (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NYX Bedroom Eyes (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Romantico (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Fez (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Honeymoon #2 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Reigning Riches is a muted, medium-dark red with warmer, coppery undertones in a small-to-medium particle size. It is not an ultra-fine glitter, but it is not large, chunky glitter either. It does not work without an adhesive base, as used on its own, it sheered away easily, did not stay where it was applied, and had virtually no real wear. Used with an adhesive base, I found it performed as most glitters do over that base–minimal fall out, mostly even coverage. Lit Cosmetics Heartbreaker (P, $12.95) is cooler (85% similar). Makeup Geek Solar Flare (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Reflects Rust (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Mineralize Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Mineralize Kit
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Mineralize Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Mineralize Kit ($55.00 for 0.46 oz.) includes a full-sized Mineralize Rich Lipstick, full-sized Mineralize Lipglass, and a miniature sized Mineralize Skinfinish. The lipstick and highlighter are both part of the permanent range, while the gloss is new and exclusive to the set. The kit comes with a large, zippered makeup “box” (less of a bag, more of a rectangular box where the top zips open). The highlighter is the best part of the set, which can be purchased individually (but in full size); the lipstick and lipgloss are misses for me.

Value

  • Mineralize Rich Lipstick: $25.00 for 0.14 oz.
  • Mineralize Glass: $25.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.
  • Mineralize Skinfinish: $33.00 for 0.35 oz. or $94.26/oz.
  • Set Values: $25.00 worth of lipstick, $25.00 worth of lipgloss, $11.55 worth of highlighter
  • Total Value: $61.55

Be Fabulous is a light pink with cool, blue undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. The formula is supposed to have medium, buildable coverage with a hydrating feel that lasts six hours. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly but had a tendency to settle into lip lines. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, thin without being clingy or dry, and comfortable to wear over the three and a half hours (but not the six promised) it lasted. The formula felt slightly hydrating overall. MAC Ladies Who Lunch (LE, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Rose Lily (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

MAC Enchantee (LE, $18.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Elegantly Elegant is a light-medium pastel pink with a creamy finish and very fine white pearl. It’s supposed to be a sheer formula with “modern shine.” It had semi-opaque coverage that didn’t look streaky in terms of application, but the color emphasized every single lip line I had on my lips, so it still looked streaky and uneven at a glance. The texture was smooth, lightweight, mostly non-tacky, and comfortable to wear. It lasted for three hours on me. MAC Such Sweeties (LE, $20.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Stay Sweet (LE, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar).

MAC Angel (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lightscapade is a very light, gold-tinted white with a luminous finish. The Mineralize Skinfinish formula is supposed to have a “velvety soft” feel and a “radiant finish” with “sheer coverage.” It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t dusty or powdery in the pan. The powder blended out easily on the skin, and it gave an ethereal glow to the skin that did not emphasize my pores or the natural texture of my skin. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading. MAC Too Chic (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Duo N. 02 (Top) (LE) is darker (95% similar). Cle de Peau Delicate Pink (14) (P, $55.00) is cooler (90% similar). Illamasqua Aurora (P, $24.00)(90% similar). Urban Decay Luminous (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Retro Matte Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Retro Matte Lip Kit
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Retro Matte Lip Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Retro Matte Lip Kit ($45.00 for 0.59 oz.) includes a full sized lipstick, liquid lipstick, and mascara. In this particular set, both the lipstick and liquid lipstick are new, exclusive shades. The Retro Matte lipstick and liquid lipstick formulas tend to be drying, though they are often very long-wearing and pigmented, so they’re both formulas with trade-offs. Some love the long-wearing power of the Retro Matte ranges, while others prefer reapplication with a more comfortable formula.

Value

  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz.
  • Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour: $21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.
  • Mascara: $23.00 for 0.42 fl. oz.
  • Total Value: $61.00*

* Note: if you do not use the mascara or the makeup bag, the value to you would only be $38.00.

Pandemonium is a bright, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was more velvety and smooth with less of the firmness typically associated with Retro Mattes, but I find the velvety consistency to be harder to apply evenly as the texture sometimes thickens on itself or accentuates imperfections on the lips. This shade applied rather well, though it only had semi-opaque coverage. It lasted for five and a half hours but was drying after three hours of wear. MAC Bing Bang Boom (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Pink Sugar (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Fetch (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Jolly Molly (220) (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Virgin Rose (P, $50.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). MAC Silly (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Divine Divine (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bing Bang Boom is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It is a touch brighter and warmer than the lipstick, but they are in the same family. The consistency was thin, so it spread across the lips easily, but it was streakier and harder to get even coverage. It seemed to self-level to some degree, but it was still imperfect, and the coverage was surprisingly only semi-opaque. It lasted for six and a half hours (out of the eight it’s supposed to), and it was drying after four hours of wear. Colour Pop Barely There (P, $5.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pandemonium (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Surratt Beauty A La Mode (P, $34.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Pink Sugar (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a powder highlighter and blush. The Extra Dimension Skinfinishes are supposed to have 10-hour wear, while the Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have six-hour wear.

Tutu is a bright, very light beige with warm, peachy undertones and a metallic finish. It had excellent color payoff paired with a soft, smooth, finely-milled texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan. It seemed smoother than past iterations of this formula, though this color is new (and limited edition). The highlighter applied easily, blended out effortlessly, and lasted for eight hours on me. Even when worn heavily, I didn’t notice any emphasis of my skin’s natural texture with this shade. Anastasia Starlight (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Starlight (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Sin (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

At Dusk is a muted, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The texture was a bit firmer compared to the highlighter, but it wasn’t stiff or difficult to get color payoff out of. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that sat well on the skin, and the finish became more luminous as I buffed and blended the powder on my skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before it started to fade. (This shade has been released before.) Edward Bess Filled with Desire (P, $43.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes a powder highlighter and blush. Both shades are repromotes, though Whisper of Gilt is one of those shades that many wanted to make a return. The Extra Dimension Skinfinishes are supposed to have 10-hour wear, while the Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have six-hour wear.

Whisper of Gilt is a brighter, light-medium gold with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a soft, smooth, and finely-milled consistency; it actually felt smoother and less dry to the touch compared to the standalone version I have from the last release. The powder blended out better, and it was easier to get sheerer coverage, especially as I could use fan and feathery brushes with ease with the finer texture. The finish was more metallic when applied at medium or higher coverage, and it started to emphasize pores just slightly when worn at semi-opaque coverage. It wore well for eight hours on me. Looxi Beauty Centerfold (P, $7.50) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Dripping in Gold (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Becca Prosecco Pop (LE, $38.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented, more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #02 (P, $39.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Angel (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Frenzy (Left) (P) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City Illuminating Powder (LE, $70.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Jubilation (Left) (P) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Yellow Topaz (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Champagne Pop (P, $38.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pieno Sole (LE, $68.00) is darker (90% similar). Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Twilight (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Oh, Darling! (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Strip Highlighter (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pleasure Model is a medium-dark, coppery orange with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The pigmentation was great–full coverage–while the texture was smooth but firmer, so it was easier to control the intensity if you wanted sheerer coverage. It applied well to bare skin, as the finish became more satin-like as I blended and worked the product on my cheeks. The finish was natural and did not emphasize pores. On me, the blush wore for seven and a half hours before fading. This shade is a repromote, and it seemed slightly more muted this time around but overall similar in color and tone.
