MAC Love Lace Collection Review — Eyeshadows, Kohl Powers — Swatches, Photos

Today, MAC released Love Lace–a week early (it was originally slated for release on the 26th–but my freestanding store confirmed that Warm & Cozy was still launching the 26th).

It reminds me a bit of last year’s Chill Collection.

I’m going to focus on reviewing the four eyeshadows and three kohl powers in this post, with a follow-up post on the lipsticks and lipglasses, and a final post on the nail lacquer–so stay tuned!

MAC Love Lace Collection Review — Lipsticks, Lipglasses — Swatches, Reviews

I picked up some MAC eyeshadows as a Christmas gift for my sister, but I don’t think I hauled anything myself this week… or maybe I just blocked it out!

I’m pretty excited for Christmas this year, just because I was really practical and may have had one of the more boring wish lists ever… but it’s all stuff I really want and need (OK, most everything).  I can’t wait to get me my Christmas FEAST, too!!

Now… have at it!
