Every year, MAC offers up holiday kits and sets for giving and receiving. This year, there are three lipglass/lustreglass sets, each with three lipglasses and two lustreglasses, and all of them are in miniature sizes. MAC has them priced at $29.50 a pop, and they denote the value of the set as $35. (Yay, they did the math for me!) Each set is housed in cute, giftable packaging (as pictured above), so they’re incredibly easy to give as holiday gifts.
The majority of the sets contain a mix of permanently available shades, repromoted shades, and the occasional brand-spankin’-new shade. Long-time collectors may want to take a quick glance at their stash to see if they already own a lot of the shades (or need to replace some of their old favorites). I did notice that they repromoted quite a few shades from 2005, which is about four years ago, and I imagine some of those lipglasses may be in need of an update.
Don’t forget — if you like one of the shades that’s permanent but aren’t sure about the rest, consider purchasing it by itself and in full-size! 😉
Overall, I really did like the way these came together. My favorite set was the 5 Models Misbehaving, but I’m also often attracted to bolder lip colors, even if I seldom wear them! 5 Sexy Shenanigans was the lightest/sheerest of the three sets, while 5 Frisky Business was a good mix of soft, medium, and bold.
