MAC Stroke of Midnight Collection

For all those devoted to life from dusk to dawn. After-dark glamour comes in mini kits for seductive spirits seeking nocturnal pleasures. Lavish sets evoke the intoxicating essence of evenings out, in glossy black boxes embellished in white and gold. M·A·C Stroke of Midnight Pigments and Glitter features five convenient jars, giving you smoky eyes in three scintillating shade waves. Stroke of Midnight Lip Gloss provides high-impact colour in three sumptuous shades of coral, pink and nude. With just a whisper of polish for your pout, Stroke of Midnight Tastitints condition in barely-there shades and four different flavours: peppermint, vanilla, lavender and guava.

Hi Rachael! You are too funny!!! Right before reading your comment I was saying the same thing 🙁 lol. I love Mac and this wole collection is GORGEOUS!!! Nit fair Mac does not give us time to breath with all these beauties.

Damn…I heard the holiday brush sets sucked quality wise. I had a set from 2003 that I lost. They were pretty decent. I keep hoping they turn up!

Oh well… I was hoping the set that has the countouring brush would be good enough to buy since im planing of getting the 168, 239 and 217, im better of getting the full sizes ones.. I dont mind paying a little extra as long its good quality

After skipping most of the launches for MAC this season, I’m liking the look of this one…please please MAC lets do these palettes justice for once!!

Hi Christine! By any chance, do you know the colors for the pink toned lip/cheek bag? I didn’t see those listed and I’m loving them! Thank you 🙂

Again with CARBON… Carbon in so many of these, it seems! I will be eager to read your reviews of these, Christine. I honestly haven neither the room nor the desire for more makeup but that will probably change and your impressions will be very welcome to me.

Love the packaging they have done here. It is very 1920’s Art Deco. Almost has a Gatsby vibe to it. Let’s hope the quality of the product lives up to the pretty packaging.

Oooh, I’m quite excited about a couple of these! Particularly the eye bags. Drat 🙁 Back in Australia now so they will cost double the US price. Is it wrong that I am hoping the quality is bad (like so many MAC collections these days) so I don’t spend as much?!

I give up, MAC used to be so innovative and fresh, this all looks like last years leftovers..palettes are almost exactly like glamordaze ..wow, so very disappointing :/

MAC, I am on my knees here, please, PLEASE, let the eye kits have (uniformly) good pigmentation. I love the packaging, and I will even pay your jacked up Australian prices if you can just make ‘Warm Eyes’ a winner.

I thought Urban Decay had won me completely, but when it comes to Holiday Collection it’s hard to beat MAC.

I’m in love with this collection and I’m willing to buy the Eye Bag Violet and the Lip and Cheek Bag with pink lipstick that wasn’t listed :/ I’m also thinking about the Eye Palette Cool, but I’m gonna wait for swatches to check the colors 😀

xoxo

Christine, i have been going nuts researching online about the lip and cheek sets. I see u listed the coral that has Margin blush, but theres no info on the pink lip and cheek bag. Any chance u know anything about it??? Thanku for ur help

thanku for answering i was thinking maybe they decided not to release that set and was getting sad!! Wish i knew if they were re-promotes or not lol! I will keep my eye out for the info or when i go to mac tomorrow i will ask them!!

Love the makeup bags and sets, however I wish they would offer limited edition colors in these sets, especially for the price point. I would also like to see more beige, bronze, gold, brown, nude tones in their holiday collections, HATE these bold colors they’re coming out with, also am sick of the pink tones they’re coming out with, they’re always the blue-pink or the dreadful peach pink that blends in with your lip, not the nice light pink similar to underage.
