Same I have a love for the pcking but product wise it’s hit or miss with me for Holiday collections. MAC Holiday Divine Desire & Glamour Daze ceoolection with it macorono packaging excited. 😉

Mac is killing me with this packaging! The only good this is nothing is wowing me, especially at those prices! That might have just saved my wallet. If the viva glam set was in a cameo bag like the eyeshadow palettes than I might have had to have it.

I’ll be curious to see if Magic Moor performs well, or better than it did in A Tartan Tale and I wonder if the Satin Taupe here will be like the real deal or like the LE one that you showed recently (the one that was so different that you named it “Satin Taupe 2”). I see they’ve trotted out CARBON yet again! Blech! I am always excited on seeing MAC’s holiday collections but I have to say that I really wish they’d release fewer products but of better quality (and repromote Jardin Aires, but that’s a whole other issue).

I’m new to posting but reading urs couldn’t agree more and u said it best. We all love MAC but I just read Christine’s entire overview (excellent and detailed as always ❤️). I’d have to say that 80% of the products themselves r permanent and 20% LE. The only thing special is packaging. Was so excited until I realized this and then became upset at the prices. Really MAC!? Again my opinion only but my only purchase will be the Beige pigment set since I don’t have those permanent colors and the Viva Glam palette (hoping MAC will still contribute monies from that palette as they do for all VivaGlam lipsticks) and lastly 3 pressed pigments. Otherwise it’s alot of money for the packaging that holds products I can get anytime. My apologies for long msg and thank you for allowing me to vent.

Well… that just made me toss a few things outa my online shopping cart! These will make some lovely gifts! Wonder which ones I will keep… This season of giving is going to be hard.. lol

I actually think the packaging is pretty! But, I know their quality really suffers with these holiday sets. Please tell me they suck, Christine, or I may just get trapped into buying one of the face sets. I bought one last year, but the quality wasn’t great, especially of the included bronzing powder. Looking forward to your reviews!

Go figure. I never post and now I make up lost time. I’m apologizing again for venting but disappointed at the lack of MAC’s creative mind. I read Sherri’s comment and it reminded me of last holiday and the brush sets offered. I bought all for my daughter and our jaws dropped when she opened and used them. Yes the price was less than buying individually. However, huge quality difference. Then one day at Bloomingdales a MAC Mgr and I discussed the “brush” issue and I learned this … Individual brushes r handmade and collection brushes r done in mass production at a factory by a machine. Made sense. Put them side by side and u will see. Wow. Now they r good if u travel often and need a set for that purpose. I ended up replacing the sets with individual ones and what a difference. Hope I made sense. Thx again for allowing me to air myself with all of u. ❤️

I’m not loving any of these releases 🙁 ….maybe I’ll change my mind when I see them in person, but more often than not, MAC Holiday Collection’s prices are quite increased in Mexico, so I would really have to be impressed to buy anything. I’m not at all into the cameo either!

I’ve already pre-ordered the Plum eye bag at my local store, and I’m so excited about it! Although, I was under the impression that the contents of that bag are the items you have listed under the Smoky eye bag. Any chance those descriptions are switched? Awesome job getting all these reviews up for us!

Keeping fingers crossed for the plum eyeshadow palette! Please, please be good! Lip palettes aren’t really my thing, but I like the idea of the Viva Glam’s together.

I’m wondering if the quality is gonna be ok or if it’s gonna be as bad as the past few holiday releases. I’m not holding my breath…
I’ve learnt not to get excited for these holiday sets, too many disappointments!

THERE ARE EXTRA DIMENSION EYESHADOWS!! YAAAAAAAY!! That Smokey Eye Bag is coming HOME with me!!! (Assuming the quality is not horrendously under par!)

Ooooh…sparkly….

I’m loving the items, but the packaging looks a little cheap. I wish they’d put a little more effort into making the cameo packaging look classy.

My beloved Mac guy at nords showed me these in “the book” last week my heart skipped a beat. My order is already placed, now I just need a sugar daddy to pay the bill 🙂 lol

This packaging is sucking me in but I have been BURNED in the past by some poor quality MAC holiday sets so I will definitely look forward to the reviews. I might shell out for the Rihanna Viva Glam bag or one of the brush sets though.

Christine, that second to last photo of the six-shadow palette… what is that called? All of the names are confusing for me and I think that’s going to be something I’ll want. Three of those shadows appear to be red/red-based, which sounds exciting!

Wow, didn’t realize that. I was gonna hold off on the Viva Glam Rihanna Lipsticks but ordered that set too because I wanted one of the bags. Well, with free returns I’ll decide later when it arrives.

I work for MAC and the viva glam palette does NOT come with the bag. It’s a shame because it’s so pretty but it is only for the Rihanna lipstick set.

would you please (pretty please (A) ) do a review of the MAC Keepsakes Collection for Holiday 2014 brushes?
the packaging is nice and the price is good!!! but would you recommend the brushes?

thanks anw!!
