And dear lord, there’s MORE???? My wallet was going broke just looking at the first posting! I love mini sizes, and the Nutcracker packaging is so cute, I will need to get at least one of these sets! This looks like a very nice holiday collection

Hi Christine, do you know which of the eyeshadows the person with the black wig in the first picture is wearing? Its so pretty. I really like that kind of pink. It will mean a lot to me. Thanks a lot

It looks a lot like Flamboyish. It seems far too pigmented to be Hopelessly Devoted, but they appear to be similar colors.

Cute packaging and I’m keen to see the eyeshadow quads but, basically, no thanks, MAC. They’re doing it again – a new collection every 2 days, it seems. Who can keep up? (and poor Christine, if she’s going to be trying to test all of these!)

But what I really wanted was the models neon pink eyelashes! I wonder if MAC mixed the magenta pigment with mixing medium and brushed it on her lashes.

That would be amazing! I was totally bummed about the colored mascaras I bought from YSL (including a hot pink). They were awful and I pitched them – later found out that YSL had recalled them due to quality issues…would have been nice to have gotten a refund! I think the only colored one they still carry is the Hippie Green. If I find a good one, I’ll let you know.

Ohhh my weakness is mini lipsticks!! The nude ones are all too light for me and Whirl is too brown…. And I already have 1/2 of the reds in the mini red kit. But gosh!!! It’s so cute!! Maybe I’ll find a friend to split it with 🙂

Heritage Rouge is baaack!!! Getting that pigment kit! Will use ’em with my BR door locked to keep the 28 lb. Krazy Kat out, LoL!

I don’t get the need to incessantly put out LE releases like this. Holiday collections, sure – but every other day? Talk about cannibalizing your own market.

I know, me too. I admit, I’m not a MAC person for a few reasons – but this would have driven me away if I were a fan. i just don’t get what they’re thinking.

I thought I made it out unscathed when I saw the palettes, but those nude lipsticks are kind of calling my name. And I’ve been curious about their pigments too. Yikes. *closes tab*

I wonder what size they are. If they’re the same or smaller than the Bite mini set, it will be an easy pass for me, since I already bought those and can’t see spending more per oz for Mac.

Love the packaging – good job MAC! I am interested in a couple of the Cremesheen glass products – maybe a mini lipstick. And maybe this – and maybe that LOL This is tough!

Wow, this packaging is stunning! I really love it <3 I'll probably pick up the Nude Lipstick kit and the Nude Patentpolish kit, as I don't have any of the shades. Which shocks me lol. Could be some nice holiday gifts in here too 🙂

I am eyeing the red lip gloss kit. I love the creamsheen formula!! I have more than half of the red lipsticks and even though pigments are great I never really use. Help me please avoid spending more money Mac!!! Stopppp
