Ahh now this I can get on board with. I expressed my dislike of the MAC Holiday 2009 Face Collection earlier this morning but I’m suffering none of the same feelings for the MAC Holiday 2009 Lip and Face Palettes, these I can get excited about.
Jump ahead for the deets!
From the looks of things I think we can all agree these are very nice and very new. Unlike many years past with the standard flip top compact MAC is embracing a new style of eye palette and just an overall revamp of the palettes in general. It’s been a while in between updates and I’ve taken note that these are very different from prior releases, loves it! Also appreciating the babble design with the dominant pinkish, lilac base, very pretty and possibly mirror-like or shiny too?
