Ahhh finally another piece of the MAC Holiday 2011 Collection that I am liking. Phew I was starting to feel like the Grinch Who Stole the Christmas Makeup Collection from you.
The MAC Iced Delights Lip Bag in Sultry turned into exactly that, a delight!
I’m really a lover of MLBB (my lips but better) lip colors but I don’t own nearly as many as I’d like because they prove difficult shades to find. The MAC Iced Delights Lip Bag is filled with some great shades of pink MLBB shades that I was ecstatic over.
This bag houses two full size products and one mini for $38. Considering MAC Lipsticks are $15 each and Cremesheen Glasses are $18.50 each the cost evens out slightly here as you get a mini Lip Pencil and Lip Bag in the mix for your extra five bucks or so. Not sure if it’s a BIG value but it’s not a rip off either.
Again, I’ll take a moment to rant MAC’s odd bag choice. I guess it’s a personal preference but being privy to numerous MAC Holiday Collections these bags are borderline cheesy compared to bags from past collections but feel free to debate the point with me. This bag reminds me, literally, of a flying saucer.
I’m not much of a Lip Pencil girl so the Boldly Bare Lip Pencil probably won’t get alot of love for me. If you like matchy match lipstick, gloss, and pencil you’ll enjoy this collection however I think Boldly Bare matches the Lipstick and Cremesheen a bit too perfectly resulting in an barely there liner. I normally go a shade darker with lipliner when I use it but I guess it all depends on how you prefer your look.
Now the joy for me was the Cremesheen and Lipstick here. I loved the shades and felt they were perfect nude pinks.
Deelight (Cremesheen) was a lovely shade of dusky pink and I Love Winter (Lipstick) was a similar shade of medium dusky pink.
Paired together they made a delightfully lovely MLBB look!
I’ll be exploring the other lip bags in this collection at my local counter to see if any others are worth hauling. I loved this collection and have hopes the others will prove as lovely.
Are you hauling any of the Iced Delights Lip Bags?
