Mac nutcracker sweet nude lipstick set

That's right, I've done it! I bought myself a set from Mac's new collection! If you haven't seen pictures of the new Nutcracker sweet collection from Mac going round then where have you been? It's host to the infamous whisper of guilt highlight, the set of bronze pigments everyone has gone nuts for, and the incredibly cute sets of four mini lipsticks which are what I managed to get my hands on.


The lipstick sets came in two colours, red, or the one I chose which was nude. Each kit had four mini lipsticks in which were of course in a gorgeous holiday packaging which made them look extra special. The shades in mine were Crème cup a cremesheen finish, Kinda sexy a matte, Nouvelle vogue a matte and Whirl a matte.


Crème cup is a Barbie pink shade that thanks to its cremesheen formula isn't too in your face but adds more of a glossy pink look, Kinda sexy is an orange toned nude and a really interesting one on your lips, I've never had a shade like it before but I'm actually really intrigued, Nouvelle vogue is a bright pink shade that reminds me of a darker version of brave although I do believe though that it isn't available to buy at Mac anymore and the only way of getting your hands on it is through this set. The last lipstick Whirl, which was the one I was most excited for is a brown toned nude, described by mac is a dirty rose which I would agree with.


(Swatches are lipsticks left to right)
This set along with the other sets in the collection was incredibly well priced at £26 because a normal lipstick from Mac is £15.50 but in this you get four shades, which yes are mini, for £26. Plus the actual design on the products is gorgeous and the lipsticks come in a little box with a pull out draw which makes them look extra special.


I think I might have to pick up a few other bits from the collection soon and if you want to get your hands on this set then make sure you do it soon because it is limited edition. Thanks for reading.
