MAC Holiday Collection- Passions of Red & Little Darlings

.



I know, I am SO behind on everything, including the latest MAC holiday collections! I made a goal to catch up this weekend on all your questions/emails/comments, as well as all the product reviews you ladies are waiting for. I have TONS of stuff to review it's insane. My vanity and bathroom look like a tornado hit it with all the products just sprawled across his sink and mine, the BF is probably getting annoyed since my stuff is all over the place haha.

Anyway, I bought a few things from this year's holiday collection (last week) of course I had to get my hands on the little darlings collection! I love lippies, so the thought of having the pink and neutral lip/lustreglass set made me giddy! For $29.50 each set, that's a steal considering that one lipglass or lustreglass is around $14.50-$15 EACH. And you get 5 good-sized tubes in the holiday set, and they are all really pretty colors. Last year I passed on the lippie sets and instead got the eyeshadow palettes and the cool pigment set, but this year I went the complete opposite where I bought all lippies, and no pigments. (Sorry I forgot to take a pic of the Coral lip set!)

I also bought the Smokey Eyes Palette, I really wasn't going to get ANY of the eyeshadow palettes from Passions of Red simply because most of the colors are dupable with some of MAC's permanent colors OR they were just bleh to me considering I still have BARELY touched LAST YEAR'S holiday palettes. Even though I have last year's smokey eye palette, I wanted to get this year's because last year's was more on the smokey brown side, rather than the grey's and blacks and I thought it would just be a nice palette to have. (Also in case any of you are interested, I am selling LAST YEAR'S smokey eye palette from the Antiquitease collection since I have only used it twice and probably will never use it again, $30 with shipping, US Residents only, original price was $36, email me).

I also included a picture of the WARM eyes palette that my friend got, she let me play with it to get these pics, LOL.













No base, just lipgloss...
Swatches from the PINK set (my favorite is "Song & Dance" and some of the swatches are crappy since I was in a hurry!):










Swatches from the NEUTRAL set (my favorite is "love nectar"):
















Using the smokey eyes palette (inner lid used a bit of "Vex" which is NOT in the palette, but it's a permanent e/s):

thanks for the swatches my dear, i was thinking of purchasing the "little darlings" of the pink lipglass and lustreglass it suits you well i might have to get me one of those for xmas for myself hahaha.

J said...

Thank you SO MUCH for these swatches Vanessa!! I've been wanting to see swatches for these for soo long!! :D Have to wait even longer for these to launch here though... the MAC MA told me that they'll only be available a week before Christmas! *wails*

Like you i'm skipping the palettes this year, simply because 1. i hardly used the one from last year and 2. this year's colors are a little too "neutral" for my liking! bring on another palette like the Manish Aurora one already! haha!! :D

Have a great weekend ahead my friend! :)

i got the smokey palette too...it has come in pretty handy for a good old smokey eye...but now you make me want the lippies, i was trying to be good sis! what r u getting from the sephora friends and family sale?

beauty parler said...

Loving Song&Dance and LoveNectar! Also, the eyeshadows look great. I want to get the Smoky Eyes Palette, as Satin Taupe & Carbon are a must have in any beauty kit.

Anastasia said...

Argh! We don't have the Little Darlings here. All we've got is a set with 2 lipsticks and one mini lipglass in, which is £28 - roughly $60, and the lipsticks are normally about £12 anyway.

Maybe an American will buy one and post it to me >:

Roxy said...

i loove the smokey eyes palette! especially because i didn't already have satin taupe and carbon =] i'm trying to convince myself to NOT buy the little darlinsg! lol

Ethereal Prey said...

so red and pretty! sighs. they all look so pretty! damn you MAC!

MrsDiaz said...

Hi Ness,

Funny thing I haven't used my smokey eye palette from last year much either! Soo sad. I probably touched it once or twice as well. I do agree that this year's smokey eye palette is much better in terms of color. Miss ya girl!

kae said...

song and dance looks really pretty! does it kind of look like sock hop? i THOUGHT i wanted the neutral lips set, but your pink swatches make me want the pink set!

Jenna said...

I still can't decide if I want to pick up any of the lipglass sets! They sure are purdy... Are they at all sticky?

Vanessa said...

Hi Jenna! How are you? Yes they are sticky, I personally like it a bit sticky because it stays on longer for me and the colors are so pretty and pigmented!

Ai said...

love the "song&dance" and the pallettes look YUMMY!

Phyrra said...

The soft sparkle eye pencils look gorgeous.
Little VI looks great! (I could swear I have that one)
Fleur de light looks great on you, too.

Jasmine8504 said...

Sweet Potato said...

Dear Vanessa,

Thank you so much for keeping me up to date with all the new goodies out for the season! Your blog is one of my favorites! Keep them coming!

Stephanie T said...

I love the pink lipglass set!

Alyson said...

Ack, I had made up my mind that I didn't want the little darlings pink set, but you're giving me second thoughts!!! I already have Magnetique, but it's one of my favorite MAC glosses ever made so a little mini backup wouldn't be a bad idea. Oy.

I ADORE that smokey palette. Dark Devotion is my new favorite eyeliner. You are gonna have a blast with that palette...not a single dud shade in the bunch.

Emilita said...

Thanks for all the eye candy and swatches!

yumyumsushi said...

i haven't bought anything from mac in a long time either. interesting though..you make me wanna get all these eye liners you've been grabbing.

& i really love your lips. the shape & volume of them. haha i feel so stupid, i swear i stare at them when you do the lip swatches hahaha ...okay that sounded creepy...

Crystal Gale said...

hi vanessa!

as usual, I'm lurking at your site again hehe..I stopped lemming for MAC a few months ago because of the high price here but your swatches of the eyeliners want me to go to the nearest MAC store and buy myself a set haha..they are available in little sizes too right? coz I can't seem to finish full sizes stuff anyways :)

sab said...

wow! you did a lot of MAC hauling! :)

i love the lipgloss and the eye pencils look nice!

L said...

yes yes vanessa, thank u for the swatches. i haven't bought anything from MAC for a GOOOOOOOD minute and am kinda reluctant til maybe the end of this month. i wanna get some holiday stuff but wasnt sure if i wanted the e/s or lippies. i think ima go with the lippies now! xo!

paperdollrevenge said...

Looks like fun! I wasn't even thinking about the Little Darlings lippie set but looking at your post and swatches, gah I might have to! lol Thanks for the review.

thanks for sharing.

Pau F said...

Loooove love your site, and the look you did with the smokey palette is to die for, do you happen to have the breakdown?
thanks a lot!!

Phoebeeautiful said...

thanks for the swatches! the nearest counter didnt have any of the palettes in stock [they were waiting for another order] so i was just thinking about ordering online. i think im gonna have to pass now.. the holiday palettes from last year were so much prettier and the colors and pretty much the same as 2-3 years back.

i hope a mac collection will come out soon that catches my eye cause lately its just been the same ol' blah =/

yummy411 said...

great swatches.. i can't decide on a lipglass set cuz i have many of the ones included in the sets from past collections/holiday sets =p

Kelly® said...
