My favorite (Make Up Related) Christmas Present

Unfortunately it’s now safe to say that Christmas is well and truly over and New Years Eve is coming up soon. I’ve had a very lovely Christmas but now I’m excited to get back into blogging on a regular basis again. I, personally, genuinely enjoy reading the ‘What I got for Christmas’ posts but they are quite controversial and I definitely understand why. Hence, I decided not to do one but to instead just share my favorite make up item I got for Christmas. In general I got some lovely bits for Christmas but I mainly got money because I’m leaving for London tonight, where I’ll be staying until Friday, so my main wish for Christmas this year was some money, so I can buy lots of make up and other cool things over there.

But now back to my favorite present, which I actually got from my brother. One of my favorite make up brands has always been Mac. Mac was the first make up brand I ever really fell for, so I consider it to be kind of my first love (make up wise obviously). Each year Mac brings out the most gorgeous holiday collections and one thing I really wished for this year was a set of their pigments and my lovely brother surprised me with one!

I have to admit the first thing that caught my eye was the stunning packaging! I mean, just look at it! It’s so festive and sparkly and just absolutely beautiful! But the pigments themselves are just as beautiful and definitely don’t disappoint. I got the set that includes a mixture of beige and brown pigments as well as some gold glitter.

This was actually the one set I had my eyes one, so I was more than happy to unwrap this beauty¬†under the Christmas tree. All of the shades included in this set (except for maybe the gold glitter which I will only use for special occasions) are perfect if you just want to sparkle up your every day make up as all shades, except for the brown one, are very shimmery. The brown shade is a dark matte one but can you ever go wrong with a matte dark brown shade? I don’t think so as it’s the perfect shade to use in your crease to add some definition to your eyes.

As you can tell I’m very much in love with this set and all of the pigments. I tried to take some pictures of the swatches but unfortunately my iPhone can’t do them justice. They are way more beautiful in reality!

As a little side not all of the fur items in this post are faux fur!

What is your favorite gift you received for Christmas this year?

  1. Oh wow I love that! The packaging is just… awesome! I’ve never seen something like this before. It’s just… the perfect box! And as you’ve said all pigments are awesome, specially the one in the middle of your arm (in my opinion).
    I’d like to go to London too! I traveled there like hm… 4 years ago I think, and I’d like to go again because it’s an amazing city! Hope you can enjoy it!
    Kisses!!

  2. Hey Sophie, glad you got some money for Christmas to spend. I like to spend money on a lot of things too. I think it’s fun and good therapy. I do need to save my money. My favorite gift was ‘Ready To Rumble’ Pro Wrestling movie from 2000 I watched it on Christmas it was a lot of fun brought back a lot of great memories when I was young and wrestling was big. I hope you have fun and buy yourself some nice things you enjoy. I hope you have a great New Years Eve! I am excited for New Years! I look forward to 2015 hope it’s a great year for you!
