Holiday Gift Guide: For the Beauty Queen - MAC Holiday Collections

It's about that time! It's time to start looking for holiday gifts for loved ones... and maybe even for yourself.  I'm starting off my gift guide with a brand that is one of my personal favorites and that has a reputation for being one of the best out there.  I'm, of course, talking about MAC Cosmetics.

MAC is doing it BIG for the Holiday Season this year with not one, not two, but THREE collections. First of all, lets just talk about how gorgeous the packaging for each of these collections is. You have glitter.  You have the cameo medallions.  And you have pearl strand inspired textures.  Classy, fun, and glamorous.

Objects of Affection/ Pink and Rose Pigments and Glitter
Objects of Affection is a line that is especially loved by beauty pros and bloggers.  This collection is a gorgeously put together series of mini kits featuring color, glitter, and high quality. Some kits contain pigments and glitter while others contain color coordinated lipglasses. Objects of Affection/ Pink and Rose Pigments and Glitter is truly an elegant collection of pink shades ranging from somewhat "nude" pinks to more prominently rosy pinks to an almost plum-pink color. This collection has just enough sparkle to be used to impress during a holiday party or get together.

Keepsakes/Beige Eyes
MAC's Keepsakes Eyes Collection is right up my alley.  We all know I love eye makeup.  And we all know I love the "Nude" eye makeup trend.  The Keepsakes/ Beige Eyes is the perfect combination of two of my makeup related obsessions.  This compact is small enough to fit in your purse, packaged so beautifully that you'll be itching to take it out, and contains such versatile colors that you'll use it again and again. Keepsakes also comes in "Smoky Eyes," [pictured] and "Plum Eyes."  Keepsakes/Plum Eyes is especially appropriate for the holiday season with its rich shades of purple that often coordinate beautifully with the dark greens, golds, and greys worn during the holidays.

Keepsakes/ Smoky Eyes
Now to the Heirloom Mix Collection.  This collection is all about giving that little extra sparkle. Literally.  The Heirloom Mix Lipstick is perfectly contained in a black, silver sparkled packaging.  The color "Sparks of Romance" is true red matte frost.  Its exactly what I think of when I picture the perfect lip look for Christmas Dinner or New Years Eve Party.

The Heirloom Mix Cremesheen Glass also features the black with silver sparkles packaging. With 5 shades ranging from "Romantic Overture," a clear base with sparkles, to "Courting Chic," a deep berry red with gold sparkles, there is a complimentary color for every skintone and style. ("Ceremonial" pictured.)

The Heirloom Mix Mineralize Blush features a pearlized shimmer with buildable coverage. Sweet Sentiment [pictured]  is a rosy pink that I will definitely be using throughout the cooler months to give a my lighter colored skin a cool flush.

The Heirloom Mix Pressed Pigment Minis are great for those who like to have lots of color in a small, easily transported package. These can be applied dry or to damp skin for a more pronounced, dramatic look.  With a creamy texture and radiant shimmer, these pigments are the definition of stunning. ("Victorian Plum" pictured.)

Make sure you head to your local MAC counters, boutiques, or online here to check out the rest of the amazing products in the Objects of Affection, Keepsakes, and Heirloom Mix Collections. Happy shopping!
