Tutorial :: Shimmermint in Full Effect

As usual, I can get new products without toying around with the colors 🙂 Here’s a look using some of the new MAC Glitter & Ice products… I like how the Full Effect paintpot deepens Shimmermint. I will say that you have to really work with the fallout, but the color is beyond gorgeous.

Haul :: MAC Glitter & Ice Holiday 2011 Collection (Swatches)

This year’s MAC Holiday Collection is called Glitter & Ice and accurately describes the feel of the line. The collection is full of shimmery light colors. Overall, the collection was a slight let down, I would have loved better lipsticks and some new blushes. However the Technakhol pencils and Paintpots were winners for me. I also like the Dazzleglass colors, the neutral colors make for a nice touch of “dazzle” without being overbearing.

I have never been a huge fan of the sets, typically there is one product that I want to pass on, however they make for great deals or gifts.

Since I was invited to the premiere, I was able to get these early but it was so much going on that I rushed and picked up somethings I didn’t want, so look for a part two soon.
