Magic, Mirth, and Mischief for MAC's Holiday 2009 Collection

Two months left til December with the chilly weather as a giveaway. As I chanced upon the MAC website, I saw that their Holiday collection's now up, featuring palettes, kits, and brush sets for the MAC fan who wants to look absolutely dazzling for the Holiday. Okay, they wouldn't hurt too as gifts. :)

Check out the Mineralize kit here, for those who fell in love with the MAC Mineralize line:

A silverized square-shaped box that contains mineralize eyeshadow, and two Mineralize Blushes and the bonus of a 181SE Mini Buffer Brush for proper application. The box shown here is the Fun In The Sun Mineralize Kit, which warms the skin to give it a warm glow in the chilly nights. In here, I'm eyeing on the Shimpagne blush, which makes an excellent highlighter on the tops of the cheeks, temples, and browbone. I actually missed this after not seeing this in counter for a while. The other kit, Pinkzapoppin!, is more on the pink and rosy side and would be forgiving for those with fair skin. The mineralize blush really looks good on brides, and since December is wedding season here in Manila, you could give this as a special gift to your makeup-loving bride-to-be friend.

Of course what makes us go gaga are brush sets. While last year's collection made my eyes pop with the reds, this collection goes darker with grayish tones

Do I see an SE version of the tapered blending brush?

Lip bags and eye bags are again a staple in collection pieces. I'm personally eyeing on the Naughty Noir Eye Bag, which has Blacktrack fluidline, Shimmertime Pigment, and Zoomblack mascara with a bonus of a 209SE liner brush to apply the fluidline properly. What I like? Full-sized pigments and Blacktrack liner! :D Oh, did I mention the lovely silvery vinyl bag?

Ooooh and check this out: Blush Sets. WE HAVE BLUSH SETS NOW! Although these sets do not come with a brush, I recommend applying these products with the 129 blush brush and use the 188 brush as a highlighter.

The polka dot details actually designate the colors in the palette
This kit is the Hocus Focus colorful face kit which contains Sunsparkled Pearl, Pretty Baby (limited edition shades), and the staple Peachykeen, which is one of my favorite MAC blushes. I sure can't wait for these to hit MAC counters and pretty sure a whole lot would be buying these babies.
