Mac Nutcracker Sweet Holiday 2016 Collection is here!

Written by: Jessica Penfold | Sub-editor: Alma Fabiani

Every year before Christmas, MAC cosmetics bring out their annual holiday collection and it’s just launched in stores. It all looks oh so sweet and good enough to eat! This year it’s Nutcracker Sweet and with its fuchsia pink and purple packaging it’s hard to miss. Here’s what’s in store…


The collection features more than 40 pieces and has collectable items every makeup lover will want to get their hands on. That is a lot of makeup. The holiday collections always become a sellout so if you want something it’s best to snap it up quick. Deciding on what you want may be quite hard as there is everything available from blushes, highlighters, brush sets, lipsticks and the cutest sets of mini products you will ever see.

As described on the MAC website, “Leap into a magical land that’s a bit nutty, a little naughty, bursting with whimsy. Lose yourself in an eccentric kingdom of oversized treats and rosy-cheeked nutcrackers. Twist, turn and tumble deeper into the Land of Dolls. Our story has only begun…”

The collection oozes Christmas doll vibes and we’re really excited about this one. You wouldn’t typically expect to wear these shades of pinks/purples around Christmas but MAC is suggesting that makeup is all about breaking the boundaries and this collection is doing just that. These are all made for perfect stocking fillers seeing as Christmas is just around the corner (eek!). The names of the products are just as sweet, some examples being Dream Scene, Cake and Biscuits to Tutu and Nutcracker Rouge.

There’s almost too much to choose from and if you’re a makeup junkie then you’ll have trouble choosing just one thing or two, to go for. Christmas is all about parties and special occasions so these would be perfect to experiment with and have your makeup do the talking. The collection is only available until 8th December so if you want something, you better be quick.
