Why MAC Cosmetics’ Christmas Collections Have Made Our Wishlist

05th Nov 2015

Christmas at M.A.C Cosmetics is the beauty junkie’s equivalent to Santa’s grotto. The colours, the luxuriousness, the packaging, the never-ending wish lists – the only difficulty you’ll have is handing it over when you gift it to someone else; you’ll want to keep it for yourself.


There’ll be three new collections hitting your nearest MAC store. First up, you have Magic Of The Night which is all about colour. It’s glitzy, it’s glam and it’s just what you need for those Christmas parties. Fans of strong smokey eye looks will be pleased here as you’ll get to experiment with mysterious blues, from cobalt to blackened blue and their ‘Oh Darling’ Mineralize Skinfinish compact powder is to die for.

Next in line, their Irresistibly Charming range will make for the most perfect stocking fillers. If it’s a younger age group you’re shopping for, their lip glosses and eye pigment gift sets will suit every complexion.


Finally, their Enchanted Eve collection boasts gorgeous brush kits (MAC brushes still beat all other make-up brushes, in our view), compacts and Viva Glam gift sets. There is literally not a thing in this collection we wouldn’t wear ourselves, and best of all, each compact or gift set comes with hues that complement each other, so you won’t need to be carrying around your weight in make-up.




MAC Brush kit

The price point here begins at €18.50 and just like that; our wish list got even longer.

How to recreate the glossy, lived-in hair at Victoria Beckham AW21

“The hair look really was inspired by the early 90s,” says Victoria Beckham. “I like the idea of quite heavy hair, heavy fringes, that hair that looks like it’s been slept in a little bit, with a little bit of a bend in it.” Here’s how to recreate the lived-in luxe look from her AW21 show.
