As you might have seen last week I posted a little haul of things I had bought from Mac. Three of these things were from the newly released Magic of the Night collection that has been released for the holiday season this year. I’m not going to lie, I am already feeling exceptionally Christmassy so I had to get my hands on some of their pieces.
All the items in this collection are limited edition and come in this special metallic packaging so unfortunately they are more expensive than MAC’s permanent items.
MAC Matte Lipstick in Evening Rendezvous (Limited Edition) – This is the only limited edition lipstick shade in the Magic of the Night collection, the others are all permanent shades just re-promoted in the metallic purple packaging. The MAC Mattes are one of my favourite formulas as they are very long wearing. They do leave your lips feeling a little dry so bear that in mind and use a lip balm if you have dry lips like me. The colour is a nice warm, dusty purple with a red undertone. It’s very pretty and I personally find the red undertones make it more flattering than blue toned purples that can make me look a little dead because I am so pale. Like all MAC lipsticks it has a vanilla scent that I personally really like because I am a massive fan of anything vanilla flavoured or scented. Unfortunately the lipstick doesn’t taste like vanilla, which might actually be a good thing because otherwise I would end up constantly licking it off my lips.
MAC Colourdrenched Pigment in Tonight’s The Night & Ascent of Glamour (Both Limited Edition) – These eyeshadows are basically pressed pigments that are, as far as I am aware, new to the Magic of the Night collection. There are 5 colours for this collection that are all limited edition and come in the metallic teal packaging. I decided to go for these two as I am a sucker for anything purple or teal. The eyeshadows are beautifully jewel toned and have fine glitter particles. I wouldn’t consider these to be everyday shades, or even that Christmassy, but they are beautiful. They do have some fall out and they apply better with your finger than an eyeshadow brush but I enjoy staring at them as much as wearing them. I might have been a magpie in a previous life.
Unfortunately I do think most pieces in this collection have now sold out on MAC’s website but if you can still find them on other websites like Debenhams, or in stores, then I would grab the pieces you’re into quickly as they are some very unique pieces and without a doubt they wont be around for long.
