MAC Holidays ...Starring You - and 5pm!

3 min read

The ‘Holiday’ collection from MAC is a superstar – Starring You! MAC plays with a classic symbol of the celebratory season, taking the twinkling star in all-new directions – on packaging, in a glittering lineup of products and kits, and in dazzling new looks.

And I love it. Festive makeup is so much fun – and if you aren’t confident at doing your own, there are loads of makeup artists at 5pm just waiting to do it for you!

But first, MAC. Look at these Lipsticks!  The all-new glitter-coated Kiss Of Stars Lipstick serves subtle glam or full-on glitz with creamy, eye-catching shimmer in six shades.There’s nudes, pinks, golds, purples, and reds. I want them all! The shades are Asterisk, Destined For Stardom, Kiss of Stars, Starstruck, Walk Of Flame, and Goldstar!


The Lipglass comes in similar, beautiful shimmery, sparkly shades, five of them to choose from. I absolutely love the bright purple Starf*cker!

Newly returned Spellbinder Shadow is another must-have, with magnetically charged ionised pigments that cling to eyelids. Four deep velvety shades provide intense, dimensional colour payoff for pro-worthy application. This formula is fantastic, and the packaging on this is soooo cute. The shades are Stars Align, Wishful Thinking, Swing On A Star, Stairs To The Stars.

There’s lovely Opalescent Powder in Shooting Star and Rising Star, as well as one Powerpoint Eye Pencil and one Lash set.

The new MAC Starring You collection is available now at counters, and, prices from £12.50.
