Are you ready to have some fun with your up-coming holiday season's makeup looks? Well, you can get ready for an enchanted evening that is filled with non-stop glitz and glam, depends on your mood for the night or evening out as this season. This holiday season, M.A.C Cosmetics with its Magic of The Night collections are already here to offer you some cool shades and palettes, with eyes in deep smokey hues and lips that are bold enough to set you on fire. There are so many beautifully packaged sets to choose from and all of them look equally enticing. We shall do a quick share with you some of the products we have from the collection, all thanks to M.A.C Malaysia.
Apparently, the highlights of the Magic of The Night collection, according to bloggers local and abroad are actually the In Extra Dimension Skinfinish (the Oh Darling highlighter and Shaft of Gold bronzer, here for more). They did look super gorgeous that night when we attended the launch of this collection at KLCC previously. They had such rave reviews after the launch on the internet and youtube. The other ones that were equally eye-catching to the media and bloggers are the Colourdrenched Pigments (here) for the eyes, in pearlized, creamy hues, which comes in 5 shades, shown here. The holiday season collection from M.A.C is one that is along the colour palette of teal, blue, deep purple and all the jewel tones with cool shades.
We had a chance to grab a quick chat with Haritha Shan, the M.A.C Senior Artist of Malaysia. According to her, the inspiration behind the whole collection is the colour blue. Colour evokes a certain mood or emotion, it also transcends and cuts across varied art forms like music (Jazz for the collection), dance and even makeup. Each year, M.A.C tries to bring forward the fun and glamorous part of putting on makeup for that special occasion of the year. So expect glitters, creamy shades, shimmer hues, sparkles and so much more. Her personal favourite is the new Colourdrenched eyeshadows as using them dry, they give a high shine effect, but once used wet, they become more pigmented and completely intensity your eye colour. Best brush to use with these would be the 239, the tapered brush, she added.
Our set (2 eyeshadows, 1 eyeliner, 1 mascara and 1 makeup brush) comes in a zip black pouch which can be used as a makeup bag. Love that shining colourful metallic stripes on it. The M.A.C Extended Play Lash blue tube mascara in black has quite a tiny wand, which makes it super easy to apply onto the lashes, which we like a lot. The next favourite in the combo is the brown M.A.C Fluidline eyeliner (in the shade of DipDown). We love the smooth consistency of this gel eyeliner and it glides on super easily, especially with the accompanying dual-ended brush. The eyeliner tip end of the brush can create a really sharp eyeliner look. Really loving this. The other end of the brush is for applying eyeshadows.
The two eyeshadows are Brule, an off-white shade and Sable, a brownish plum a little frosty kind of finishing. Even though it says satin for Brule, but it feels and look powdery matte to us. Of course, we love the Sable one a little more here. There are other colour combinations to choose from, in the Enchanted Eve: Lip and Eye Bag (MYR305.50) range.
It does look like this M.A.C Magic of The Night holiday collection is selling fast since its launch. So, if you are keen, better head over to your nearest M.A.C store the soonest!

Till our next holiday series sharing, have a luminously beautiful and happy new week ahead, lovelies *_^
