M.A.C. has wrapped their holiday collection in tartan plaid this season. The packaging did nothing for me personally, but I know a few of you will embrace your inner Charlotte York and pick up a few goodies from this collection. There are a ton of repromotes which is great if you missed them the first time around (or happen to really love a given shade), and there are a lot of permanent & PRO items that have been repackaged for the holiday collection. As always, be sure to check your personal stash before handing over cash! Regardless of your feelings on the packaging, the value of the sets and palettes can be exceptional provided A) you LOVE all the shades in the palette and B) don’t already own one (or more) of the products in the set/palette. I usually find the pigment and brush sets to have the best value in M.A.C.’s holiday collections, but in this massive collection there is temptation every step of the way! Check it out below:
