MAC released its 2017 snowball holiday collection on to Irish shelves on Wednesday 23rd of October. The new winter themed collection draws inspiration from Chanel in the bold use of metallic this season.

“Find your rhythm and light up the night in cool frost and high-chrome shine. We’ve got all the bling you’ll ever need to make everyone go star-struck. Be the sleighbell of the ball, dancing until morning, feeling alive, revelling in the new generation. See you on the dance floor”. – MAC

The clash of harsh metallics with pretty pastel pinks in the photo campaign for the collection are executed perfectly and help to serve as an indication as to what to expect from the collection.

The products include snowflake-embossed eye-shadow singles in shimmering shades, a 12 piece mini lipstick collection, silver & gold make up brush sets, perfume & an enchanting high pigment highlighter (also snowflake embossed for added Christmas glee!)

The packaging gets a 10 , too. Gilded gold lipstick bullets, festive rose gold sequin makeup bags, and little poofball-adorned pouches. Metallic silver & gold bedazzlement with soft pastel undertones of millennial pink, continues to be the poignant colour scheme in this collection that won’t even require wrapping.
