MAC Making Pretty

MAC Making Pretty for holiday 2012 is a really gorgeous looking collection featuring pink and rose gold packaging. SO cute!

It’s a small one including only an iridescent powder (Silver Dusk), three sheer powders (Light/Medium, Medium Plus and Dark Secret), two lipsticks (Runaway Red and 3N) and a face and eye brush set. You do pay for what you get in terms of packaging here – nothing is cheap!

Unfortunately for me neither of the Sheer Mystery Powders are my shade. I would probably be Light/Medium. But they feel very finely milled and soft.

Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder is a loose, soft powder with Mica. It gives off a soft silvery/pink glow. Best packaging ever!

Runaway Red is a bright red satin lipstick. Great red shade.

Availability: Most everything is sold out online already but may still be available in stores.

Pricing: Silver Dusk ($65 for 0.51 oz), Sheer Mystery Powder ($65 for 0.28 oz), Lipstick ($28 for 0.15 oz).

Do you love this packaging? How about what’s inside, worth the price for you or no way?
