MAC Curiositease

I love the new MAC holiday items, it's my favorite MAC collection of the year and the best holiday one for awhile, to me. I have gotten a look at the new Curiositease gift sets, out Nov. 8th.

These come in cute hardboard containers with the "royal " seal on them. When you lift the top off , you get whatever set you choose sitting in a base. I know every year the pigment sets go fast and these are really cute. There is a warm and cool set. All the gift sets are fun as is the whole collection.

I was expecting the palettes to be lightweight, but they have a heft to them. The metal is heavy. I adore the gold ones, as I think they look most vintage but the silver would be vintage of an even older era than the gold, so it's all in which shades you like.

The Finery sets, in the small bags, all have white lipstick/gloss cases with the gold or silver embossing look, and I love those white cases.

Basically you can't go wrong with any of these as gifts. The packaging boxes are all a hard card stock type with the gold or silver logo motif. It's put on a bow and go.

If the people who shopped for me didn't wait until December 24th, I'd ask for one of these for Christmas. But alas, I'll probably have to buy one for myself. I love Lipglass!

(Neal doesn't wait that long - he's usually been shopping by now.)
