MAC Heirloom Mix Collection

MAC Heirloom Mix Collection

I have a few pieces from the MAC Heirloom Mix Collection to share and I have to say that MAC have excelled this time around. Not only is the packaging beautiful but there is so many kits and gift sets as well as a stand alone collection, you will be hard pushed not to find something you'd like to find neatly tied with a bow under the tree this year.

I have yet to settle on what gift set or keep safe kit I want to ask Father Christmas for but I was lucky enough to be sent a few of the stand alone pieces from the MAC Heirloom Mix Collection to try out. First of all can we all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the packaging is. I like that MAC have stuck with their signature black casing but made it slightly festive with little flecks of silver glitter. It is really pretty and not at all tacky - it reminds me a lot of Illamasqua's Creator Nail Polish. A bizarre comparison but a quick Google search and I am sure you will agree!

MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Sentiment £23
Typically speaking I am not one for plum or purple toned blushes but I will make an exception for MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Sentiment. Officially listed as a "Rosy Pink" this is a candy pink shade that leans slightly purple in tone giving a light plum flush to the cheeks. As it is a mineralize formulation it veers on the sheer side but can be applied in layers to achieve a more pigmented finish should you wish. A really pretty shade that should suit the majority of skin tones, it is slightly shimmery but does not settle into enlarged pores or fine lines. Rather it illuminates and can eliminate the need for a separate highlighter.

MAC Pressed Pigment in Regal Affair £17
In a word? Love! I like loose pigments due to their versatility but let's face it they are a messy affair. Enter MAC Pressed Pigments all the uses of the loose variety but with the ease of a pressed powder. Clever! Super pigmented yet can be sheered out to create a soft wash of colour, not to mention they can be used wet to create a liner or face paint (yes really!) and as a highlighter. If you purchase one thing from the MAC Heirloom Collection let it be one of these babies. I have the shade Regal Affair which is a bright silver white and in my opinion works best on pale or cool toned complexions.

MAC Matte Lipstick in Salon Rouge £15.50
On the look out for an old school red lipstick? Rich yet with a slightly blue tone? Well look no further MAC Matte Lipstick in Salon Rouge could just be the ticket. A deep, true red that has a strong blue undertone and is not worlds apart from MAC Ruby Woo. Although MAC claims this is a matte lipstick it isn't nearly as flat or drying as a typical matte lipstick. Having stated that it is only far that I mention it is not completely matte rather it is more akin with MAC's Satin formulation - slightly creamy with a hint of a sheen. On the plus side it is comfortable, fairly universal and long wearing.

MAC Cremesheen Glass in Social Season £13.50
A sparkly pink come purple gloss that is jam packed with pink, blue and silver glitter particles. The overall colour is very sheer but it does look really pretty layered over other lip colours. Although slightly sticky it does help lips appear more full and it is one of the few glitter lip products I have found that looks refined and sophisticated than the vast majority out there.
