I haven’t added to my make-up collection in a while, and I was so excited when I came upon M·A·C’s ‘Festive Frost’ Face Kit (Nordstrom Exclusive). It is a complete winter look including a snow globe-inspired makeup case and three essential brushes. I ripped this set open as soon as I got it! It truly makes for a wonderful addition to my makeup collection.
To start, the compact has an adorable working snow globe bubble on top which is so festive. It opens to a set of four shadows that slide over, revealing a blush. The ‘Buff’ blush looked dark at first, but even on my fair skin it looks wonderful. It gives a bit of a ‘fresh-from-the-cold’ winter glow and pairs nicely with the shadows. The shadows are neutral, but with shimmer, and they create a great natural look for day that you can kick up with the darker shadows for night. I use the shadows as liner too, and this works great to create a smoky eye look. I think this palette is the perfect set to travel with since it’s a whole look in one. The clear makeup case comfortably fits in a purse and houses the three brushes, palette, lipstick and gloss with room for some of your other essentials. Lastly, I have to rave about the neutral beige-tone lipstick. I was very unsure how this color would look on me. After applying, I realize that this lipstick is perfect to complete this winter look. The color is a true nude lip that you can use whenever you do your eyes a bit heavy. For winter, it gives your lips that natural finish and you can pair the gloss on top to add shine and richer color.
This set would make a fabulous holiday gift (but it’s also the perfect set to treat yourself to)! Think of all the holiday parties you have to start planning for. The M.A.C Festive Frost Face Kit will be the icing on the cake for all your holiday looks.
