MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact: First Impressions

I haven't purchased any MAC makeup all year... I know, I'm just as shocked as you are. I've curbed my spending habits in 2016 like no other to enable me to save for bigger, and greater life changing purchases in the not too distant future (more on this soon). However, as soon as I saw MAC's Christmas Nutcracker Sweet collection, I knew I had to make an exception...




Blush palettes always pull me in, add in a breathtakingly beautiful highlighter to boot and I'm sold. Blusher is one of those make up items that I wear every single day. I don't wear eye shadow too often, but blusher just brings me to life. MAC Nutcracker Sweet Peach Face Compact has honestly stolen my heart this Christmas. For £29 you get a stunning neutral peach toned extra dimension blusher, and a champagne extra dimension skin finish highlighter.

I love the kitsch Nutcracker inspired pink and purple pvc bound compact, plus the gold embroidery on the front is simply stunning. To correlate with the packaging the collection has a very 'pink' theme, which I don't think will be to everyone's taste. The face compact though is available in two different variations, the Sweet Peach version which I have, and a Sweet Copper one which I think would be better suited to skin tones generally darker than mine.



I'm so impressed with the initial swatches of this face compact as multi-pan palettes are notorious for being sub-standard quality compared to their individual counter parts. The blusher has a soft satin finish that gives a gorgeous warm, lit from within glow.

The highlighter is extremely pigmented and swatches almost like a molten metal. It's a pale gold, champagne tone that almost looks rose gold in certain lights, I'll definitely be applying this with a light hand to give a subtle effect this holiday season. I can see myself wearing this palette most days as the blusher and highlighter are neutral enough to work with almost any make up look.

I can't wait to start using this face compact and I'm sure you'll be seeing it featured in a monthly favourites very soon. Have you got you're eye on anything from MAC's Nutcracker Sweet collection?? xoxo
