MAC Glitter and Ice Holiday 2011 Collection Review + Swatches - Pt. 1! :D

Here's a quick post on all swatches for the Glitter and Ice collection because I have one assignment that is almost due and I have NO CLUE about it! T_T Check back again in a few days time yeah for the review! :D

This is the colour collection of MAC's annual Holiday collection. This year's collection features pure white packaging corresponding to its "Glitter and Ice" figure skating theme. Though I much prefer this year's packaging than last year's, I secretly hoped that the compacts are shimmery though (like the Moon Bathe ones), but oh well, can't get everything you wished for can you! :D

Ok without further ado, lets go onto the stuff! :D

Mineralize Eye Shadows (US$21 / RM85):

Sadly, we only got 2 out of the 6 mineralize eyeshadows, so I apologize for not having swatches for the rest :( :( Like previous MESes, these are smooth and pigmented, albeit a little glittery (probably because they are festive :D).

Fresh Ice - White silver melange
Snow Season - Soft taupe melange

Not swatched:
Hold That Pose! - Pale mauve melange
Frozen Blue - Blue silver melange
Shimmermint - Pale green melange
Winterized - Dirty purple with silver, indigo and pink melange

Paint Pots (US$18.50 / RM74):

The paint pots from this collection are SO PRETTY!! Paint pots tend to be drying on me but I find these really smooth and easy to blend! :D

Let's Skate - Pale pink with pearl
Morning Frost - Shimmering champagne taupe
For Effect - Black with pearl

Technakohl Liner (US$16 / RM68):

I wasn't really feeling them when reading online reviews prior to seeing them in person because many people find them hard to apply. I did not experience that though - all 6 liners are really smooth and easy to use! I believe these cannot be used on the waterline because they are glittery!

Silver Skates - Silver with pearl
Going for Gold - Gold with pearl
Seasonally Spicy - Brown with pearl
Fancy Moves - Violet with pearl
Practice Makes Perfect - Navy with pearl
Smooth Manoeuvre - Black with pearl

Lipsticks (US$15.50 / RM71):

With the exception of the last two, all lipsticks from this collection are quite sheer.

Eloquent Air (Glaze) - Sheer white silver
Double Spin (Cremesheen) - Pale mauve pink
Whirls & Twirls (Glaze) - Sheer pink with gold pearl
Soft Sable (Frost) - Cool frosted taupe
Such Flare (Matte) - True red
What Joy! (Satin) - Deep berry

Dazzleglasses (US$19.50 / RM84):

Yums, my favourite lipglosses ever! :D As I mentioned before somewhere, Dazzleglasses are not meant to be pigmented and offer little to no coverage. They are meant to add shimmer and bling to your lips, and they look stunning layered over lipstick! :D

Pleasure Principle - Clear white violet, teal and white pearl. This has been on my wishlist since I missed it when it first launched! Now it's mineeee baybeh! :D
She-zam - Sheer silver with silver and red pearl. A repromoted from two Christmases ago. Read my review here.
Glitter and Ice - Light nude with white and gold pearl
Dressed to Dazzle - Pale dirty pink with red and gold pearl
Love Alert - Raspberry red with red pearl. A repromote from the permanent line, but the one from this collection seemed a little more pigmented. Read my review here.
Spanking Rich - Raspberry pink with red and gold pearl. A repromote from the original Dazzleglass collection.

Beauty Powders (US$24 / RM98):

I'm a huge fan of Beauty Powders! They're so finely milled and look so natural on the skin! :D The ones in this collection are GORGEOUS, especially How Beautiful! :D

Snowglobe - Frosted pinky beige
How Beautiful! - Pale shimmering taupe

Nail Lacquers (US$16 / RM45):

Two coats each.

The nail polishes from this collection are just so-so, though I find Unconditionally Fabulous a fun shade to have (though I'm pretty sure that there are tons other cheaper alternatives available out there)!

Festive Finery - Dirty midtone greyed violet
Get Noticed! - True bright red
Unconditionally Fabulous - Super sparkle white

Thats all for now! Didcha get anything from this collection? :D Stay tuned for the kits, I promise I'll post as fast as I can! :D Have a wonderful (long) weekend, everyone! :D
