MAC Nutcracker Sweet: Sweet Copper Face Compact
Anyway. Packaging - handbag sized and suitably seasonal. Candy-cane-y and gilded rope adorn the outer packaging, and this is echoed again on the embossed pans. They are seriously almost too beautiful to use.
Inside, you'll find a genuinely useable-sized mirror (well done MAC) and two decent pans of really beautiful powders - Pleasure Model, an Extra Dimension Blush, and the iconic Whisper of Gilt, which is an Extra Dimension Skinfinish.
Pleasure Model is a really gorgeous, warm, coppery colour - definitely more for medium plus skintones - and is mega pigmented. Don't fear though, it's beautifully finely milled, and as such is a dream to blend, even if you go a bit too heavy from the outset. I'm usually a MAC Sheertone kinda gal, but this might even enter my MAC blush hall of fame. It has a natural-satin finish, and becomes a little more glowy as you blend. I really love this blush - I think if you are also olive-toned, this will seriously be up your street.
Whisper of Gilt - Well. Need I say anything else. Warm, golden, and unbelieveably shiny - this is a mega-watt highlight. You can, with a very light hand, achieve a sheer, golden glow, but this is very easy to ramp up to metallic levels of shine. It's very smooth - no chunky glitter here - and blends beautifully with other cheek products. I am a huge highlight fan, and this will definitely be getting a lot of use in the coming months.
