MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection

Hiya bellas,

I know it’s been a bit quiet on the blog front and social media recently but there’s a good reason for it. I’ve been working very hard on a project recently and it’s something I have envisioned for a very long time, like 8 months to be precise. I’ve finally found someone who is translating it into a reality and I cannot wait to show you what it is in the next couple of weeks. That’s all the info I’m giving you for now because there is literally only 5 people that know what this secret project is, myself included. The reason I’m telling you this is because I haven’t been spending any money on makeup lately since my money is invested elsewhere. It’s so hard not being able to hop online and add the latest amazing launches and collections to cart every chance I get. So I thought for today, why not share my wishlist on the new MAC Nutcracker Sweets collection that recently hit our shores. If you’re interested to know what amazing-ness there is, keep on scrolling…

Not sure if I missed anything but this is the largest holiday collection from MAC I’ve seen to date. All products are available from the MAC website here or if you’re out of South Africa (*) from the MAC US site here.

RANT – I dislike the fact that even though the US prices differ by $4, the markup on the SA prices are R200 and up. Also the sets are priced differently based on the colours even though you are getting the same amount of product and the US prices are the same. As beautiful as this collection is and as much as I’d like to own some, this collection and it’s pricing is just for money making.

  • Nisa I can’t wait to see what you’ve got up your sleeve!!! You’re killing me…..lol. #Curious

    This collection is lovely, but ya very pricey. I could buy my first urban decay palette for the price of these palettes. HE he. The struggle is real. I don’t buy the higher end stuff like you do, but also tight with finances to even splurge on Essence at this point. lol.

    • Hahaha soon hun.

      Ohh and with all the new Essence and Catrice launches it’s killing me as well.
