So I finally picked up what I decided were the must-haves of the new MAC Glitter & Ice Collection last night. The Paint Pot in Morning Frost and the Glitter Polish Unconditionally Fabulous.
The polish was one I knew I’d regret if I didn’t buy it and I wasn’t wrong. It’s beautiful and would absolutely “Christmas Up” anything you applied it over the top of. The glitter is dense enough you could build an opaque glitter polish with 2 or 3 coats and it’s nice and evenly distributed for it to work well as a topcoat. For those wondering the polish I have on underneath is Soft Grey from Beauty UK (look out for NOTD post soon). I thought it would look nice and frosty and it really does, very festive!
The paint pot is a very neutral shimmery shade.. on my hand it looked perfect and I must mention it is super long wearing. Once it was on there was no budging it and on my eyes it didn’t seem to crease. I am disappointed though, it’s a lot lighter on my lids than I anticipated. I thought it would give more impact but it’s kind of blah. I didn’t buy “let’s skate” because it seemed really similar to “Chilled on Ice” which I purchased from the Champale collection. I do love my neutral tones but this is nothing special. Not many paint pots do it for me but i was so hoping this one would. Shame.
I picked up a foundation and concealer while I was there but I will blog about those separately.
There’s nothing else I’m DYING for from the Glitter & Ice collection. I loved the Snowglobe beauty powder, mainly because of the name but when I swatched it in store it really was beautiful and I’d also have loved to get a brush set but this close to baby and Christmas I’m trying to reign in the spending a touch. I figured I was entitled to a little pre-birth treat though 😉
