MAC Nutcracker Sweet: Copper Face Compact and Nude Lip Bag Review And Swatches

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

MAC came out with a MASSIVE Nutcracker Sweet Collection for the holidays. It contained LOTS of sets!!! Some are still available. There were brushes, lip products, face products and so much more in a series of colors. I only purchased two sets out of the collection, that I thought would work for me

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact (SOLD OUT, except on eBay) - Sweet


The Sweet Copper Face Compact was the MOST POPULAR item out of the entire collection and is now sold out. It's currently selling on eBay from $37-$150. It contains Whisper of Guilt & Pleasure Model. Whisper of Guilt came out several years ago (I believe 2012) and was really popular. I don't remember the Whisper of Guilt craze, but glad it made a reappearance so I could try it. Both of these are Skinfinishes! So you can use them all over your face. Both give your face a very pretty glow. Awesome for the holidays. I concentrated on the cheek & nose area of my face. I love the packaging for this product. MAC gives you a great mirror and it has a Nutrcracker soldier theme.



MAC Nutcracker Sweet NUDE Lip Kit Bag (still available at Macys here) - Sweet


You guys know I love my NUDE colors. Of course, nudes with a little kick to them... pinky browns. Well, this little kit comes with a cute Nutcracker soldier makeup bag that zips and three lip products. You have Magic Spell (Creme Sheen Lipstick), In Control (Pro Longwear Lip Pencil) and Tuned In (Vamplify Liquid Lipstick). These darker nudes are great for Winter. I would almost put these in the mauve family. Both have a wonderful shine to them and feel really good to the lips. I have a feeling this nude will look different on everybody. If you look at it on Temptalia, it looks a lot different on me. Just thought you should know. But it's still great otherwise. Glad I purchased both. Here's the Copper Face Compact on her.

I'm drooling over how pretty these are! That is a stunning face compact and it looks beautiful on you Kim! And those lip colors are definitely my favorite shades to wear! I love the nutcrackers theme for the holiday time! The packaging to the face palette is so cute!

I managed to get my hands on sweet copper and I'm loving it! I love the soft texture of them and the colour pay of is really good. Crazy how people are selling it for $150... I wonder if anyone actually buys it :) Love the look of that nude, it looks good on you :)

Oh I love the Tuned in shade on your lips, beautiful Kim! :)

It's crazy how makeup can sell out so quickly and be resold for so much more - but I guess it's like anything, if there's a high demand people will pay more just to get a piece! :)

Hope you're having a really good start to the week :)

I've heard so much about their collection lately and oh my gosh it really IS gorgeous :) The Sweet Copper face compact was a particularly brilliant choice for you Kim, I'm not at all surprised it's now sold out!

Oooooo....that lip kit looks freaking fab, Kim! You really know how to pull off these kinds of shades. You know, when the collection first came out, I saw it on MAC counters and didn't even realize that the Sweet Copper Face compact was popular! Argh! Should have gotten it when I had the chance.

Those skin finishes look so lovely on you, Kim! When I was younger, I used a lot of different skin finishes from MAC but overall I found their staying power on my skin has declined over the years, so I've moved on from them. I may be inspired to try them again, though!

Ahhh both sets are sooo gorgeous. Every time I go to the mall I see fewer and fewer of these left at the MAC store/ counters. That nude lip kit is seriously tempting me!! A lot of the "nude kits" feature colors that are too light for my liking but this one looks perfect! Thanks for the lip swatches :)

OMG I need these!!

Lorena said...

I think you picked wisely, the shades are gorgeous and I've said it before: I have yet to see a shade you do not wear well.

Miss Val's Creations said...

These shades are absolutely gorgeous. Right up my alley!

The packaging is so fun and festive and it looks like MAC did just as well with the makeup shades this time. Everything you got looks beautiful on you Kim! But I swear there are not many colors that don't looksgood on you anyway ;p

I LOVE the packaging on the compact, it's beautiful! I'm guessing it sold out because of Whispers of Guilt. I don't understand why they would discontinue such a popular product, it really is beautiful! I also love those lip colors, they are indeed perfect for winter and look so good on you, gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having the best start to your week so far

The colors are lovely on you! The nude lip kit is especially versatile and contains great colors.

Gellie Abogado said...

I'd love to try them too! There's a voice inside me that says it isn't available yet in Mac Philippines but it's worth a shot! Will be visiting the Mac store this weekend then! xD

I used to be crazy about MAC products and their holiday sets back in the day. Their packaging is always SO CUTE for holiday sets. I actually looked for the bronzer/highlight duo and it was sold out! I love it the swatches are so pretty! The lip kit looks great too. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on these!

Happy Early Thanksgiving Kim! I love the colours in the compact, no wonder they're sold out. I just realized I have tons of makeup, so I don't think I will buy any makeup for a while. Although, I will go Black Friday shopping this weekend. Haha. Have a great weekend!

I have not bought anything from MAC since ages but I was sooooo tempted by the face compact! It has to be one of the prettiest that I have ever seen.

Everything looks gorgeous on you Kim. I would be to scared to use the compact as I would not want to mess up the beautiful design. This is excellent for a makeup lovers collection ;-)

I love both the blushes and the lippies because they give you a nice glow! Lots of love
