New Mac "Ice Parade" gift sets and "Glitter & Ice" collections


 It's been awhile that I haven't updated for my beauty and makeup blog. Last two weeks on Thursday, 27, Mac just came out new collection called "Ice Parade" and "Glitter & Ice" . Last two weeks, I pre-ordered the 'Festive Frost' Face Kit (Nordstrom exclusive) and a "Glitter & Ice" Mineralize eyeshadow in "Hold That Pose". I don't usually buy neutral colors, but this time I saw the blush and the eyeshadows are pretty.  ^_* Also, The snowglobe on the palette is so nice.



Festive Frost' Face Kit (Nordstrom exclusive) and a "Glitter & Ice" 
Mineralize eyeshadow in "Hold That Pose"


($59.50) Snowglobe bag includes a lipstick, a lipglass, three brushes, 
and a compact containing four shadows and a blush


266 angled eyeliner brush, 275 angled eyeshadow brush, and129 blush brush. These brushes are travel size and of course the quality isn't good as the full size brushes


Four eyeshadows from left to right and top to bottom:
Once Upon a Time (Veluxe Pearl), Below Zero (Veluxe Pearl)
 Expensive Pink, and Embark (Matte). 
The blush: Buff Matte


My hand without lotion on. Swatch From left to right.
Once Upon a Time (Veluxe Pearl)- metallic rose beige champagne  
Below Zero (Veluxe Pearl)- shimmery reddish brown 
Expensive Pink (Veluxe Pearl)- frosty coral pink with gold shimmer Embark (Matte)- dark chocolate brown matte
Bottom: The blush in Buff (Matte)-soft matte nude peach


With lotion on and different lighting. Most of colors that I like are "Once upon a time"(good for highlight) and "Expensive Pink" (Smooth, pigmented, duo-chrome). 
My favorite in the palette is the matte blush because it's soft nude peach and good to wear it everyday. The texture of the blush is soft and smooth.
