MAC | Keepsakes Set


I was one lucky girl this Christmas. Me and Rachel always buy each other Christmas and birthday presents. It's like our sisterly tradition but we always end up showing each other before we're meant to! This year was no different and I couldn't believe it when I opened my Christmas present from Rachel! This year's MAC Keepsakes Christmas set! I know, I was in shock too!
I've only ever owned a couple of MAC lipsticks before and absolutely loved them like everyone else. I've really wanted to try out other products and this was the most perfect present! I almost cried haha. Inside this beautiful glittery black bag (can you believe how glamourous and pretty this packaging is?) was a brown eyeliner, an two set eyeshadow palette and a mascara! They are all full sized and I could barely contain my excitement. Is there really anything better than putting expensive make up on? It always makes me feel so much better and it's the ultimate treat.

I've included a photograph of me wearing all the mentioned products! Wow, these are the best eye make up products EVER. The mascara. It's unbelievable! Look how long it makes me lashes while keeping them natural looking. I love the eye shadows too. They are so creamy and soft and glide on my eye lids seamlessly. I love the shades. One is a shimmery white but looks really understated and highlights perfectly. The other is like a brown but really compliments the white. It doesn't look harsh against the lighter shade and is a dream to wear. In my opinion, brown eyeshadow is so much more wearable than black so this was the perfect liner for me. It lives up to all expectations too. It finshes off my look perfectly and I can't thank my beautiful sis Rach enough for this truely gorgeous gift!

What do you think of MAC makeup? Do you think it's worth the price tag?
