Mac Glitter and Ice: Lip Bag: Sultry

Hi lovelies,

So if you saw my birthday haul you will have seen that one of my presents was a lip set from Mac's latest collection: glitter and ice.

I've been using this since Monday (yes I know we're only on Thursday but I love it already) and it's quickly becoming my favourite everyday lippie and gloss combo.

So this is what you get in the collection, a cute lil bag and the silver circle acts as a small pouch to put maybe a mirror in, the set comes with a lipstick, gloss and liner.

Onto the lipstick:

This Cremesheen lipstick is in the colour 'I Love Winter' which is a gorgeous neutral pink, it's creamy texture means it applies really easily and I find I don't need many coats for colour.

I find this lasts a good few hours even with drinking and eating which is great and you aren't constantly re-applying during the day.

The lipgloss comes in the colour 'Deelight' which again in a natural pink which I love on top of the lipstick. This is a colour I could see myself wearing separately, and has a lovely gloss shine to it.

A great gloss if you want to just simply add shine as the colour is natural, and something I would consider repurchasing.

Lastly is the lip liner in the colour 'Boldly Bare' this is a neutral pinky/brown which is a lovely colour but something I wouldn't personally use a lot of because I'm not a liner girl. I do however use it with the lipstick as I find together they look quite nice.

Here are swatches of all three:

As a whole package I love this set I find the colours are very wearable and something I think every girl needs in her makeup bag.

The set is priced at £31 so it works out cheaper including the small bag which is always a bonus. Especially if you try and work out what you'd be paying if purchased separately.

The small bag isn't brilliant, but I find if you just want to chuck in some basics as in lippie, eye liner, mascara it will fit, but it's not gonna hold a lot.

I find this set perfect for the winter and something I'd repurchase when I run out (if they still have it). The wear on this is great, I put it on at the beginning of my uni day (around 9ish) and it's still on by the time I get home which is mid afternoon, and this is after numerous drinks and food.

Probably one of my favourite mac ranges to be released.

Have you lovelies got anything yet from the new range?
