MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Gloss Set (+ Swatches)

I haven't been this interested in MAC products in a long time but this collection is seriously cute and I have already got my eyes on a few more sets! This is the Nutcracker Sweet collection for Christmas this year which includes a bunch of mini sets (all great value for money) as well as individual products and beautiful face compacts.

This is the Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Gloss Set, there is also Nude and Pink versions available if red isn't for you. When I placed my MAC order for the Sweet Copper Compact, this red set just caught my eye as I don't have any glosses like these or typically red shades. I love lip gloss but I never go through a whole one, apart from the Dior Lip Maximizer, so I thought I would give four glosses from MAC a try at £26 and free delivery. You really can't go wrong with these mini sets, I have my eyes on one of the pigment mini sets as well!

I am really impressed with the packaging of this kit, it comes in an acrylic like draw with a cute fabric ball on the front of the draw to be able to open it. It has a gorgeous, pink, gold and black nutcracker design and if you pop the insert out from inside the draw you can easily store even more lipglosses inside, I would say you could probably fit around eight of these glosses inside. Inside the draw you receive four lip glosses, three Cremesheen Glasses and one Dazzleglass. The lipglosses themselves even have the cute design on the caps and you get 2.9g of product in each gloss, which is more than enough for me! 

The four shades in this set aren't your typical 'red' shades, you have a couple of pinks, a gorgeous sparkly shade as well as a stunning medium red with shimmer. The Dazzleglass included is Phiff! which is a translucent beige with tonnes of gold and silver sparkles. The three Cremesheen Glasses included are Galaxy Rose, a raspberry pink with cool undertones, Gumdrop which is a bright red/pink with a ruby red pearl. Finally, we have Courting Chic which is a stunning almost burgundy shade which a tonne of copper and gold shimmer. 

All four of the lipglosses have great pigmentation and the cremesheens are very pigmented on the lips and can be built up to a higher intensity. I personally found all of the glosses to be comfortable on the lips, especially the Cremesheens. The Dazzleglass on the lips is much stickier than the others in the set but I didn't find it uncomfortable or even mind the stickiness. In terms of wear time for glosses they hold up well for a good few hours and even through eating and drinking. My favourite shade at the moment has to be Courting Chic which was the one shade that I thought I wasn't even going to like, it will be a perfect Christmas Day colour and I am obsessed with the glittery look on the lips! If you want to try the MAC lip glosses this is a brilliant way to do so and at a great price point.
