Mac Sweet Nutcracker Collection – Nude Mini Lipstick Set

If you haven’t notice before my by Mac Lipstick Haul, Autumn Ready Lips and my blogpost about the Star Trek Range, I am a little bit addicted to lipsticks; especially Mac lipsticks. So when I saw the new Mac Sweet Nutcracker Collection come out, I instantly fell in love.

I love a nude lipstick, and the mini lipstick set is just adorable. Here is my review of the Nude Mini Lipstick Set.

Firstly, the packaging is just beautiful. The mini lipstick sets come in a little plastic box, which has a draw which holds the 4 cute mini lipsticks. The colour of the box is in the theme of the rest of the Sweet Nutcracker collection and the lipsticks also have the same theme.

The shape of the lipsticks are the exact same as the original lipsticks, but they are considerably smaller; but I don’t think they are that much smaller really.  The black base with gold detailing and a hot pink lid is just so sweet.

I really do love the size of these lipsticks. They are a perfect size to carry around in your bag and also because these lipsticks are mini versions of other lipsticks, they are a great way to try out the lip colours without spending £15.50 to realise that the shade doesn’t suit you.

The cost of the set is £26, which makes the cost of a lipstick £6.50 each. As the lipsticks are smaller than the original £15.50 lipsticks, I think the price of the set is reasonably.
