Holiday Gift Ideas: M•A•C Cosmetics

Truth be told, time is running out and you need to get a gift with impact. Well, look no further than this piece right here because all you have to do is run over to M•A•C Cosmetics to get a gorgeous gift or stocking stuffer with incredible panache.

One of my favorite brands pretty much ever, they’ve outdone themselves with these gorgeous, glamorous holiday items. I won’t drone on about how amazing the formulations are (the makeup is legendary and so good) or how these will essentially cause people to faint upon opening them (because they will.)

Let’s just get to the good stuff. Here’s what I’d recommend giving this season from the makeup brand that just does it better and better every…single…time:

Most of us need a good neutral kit to keep with us for an everyday eye. This gorgeous eye compact pretty much delivers every color you need to get a great daily dose of glamour eyes with a couple of shades that make it evening friendly. Also, can we talk about the stink eye you’ll get when jealous people see you whip THIS out when touching up your makeup? DELISH.

The Viva Glam initiative is one that is near and dear to my heart, so these gifts help the M•A•C Aids Fund change lives every year. This holiday bag of goodness helps further the cause and is a great way to give and give back.

Another initiative from the brand, these Kids Helping Kids cards are created by children who are afflicted with HIV/AIDS and all proceeds come right back to helping them and other children just like them through the M•A•C AIDS Fund. Seriously, buy them.

I mean, who isn’t going to love something with the name Guilty Passions in it? These retro glam little collections of pigments and lip glosses are inspired by guilty pleasures, like champagne and dazzling party dresses. Grab a few, give a few, and then join me for some pretty little indulgence, won’t you?

There’s something so glamorous and decadent about getting ready for a fancy party, which is one of the reasons M•A•C created a collection that celebrates those glamorous moments, that lovely haze of the Glamour Daze. Treat yourself, and then take a LONG time getting ready, will you? Perfection takes time.
