Quick MAC Glitter and Ice Holiday Collection Swatches!

I've just started to play around with my goodies from the MAC Glitter and Ice collection. I have a few quick swatches for you today and I'll definitely post an eye look later in the week. In the first picture, you can see a very light shimmer/color on top. That's MAC How Beautiful beauty powder. It is gorgeous!! It's really subtle, but adds a nice peachy glow to your cheeks, or any other area of your face. Underneath that is MAC Dressed to Dazzle dazzleglass, a sparkling nude rose lip gloss.

Above is Dressed to Dazzle on it's own. It imparts just a hint of color to lips, but a lot of shine. It would look  amazing over a number of lipsticks, or just by itself!

On the left is MAC Fresh Ice Mineralize Eye Shadow and on the right is MAC Snow Season Mineralize Eye Shadow. I swatched these damp. Using these shadows damp really increases their pigmentation and shine.

On top is Snow Season, on the bottom is Fresh Ice. I really like all of the items I got from Glitter and Ice. They're really subtle and neutral, but super flattering. I don't own a lot of neutral make-up. I tend to go for super bright colors and glittery items. These are a nice departure and create a soft glow. I'll try to post a full face picture of myself wearing How Beautiful beauty powder so you can see how amazing it looks on, but sometimes I look like an alien in self-taken pictures LOL.

I also bought the glitter nail polish, Unconditionally Fabulous, so that will be getting it's own post very soon!

Dressed to Dazzle looks really pretty! I picked up Spanking Rich Dazzleglass from this collection and love it. That beauty powder looks great too!

Jenn A.- the beauty powder is unbelievable! I don't usually get the beauty powders, but this one makes my skin look so pretty! I'm tempted to get the second bp too now! Spanking Rich looked really pretty too!
