MAC Holiday 2011 - Dazzlespheres

Throughout the holiday season, MAC will continue to release new collection every few weeks.  Come of the collections (like the one that we will look today) are based on gifting and others are based more on individual shades to create a great holiday party look.  Dazzlespheres is the collection that was released this week and it contains a series of ornaments that house small products from the company.  As of right now, I have been looking for small gifts for some of my coworkers and I am hoping that a few of these might fit the bill!

From the MAC website, "Holiday giving goes outrageously festive with Dazzlesphere!  Mini kits for lips, eyes, and nails are packed in clear, couture-future ornaments!  Opulent and sure to satisfy all the nice (and naughty) girls and boys on your list!"  It looks like some of the ornaments contain Pigments, some contain lip products, and one contain small nail lacquers.  I am most excited for the lip gloss ornaments, I love MAC Lipglasses and small lip glosses in general so I considering picking up one of these ornaments for myself along with all the gifts that I need to order!

Here is the new gift collection from MAC!

I must have two of the ornaments for myself - forget gifts at the moment!  I love the Pink x 4 and the Nail Lacquer Ornaments.  I would buy any of those shades in full sizes and therefore that make both of these sets completely worth the purchase, in fact I could see myself buying the lip shades in the full sizes and then keeping the ones in the ornament just for my bag.  I love the Nail Lacquer in Dark Angel, I might order a full size backup of this one too.

Now as for gifts for everyone else, I might skip over most of this collection.  I'm not a fan of the pigments since they aren't the most giftable item.  I would only buy Pigments for someone that really works with makeup and would know the best ways to use the Pigments.  Which is only about one or two people on my list, the lip gloss and nail lacquer sets are a much better girl option.
