MAC Holiday 2012 Gift Collection - Guilty Passions
Guilty Passions contains six new gifts for this holiday season, three that contain Lipglass and three more that contain small Pigments. I can't say that I am all that interested in the Pigments and I don't really believe that any of my friends would love it that much either but the Lipglass sets have the potential to be hits for myself and a bunch of the ladies on my gift list. The MAC website states the following about the collection, "Give into Guilty Passions, from champagne and a dazzling party dress to eyes that shimmer and lips that glisten. M∙A∙C mini kits for eyes and lips packaged in round, chevron-print boxes trimmed with a bow, in shades and finishes too irresistible to resist."
Here is the latest from the gift experts at MAC!

I don't really love any of these sets, both for myself or to give as gifts. I am sure that many people will love at least one or two of these sets but none of them are quite what I plan to give my friends this holiday season. I do like the Lipglass sets and I could see one or two of my friends liking the Cocktail Coral set however the Lavish Rose contains shades that are slightly too odd to give as a gift. I will stay away from the Pigment gift sets since I don't think any of the people on my hsopping list even use the Pigments and people either love or hate this product and tend to use them in all different ways.
A bit disappointing but MAC still has some other great options from the initial release several weeks ago...
