Band ten hut!
Yes, I was a band geek, as well as yes, I was also, to noise even more band geekier (?), a squad leader, so I understood all of the commands as well as stuff.
Ugh! I shouldn’t have admitted that in print, however hey, the packaging for this MAC Nutcracker wonderful Smoky Eye Compact Eye shadow X 9 appears like a poor uniform (I spent a majority of my teen years in one).
It’s one of three eye palettes in the Nutcracker wonderful holiday collection, as well as it’s the smoky one. There’s likewise a cool-toned one as well as a warm-toned one.
As usual for a MAC holiday collection, there are great deals of kits as well as sets. MAC goes hawd during the holidays, as well as I’m just type of marching my method (haha, band reference) with all of them.

MAC Nutcracker wonderful Smoky Eye Compact Eye shadow X 9
There are nine powder eyeshadows in this one, as well as they’re all designed to work together in smoky eye looks.
That’s the reason I chosen this up first, since you understand me when it comes to smoky. It’s my thing.
Some of the eyeshadows are mattes as well as some are shimmers. A few of them, I acknowledge from days gone by, like Swiss Chocolate, an old fave from the long-term collection (love), as well as a lighter brown called Kid, which was part of the long-term line at one time however seems to have quietly disappeared.
I understand some people who freaked out about that since youngster was a great color, so I’m happy to see it again.
To be honest, the eyeshadow palettes in MAC’s holiday sets usually make me a grumpy goat since — as well as I’m just gonna state it — they haven’t always performed in addition to the single shadows in the routine MAC line.
Some years, it’s been really, truly obvious, however some years have been much better than others, such as this year. I believe these shadows are a bit much better than usual for a MAC holiday palette.
Are they fantastically great? Well…let’s just state that I’m a bit less grumpy goat than usual.
Wearing youngster (crease), Swiss chocolate (lids) as well as dance in the Dark (lash line)
Like Swiss Chocolate, which I likewise have as an private pan. The one right here blends well — I’d state it’s similar to my other Swiss Chocolate, however I still don’t believe it’s as pigmented. Generally, I feel like all of these might a bit more punch.
This 15-minute look included a great deal of layering as well as blending, as well as it’s still a tad patchy. Plus, I got some fallout.
Thank goodness I did my eyes first…
Another thing, though — the brush? Didn’t dislike it! I usually end up tossing the dual-ended brushes that include some MAC palettes, however this will perform in a pinch.
Overall, is this combination worth it? Well, I wouldn’t go chasing waterfalls for it, however it might be, particularly if you don’t already have these colors.
