Review: MAC Magic, Mirth and Mischief (Holiday 2009)

''Magic, Mirth and Mischief is what M∙A∙C Holiday '09 is made of! All the sparkle, shine and seduction you need to dazzle and delight, with holiday colour to bring out the mischievous minx in each and every one of you. Have a ball!''-MAC

I loved the MAC Magic, Mirth and Mischief Holiday 2009 collection as I love all things pretty, sparkly and cute! I know that I'm writing this review 1.5 years after the launch of this collection, however, I wanted to include some information on the amazing products that I purchased and love from this collection. 

I was lucky to receive an early Christmas present from a relative and it was a $100 Myer gift card! The first thing that came to mind was the MAC Holiday 2009 Collection! With this gift card, I purchased three kits/sets from the MAC Magic, Mirth and Mischief Collection: House of Mirth (Deep Lip bag kit), Naughty Noir (Eye bag kit) and 5 Sexy Shenanigans (Lustreglass and Lipglass set).

House of Mirth Lip Bag

 Fantastia Lustre Lipstick: Deep pink rose lipstick. The high pigmentation enhances the natural lip colour. I love the fantastic colour payoff of Fantasia as it makes my lips look fuller.

Get Rich Quick Dazzleglass: Red-brown with light gold shimmer. This Dazzleglass is slightly sticky and thick, which lasts a good 4 hours during the day.

Cedar Lip Pencil:  Rose-brown lip pencil which is quite pigmented. I reccomend using a light hand if applying with Fantasia. The colour is buildable and is suitable for red-brown shades of lipstick. The quality is absolutely great as it prevents lipstick from bleeding and defines the lips very well.

Naughty Noir Eye Bag
Shimmertime Pigment: Soft pastel pink with incredibly high amounts of sparkle. Although the pigment appears to be pastel pink in the jar, upon application the finish appears translucent with high amounts of shimmer. Shimmertime, as the name speaks for itself, is great to illuminate other eyeshadows.

Blacktrack Fluidline: Deep black eye liner which has great lasting powder and is smudge-proof. I've been using Blacktrack almost everyday after I purchased this and there's still plenty of product left till this day! I use Blacktrack as an eye liner and to create a cat flick.

209SE Eye Liner Brush: This eye liner brush provides presicion for eye liner application. I only use this brush to apply Blacktrack along my waterline.

Zoomblack Mascara: This black mascara caused disappointment as it just clumped my lashes together. It was difficult to define my lashes as this mascara provided too much volume to my lashes.

5 Sexy Shenanigans

There are five gorgeous lip products in this 5 Sexy Shenanigans set. This set includes
two lustreglasses and three lipglasses (from left to right in the photo above):

Instant Gold Lustreglass: Translucent with penty of yellow and gold shimmer. Despite a sheer and glossy finish, the shimmers in this gloss is abundant!
Angel Wing Lustreglass: Deep raspberry red with red and lavender shimmer. 
This shade is absolutely gorgeous and gives a bold look.

Magnetique Lipglass: Bright magenta with lanvender shimmer. The pigmentation of this gloss is superb! It's almost comparable to that of lipstick! 

Gitane Lipglass: Terracotta brown/organge with subtle silver shimmer.

Pinkular Lipglass: This lipglass is nothing along the lines of pink. Copper with copper shimmer.

The swatches above are of: 
LHS, top to bottom: Angel Wing and Instant Gold.

These lipglass and lustreglass products from the 5 Sexy Shananigans set is all about high quality pigmentation and high shine shimmers! These glosses are definitely described by the theme of Magic, Mirth and Mischief!

  1. I'm a MAC fan but I missed this collection! I would have loved the dazzleglass - trouble is these limited edition collections sell out so quickly!
