MAC haul :from holiday collection and more ..

Happy holidays everyone  and merry christmas .We 've been waiting for M.A.C's holiday collection for so long and when it arrived here ,no one informed us ,I saw it by chance while I was passing by M.A.C..Most of the items were out of stock :(  especially the gift sets ..But any way there were still some gorgeous things.. This post had to be done before 2 weeks but I wanted to take the pics with my new Camera (nikon coolpix s8200)so it is late a little bit
I needed another 239 brush and it was there with a set of 5 brushes for only 25 kd (90 $ ) ..Ofcourse you will notice the big difference in the prices ..Our M.A.C is getting more expensive while prices in M.A.C out side Kuwait is still the same..
The package is beautiful....They come in a very cute clear bag
The brushes :

The brushes included:
167SE: a bronzer brush
168SE: angled contour brush
217 SE: a must have brush for eye shadow applying and blending ,I tried it for blending concealer and worked great with creams .
39SE : for applying shadows and packing color on the eyelid .
212SE:flat definer brush for under the eye or eyeliner .

All these brushes are limited edition and their handles are shorter than the full sized brushes. This brush set comes with a handy  and cute clear handles with silver glitters

This ball of lip glosses is adorable ,I bought 2 balls with pink glosses one for me and one for my sister for her birthday ,I was planning to get her a face kit that contains eyeshadows,blusher ,a lips stick and 2 or 3 brushes I don't remember ,it was out of stock
any way this one is nice gift too..
I love pink ..
I took only one paint pot from the glitter and ice collection  ,it is called Let's skate
Let's skate is a pale pink shade with gold pearl ,it is amazing as base or on the inner corner of the eyes.
I got some more items T
The fast response eye cream which need to be reviewed alone,simply I can't live without it .
There 's also a paint pot from the posh paradise collection called Nibule
I don't know why this color turns brown on my skin after a while .

A closer shot

Hot Gossip is plum medium pink  cream sheen lipstick
That's all for today ..wish you enjoy your holidays ..Thanks for looking

NYX s104 78 Eyeshadow Palette review and swatches

Hello ladies
Nyx is a brand that still new in kuwait ,it's here almost a year ago ..I always see girls in youtube using it and talking about it..that what made me want to try it so much..I picked a big palette of eye shadows because it was  attractive , one single shadow also  and they gave me two lip glosses as a gift !! I gave my self sometime before I review it ,to be fair in my review so here it is

 The packaging is glossy and professional comes with small windows that shows some of what's inside.
You can see the variation in colors ,they also have different finishes ..They are all well  pigmented .The shadow pots are small but you'll not need a lot because of their good pigmentation. Another thing I like about it ,that the most used shadows (the ones in the middle ) come in bigger pots .Let me show you the swatches ..
                        These swatches are without any primer or base 

Starting with the right side :

 The big pots:

After all the swatches I think it is a great deal ,with all these colors that are good quality and easy to blend and the low price !! I'm happy I tried it,I'm planning to buy more product from this brand .
Did you try NYX products ,what do you advise me to buy ??!! plz drop a comment telling me what to buy and I'll be grateful for you ..Thanks for looking ...bye
