The holiday season is one of the best time to stock up on your favourite holiday sets / limited edition kits that get released just for the shopping season. It’s even better when these releases coincide with shopping events like Black Friday, Boxing Day or any customer appreciation discounts that are usually stackable on these value-priced sets.
One of the MAC holiday sets that really caught my eye is the MAC Firewerk It Lip Kit ($49, available here) – not as good as an offer as The Bay’sMAC Sleigh All Day Lipstick Trio, another holiday exclusive set I got a few weeks back as it’s a pricier set even with the discount but all in the name of renewing/re-qualifying my “Devoted” status.
The MAC Firewerk It Lip Kit comes in two colour themes – “nude/blush” or “berry” themed sets; I chose the nude one as they’re just my favourite shades for everyday but also easier to wear any time of the year. These sets are available at The Bay, Nordstrom, MAC official site, Sephora and similar retailers that carry the MAC brand.
The set includes 3 full-sized products including:
- Lipstick: You’re My Flame – Nude pink (Matte) ($24, available here)
- Lipglass: Avalanche of Kisses – Roseypink with pearl ($22, available here)
- Lip Pnecil: Dervish – Pinky-mauve ($23, available here)
MAC’s lip formula are some of the best – their lipstick and liquid lipstick tend to be some of the most long-lasting, and comfortable formula with colours for every skintone. There’s a good number of value sets that get released many times during the year including collaborations with local creatives / influencers like the MAC X @OOPS_OHEMMA Influencer Kitand the MAC x @ALLANARAMAA Influencer Kit to get your hands on a few different formula’s and format so you can better judge the quality.
I go through MAC lip products on a regular basis which is one of the reasons I picked this up. As you might also recall, you can return 6 empty MAC plastic packaging in exchange as part of their recycling program “Back to MAC” for a free full-sized lipstick / eyeshadow / lipglass (I believe product selection varies by membership tier) and is another incentive for buying from the brand.
Overall, this is a lovely set to buy for yourself, as a stocking stuffer or just to split – with the discount, each product comes to roughly CAD$11 each, a total bargain compared to buying them separately.
Now over to you! Did you buy anything during the Black Friday sale and what do you think of MAC’s holiday releases?
