MAC Holiday Collection 2015|Enchanted Eve: Essential Brush Bag|Review

IMG_5311MAC has come up with quite an elaborate holiday collection this year; Enchanted Eves. I love the name! The blue toned metallic packaging is the icing on the cake and this cake is running out of the shelves as you watch. It is almost impossible to find these limited edition gems in stock anymore.

This year’s MAC holiday collection, Enchanted Eve, consisted of 3 kinds of brush sets; Basic, Essential and Mineralize.

The Essentials brush kit included 3 brushes I was anyways looking to buy so I felt this was a great deal so I choose it and decided to splurge before they too go out of stock ( this lipstick I wanted went out of stock in a day! :/ ).

This brush kit features 5 ‘bold hued metallic ferrule’ brushes and includes a matching ‘black ribbed’ brush bag.


Let’s talk packaging first guys. This is one of most beautiful packaging MAC has ever come up with. The peacock inspired shades used in the packing is just too beautiful *ahhhh*. Every brush was individually packed and then packed together and together. I just love how delicate they were with these. I don’t have an explanation but I am a huge sucker for packaging and how carefully its done.IMG_5312

Also the quality of everything including the brush bag has not been compromised at any point which I thought was quite impressive.

I feel like the whole holiday collection this year has been pretty awesome. MAC has really done a great job and I just want to take all of them home with me except I have been splurging too much on makeup lately so I am really trying to self-discipline here *hint: I went to Sephora and we all know what happens there.

I may go back to get a thing or two from this collection hopefully if it is still in stock.

This brush kit includes:IMG_5316

** I don’t know how I didn’t notice that strand of hair on all these pics, its mine and please ignore. *sigh*

It is named the “essentials” brush kit and I feel rightly so, it has all the essential multifunctional brushes beyond the basic ones you need. Although I havent started using them yet since I just got them yesterday, they feel super soft, are so perfectly sized and I can so see them working like a wonder. *They are so pretty, I don’t even feel like using them because I don’t want to ruin them. You get what I mean yeah!?!* *sigh*

They are priced at $52.40 ( 8640 yen including taxes) which is in MAC terms pretty great for 5 brushes. If you are on a lookout for purchasing MAC brushes I would totally recommend checking out these brush kits, one of them should meet your needs and the priced so good. If spending so much on brushes isn’t your cup of tea, there’s so many other cheaper alternatives that you could look at.

The brush bag included is pretty, good quality and compact. I like compact. πŸ˜€IMG_5325

That was my thoughts on this brush kit. I have so many hauls and reviews lined up but so little time to sit down and work on them. I know I have been quite off the schedule lately, but all this travelling has given me no time to do them. I will update you guys more and hopefully stick to my post schedule.

Hope everyone’s having a good time. Toodles. Xx

  1. I’v been debating weather to buy these or not I love the new colours/packaging! Do you know if these are full sized brushes (like the handles) or more of travel size version? xx

    1. They are more like a travel size version as in they are shorter but the 3 eye brushes itself are the regular size. If there’s a bit of a size difference I assume it is in the face and contour brush but honestly I feel they would work just about the same. In my opinion it’s worth checking out. πŸ™‚


  2. This is most definitely an Essential brush set if I ever saw one. I much prefer MAC’s brushes with the white hair – they’re so much softer and hold their shape really well over time. That 239 shading brush is one of my all time favourites! I also love how colourful the ferrules are on these brushes. πŸ™‚

    1. I was looking to get 3 out the 5 brushes from MAC anyways, and when I saw this kit included it all I was on the 9th cloud. I agree the white ones are really soft in comparison. I’m so much in love with the colorful ferrules. Xx 😊
