I've been meaning to get this post out for a few weeks now but life has caught up with me! I just finished school last month and now I have a part-time gig O_O lol! I've been trying not to go too crazy on holiday related products and posts because most seasonal themed items are limited edition and trying to get them published BEFORE they're sold out can be a bit overwhelming.
Anywho, MAC released a couple holiday collections last month and I ordered a few items from Glamour Daze for Holiday 2012. It's a really pretty collection with a nice selection of very wearable and versatile shades. They also have a few gift sets that would make fab stocking stuffer's ^_^ Check out a few pics and swatches of a few of the items I purchased below, along with my review.

Glare: I don't know if it's just me or just the brand but I've noticed that some of the formulas on lighter shades such as Outrageously Fun don't go on as smooth as other shades. It's hard to explain but the texture feels kinda crumbly? and just hard to get a smooth, even, coverage. This is my first time trying an eyeliner from MAC and I must say that I'm not too impressed with Feline. I hope their other liners are better. This one smudges and doesn't really stay in place on me. I've definitely had better experiences with drugstore brands than this. I do love both nail lacquers and the formula is pretty decent; however I don't think they're worth the price. $17.50 is riDAMNdiculous for a brand that caters more so to makeup than polish. MAC's regular priced polishes are $16. I'm not sure what the extra $1.50 was for with these, maybe because they're limited edition? Either way both prices are too high. I'm a polish connoisseur and have seen much better quality in brands that are half that price. Soooo yeah, I surely own't be buying MAC's polishes by the masses.
Would I Recommend It? You know, the collection is really cute and I am pretty satisfied with most of the items I chose. The entire Glamour Daze collection has a nice selection of soft and earthy shades. If you like sparkle Everything That Glitters is a must-have. Other than that there's really nothing strikingly special to me.
Where To Buy: Glamour Daze is a limited edition collection for the holidays and because of that, the availability of some of the items is scarce or sold out. To see more items from the collection and what's still available please visit www.maccosmetics.com.
