M.A.C NUTCRACKER SWEET RED LIPSTICK KIT
A kit of miniature treasures brimming with four mini Lipsticks in candy cane red shades. This coordinated kit for lips comes in a stylish little box featuring a fuchsia and burgundy design with gold accents.
This kit of mini MAC lipsticks retails for $42.00 CAD. Each lipstick, in this set of 4, is 1.8 g / 0.06 oz. each. A regular full sized MAC lipstick is 3 g / 0.1 oz. and retails for $21.00 CAD each. Each mini lipstick is 0.02 g larger than half of one full sized MAC lipstick.
The cost comparison of both sizes:
Full size: $7.00 CAD/gram
Mini size: $5.83 CAD/gram
MAC describes the colours in this kit as follows:
Lady Danger: Vivid bright coral red (Matte)
MAC Red: Vivid bright bluish red (Satin)
Diva: Intense reddish burgundy (Matte)
Rebel: Midtonal cream plum (Satin)
All four of these colours are part of MAC's permanent line. I didn't have any of these colours either, so, definitely a great way of trying out the shades with my skin tone. Cost per gram is slightly cheaper in these kits vs. buying a full size lipstick, which is always bonus. Not to mention how great of a gift any of these Nutcracker Sweet sets would be for most.
At $42.00 CAD, that could be a steep price to spend on one person for the Holidays, but, if you were to break up the set and maybe create mini gift bags, toss a cute bow on each lipstick, these would be adorable to give separately.
