MAC Glitter and Ice Holiday Collection came out recently. I really liked the theme of this one, it has an icy Snow Bunny type of feel to it. This collection had a bunch of new items, including paint pots, beauty powders, lipsticks, new brush kits, etc. I only items that I was interested in were the paint pots. I love paint paints and had my eye on "Morning Frost" from the promotional pictures. I didn't buy this online, like I normally do with MAC collections because I wanted to swatch it in person because I was worried it might be glittery and fallouty like the Cham Pale paint pots. But I was pleasantly surprised.
The packaging for this collection is really cute, all the items come in shiny silver boxes (like Christmas!) and white lids. This paint pot will stand out amongst all my black lids. (Colour on nail is Sally Hansan's Instant Dri in Bronze Albaze nice colour and goes well with this product).
Morning Frost is described as a "shimmering champagne taupe" which is pretty much a perfect description. This is the "it" colour that everyone likes, on their nails, on their eyes, it's a great winterized shade. Paint pots in this collection are limited edition ($22 CAD each), the other two Let's Skate and For Effect were pretty too, but they looked too glittery and I thought I would get more wear out of this one.
After bringing it home, I thought I had a similar shade and after rummaging through my dresser of abandoned makeup, I found Benefit's Birthday Suit Creaseless Creme Shadow which is similar upon first glance.
But as you can tell Birthday Suit is more brown and lighter when swatched, and Morning Frost is definitely more purple/taupe based. I would definitely suggest you pick up Morning Frost if you like colours like this. Paint pots make for a great base under eyeshadow or even on their own. I really like this one.
Did you pick up anything from MAC's Glitter and Ice?
