MAC holiday collection gets thumbs up

This fall, MAC Cosmetics released a slew of new product: Brooke Shields, Viva Glam Rhianna 2, the Kinky Boots Collection and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Now the company has released the Holiday 2014 MAC Keepsakes. The collection offers an array of coordinated sets for eyes, cheeks and lips in glittery cameo cases. There are plenty of coordinated shimmery colors, as well as mattes, for nails and lips. After a week of testing, the eye shadows and blushes held up well during the course of a normal day. Most of the lipsticks held up, too, with the exception of a few of the reds, which began to bleed after an hour of wear. The exception was "Sparks of Romance" matte in the holiday. It lasts for hours. GRADE: A-
