MAC Holiday Lips: Passions of Red and Adoring Carmine

To recap, Passions of Red includes 4 eyeshadow palettes (Warm, Cool, Smoky, and Classic) and 3 lip palettes (Coral, Cool Pink, and Plum). Adoring Carmine includes 3 brush sets and 3 drawstring bags (Red Lips, Neutral Lips, and Rose Lips), each with 3 lip products. If you like the brush sets, I recommend heading to Nordstrom, where they’re $35 each instead of $49.50.

The lip palettes are $22.50 ($27 in Canada) and each comes with a 213SE brush. As with the eye palettes, the color of each compact is slightly different. All three shades in Coral Lips are subtly sparkly. Cool Pink has a very sparkly gloss, a somewhat sparkly lipstick, and the only lipstick that is completely sparkle-free (Make Me Melt). Plum Lips is the sparkliest trio, overall.

The Adoring Carmine sets are $34.50 each ($42 in Canada). All the glosses in Adoring Carmine are sparkly.
