MAC Holiday Collection 2015: Magic Of The Night Lip Liner & Lipstick

The last thing I bought were these amazing bits from the Magic of the Night Holiday Collection.. these are definitely my favourite bits. The packaging is so so gorgeous. 

The lipstick looks like a sassy bullet from a gun! I love that even the boxes are metallic purple too! 

The lipstick is in the shade "Darkside", which is a dark red-burgundy. It's also an amplified finish, which is my absolute favourite type of MAC lipstick. They are always so so pigmented and long wearing - but moisturising. 

The liner goes absolutely perfectly with the lipstick. I normally struggle with really dark lip liners. I find that they cling on to dry patches, no matter how moisturised my lips are ('Currant' by MAC especially). They also tend to bleed and just be generally hard to work with. That's probably more my lack of skill though.

I found this lip liner lovely! It's a really dark plummy colour. It goes on really smoothly, and its so creamy and lovely. And also in the metallic packing!

Here are both the products swatched. The liner is a lot darker than the lipstick, so the liner definitely brings the darkness to the whole look. You can just use the liner lightly, or darken it up, which I love.

I also use the lipstick on it's own a lot for a less intense burgundy lip.

What do you think about MAC's holiday collection? Have you picked up anything from it?
