'Tis the season.

Words by

George Tzintzis

It’s around this time of the year when you're at the shops, and you see Christmas decorations for the first time. You basically have a mini heart attack and think out loud, ‘where the f*** did the year go?’

Instead of going into panic mode about Christmas shopping, feast your eyes on this.

MAC is making the art of giving a whole lot simpler with its 2017 holiday collection dubbed the Snowball collection.

A makeup lover’s dream, the huge offering swaps out MAC’s sleek black packaging for frosted metallic gold casing.

There are lipsticks in multiple shades, snowflake-embossed eyeshadow kits and various gift packs featuring mascaras, lip glosses and perfumes. 

But a collection is nothing without its statement piece.

The range features a set of gold false eyelashes that are way OTT and a set of silver ones that are even more extreme.

If there was ever a time to shine bright, Christmas is that time.

It's all set to drop on October 19.
