M.A.C Guilty Passions Gift Set

Since I began blogging in August, I have read about M.A.C this and M.A.C that, so much so that I became utterly jealous of anyone who owned M.A.C products.     There is no option to buy this over the counter where I live, yes I could purchase it online but never have so it is my own fault entirely.

Well, for my Christmas my sister bought me my first ever M.A.C product, all hail the Guilty Passions 4 Nicely Nude Lip Gloss Collection!

Each and everyone a delight!

Packaging - the glosses came presented in this cute round pink gift box with a black plastic bow on top, very stylish and will definitely be reused i'm still debating what to put in it because it is so pretty.  

The Glosses

Fashion Whim - is the lightest shade, this is a Cremesheen Glass gloss  which M.A.C say is a 'lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M∙A∙C Lipglass'  .  This colour is a particular favourite of mine out of the pack, it can be used over a nice peach or pink lipstick to give it a bit of something else, an extra sparkle..  

Kiss Don't Tell - this is the dark matte colour in the pack in a dark chocolate shade.  This is also a Cresmesheen Glass gloss and is my favourite for afternoon/evening meeting the girls for shopping and wine lipgloss, as it is quite subtle and is not too ott.  Very nice. 

Tip - If you find that the "Kiss Don't Tell' is too dark for you, try mixing it with Fashion Whim, they blend nicely together  

Satin Slip - this is the next light shade of the pack and it is a Dazzleglas Creme Gloss which M.A.C say - 'Flashing flecks of lustrous glimmer give lips a new kind of high-beam shine, while the balm-effect of the pillow top comfort creme keeps the supple going and going.  For dazzle with absolute comfort''.  The shimmer in this gloss is ideal to spice up your lips whether using it on its own (I can't use nudes on their own as i'm too pale) or as an overcoat to your lipstick. 

Last but not least..

Get Rich Quick (I wish) - This is the prettiest gloss in the box, very glam and excellent for parties and nights out.  In my opinion it is a dark burgundy colour with a purple shimmer through it .. it's actually quite difficult to describe, but the colour doesn't go on heavy it is actually quite sheer once applied and again can be used on its own or to jazz up another lipstick.  This one is a M.A.C Dazzleglass which M.A.C describe as 'Lipcolour that dazzles with light and shine to bring an exciting dimensional pop to your lips'

I love the scent of Get Rich Quick, vanilla.  They all smell nice though.   

The Cremeshene Glass glosses have a normal brush wand however the Dazzleglosses have a doe-foot applicator which is quite hard and has fine bristles - this is my only negative, i'm not a big fan of doe-foot applicators, comes down to personal preferences, I sometimes find them too hard but these aren't too bad. 

I don't find these glosses too sticky which is normally the reason I avoid glosses but these are very nice, and easy to wear.  They keep my lipstick on longer and are perfect for sticking in my hand bag. 

I don't think the gift sets are available anymore as they are sold out on Selfridges website and I can't see them on M.A.C however, M.A.C do sell all these shades along with a huge range of others on their website for £17 each.    

What do you think of these?  Do you have them?  Did you get any M.A.C for Christmas?
