MAC Objects of Affection for Holiday 2014 – Nude + Red Lipglass Swatches and Review
It’s the holiday season and with it comes glorious gift sets! I will admit, I’m a sucker for holiday palettes and gift sets – they’re usually such an amazing value and a great way to try out multiple shades at an affordable price. Even better is the packaging porn that accompanies them! This year, one of the sassiest sets I’ve seen is from the MAC Objects of Affection Holiday Collection. I mean, just take a gander at this Lipglass set!
Housed in a glittery, girly oval box with a cameo medallion on the lid, the MAC Objects of Affection Nude + Red Lipglass Set ($35) contains 4 gorgeous glosses. I’m going to take a brief moment to mention the box these glosses come in are like a second gift. They are not the standard, disposable cardboard many brands resort to – these are a sturdy and solid plastic. You are going to want to keep this beauty.
I’m currently using mine to hold my statement necklaces. These gift boxes are completely reusable and belong on a dresser or vanity somewhere – the cameo is classic, while the glitz is modern. If so much thought was put into the box they come in, just imagine how lovely the glosses they contain are!
Ahh! And there they are!
The MAC Objects of Affection gloss sets are available in three shade collections; Nude and Red, Pink and Plum, Nude and Coral. I got to try out the Nude and Red Lipglass box housing Paper Lantern, Dynasty at Dusk, Deelight and Love Alert.
Paper Lantern – pale pink shimmer (cremesheen glass)
Dynasty At Dusk – peachy nude with gold shimmer (cremesheen glass)
Deelight – medium pink nude creme (cremesheen glass)
Love Alert – bright reddish pink with red and magenta microglitter (dazzleglass)
Paper lantern is the nudest nude pink – it leaves barely any color on lips while leaving lots of shine. Dynasty at Dusk is that perfect hint of peach gloss and pairs well with a smoky eye. Deelight is a perfect, everyday sheer neutral. Love Alert is a shimmering, sheer red that looks like you’ve just eaten a cherry popsicle – if that cherry popsicle contained glittery pearls.
The cremesheen glasses have a doe foot applicator, while the dazzleglasses have a brush. The four are all fairly sheer and universally flattering. These gorgeous shades are definitely for the gal that prefers a more sheer and neutral color palette.

Krista resides in the middle of nowhere with her bff/hubby and a puppy that makes feral capuchins seem mellow. She has an irrational fear of ax murder, owns more than one machete for home defense/the zombie apocalypse, and goes to sleep serenaded by the sounds of the Chupagobbler, a mythical turkey beast that roams the woods around her house. Krista has been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and still hasn’t vanished. She is super proud of that.
