The M·A·C Christmas Gift Guide
You’re not alone if you’re struggling for gorgeous gifts ideas this year. But don’t worry! The MAC Malta team has got you covered with the Malta edition of their annual M·A·C Gift Guide, full of beautiful gifts for every person (and price point) on your Christmas gift list.
MAC Cosmetics Brand Manager Natasha recommends combining two of MAC’s bestselling products a custom gift set your closest friends will love.
Prep and Prime Fix+ Setting Spray (€20.50) with Fast Response Eye Cream (€36) are must-have’s for every season and every age. Plus, they’re multitaskers! Fast Response Eye Cream smoothes and soothes under eyes on its own, or, combine with concealer for flawless, natural-looking coverage. Prep and Prime Fix+ spray can be used under makeup as a primer, over makeup as a setting spray, combined with a foundation to create sheer coverage, or spritzed on makeup brushes to enhance the colour of eye shadow! In other words, Fix+ is sure to become your friend’s newest BFF.
Make mum feel extra special this Christmas with gorgeous gifts she can use on the go. Busy mums will love this one-and-done set of products recommended by Ylenia (MAC Cosmetics, Tower Road):
- Creamy Glow Play bouncy blush (€27.50) is super easy to apply on the fly
- Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation (€34) is a bestselling one-and-done powder for a soft-focus, matte finish mum won’t have to fuss to achieve
- MAC matte lipstick (€20) in bestselling shades Velvet Teddy, Soar and Mehr suit a super wide range of skin tones and create the perfect pout in just one swipe
- In Extreme Dimension 3D Lash Black Mascara (€25 full size, €10 mini size) give tired eyes an instant lift
Princess Anne (MAC Cosmetics, Tower Road) thinks our mini MAC lipsticks (€10 each, available in 20 shades) and mini Fix+ vibes setting sprays (€12.50 each, available in 7 scents) make the perfect Secret Santa gifts — and we couldn’t agree more! Mix and match to create a Secret Santa gift they’ll want to tell everyone about.
Dorothea (MAC Cosmetics Valletta) recommends Prep and Prime Lip Primer (€20) and a MAC matte Lipstick (€20) for the uni or college student on your Christmas list who loves all things sophisticated.
Amy (MAC Cosmetics Tigne Point) recommends treating your BFF to MAC False Lashes #83 (Siren) for a glam gift they can use over and over — up to 20 times! If your BFF has been extra nice this year, treat them to MAC’s cult classic Art Library “It’s Designer” eye shadow palette (€46.50), too. Combining 12 colourful shades, professional makeup artists rave about this palette, and your BFF will too!
Finally, Ylenia recommends adding a little shimmer to your stocking fillers with MAC’s limited edition bauble ornaments (€12 each) with a miniature MAC Fix+ spray, lipstick or mascara suspended in a glittering bauble package. These lovely little baubles are the perfect pick for colleagues, too!
