Figure skater Johnny Weir is known for putting plenty of pizzazz into his routines on the rink, whether he’s sporting Ke$ha-esque glitter and sequins or rocking Lady GaGa-like costumes on the ice (or a little bit of both). So who better suited to lend his own inspiration to MAC’s upcoming Holiday Collection than the fabulous Ice Prince himself? The Glitter & Ice collection, set to hit shelves late this month, is gorgeously wintry without being too literal, courtesy of plenty of icy pastels, soft shimmer, and the occasion surprise dose of cranberry red. While the festive new colors encapsulate everything from lipsticks and Dazzleglasses to nail lacquers and Beauty Powder, my favorite pieces definitely come in the form of the icy eye shadows and liners. Silver-swirled Mineralize Shadows in six sugarplum-fairy-inspired shades make for a beautiful winter-festive take on traditional springy colors, and I’m intrigued by the muted jewel-toned liners! Do any of these sparkly pastel shades speak to you loud enough to put them on your holiday wishlist?
