MAC Starring You Holiday Collection Star Dipped Light Face Palette Review

The new MAC Holiday collection has several pieces and is a rather large collection with a collection of individual products and several gift sets. I’ve picked up two items thus far, one of which is the Light Face Palette.

The compact is a thick cardboard packaging with pink glitter over the surface. My initial thought when I opened this is that it was a little smaller size than I had expected.

I picked up one of the two palettes available: Star Dipped Face Compact in Light. This palette features two blushes and two highlighters in the extra dimension formulas:

  • Extra Dimension Blush: Sippin’ On Stars (Warm peach)
  • Extra Dimension Blush: Dipped In Stars (Light yellow pink w/ gold shimmer)
  • Extra Dimension Skinfinish: Show Gold (Peach that breaks pink)
  • Extra Dimension Skinfinish: Hi-Sequincy (Soft ivory shimmer)

This palette also comes in a medium/deep color option but three of the four shades in it are repeat shades which I already have.

The only repeat shade in this palette is Show Gold, which can be purchased individually from the permanent line. This color is one of my favorite highlighters from MAC because of the pretty pink shift.


Overall, this palette has great pigmentation, applies smoothly, and blends easily into the skin. I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this palette and feel this is the stand out product from the collection.

Did you pick up anything from this collection?
