It’s been awhile since I’ve been really impressed by any collection, but MAC’s holiday 2016 lineup, Nutcracker Sweet, is one that made me stop and take notice. The individual products are versatile enough to work well beyond the holiday season, and the gift sets are pretty universally appealing, making them really giftable. Since this collection is massive, I’m going to break it down into a few posts. Today, I start off with the mini kits, which all house tinier versions of limited-edition products.
