MAC Glitter and Ice Holiday Collection

I had too much fun shopping at MAC when their Holiday collection, Glitter and Ice, hit the site.  I ended up buying both beauty powders, all the lipsticks, all the glosses, two of the kohl liners, two of the paint pots, and two of the eyeshadows.  They finally showed up to my door today in their shiny, shimmery packages.  Totally made my day.  Anyway, here's what I bought and the swatches.  Happy shopping!!!
