Pre- Diwali season is officially among us, and desi brands are scurrying to give you the best deals on their items, cuz hey, if you don’t spend outrageous amounts of coin during festivals, what ARE you doing with your life?


And OG beauty brand, MAC Cosmetics have launched the perfect kits to achieve a ~lewk~ while donning your outfits and slaying all your Instagram posts. The brand’s official Instagram posted a picture of the kits yesterday evening and your girl is here with the tea (okay, there’s no tea). Read on to find out what you’re getting in the kits this year.


MAC Cosmetics India have dropped two Diwali kits, called “Light It Up”, which of-course are limited edition, so you might want to grab them as soon as you can – for yourself, for your friends, for anybody who loves makeup. The two kits are as follows

  1. Light It Up Eye Kit


The eye kit comes in a magnetic rectangular cardboard box packaging, and has an abstract design. It contains the following items


Fashion Fanatic Eyeshadow : From the MAC Girls Collection, this palette features new pressed powder eyeshadow formulas in Satin Shine, Smooth Pearl, Foiled Shadow and Creamy Matte that deliver a creamy, silky texture with superior colour payoff, while a new highlighter formula in Opalescent is lightweight and glides on skin for just the right amount of pearl and pop.

In Extreme Dimension Mascara : M.A.C’s lightweight whipped carbon black formula adds dense volume, extends length and creates curl, while conditioning for softness and flexibility. The gigantic moulded brush stores the optimal amount of mascara in three reservoirs that allow for the maximum amount of mascara with each stroke, while keeping the lashes from clumping together. The tip of the brush allows for precision in accentuating lower lashes and small hair at the corners of the eye. The final result: extreme dimension that won’t smudge, clump or flake.

Liquidlast Liner : M.A.C introduces this rich liquid eye liner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line. It goes on effortlessly. Applies with its own brush to draw a perfectly defined line. You get it in the shade “Wet Road”

Mini Cleanse Off Oil : An industry-strength oil-based makeup remover that is gentle on the skin. Botanically formulated with oils of olive fruit, evening primrose and jojoba seed and completely free of mineral oil. Massages onto skin to loosen all makeup, including waterproof mascara. Emulsifies upon contact with water and then rinses off cleanly and easily, leaving skin feeling soft.
