The MAC Stroke of Midnight holiday 2013 collection is one more sweet temptation the retailer has prepared for the upcoming festive days. Unlike the MAC Divine Night collection which is defined by bold colors, the new line seems to bring more versatile options, catering to those who don't necessarily want products that work only for special occasions. Another important distinction between the two is that this MAC holiday 2013 line, which will be available starting with October 24, also feature brush sets as opposed to color products only. There are many covetable options in the new line, so let's take a closer look at the multitude of new offerings:
