The beauty brand is starting the holiday pre-season by giving something back: to thank its "loyal customers," it has assembled a set of its best-sellers (including eye and lip products as well as powder and beauty tools), which sells at $38 instead of the products' actual total worth of $192.

While most other collections become available beginning of November, MAC's holiday range doesn't hit stores until the 25th but it might be worth waiting for the brand's vintage-inspired Baroque Boudoirline. Its other Christmas range, Magic, Mirth & Mischie, comprising makeup kits to solve any beauty issue, is already on sale.
