MAC Cosmetics X Mariah Carey

MAC Cosmetics X Mariah Carey

Mac Cosmetics most anticipated collection is now here! It’s the dreamiest beauty line ever from pop diva Mariah Careyimg_2106img_2111

Beauty lovers from around the world have been waiting months for this collection,  I being one of them. I normally always miss out on the limited editions but this Christmas I was lucky enough to pick up everything I wanted!

Mac Cosmetics have totally revolutionised their packaging with silver sparkle and champagne gold luxe. The packaging alone is enough to make you buy it right?! Their lipstick bullets are beyond beautiful with the glitter and gold ring! With Mariah’s signature all over, you can tell the makeup has been curated for her.

With golden bronze and pinky nudes, the makeup is perfect just in time for all your festive parties too! I decided to pick up the highlighter, a lipstick, eyeliner and a dreamy eyeshadow palette. img_2115img_2119

So I’ll start off with the prettiest highlighter ever! It’s literally like gold dust. ‘My Mimi’ is a warm gold shimmer that’s part of the Extra Dimension SkinFinish. This highlighter collection is a cult fave with bloggers especially soft and gentle. This you could say is a bronzer as well but with the luminous shine I’m definitely using it on my cheeks, cupids bow and forehead.

One thing I thought of as well, use a setting spray and use this as eyeshadow?! I haven’t tried this yet but I reckon the pigmentation will be so pretty with a smoky eye.

It was a hard decision picking what lipstick shade to get. I love a good nude shade but the colours in Mariah’s collection seemed a little too pale for my liking so I decided to go for the brown in ‘I get so OOC’. I suppose a little out of my comfort zone but it’s actually such a stunning colour in person! With the Frost texture, this has a very creamy sheen finish and with the golden shimmer, its like wearing a highlighter on your lips. It has purple tones to it too so it’s very eye-catching to wear.


I haven’t tried a liquid eyeliner from Mac so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I picked up the shade ‘This is my night’ and its the perfect combination of black and ebony brown. With me having hazel eyes, I do suit brown better so I was excited to try this. The nib is very similar to my Lancome eyeliner and its sooo easy to apply. It dries really quickly too, so no worries of smudging. It works so nice on the glitteryest of eyeshadows so the pigmentation of this is perfect. Not gonna lie I thought I’d found my favourite liner in Lancome but this is a close contender at the moment…

Finally we have the 4 piece eyeshadow palette in ‘I’m that chick you like’. This features a matte shade, two satin shades and a shimmer. The thing I love about this palette is you can create the perfect smoky eye. You could just use this palette and your makeup is done. It’s a great ‘on the go‘ palette and like I mentioned even the highlighter will pair really nice with these shades. It was so hard to swatch the golden shade but its stunning in person, you can see the glitter in the brown shade so subtly as well.

Overall I’m super impressed with these products, worth the money and definitely not worth missing out on! I think everything’s out of stock now with no surprise but whoever did manage to pick something up, I hope you love them! They would make a gorge Christmas present too.MAC Cosmetics X Mariah Careyimg_2129

So excited to use these over Christmas especially for NYE! I’ll be posting a ‘Christmas party makeup look’ soon and I’ll include Mac Cosmetics Mariah Carey collection so keep a look out for it!
