mariah-carey

After the gorgeous Nutcracker Collection now Mac Cosmetics collaborated with Mariah Carey and came out with an iconic collection called the “Mariah Carey Collection”. This collab launched online December 8th and was available in stores December 15th! The packaging on this collection is super glam, sparkly and gorrgeous!!!

The collection includes five lipsticks in frost and cremesheen finishes ($20), five Lipglass shades ($18.50), two lip pencils ($22), two eyeshadow quads ($41), one liquid liner ($22), two sets of lashes ($18), a gold shimmer Skinfinish ($45.50), two powder blushes ($24), a loose powder ($39.50), and two brushes-183 buffer brush & 239 Eye Shader Brush.
I personally have not had very good luck with Mac Limited-edition eye shadows or blushes, so the only things I picked up from this collection is one Extra Dimension Skinfinish in My Mimi & Lipstick in I GET SO OOC.

First off lets admire the beautiful brushed gold packaging! Its is a beautifully designed skin finish with Mariah’s face embossed on it with her hair on the side of her face, her lashe-y eye, nose, lips and even her beauty mark! that is kind of cool!! Its a very soft burnt gold, slightly coppery with gold shimmers, however it is not crazy pigmented and blends like a dream so it does not look like you are wearing a ton of shimmery product on your face. It is a very soft powder unlike any the other skin finishes i own. Almost like liquid-powder highlighter with a luminous, well-defined finish.
For tan to darker complexions, this is a gorgeous highlight, for a medium toned girl like me it works really well like as a blush, bronzer and even as eyeshadow!

MAC Mariah Carey Lipsticks

The Lipstick colors in this collection are very light nudes and probably well suited for lighter skin tones, there are five lipsticks out of which four are light nudes, only one color that I feel will work of all skin tones. It is called ‘I GET SO OOC’. It is a frost finish and is very pretty shiny mauve.

I love the sparkly silver packaging on the Lipsticks, It looks so luxurious and girly! It almost looks like the lipsticks have been dipped in silver glitter. It also has a signature of Mariah Carey on the tube. The actual lipstick bullet is engraved with a butterfly on it.

MAC Mariah Carey – I Get So OOC

I get so out of control?? I assume it is supposed to mean that! It is a lovely plummy brown with a frosty sheen. The color of the lipstick looks a bit dark in the tube but goes on a bit sheer. It has semi-opaque color coverage that goes on a bit patchy but builds up well to a nice opaque color. The consistency is emollient & smooth, it didn’t tug on the lips when applied directly from the tube. The finish is metallic but is not too dramatic, and I like how creamy it feels on my lips, feels very hydrating. I also use it as a lipstick topper to give a little shine in the center of my lips. The lipstick lasted on me for good 4-5 hours.
