I can safely say that this is the prettiest make-up collection collab MAC Cosmetics has ever made. I'm talking about the MAC Cosmetics Mariah Carey Collection. Gold details combined with silver, sparkly glitter: what else does a girl need right?! However, not only the packaging, but also the colors of this collection are to die for. Beautiful creamy nudes, matte peachy blushes and shimmery taupe eyeshadows are definitely up my street when it comes to make-up. Mariah Carey did well! If you want to know more about this stunning collab, keep reading my review!
We’ve long been dazzled by the chanteuse of the century. Now, Mariah Carey brings her impeccable glamour to a makeup collection that’s all you’ll ever want and a lot more, with sexy nude tones sparkling like champagne and glimmering like diamonds! Luxurious packaging in silver glitter with champagne gold accents and Mariah’s signature.

It's pretty obvious I'm obsessed with the packaging of the MAC Cosmetics Mariah Carey collection. I just love the platinum gold packaging combined with silver glitter. It looks really pretty on my make-up vanity and I honestly just can't stop looking at it!

How promising are these swatches? I feel like MAC Cosmetics never disappoints when it comes to the quality of their products. Of course, some make-up products do not work for everybody, but quality wise, this collection is great. All colors are very wearable, yet pigmented. I also feel like they are neutral, but not boring. My faves are the lipstick in Dahhlinggg (perfect nude for my skintone!) and the eyeshadow I'd Give My All (really interesting taupe-ish grey shade). The lipglass isn't that pigmented, but that does make it the perfect 'topping' for any of your other lipsticks! The blush however is EXTREMELY pigmented, which makes it the perfect color for any of my darker skin toned beauts!

This is the look I created with the MAC Cosmetics Mariah Carey collection. I think it turned out great! I'm completely obsessed with this eyeshadow quad, especially I'd Give My All. It's very hard to describe color, but that doesn't make it any less stunning. I would say it is a shimmery grey taupe-ish color that compliments any blue, green or grey eyes perfectly. I used it all over the lid, bringing it up a bit higher to the crease as well. I made the look extra smokey by adding a bit of warmth from the color Twinks to my crease and added some smokeyness by using Images of Rapture on my lashline. I finished it off with some Diamond Butterfly highlight in my inner corner and browbone. For my face I used the Sweet Sweet Fantasy blush. I have to warn you guys; the color is stunning, however, it's really pigmented. You can easily overdo it, so use a light touch! Last but not least, the lippy that I wore is the lipstick in Dahhlinggg and the lipglass in Butterfly Bling. It turned out to be the perfect nude lip in my opinion!
YAY OR NAY?
I'm definitely recommending this MAC Cosmetics Mariah Carey collection for sure. Not only is the packaging stunning, the quality of the products itself is also great. Definitely what you would expect from MAC! My favorite is definitely the It's Everything Eye Shadow x 4, but I also love the color and the packaging of the lipstick. However, I would recommend any of the products that I reviewed, they are honestly so lovely and wearable! I would love to know which make-up product you would like to try out yourself!
The collection is going to be sold starting from the 17th of December 2016 in The Netherlands. You can order it here online.
