MAC X Mariah Carey

Hi everyone! I'm a bit late to the party posting on this collection however I got these for Christmas and I really wanted to share them with you! When I'd seen the Mariah Carey collection with MAC online I actually fell in love with the packaging. To be honest I do think some MAC collections are a total gimmick, it's all about the packaging half the time as you can usually get most of the products in really similar shades from the standard range anyway, however I couldn't turn these down at all they were so gorgeous. I'm also a bit surprised I was able to get them as some of MAC's limited edition collections sell out so quickly, however I managed to get my pick of exactly what I wanted and I was given them for Christmas. Speaking of Mariah Carey did anyone else see that really uncomfortable New Years Eve performance? I've only watched it once but I couldn't actually rewatch it again because it made me cringe that much! 


I actually cannot deal with the packaging, the lipstick comes in a gorgeous silver sparkly bullet and the lip glass has the same lid, and both have her signature on them. I didn't want too much from the collection and these were the only shades I was bothered about so I just have the two products, but I wasn't really interested in getting anymore. The lipstick shade I have is Dahhlinggg! and it's a cremesheen finish which is actually my favourite MAC lipstick formula, I'm really not for matte products at all. It's a light-medium pinky peach with warmer undertones and a natural finish. The lip glass is in the shade Dreamlover which is a translucent pink with pink and silver pearl. I choose these two as I loved both of them individually but they were basically the perfect match for each other if I wanted to share them together.



I absolutely love the butterfly engraved on the lipstick, another reason why these products are so pretty! The lip glass wand is just your standard doe foot applicator as well, really easy to apply and not too messy.


I really do like both the shades, the lipstick is actually a bit lighter than what I would usually go for, however my natural lip pigment is a bit darker anyway so I think I'm just not to seeing my lips look so light, the formula is a lot creamier than any other cremesheen lipstick I've used from MAC. It's good because it's nice and hydrating however it doesn't have much staying power. I also found that it was quite sheer and needed building up a lot. It still looked really pretty on though and I do think I'll get a lot of use out of this. I absolutely love the lip glass though and I rarely use lip glosses. It's very sheer so I like to pair it with the lipstick so you have more colour too but it just looks so pretty and shimmery on but not too over the top. Plus it doesn't have a really sticky formula either so it's not uncomfortable to wear.

These are definitely the prettiest lip products I own, I have some of the MAC Cinderella collection from a while back and I remember going mad for them just because of how pretty the whole collection was but I definitely prefer the Mariah Carey products! I think I'll use these a lot in spring and summer, however the downside of such nice LE products is that you feel like you don't want to use them because once they're gone that's it. I'm really close to 500 followers on Bloglovin so I'd appreciate it so much if you followed me because I really want to hit that milestone! Let me know in the comments if you've tried anything from this collection and what you think!

  11. I can't imagine the level of embarrassment that she went through for the New Year performance! I feel bad for her. That aside, this collection is one of the prettiest from Mac.

  20. I'm not Mariah's biggest fans, I think she's really overrated and such a diva! That said, even I can't deny how incredible the packaging of this range is!

  22. I don't normally go for lipglosses anymore either, but I love the look of this one! The shade looks pretty spot on too. I find the same with lighter lipsticks, that they just don't go with my lip colour, but I would definitely give the lipgloss a go :) xx

  24. Whilst I agree that the packaging is just beautiful, I didn't really like any of the shades/products in the collection. Looking at the gloss now though it doesn't look too bad x
