BRB: mourning the death of my wallet because the MAC Cosmetics x Mariah Carey Holiday 2016 Collection just dropped and it's essential that I own like, all of the glitter goodness. Trust me when I say you won't be disappointed — I mean, there's gold body shimmer involved, so that pretty much speaks for itself. Plus, let us not forget this is Mariah Carey, music extraordinaire and now, makeup maven. Ready for the full 411 on what's in the Mariah Carey and MAC collection?
Glamour is the main affair here, with no inch of skin spared. According to Fashionista, the 22-piece collection includes two makeup brushes, a liquid powder highlighter, false eyelashes, two eyeshadow palettes, four lipglosses, five lipsticks, two lip pencils, a liquid eyeliner, body powder and two blushes. Hello, beauty bounty.
Each product comes decked out in its own glitzy packaging — think silver sparkles, bows, and holiday sophistication. And with names that pay homage to Carey's own smash hits — "Touch My Body" is a iridescent gold body loose powder, while "You've Got Me Feeling" is a candy pink blush — it will be hard to contain your shopping list to just a few items.
The range is packed with smoldering nude tones that are perfect for both day and night. From pearlescent plums to rich honey hues, creating your own million dollar, Mariah Carey-approved look is only a swipe of highlighter (and liner) away.
