1st Impressions: MAC Mariah Carey Collection

1/12/2017


When MAC was announcing that they were releasing Mariah Carey Collection this past December, I wasn't excited AT FIRST..........

Back in 2015, MAC released the Mariah Carey lipstick call "All I Want" but the package was boring, the color wasn't flattering for me (just my opinion), and it seems MAC wasn't really into pushing this Mariah Carey product.  So when I heard they were doing another collection for her around Christmas, I was pretty skeptical.  BUT BABY......MAC blew it out of the water with the products, the makeup selection, and the overall hype (which yes, I was all hyped up for it):

Everything about this collection screams Mariah Carey, from the glitter, the bling, and the color selection.  I didn't pick up everything from the collection (and some items sold out fast that I couldn't get my hands on it 😪  but I am overall happy with the items that I picked up.


When I first saw the collection, the first thing that I wanted was the Extra Dimension Skinfinish powder.  First, can we all agree that the design is beautiful with her face imprinted into the product.....I almost didn't want to use it because of the design:

I love using this as a highlighter and also for my eyeshadow..........it's the perfect gold highlight for my skintone.

The next product that I picked up from the collection was the "I'm That Chick You Like" Eyeshadow Quad:


If you have been following my blog for awhile then you know I love neutral palettes so this one caught my eyes.  It is a mixture of warm, neutral, brown shades that I just adore 😍😍😍😍😍😍.  The shadows are creamy and easy to blend.  I didn't have any fallout from using these shadows and the colors lasted all day:


The last thing I picked up was two lipglass glosses from the collection:


I really wasn't interested in the lipsticks with the exception of "I Get So OOC" which was sold out 😑 but I did pick up two lipglass glosses that I wanted to get, "Butterfly Bling" and "It's Just Like Honey":


I love both of them.....I wear these alone or over the top of other lipsticks which gives it the perfect bling.  I know a lot of people do not like glosses with glitter or that is very shiny but this fits right up my alley.

Overall, I love the Mariah Carey collection and if you are still interested in the collection, there are a few things that are still for sale but please note that these are limited edition.  The things that are sold out are on sale on eBay but you already know that sellers has jacked up the price and you have to be careful that you are not getting a knockoff:
