The MAC x Mariah Carey Collection Is As Sparkly And Girly As You Hoped

November 21, 2016

All we want for Christmas is this.

In the ranking of makeup collections that are almost too pretty to use, the new MAC x Mariah Carey collection would score first place.

You might need sunglasses to look at the packaging with all that glitter, shimmer, and sparkle, but we absolutely love how girly and true to Mariah Carey’s OTT style it is. Aside from the disco ball packaging, the makeup itself is as highly pigmented and wearable as MAC fans have come to expect.

The gold and chocolate hues in the eyeshadow palettes include a subtle hint of purple sure to create a perfect smokey eye, while the lipsticks are nude perfection and the brushes are so lit – we can’t even. The whole line is like having Mariah herself throw a glitterbomb of gloriousness on you.

The collection drops on December 15, making it the perfect Christmas present for beauty aficionados and Mariah Carey fans alike (we’re obviously both). And if past MAC collabs are anything to go by, this one will sell out faster than you can list your fave Mariah Carey songs (so many!), so tell Santa to be quick, or treat yo’self to some pre-Chrissie gifts…
