MAC Mariah Carey – Review & Swatches

Hey beautiful people, hope you’re all well. Today I have an extremely belated little show and tell of the MAC Mariah Carey products I managed to snap up last month. Now I actually only managed to get 3 things from this collection however I’m over the moon with the ones I was lucky enough to get my hands on! So lets dive in…

First we have the Extra Dimension Skin Finish in My Mimi. This is my favourite out the 3 for sure. A beautifully buttery metallic golden compact, that swatches and applies like a dream. I’m a sucker for anything gold and shiny so I was so happy I managed to get this! Applied as a highlighter, it’s not as intense as you’d first presume after swatching, it definitely is a show stopping colour, but it doesn’t go as far to make you feel like you’re walking around with bright gold streaks across your face. I’ve also been using this as an eyeshadow topper, which gives a really nice glittery sheen and if applied with the right colour base can really emphasise the natural colour of your eyes.

The other 2 items I managed to grab were a couple of the Lipsticks. First I have the shade I Get So OOC, a Frost formula with stunning hues of brown and gold really looks gorgeous on anyone with olive or darker tanned skin! I have olive skin and when I wear this colour I just feel so confident! Which is kinda strange because usually MAC’s frost formulas are a no go for me as always feel so conscious wearing metallic or shiny lip products. The swatch pictures honestly don’t do this shade much justice but it looks stunning on, especially with quite a simple warm toned taupe eyeshadow.

The second shade is of course Dahhlinggg! Cremesheen formula in a simple pink toned nude that is a true compliment to any everyday make up look. This colour I actually wore New Years Eve this year. I put this on my lips first for a subtle base then threw subtle out the window and had a silver glitter episode! Usually I’ll try put on a Matte if I’m wearing a glittery lip because I feel like it will last longer but the Cremesheen formula seemed to sit tight throughout the whole evening (of the parts which I can remember either way). I’ve included a picture with flash (left) and without (right) so that hopefully on my scratched iPhone camera you can try see the difference in colour.

Okay guys so there’s my mini haul of the MAC Mariah Carey Collection. I love all the products and only wish I’d have been able to get more! I think MAC absolutely smashed it with this collaboration, not only on the product quality itself, but with the marketing and packaging it was a true win! I hope you enjoyed this post, if there is any of this collection still in stock I highly recommend trying to get your hands on some of these products! Thanks for the read,
