Hi everyone! The MAC Mariah Carey arrived in India some time back and I got a few products to review. Everything in this collection is gorgeous and MAC India packaged the products really beautifully too! The frosted silver and gold packaging, with the abundant glitter, embodies Mariah Carey’s style really well. I created a sparkly silver eye for this look, paired with glowing bronzed skin and glossy nude lip! Read on for more details and product images.
MAC x MariahCarey ‘My Mimi’ Skin Finish | Rs 3700
The gorgeous golden Skin Finish highlighter is the first product that catches one’s eye. The pattern on the compact is absolutely beautiful and makes this a special, collectible item from the collection. The shade is a very golden bronze shade, best suited for people with medium/tan/deep complexions. The shimmer isn’t too frosty or glittery and with a suitable fan brush, this gives a beautiful, glowing highlight to the cheekbones. I see this working very well with the Indian skin!
MAC x MariahCarey ‘It’s Everything’ : Eyeshadow x 4
This quad contains a sparkly silver-champagne shade (pigmented, but has fall out), a pearly taupe (very nice for an all over lid wash), a deep frosted burgundy (amazing for smokey eyes!) and a deep blackish grey (slight shimmer, great for smoking out lighter shades). You can do several different looks with this palette from a light frosty silver eye to a glamorous smokey eye.
MAC x MariahCarey ‘Sweet Sweet Fantasy’ Blush | Rs 2150
This is a deep apricot-pink, very beautiful on the Indian skin and in general for medium-deep complexions. The texture is quite fine and it blends easily. The pigmentation is pretty good too (recommend a light hand during application) and the slight hint of shimmer adds a barely-there glow with a lovely warm flush of color! One of my favorite picks from this collection.
MAC x MariahCarey ‘Dahhlinggg’ Lipstick | Rs 1750, ‘Dreamlover’ Lipglass | Rs 1800
I found the lip colors a little too pale for my complexion so I had to use a darker lip liner underneath to make these work. While these are lovely colors for fair complexions, I wouldn’t recommend the lipstick for anyone beyond NC25, unless you don’t mind doing a bit of mixing to darken up the color with the help of other lipsticks/lip liners. The lipglass though can be used as a topping over lipsticks to add a brilliant glossy shine. MAC lipglasses have a slightly sticky texture (which helps them stay a while) and feel very nourishing. Both the lip products have the signature MAC vanilla scent and limited edition sparkly packaging!
