MAC Cosmetics hits the high notes with Mariah Carey collaboration

Fans of global pop phenomenon Mariah Carey can now treat themselves to a sprinkle of her stardust thanks to the singer’s collaboration with MAC Cosmetics. The MAC Mariah Carey collection features Ms Carey’s trademark butterflies and glitter across a selection of make-up and colour cosmetics just in time for the Christmas party season.

The MAC naming department have had fun here: references are made to the pop diva’s greatest hits such as ‘All I Want’ and ‘Dreamlover’. There’s also a Lipglass named ‘Little Miss Monroe’ for her daughter. The Mariah Carey signature sings out elsewhere with imprints of her favourite butterflies on lipstick bullets and even a stylised design of the singer’s face pressed into a powder.

Our pick of the collection, which centres around a shimmering palette of browns, golds and pinks, includes:

Lipstick in All I Want (a champagne shimmer frost); Bit of Bubbly (a soft pinky nude cremesheen) and Dahhlinggg! (a pinky peach cremesheen).

Lipglass in Little Miss Monroe (true gold shimmer); Dreamlover (dirty pink shimmer) and It’s Just Like Honey (tan shimmer).

Eyeshadow Quads in I’m That Chick You Like, which includes a satin shadow in dirty mocha with gold pearl and It’s Everything, which contains a velvet shadow in muted black with red shimmer.

As well as colour cosmetics, the collection also includes a Liquid Eye Liner; Pro Longwear Lip Pencil; Mascara; Extra Dimension Skin Finish and Loose Powder.

The clever thing about this collection is that the wearer can choose to go all-out glitter-drenched showgirl but the universally flattering nude-based tones work equally well in a more pared-down look.

The MAC Mariah Carey collection will be available from December at select travel retail locations worldwide for a limited time.
