MAC x Mariah Carey Collection

MAC Dahhlinggg Lipstick and Rainbow Interlude Gloss from MAC x Mariah Carey Collection

Can we just... take a minute to appreciate the beauty that is the Christmas MAC x Mariah Carey collection. SO PRETTY! I literally did a little squeal when I saw that the postman had been, and then an even louder one when I opened it. GLITTER EVERYWHERE :) :) :) I usually dont buy too much from limited edition collections (mainly because I worry I will fall in love with something and then I'll be left heartbroken) and I can't say I've ever been a huge fan of Mariah Carey (although I am partial to singing like her in the shower) but when I saw this collection was being released it was just too tempting!

I could have bought everything in the collection but I limited myself to just two pretties - one of the lipsticks in the shade Dahhlinggg and one of the lip glosses in Rainbow Interlude. The Extra Dimension highlight powder looked incredible but I thought would be too dark for me, so I wasn't too worried about not having one of those. (Actually my boyfriend was looking over my shoulder when I was looking at the highlighter and said - "that looks tasty" He thought it was a cake.)

Dahhlinggg is a beautiful pale peachy-pink shade in a Cremesheen formula. It comes out much lighter than it looks in the tube. I like a pale lip but I had to put a lip liner over the top just to bring it down a little - I used Boldly Bare by MAC and it didn't change the tone of the lipstick. It truly is a beautiful shade, but it did pain me to have to use it and destroy the perfectness of it ha!

The lip gloss Rainbow Interlude is a very pale pink shade with soft silver shimmer particles. I don't usually go for glitter lip glosses but I have tried a few recently and actually have been really surprised how pretty they can look. This does not look too shimmery on the lips and it is perfect paired over the top of the lipstick. It wasn't too tacky so it was very comfortable to wear and it's not the sort of formula that your hair is going to get stuck in. I really loved the two together:

Overall I am so happy I bought these two, I'm not ashamed to say it's largely due to the packaging! I could literally snap pictures of these all day they're so pretty! Did you buy anything from the MAC x Mariah Carey collection?
