I grew up listening to Mariah Carey and I've always been such a big fan of her songs and of course her voice.
No, really. I'm a big fan.
It's just so convenient that I happen to love MAC cosmetics so when I heard this collection was going to come out, I had to get my hands on it even though I honestly didn't need anymore makeup.
Even the boxes were fab.

I won't do a whole make-up review of this collection since there are thousands out there and plus, even if you wanted these after reading this, I don't even think they're available anymore. If I'm wrong then I totally recommend that you get it because this collection is amazing and totally practical because the colors aren't too OUT THERE like the crazy black lipsticks Rihanna had a while back.
Not too clear but I have to say that the body glitter is my favorite because since it's a loose powder, you can even use it as a highlighter on your face. The glitter isn't overpowering and actually fairly sheer. It lasts me throughout the whole day but I'm not sure how it would hold on if I were sweating throughout the day. I love that it comes with a puff! I always feel so glamorous whenever I use make up puffs.
For the lipsticks, I chose DAHHLINGGG and MCIZZLE (gosh, I love these names). I didn't want to get too adventurous with the darker shades so I stuck with these nude shades. I honestly haven't tried these yet because they're too beautiful to use.
For the glosses, I chose RAINBOW INTERLUDE and DREAMLOVER which are named after her songs. I felt like these two would correlate well with the lipsticks I purchased. I had a chance to try these both out and they are pretty sheer but you gotta love the glitter!
I really wanted to get SWEET SWEET FANTASY for my blush choice because it's my favorite song but it was a bit too orange for me so I got YOU'VE GOT ME FEELING instead. Honestly, nothing too special with this color but I like how it's a light shade so you can keep layering until you get the shade that you want. I wish there were some shimmer in this but I can understand why they chose matte with everything else in this collection being glitter galore.
I love the items that I chose and I wish I could've gotten the whole set but since this set conveniently came out during the holiday season, I'm already broke from Christmas shopping. :(

Majority of the collection is sold out but I believe there's a way to be wait listed? I don't know. I'm a terrible beauty blogger.
But how great it is to be back and blogging again! I really would love to make more time for this blog especially for the upcoming new year. For my readers who are still with me, I love you all! I still have people e-mailing me and encouraging me to keep writing and those e-mails are everything! So, thank you <333 appy="" everyone="" holidays="" nbsp="" p="">
