Instagram has been buzzing for the last few months. Diamonte Sparkles and Pretty Butterflies, tormenting beautiful images of the stunning collaboration featuring The Elusive Chanteuse and “Songbird Supreme” aka Mariah Carey!  Mariah brings her impeccable glamour to an iconic makeup collection. Her signature look has always been soft, neutral and GLOW BABY GLOW!

 

The range arrived Internationally in time for the holiday season but you can still catch it and bag some of the fabulous pieces for yourself before it totally sells out.   I would really recommend getting at least one item per MAC collaboration release, they’re just too cute not to! Also, you can turn the cases into great decorative features for your beauty boudoir when they’re finished.

We managed to dash out last week to The Palms Mall (Lekki/Oniru) to swatch and caress our way through the collection.   I’d heard some blogges complain that the colours were too light for Women of Colour but we tested them out ourselves and the powder pigments popped!  There were some lipsticks that looked a little bit washed out, but to be honest, in every collection, some shades will suit you and others wont. There’s an endless range of skin tones to cater for so nothing is going to suit everyone.

Check out the pics below. Did you pick up any of the collection for your own stash? Let us know what you think!
