Mariah Carey x MAC: All we want for Christmas is this

Glitter, glamour and butterfly motifs: the Mariah x MAC Holiday 2016 collection is everything we dreamed of, and more…

Certain singers typify the yuletide season, from Michael Bublé to Chris Rea to Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues, but the minute you hear the first few bars of Mariah you know it’s time. Apt then, that she’ll be debuting a holiday makeup collection with MAC, but rather than the usual red and green tinselled Christmas offerings, this (mic) drop is pure Mariah, back in the Butterfly days. Think champagne shimmer lipstick, Sweet Sweet Fantasy blusher, Honey hued lipglass and Images of Rapture shadow palettes. This is Mariah’s back catalogue in makeup form, and we’re eternal groupies.

With an emphasis on sheeny nudes, deliciously rich browns and blingy golds, the MAC x Mariah collection isn’t exactly understated, but it’s hugely wearable. There’s even a gold toned Skinfinish embossed with Mariah’s cartoon face from the Heartbreaker video. Niche, and also, fabulous. From the silver glitter packaging to butterfly engraved lipstick bullets and palettes signed in gold by Mariah, I haven’t been this psyched about a limited edition launch is years. Whether you’re a Mariah magpie or not (it is very sparkly), get your hands on a bit of history; makeup lovers will be like bees to a honeypot for quite some time I suspect.
