mtqyotuzmju5mjk4otg5nzy5mariahcarey_mac

Mariah Carey, «songbird supreme», has once again teamed up with M·A·C Cosmetics for a second holiday-themed makeup collection. The singer has dazzled us with her songs and timeless contributions to music for decades and now brings her extraordinary glamour for the second time to an iconic makeup collection with M·A·C that’s all you’ll ever want. After a successful 2015 partnership, Carey and M·A·C are ready for round two and we are, too.

mtqyotuzmjk3mtq4mzg5mdy1

Needless to say, there is plenty of glitter incorporated into the collection itself, which includes many beautiful sparkeling products that I can absolutely recommend for the festive season. I am anyway a «smokey eyes – nude lips» type of girl and Mariah Carey x M·A·C offers everything I adore.
