A little less than two weeks ago my boyfriend and I were together for a year. To celebrate this he gifted me the most gorgeous thing ever: the MAC Mariah Carey lipstick in the shade Mcizzle. This MAC Mariah Carey collection is pretty much the prettiest thing I have ever seen so I couldn’t wait to give it a try. Today I’m going to review this gorgeous piece of makeup. If you’re interested in finding out whether or not it’s actually a great product, make sure you continue reading!
First things first: the packaging. Isn’t this every girls dream? To have a lipstick that is completely covered in glitter. I’m not someone who likes everything sparkly but this is just wonderful. It’s such a festive and fabulous looking thing and I love it. For those of you who were wondering: the glitter is sealed in by a plastic coat so it won’t transfer onto everything it touches and it won’t get damaged over time.
Aside from having a glittery packaging, it also has matte golden details instead of the regular silver details. The little ring in between the lid and the bottom part of the packaging is gold, as well as the metal part you see when you take off the lid. I really like the look of that.
The MAC Mariah Carey collection consisted out of 5 different shades of lipstick (I believe). They were sold out incredibly quickly so I’m not even sure if you can still get your hands on it. All colours were pretty natural and some were shimmery, but others were not.
The colour my boyfriend got me is called Mcizzle. This is one of the more natural and wearable colours that doesn’t have any shimmer to it. It has a cremesheen finish which means that it’s a creamy and rich lipstick with a great amount of pigmentation that has a creamy finish and feels very comfortable and soft on the lips.
The colour Mcizzle is quite a light nude colour so I don’t think it’s a colour that will fit everyone. I think that especially very pale people can pull this off as well as people with darker skin. Obviously that’s what I think and that’s not at all based on facts, so if you have a different skintone than I mentioned it can still look absolutely stunning on you!
Because this lipstick has a cremesheen finish it’s very easy to apply. It’s almost like a rich, whipped butter melted into the shape of a lipstick. It glides onto the lips and spreads out very smoothly and evenly.
Pigmentation wise this lipstick is incredible. It’s better than some of the other cremesheen’s I got in my collection and I’m very impressed by that. It completely covers up the natural colour of my lips and transforms them into a pair of very pretty and natural looking lips. I really like it.
Because it’s such a creamy product you might expect it not to be long lasting at all, but to my surprise it’s actually one of the most long lasting lipsticks I own. It is definitely very creamy and comfortable to wear, but it doesn’t move around on your lips. It stays where you applied it and that’s it.
Overall I think this MAC x Mariah Carey lipstick in the shade Mcizzle is absolutely stunning. From the packaging to the texture to the colour, I absolutely adore this lipstick. I personally think that this collection is the best limited edition they ever came out with and if you get the chance to get your hands on one of these lipsticks I highly, highly recommend doing so!
The MAC x Mariah Carey Lipstick in Mcizzle is available online and in stores for €23,-.
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know if you have gotten your hands on anything from this gorgeous limited edition collection!
