When MAC announced the return of one of its most popular formulas, people went wild. Now as the extra dimension skinfinishes have begun a gradual re-release (slowly with Oh Darling! in 2015 and now a slew of shades in 2017), everyone is in a frenzy to get their hands on them once again. I purchased two shades, Superb (repromote) and Glow With It (new), to try out for myself. My thought? Read on below!

The queen diva Mariah Carey collaborated with MAC Cosmetics for the second time in the past year on a collection just as divalicious as she is! If the glitter & gold packaging isn’t enough for you then I’m sure the metallic shimmering shades will put that twinkle in your eye! I was able to pick up both of the collection’s highlighters in the pre-release for Devoted & Obsessed members and I’ve got swatches galore and comparison shots for you below!
Last holiday season, MAC Cosmetics and Mariah Carey previewed a limited edition lipstick with the promise of a much larger collection coming in 2016. Now the time has come for that sparkly / glittery / metallic-y collection and it is the true embodiment of Mariah – very divalicious! Take a peek at the items in the collection below and prepare to spend your coins when this launches!

This past weekend I attended The Makeup Show Dallas at the Hyatt Regency Downtown! I was blessed to be able to attend the press / blogger preview and receive a bangin’ goodie bag full of pro makeup artist James Vincent’s favorite products. If you are interested in seeing what I was gifted (+ what I purchased), keep reading!
I have been waiting MONTHS for The Makeup Show to come to Texas! One of the first things I looked up when I moved to Texas was the beauty conference schedule – no lie! That’s one of the benefits of this new state compared to Georgia which had very few non-industry events. I’m incredibly excited to have the opportunity to attend events like The Makeup Show that are so close to home.
With that being said, I arrived to in Dallas on Friday afternoon to give myself some time to relax before the show started on Saturday morning. I had the chance to be one of the ‘cool kids’ for the day and attend the blogger preview on Saturday morning. That’s the hour and a half where all you have to do is sit and be mesmerized by the presence that is pro MUA and Director of Education for The Makeup Show James Vincent! James has a ton of experience under his belt – apprentice to Kevyn Aucoin, dozens of Fashion Weeks, and the famous Amy Winehouse winged liner just to name a few. He walked us through the new releases at the show like the Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks and Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge range.
Being invited to the press preview means you get the goodie bag of all goodie bags with a ton of James’ favorite backstage must haves in a huge bag that changes as the show’s sponsors change (this year the bag was a black cloth bag from MUFE). I’ll share with you what I received in that bag PLUS the items I purchased myself from the many vendors in attendance. I went into this show not wanting a ton of stuff, but I did grab a handful of items.
This is one of those announcement’s that truly speaks for itself. The world’s most recognized cosmetics brand teaming with one of the hottest African American actresses in the game. The significance of this is unparalleled! I’ll be supporting at release, will you? Keep reading for full collection details.
