The collection features vibrant tropical prints of fruit and flowers and focuses on beautiful bronzed skin and succulent shades for the lips. From the packaging to the color offerings available, everything in the collection literally screams summer. My order finally arrived and today I’ll be sharing with you my collection picks and swatches.

Arriving this month is M·A·C Cosmetics‘ collaboration with Chinese fashion designer Min Liu. According to M·A·C, the collection is Ms. Min’s personal twist on Chinese traditionalism and her modern take on traditional Chinese motifs. As with all of M·A·Cs limited edition collections, the collection features one-of-a-kind packaging and embossing. I was happy to find it in store at the M·A·C South Coast Plaza retail location last week. I was told it would be one of the few in store locations that the collection will be sold, much like the MAC X Guo Pei collection, reviewed here. Today I’ll be sharing my picks from this stunning collection as well as swatches.

The MAC x Mariah Carey Collection launches in store tomorrow and this is one you don’t want to miss! It’s so over the top, but rightfully so. It embodies her recognizable sense of style, glamour, and all that glitters and sparkles. The packaging is to die for! I have been a fan of her music for over 20 years—yes you read that right, 20 years. In grade school, I was jamming to the catchy tune of “Dreamlover. “ In middle school, “Hero” was my favorite ballad along with “One Sweet Day, “ her collaboration with the R&B group Boys II Men. In high school it was all about “Honey. ” In college, I experienced my first relationship heartache. The song “We Belong Together” was on repeat for weeks. Though I’ve since come to terms with it, that song will always have a special place in my heart. Her music resonates with me in so many ways and today I’m excited to bring you my picks and swatches from this stunning collection.
