Style News: MAC releases collaboration collection with Mariah Carey


American music legend Mariah Carey has teamed up again with cosmetics label MAC to release a collection bursting with bling.

The 46-year-old diva released a limited-edition lipstick with the label last year. This year, they will release a full range of make-up including five types of lipstick ($39), five types of lipgloss ($36), two power blushes ($44) and a liquid eyeliner ($40).

One of the highlights is an eyeshadow palette with four classic colours including a silver white shimmer and a deep plum with pearl tones - everything you need to get your peepers dazzling for the holiday season.

There is also a gold shimmer loose power ($60) for more sparkle.

The glitter is not just in the products, the packaging - in gold and silver - also reflects Carey's love for all things shiny.

The collection will be available from Dec 15 at the new MAC flagship store at B2-32 Ion Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn.
