MAC x PATRICKSTARRR
Don't we just love collabs? Well, I do, if they are well thought out and the products are good quality! This post is on the collaboration of Patrick Starrr with MAC Cosmetics. This happened in November 2017 and the collection hit the stores in the second week of December. For those who are unaware, Patrick Starrr is a makeup artist turned beauty influencer/guru who primarily makes videos on YouTube.
I purchased a lipstick and a gloss from this collection that I had my eyes on ever since the promotional photos and videos were out. I bought these from MAC's website and 95% of the collection is still available if you're interested in picking up a product or two. I bought the MamaStarrr Lipstick and MamaStarrr LipGlass.
The collection comprises of three lipsticks with their matching lip glosses and lip liners, a setting powder and two eyeshadow palettes. The setting powder was the first product introduced from the line and it received rave reviews on the internet. It is one of the two products that is currently sold out. The other product that is sold out on the website is the Mahogany Lip Pencil which I skipped purchasing as it was just packaged differently with Patrickstarrr's name on it - something that was mentioned during the promotions. I already have the original Mahogany lip liner. This is the shade that goes with Mamastarrr lipstick and lip gloss for this collection. The packaging is stunning. The beautiful outer white packaging has a holographic design with the name printed in black and it looks very pretty. The lipstick itself comes in a white container and looks very sleek.
Mamastarrr Lipstick - It retails for $17.50 and is the exact same price as other lipsticks on the website. It is a beautiful reddish/warm brown color with a satin finish. It's a great nude shade for medium to dark skin tones. I am a fan of the satin finish of MAC Lipsticks so I am very pleased with my purchase. It is a pigmented lipstick but I don't think it is a unique color by any means. I wanted it because I really liked how the shade looked when Patrickstarrr applied it with the lipliner and lipgloss in his tutorial video. Also, I really wanted to support him so I decided to get the products. It's a nice shade and if you gravitate towards nudes for day to day wear, definitely get your hands on this one.
Mamastarrr LipGlass - This beautiful lipgloss retails for $17. It's a beautiful pink cinnamon shade and it pairs beautifully with the Mamastarrr lipstick. I always wear this lipgloss on top of the lipstick but you can wear it on its own or over a lip liner. It provides a wet/glass-like effect on the lips and looks stunning. I love the quality; it's not sticky at all. I love a good gloss and I think this one is a beautiful nude gloss that can be worn over both regular and liquid lipsticks.
I usually wear the Mahogany Lip Pencil along with the Mamastarrr Lipstick and Lipglass and the combination is really good. The lip liner goes well with the lipstick and gloss.

Overall, it's a nice collection. I haven't really tried anything else from this collab but I like the two products that I purchased in December. They came along with me to Dubai as well as the shipment arrived just a few days before my trip! Hope you enjoyed this post. Until next time, have a good one!
