But really… is there anyone more glamorous than famed YouTube Influencer Patrick Starrr? If you said no you haven’t seen him or his YouTube channel and that needs to change. I’ll wait…. Now that you get it you’re absolutely ready to buy all things Patrick because he’s teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to launch the first collection of many – MAC x Patrick Starrr Holiday 2017!

All of these products are limited edition due to packaging, however some shades are in the permanent line.
I was sent Patrick Starrr Goalgetter Eyeshadow x 4, Mamastarrr Lipstick and the Set Powder for review consideration so those are the only items that will be reviewed below.
Patrick Starrr Goalgetter Eyeshadow x 4 // This quad contains four eyeshadow shades in Amber Lights (peachy brown with shimmer, frost), Soft Brown (soft golden peachy brown, matte), Swiss Chocolate (muted reddish brown, matte), I’m Into It (dark red brown, matte). The only shade in the palette that isn’t permanent is I’m Into It.
So. If you know me you know I complain about the darker MAC matte shades quite a bit. Especially Carbon. Because of my past with darker matte shades from MAC I didn’t start out my eye look with the highest hopes (which you wouldn’t even have guessed because for my eye look I used I’m Into It the most of any other shade in the palette). I am so impressed with the pigment and performance of this shade that I can’t even tell you. I used a. MAC 239 to pack the color onto the lid and had no issues with patchiness or blending. The other three permanent shades performed well also, but those three always have for me.
I personally love Goalgetter. The four shades work well together and they all performed well over primer. I think that because there are three shades in here that are permanent (and also very popular so you may already have them) it’s going to put a lot of people off. However if you don’t have the shades and/or want to support Patrick this quad definitely gets high marks from me. I plan on purchasing the other quad from this line, even though three of the shades are permanent in that one also. I’m a fan like that and you know I love me some neutrals. 😉
Mamastarrr Lipstick // Mamastarrr Lipstick is described as a reddish brown shade with a satin finish. I love this lipstick. It’s creamy, it’s comfortable, it’s pigmented, it’s opaque. Wear time is a few hours for me but that’s the same of any satin finish lipstick from MAC. Definitely one to own.
Patrick’s Powder Set Powder // Overall this powder set my makeup nicely when I used a light dusting all over however it didn’t mattify me as much as I like all day long (currently Too Faced Peach Perfect does that for me). I like that the product doesn’t come flying out of the sifter area but it did take me some work to get enough out to “bake” with. I used the Urban Decay All Nighter Concealer and this powder made it turn a bit orange under my eyes (but no where else?) so I don’t think it would be something I’d bake with again (I always use full coverage, thick concealers so it’s unlikely this powder will ever work for me while I bake). While this powder did not work out for me I think that someone who favors a less matte, full coverage finish would enjoy it.
Below I have the items above swatched dry, on my bare arm (no primer). I also had two of the Lip Pencils from a previous PR mailing so I included them. They’re not in the limited edition packaging but I’m sure they swatch just the same. 😉

Because I figured everyone would be going for the Amber Lights all over and I’m Into It in the outer V I swapped them and put I’m Into It all over the lid and Amber Lights at the inner corner. Because I’m a rebel like that.
