Rihanna’s final collection with M·A·C features the return of the insanely popular RiRi Woo Lipstick, along with updated staples from the previous collections. Of the three Rihanna Collections (RiRi ♥ M·A·C Summer Collection and RiRi Hearts M·A·C for Fall) this one is definitely my favorite.

The packaging for RiRi ♥ M·A·C for Holiday is gorgeous; white-pearl casing with Rihanna’s signature rose-gold detailing. It’s very luxe looking, as you’d expect from a holiday collection. Love!

Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow in Phresh Out, $44

I had the opportunity to preview the RiRi ♥ M·A·C Collection and there is so much goodness here! I received the Veluxe Eyeshadow in Phresh Out, which is the warmer of the two palettes. The colors include soft champagne, peach gold with pearl, blackened plum, pearlescent pink and violet mauve. Gorgeous! Although this is a pearlized finish, it’s not too much sparkle–you can wear this from day-to-night. Add the Superslick Eyeliner, which has a shimmer finish (beautiful), and you’ve got an easy holiday eye look.

Pictured above with the Veluxe Eyeshadow Palette is the Double-ended Brush, on one side the 217 Blender, on the other, the 239 Shader. Both are makeup brushes that I use every day, so this dual-ended brush is a fantastic idea. I would definitely recommend picking it up–for the convenience factor alone. The quality of the double-ended brush is every bit as good as the individual brushes. The Bronzing Powder in this collection is my favorite, as compared to the previous collection. I like that there’s a bit of gold shimmer in it and I didn’t find that it leaves your skin looking dull or ashy.



I also tried the Lipstick in Pleasure Bomb and RiRi Woo, which, despite my lack of confidence in wearing a red lipstick, is a great color, especially if you wear more cool tones. Pleasure Bomb is a cool matte fuschia shade. Both lipsticks that I tried were very pigmented and gave excellent color payoff. The RiRi Woo Nail Lacquer is also a cool-toned polish that would be beautiful for the holidays. Like the lipstick, the RiRi Woo Nail Lacquer has amazing color-payoff. The red is so rich that you could almost get by with one coat of polish. This is a good year-round color that you don’t want to miss.

The RiRi ♥ M·A·C for Holiday Collection is available now at and Like the previous collections, it will sell out fast, so I wouldn’t wait if there are must-haves on your list!
