We Tried The MAC x Patrick Starrr Holiday Collection — & Here's What We Think

Welcome to Unfiltered, where we give our honest, no-B.S. reviews of the most buzzed-about beauty products, brands, and services on the market right now.
Long gone are the days when bloggers were relegated to Instagram and YouTube. Now, they're the loudest voices influencing makeup brands, oftentimes collaborating with companies on curated collections. Among the most sought-out content creators is YouTube royalty Patrick Starrr, who was tapped by MAC Cosmetics last year to release not just one collection, but five throughout 2018.
After giving us tropical packaging and jet-setter kits, Starrr and MAC have reached their fifth and final collection. The release is a red, sparkly holiday lineup titled "Patrick Starrr Slay Ride" that includes an array of makeup goodies from glitter lip gloss to a setting powder.
Being that it's the last to come from the union of the mega-influencer and MAC cosmetics, we wanted to give it a try. So, we asked a handful of R29 staffers to test out the products from Starrr's newest holiday release and share their unfiltered opinions. Warning: Just like all the other MAC holiday collections, this one is already selling out. So, you might want to add it to your holiday shopping list now and figure out who to gift it to later — or, better yet, keep it for yourself.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
