So Rihanna's MAC collection finally hit Dubai this week. I headed to the store in the early hours of the first day, but most of the lipsticks and lashes were already sold out :(  I'm guessing that's due to them allowing people to reserve products before they come out. I had seen swatches of the Riri Hearts MAC Diamond Cream Color Base online and really wanted that (along with some of the lipsticks) so I was really glad it was still in stock!

Diamonds Color Cream Base is a 'golden shimmer cream' that looks AMAZING on my NC42-44 skin tone. I think it would look great on anyone with a slightly darker or warmer skin tone. 

I've worn it over my foundation as a last touch of highlighter (God, I love that 'glow'!) on my cheekbones, inner eye and cupid's bow. I also used it on a friend and it looked gorgeous! It's easily buildable, so you can go as subtle-glow-from-within to as RuPaul's-Drag-Race as you like!

One thing I did notice is that it might bring out pores and creases. So just make sure you do enough skin prep or use a smoothing primer before you use it. It's worth the extra effort. 

As for the packaging, I think the rose gold is gorgeous, but the plastic casing seems a bit dinkier than MAC's usual plastic. I guess that is due to the metallic effect. It's still pretty though!
