The MAC X @OOPS_OHEMMA Influencer Kit ($69, The Bay) is a limited-edition, Canada-only, The Bay exclusive kit featuring products curated by a Canadian influencer, @Oops_OhEmma. These kits are typically (from what I’ve seen anyway) available only at Canada’s The Bay (online and in-store) and not Sephora or its own standalone store with very limited numbers are available. They are typically released in the Spring and Fall and it’s worth following the official MAC instagram account which is how I usually find out about these sets rather than guessing launch dates.

In case you didn’t know, MAC has its roots in Canada, born in Toronto before becoming part of the Estée Lauder family. For MAC to continue celebrating Canadian talents / creatives is a huge brand differentiator for me and you can’t beat the fact this set is a total bargain to boot!
I don’t follow beauty launches as frequently but every once in a while, these influencer kits / limited edition sets will come on my radar. I’ve purchased a set before featuring products curated by a Vancouver-based influencer earlier this year which I’ve reviewed: MAC x @ALLANARAMAA Influencer Kit. The fixed price for these sets ($69, a $4 increase compared to the kits launched last year), makes this set well-worth the price.
Included in this kit are 6 full-sized products and the makeup bag (which I didn’t count as part of the six) making each product costing just a little over $11. A total bargain especially if you’re a fan of the colours / formula and product included.
Here are the products included in the MAC X @OOPS_OHEMMA Influencer Kit set:
- 2x Powder Kiss Lipsticks in Devoted To Chili & Mull It Over ($26 each, available here)
- 2x Eye Shadows in Swiss Chocolate & Expensive Pink ($24 each, available here)
- Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara 1 Technakohl ($31, available here)
- Technakohl Eye Liner — Brownborder 1 MAC ($24, available here)
- MAC Canadian Original Makeup Bag – a clear zip-locked makeup bag (perfect for travelling)
I’m a huge fan of the MAC eyeshadow and lipstick formula so to get 4 full-sized items here is a total bargain! The two eyeshadow colours are shades I’ve used and liked before and while the lipstick colours are newer to me, they look sufficiently wearable for everyday and just a little bit different than the colours I’d normally buy. I didn’t include the makeup bag here as it is a simple clear makeup pouch, great to store your to-go / office makeup (if we were coming back to the office ever!)
The mascara and eyeliner formula are newer to me – I’ve never really been into these formula before as I have a few favourites that I use more frequently but I don’t mind giving them a try.
I wished these sets were available at MAC as it would be awesome for the purchase to go towards renewing my MAC Lover status (I’ve only spent $0 this year which makes hitting the $150 min to be eligible for next year’s birthday gift kind of unlikely!) It would also be great if the launch of these sets can be more widely available – it has been only by chance and following the odd influencer that I’ve discovered these sets exist in the first place!
Now over to you! What do you think of MAC’s influencer collaboration and do you like the format / type of products curated in this kit? What would you pick differently if you could?
