When the trailer for Disney’s Maleficent made its way onto the internet, my first thought was, “Squee! Wings!” My next thought was a faster-then-the-speed-of-light repetition of “cheekbones, lipstick, cheekbones, lipstick…” Judging by MAC’s latest silver screen collaboration, the beauty brand must have that the same reaction.
Mark your calendar for the up-n-coming limited-edition release of MAC’s Malificent cosmetics line. Inspired by Angelina Jolie’s turn as Sleeping Beauty’s wickedly attractive villain, the collection will feature all of the lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, nail lacquers, and powders necessary to making evil look so darned good. The collection will only be available in stores May 15th through June 26th, but you can snap yours up early by logging in to the May 8th online release at www.maccosmetics.com.
All you beach babies pining for summer casual style can breath a sigh of relief; the long-awaited MAC Proenza Schouler cosmetics collection is finally here.
We’ll admit the idea is unusual in its surf-infused inspiration, as makeup doesn’t typically translate to a frolic in the sea—but this pairing is a sure-fire way to nail sand-and-sea beauty. Breaking from their signature black-and-white palette, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have created a very pretty collection of neutral/pink lipsticks, liners, nail polish and ombré blushes, peppered with a few choice nighttime elements like an orange-red lipstick called Mangrove, an electric peony lipstick called Dynamo, and a bloom-inspired red-pink nail lacquer called Bougainvillea. There’s even a collection of brushes with holographic tie-dyed handles to match the makeups whimsical packaging to get you in the mood. The limited-edition collection is set to be priced from $18-$39 and is poised to appear briefly on store shelves from April 24th through May 22. Set your calendars folks, the MAC + Proenza Schouler collection is promising to be makeup’s must-have answer to the song of summer.
Attention: Alber Elbaz isn’t done being adorable.
After his recent win for the Geoffrey Beene Fashion Impact Award — and oh, so sweet acceptance — the beloved designer is once again upping his *squee* factor with an animated announcement of a new collaboration: a makeup line.
Pairing with cosmetics titan Lancôme, Elbaz’s makeup collection is set to hit shelves on June 15th of this year, and — if we’re to believe the cartoon ladies in the film short announcement — just might include an array of electric hued eyeshadows. And if that’s not enough to woo you, surely the tiny, winking Elbez cartoon at the end will do the trick.
Lancôme president had this to say of the iconic designer, ”His sense of luxury, his vision of femininity, and that hint of audacity resonate perfectly with the new values of the Maison Lancôme.” But don’t take his word for it — check out the animated announcement here.read more
