MAC has always been generous for Holidays and treated the ladies with very special gifts, and Mac’s team did not disappoint us this time either. By the New Year we will be able to enjoy a range of three dazzling new collections. Choosing only one of them would be a sacrilege. Here is an overview of all the cosmetic innovations that MAC prepared for its shoppers before the main winter holidays – the perfect Christmas gift.

MAC Objects of Affection collection – a line of mini kits filled with gilded hues of Lipglass, Pigment and Glitter dressed up in glittered boxes adorned with a cameo medallion.

Dress Your Lips – Giambattista Valli for MAC

www.astairwaytofashion.com
MAC Giambattista Valli Collection, available in summer 2015

MAC announced another five stars collaboration for Summer 2015, together with designer, Giambattista Valli.

I’m very well known for dresses, no? And I thought it was very nice, the idea of dressing your lips,” Valli told Vogue.com. “For a creative person, collaborating can be frustrating because you feel that you’re limited or stuck within someone else’s ideas, but with MAC it was 100 per cent freedom and 100 per cent support just to make my idea become a reality, to pull out my flowers and my sense and my emotion and put it into the colour.”

The new beauty line contains a range of five lipsticks, with shades changing from pink to deep purple, packaged in matching cases and with a matt finish, ready to be out on shelves next summer.

The best thing about makeup is that a lipstick can really change your look. If you never wear color on your lips and then one day you wear red, everyone just goes ‘wow!’” Valli stated. “I made these for a woman with personality, a woman who lives her life and isn’t afraid to wear color and isn’t afraid to kiss!

MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection

How freaking incredible is this? MAC did it again, after the Simpsons collection, another crazy capsule collection is about to be launched, just in time for Halloween – MAC’s favourite holiday – inspired by the fantasy looks of the cult film ‘The Rocky Horror Picture‘ celebrating its 40th anniversary. The collection includes 21 items – dramatic lashes and liners, four shades of lipstick, eyeshadows, mascara, glitter, all in a black packaging featuring bright red lips.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult classic about transformation, diversity, individuality and fantasy; all elements that are a part of MAC Cosmetics’ DNA ” – said James Gager, Mac Cosmetics Creative Director.

Brooke Shields and MAC – A New Five Stars Makeup Line

Brooke Shields Collaborates With MAC Cosmetics

Model and actress Brooke Shields is the latest icon to collaborate with MAC cosmetics, for a new collection that according to WWD will have two lines and a total of 15 products, ready to make their debut in October, with prices range between $ 17.00 and $ 85.00.

One [ line ] was this really fresh-faced, cleaner, daytime look and the other was much more vampy with a big focus on the eyes, and I’m both of these things,” Brooke says. “I like the natural part of myself, and I like the sexier side, too. James asked me what I liked best, and I just could not make up my mind between these two very diverse looks. So I thought, ‘Maybe they’ll like one better, or say this is the one for the market.’ It was like trying to pick a wedding dress.” Instead James Gager, MAC’s senior vice president and creative director, loved both of the concepts – “ We got into this conversation, and every woman we know, even if they have a predominant style, definitely has two sidesSo we decided to highlight the richness of both of those ”, declared Shields.

The grey packaging with orange accents was inspired by Brooke Shields’ West Village apartment. The main piece of the collection is a 16-shade eye-shadow palette, the first time ever for the brand to create such a large celebrity palette, aside a Veluxe Brow Liner ( $20 ), a brow set with clear gel ( $17 ), Two Veluxe Pearl Fusion Shadows ( $44 each ), a Cremeblend Blush Duo ( $31 ), two shades of lipstick ( $22 each ), a bronzer ( $27.50 ), two Lipglosses ( $22 each ), two shades of nail polish ( each $17 ), and Optimum Black Opulash mascara ( $17 ).

About her shooting for the in-store visual ad with photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the former model says : “ I’ve done shoots for shows I’ve done in the past, but shooting this beauty look was like being back in the olden days. It was fabulous. It was the first time in nearly 50 years of modeling where I’d ever been on a photo shoot where they’d hired a ballet dancer. He was a friend of Inez and Vinoodh — and he danced behind them and acted out what I should do. I almost died [laughing.] He was from the German ballet, and like 8-feet tall, just doin’ it. It was absolutely hysterical.

Over the weekend in New York, on May 11th, on the occasion of Mother’s Day, there was held a festival for the charity project initiated by Born Free Africa, joined by Vogue magazine, Diane Von Furstenberg, MAC and the online store Shopbob. They created a capsule collection of clothing and accessories, that you can see in one of my previous posts, whose profit will go 100% to the fight against HIV transmission from mother to child. Donna Karan, Anna Wintour, Carolina Herrera, Claire Danes, supermodels Liya Kebede and Doutzen Kroes are some of the celebs that took part at the open-air festival.

Welcome To Springfield – The Simpsons and MAC Collaboration for Fall 2014

www.astairwaytofashion.com
The Simpsons and MAC collaboration for Fall 2014

Before we could even fully enjoy the results of MAC‘s collaboration with the New York designer, Proenza Schouler, the company announced the forming of a new team – MAC and “The Simpsons”. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the world wide famous show MAC will create a special, limited edition collection, said to be due in September, inspired by Marge Simpson – a different kind of beauty icon, with her blue hair. Despite the fact that, in the cartoon series, non of the main characters wear make-up, MAC takes the challenge – no word on the product offerings yet, but probably a lot based on canary yellow and blue shades. It was about time a cosmetics company honoured this show with a collection, and just in time for Halloween!

Ready For The Carousel? The New MAC Collection – Playland – Is Almost Here

MAC brings a glimpse of our childhood back – inoculating the fact that playing with colours  today, as grownups, is as fun and creative as we used to do as kids – MAC Playland‘s “toys” are lipsticks and lip glosses in candy colours, eyeliners, universal remedies for lips and cheeks, coloured bright orange and blue shades for the eyelids. The names attributed to each and one of them speak for themselves : “Head in the Clouds“, “Young at Heart“, “A Lot of Laughter” , “Carousel”  – the collection will be available starting early May 2014.

MAC imagined six new colours of lipstick – fuchsia and coral, gentle and fluorescent pink, radiant red and even golden-yellow – and five new shades of lip gloss – pink and purple , peach and coral, as well as gold. For moisturized lips and a long-lasting effect they are just perfect.

One of the most popular MAC product is the colored pigments, now in four new shades. The pigment is a versatile product with a crumbly structure , which can be mixed with any cream or blush, lipstick or nail polish, but are most often used as a shade. MAC created four new shades of highly concentrated pigments: blue , olive, gold and orange.

Another product that we’ve come to love is an universal MAC product for lips and cheeks. It has a creamy and light texture that allows to be applied with the fingers and the vitamin E that its formula contains, nourishes and moisturizes the skin.
