When I heard that two of my favorite brands, M·A·C Cosmetics and alice + olivia, decided to collaborate on a collection of limited-edition makeup this summer, it was like the beauty deities said, “You know, Kristin’s been really good lately. Let’s give her something to really be happy about.” Thank you, makeup and fashion deities. Thank you.
Capturing the sprightly and downtown spirit of fashion’s favorite party girl, the collection is all Stacey Bendet: a positively effervescent collection of rich colors that include new takes on some beloved favorites. Let’s take a look at the magic that is alice + olivia for M·A·C:
Stacey also had some fun with Pigments ($19.50)
Later: A sooty black with transforming purple pearl
If It Sparkles: White with transforming pink pearl
Partylicious: Exactly what it should be: a table top dance-worthy turquoise with silver pearl
Even more fun? Nails! Look for these covet-worthy shades of Nail Lacquer ($12), perfect for your pre-fall manicures (and to rock at all times):
Morning.After: a luxe, creamy turquoise
So Rich, So Pretty: the essence of the a+o party girl, a purple with pearl finish
Military: a personal favorite of mine, it’s a rocker-approved black matte with a silver suede pearl finish
