There are few things I love more than a good collaboration between a designer and a beauty company. I think it’s a very egalitarian way to bring high fashion to the masses where it really counts. Because, let’s face it: a masstige shirt or dress from a top designer is one thing, but a good quality makeup item makes a real statement.
And as a lover of all things lipstick, I’m clearly a little biased with this collection.
M∙A∙C Cosmetics has done it again, partnering with designer Giambattista Valli for a collection of lip products that are as lovely as they are high quality. After all, this is M∙A∙C’s legendary formula that’s never drying, always beautifully pigmented, and kind to your mouth. When I interviewed Emily McCombs of xoJane , she admitted to being a “M∙A∙C reds girl,” and I have to say it’s with good reason. It doesn’t matter what the hue is, their products quite simply deliver without fail.
The capsule collection, out on shelves now in North America, will most likely sell out pretty quickly, so get your hands on your favorite lippie below before they’re gone. There’s a pretty luxe gloss with crystal iridescence that I think will be gorgeous for summer (think smoky eye and a nude lip with shimmer,) and the range of colors goes from petal pink all the way to a deep cherry red with blue undertone (it looks a little brown in the photo, but it’s actually a rich black cherry.)
It’s time for a little lip love, ladies. Go get ’em! M∙A∙C it up!
