Arriving this month is M·A·C Cosmetics‘ collaboration with Chinese fashion designer Min Liu. According to M·A·C, the collection is Ms. Min’s personal twist on Chinese traditionalism and her modern take on traditional Chinese motifs. As with all of M·A·C‘s limited edition collections, the collection features one-of-a-kind packaging and embossing. I was happy to find it in store at the M·A·C South Coast Plaza retail location last week. I was told it would be one of the few in store locations that the collection will be sold, much like the MAC X Guo Pei collection, reviewed here. Today I’ll be sharing my picks from this stunning collection as well as swatches.
MAC’s latest Viva Glam Campaign is in collaboration with actress Taraji P. Henson, and includes a new signature lipstick shade along with a matching lipglass. If you are not familiar with the Viva Glam campaign, every cent from the selling price of M·A·C VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. It’s a great cause, and MAC has since raised over 400 million dollars to date! There have been many collaborations with well known celebrities over the years, and I was truly excited about this launch. I am a fan of Taraji’s work–Empire fans, anyone? I truly think the shade in this latest launch is universally flattering and could work for just about everyone.
