Couture Fashion Designer Giambattista Valli brings his effortless elegance and celebration of the female form to a collection of timeless lipsticks.  MAC Cosmetics and the French fashion designer have collaborated and created five new matte shades and one glossy companion.  All of the colors were inspired by fabric swatches in the Giambattista Valli fashion vault.

To emphasize the glamour and freshness of the lipsticks, MAC is doing something completely out of the box and using a metallic color packaging for each.  The lipsticks are $17.50 each.

MAC Cosmetics Marge Simpson Limited Edition Collection

If you ever wondered what Marge Simpson‘s beauty bag looked like then this new MAC Cosmetics collection is perfect for you. MAC Cosmetics is celebrating The Simpsons 25th anniversary by creating a 10 item collection in honor of the famous cartoon mom. The collection is a playful line that gives some fun colorful ideas to add into your kit. The 10 items include: two 4 piece eyeshadow palettes, blush, lipglass and false lashes. The colors are in shades of pink, purple, black and of course blue like her famous beehive hair with names like: Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy, Nacho Cheese Explosion and That Trillion Dollar Look. The packaging alone is worth showcasing the items in your beauty bag.

While you may not want to have a complete Marge makeover, one suggestion would be to add one of the fun colors to your look for a pop of fun color. As well as using a Marge Simpson lipglass shade on top of your neutral lip pencil to create a new color.

Those that attended Comic-Con in San Diego this past were the first to preview the makeup line before it hits the stores. The lines outside the MAC store were wrapped around the block, proving that this iconic character may not be Marilyn Monroe, or Barbie, but she has a huge following all her own. The attendees also were able to get Marge makeovers and see the Marge models, come to life as their favorite animated character.

The Marge Simpson makeup collection is available online on and in stores on September 4. It is a limited edition collection and will sell out fast both online and in stores.

Creating Drag: MAC Makeup Class

I had the pleasure of being able to attend a MAC Cosmetics pro makeup class, “Creating Drag”.  I was so excited to meet the instructor Romero Jennings as he has been a MAC Pro for many years and he has mastered the art of beauty makeup along with editorial makeup you find in Hapers Bazaar, Vogue and other major publications.  I knew that the class was going to be a great lesson in creating contour and highlights in a face not to mention some amazing glamour.  However, I learned more in those 2 hours than I expected, added to my bag of tricks and had a blast.  The transformation was amazing and I thought that I would share some photos so that everyone can see the before and after.

MAC Cosmetics: New Heavenly Creature Limited Edition Collection

July marks a new MAC Cosmetics Color Collection: Heavenly Creature Colour.  On the surface these colors look marbleized, however, on the skin they blend in for a stunning “celestial” effect.

As with any beginning to makeup application it starts with the skin, and the Heavenly Creature Collection has a Creature Skincare to start with. The trio features a Super Duo Charged Water Technology with a eye cream, moisture gel, and a water cleanser. The limited edition brings back an old favorite with the Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator.

The Mineralize Skinfinish has a high-frost metallic finish in four gorgeous shades: Light Year, Center of The Universe, Star Wonder and Earthshine. It is the perfect product to add color and cheek highlights or over all color to the face like a bronzer.  Perfect for a lightweight summer option.

The Mineralize Eye Shadows have baked minerals refined into a powder that is light yet, still has the amazing signature MAC color pigments that can be applied in light layers to get the color effect you are looking for. Finish off your eyes with False Lashes mascara.  This mascara’s feature is to give you the volume and curl of a false eyelash without actually using false eyelashes. The formula is matched by its unique double-lush brush.

The five new lipsticks add color and texture to the lips that stand out on the runway or on the streets. Add the Cremesheen Glass over the lipstick to amplify the color or use alone. The Glass is a non-sticky, creamy lipgloss that has a fantastic sheen.

Hit MAC online or play in your MAC Cosmetics store as theses colors will be gone soon.
