First Look: Carine Roitfeld x MAC Has Arrived, And It’s Everything You Would Expect

Hot on the heels of our sneak peek at this fall’s NARS x Andy Warhol collection comes the release of another brilliant collab: consider it prime time to get excited about Carine Roitfeld’s highly anticipated line for MAC, out September 6. The former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, who also happens to be be debuting her new magazine, CR Fashion Book, exactly a week after the MAC release, has curated a series of tempting offerings right in line with her own beauty ideology — heavy on the black shadow, framed by thick brows and perfect skin, Carine evangelizes a look that’s messy, a little bit gritty, and in her own words, “tired sexy.”

This collection contains everything you might need, from black liners, false lashes, and mascara to a foundation and two Full Face Kits, to channel Carine every day. These essentials are très chic Parisienne, but the writer doesn’t spare injecting a bit of her eccentric persona into the mix as well, with tiny gold star-shaped stickers for face and body and sleek matte black packaging adorned with her initials in script. Will you buy it? Are you as dingue de Carine and her smeared shadow as I am, or are you more of an impeccably-groomed Anna Wintour type? [Fashionista, image via Vampy Varnish]
