  • Red lipstick aficionado Rihanna is jumping in the create-your-own-lipstick game for MAC, debuting a dark red color called RiRi Woo on May 3. Obviously the name is a twist on MAC’s famous red Ruby Woo lippy. [Telegraph UK]
  • Also, John Mayer is supposedly hitting on Rihanna after breaking up with her BFF Katy Perry. Figures. Those two deserve each other. [Perez Hilton]
  • Vogue editor Andre Leon Talley penned a touching personal essay about unconditional love. [Refinery 29]
  • Madonna got blasted by the government of Malawi — where she adopted her son, David Banda —  for demanding “VIP treatment” during her recent trip there. It would seem she was none too pleased to be stopped and frisked by airport security like a normal person. [Yahoo]
  • Rumors are circulating that Miranda Kerr’s contract won’t be getting renewed by Victoria’s Secret, although VS’s CMO issued a statement to the contrary. [US Weekly] Keep reading »

  • Well, that’s one way to get fired: Phivos Lampros Istavrioglou (what a name), the head of international relations at French fashion brand Moncler, has been accused of one major art heist. He was arrested at JFK airport for the theft of ‘Cartel Des Don Juan Tenorio 1949,’ a $150,000 Salvador Dali painting (shown), from an Upper East Side art gallery last year. [Business Insider]
  • Race relations are always a popular topic in fashion, thanks in part to the industry’s reputation for being maybe just the slightest bit obtuse. At New York Fashion Week this season, critics noticed that there was less racial diversity than ever. Jezebel crunched the numbers, and here’s what they found… [Jezebel]
  • Rihanna has another collaboration to add to her roster, and it isn’t musical this time. Just a few days after her design collab with British brand River Island went down the runway, the controversial singer has announced plans to partner with MAC Cosmetics. Like, really partner — RiRi has signed on to have a hand in four distinct color lines set to launch throughout this year. I guess that’s what you get for wearing Ruby Woo almost every time you’re photographed! [Refinery29]
  • You’ll recall that John Galliano made waves in his Hasidic get-up during New York Fashion Week. Writers at Conan got in touch with the disgraced designer’s brother Joe, who actually does wear Jewish hats. Like, real Jewish hats, trimmed with bagels, dreidels, aaaaaand a circumcised banana. Yeah. Watch it! [The Cut]

Once upon a time, I found myself in Las Vegas with no concealer in my makeup bag. I can say with absolutely certainty that Las Vegas is the worst place in the world to go without concealer, what with the lack of sleep, polluted air, fluorescent lighting, and the small but real chance of meeting Celine Dion and taking a photo with her that you’ll obviously need to have printed on a 5×7 foot canvas to hang over your mantle for all eternity. I couldn’t risk looking less than my best for that momentous occasion, so I popped into Nordstrom, headed to the MAC counter and asked for a recommendation. The MAC ladies plopped me down in a chair, blended a bit of Prep + Prime Highlighter in “Radiant Rose” under my eyes, and handed me a mirror. “Damn,” I said, “I think I’m ready for my photo with Celine.”

I may not have met Celine on that trip (I’ve got a good feeling about next year), but I did find a new staple for my makeup bag. Read on for details! Keep reading »

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.” Keep reading »

The iPad Mini Is Too Cute Not To Want

The iPad mini. Forever, it’s been this wacky rumor. Heck, leave it to Apple to come up with absolutely everything, eh? They already havethe perfect phone that practically everyone in the world owns, and the perfect super functional cool-looking iPad tablet that so totally OWNS every other tablet. Naturally, it’s time to add another gem to their Apple powerhouse arsenal.

Well now the iPad mini has unofficially been confirmed for a September debut (along with an iPhone 5!) and techies everywhere are dreaming up what the device will look like.

Let’s be real: It looks cute. It’s like the iPad’s baby sister. They could go on dates together! I foresee lots of cutesie quality time at a cozy little coffee shop where the two devices could sip mocha lattes (well, stand next to them, anyway) and trade pictures of their besties and music via iCloud.

But the question is: Would you buy one? My answer: Not necessarily. Read more…

Carine Roitfeld is one of the most recognizable names in the fashion industry, but she doesn’t have the same notoriety here in America as she does overseas, where the former Vogue Paris mogul is an icon with equal leverage to that other famous editrix, Anna Wintour. The felinic fashionista is also responsible for somewhat of a dynasty, what with daughter Julia succeeding in her well-heeled footsteps. Carine recently announced the September debut of her long-awaited New York-based magazine, CR Fashion Book, so it’s safe to say that in almost no time at all, the Frenchwoman is poised to become an American presence to be reckoned with.

There are beautiful smells like vanilla, lavender, jasmine, and rose, and then there is the most beautiful smell of all: the scent of a freshly purchased MacBook Pro. Now, thanks to a collaboration between a group of artists and the scent scientists at Air Aroma, that intoxicating Apple product smell has been recreated and bottled as a perfume. Here’s the description from Air Aroma’s blog: “The scent encompasses the smell of the plastic wrap covering the box, printed ink on the cardboard, the smell of paper and plastic components within the box and of course the aluminum laptop.” The perfume will be showcased as part of an art exhibit in Melbourne, Australia, but if it ever becomes available for purchase, I’m sure there would be a line around the block to buy it. Plus, they could come out with a slightly different scent every year that rendered the previous scent irrelevant. Genius! [Gothamist]

MAC x Marilyn Monroe, Coming Next Fall

I don’t know which surprises me more: the fact that MAC has chosen to release a Marilyn Monroe collection, or the fact that they haven’t already done it. God bless Marilyn, because her posthumous existence has been practically slaughtered by a never-ending parade of wannabes. That’s not to say that I don’t like the idea of Monroe-inspired makeup, because I do, but her name and likeness is trampled upon on a pretty much daily basis and it’s getting tired. The worst perpetrators are celebrities — particularly one Lindsay Lohan — who just won’t let the poor girl rest, and show no signs of ever doing so. Keep reading »

M.A.C. Teaches How to Get Fuller Lips Fast


This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I’m loving it.

It’s a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town — and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer. Love it!

My favorite secret is the one about highlighting the cupid’s bow of your lip with a cream base. I would probably use a bit of undereye concealer there, which would be just a tiny bit lighter than your normal skin tone. Read more… Keep reading »

Cindy Sherman For MAC: The Weirdest, Most Awesome Collaboration Yet?

From Hello Kitty and Wonder Woman to RuPaul and Rodarte, MAC collaborations have pretty much run the gamut from one side of the weird/kooky/cool pop culture spectrum to the other. Just last week, the cosmetics company announced that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin (interestingly enough) would represent the brand in their 2012 Viva Glam campaign. The kitsch factor runs high with MAC, and seems to underlie almost every project they take on (the Disney Venomous Villians collection?). And that sense of humor definitely shows through in its newest collaboration with off-kilter-but-awesome American photographer Cindy Sherman, whose daring, conceptual self-portraits question and challenge the way women are portrayed — and often stereotyped — in society.
