Wonder Woman Gets Beautified

While celebrities left and right are creating their own fragrance, everyone’s favorite comic book vixen, Wonder Woman, is branching out into the world of cosmetics. To celebrate the superhero and her beauty, MAC Cosmetics is launching a limited edition color cosmetics collection this spring, all based on the kickass cuff-wearing comic book character. The line will include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush, and nail polish, undoubtedly inspired by her red, white, blue, and gold bustier, short-shorts, and knee-high boots. Superpowers not included.

MAC Planning Name Change For “Juarez”-Inspired Products

Dang, when people complain, MAC really does listen. Last week, Jessica told you about the makeup brand’s collaboration with designers Rodarte, which was inspired by the culture and colors of Mexico. Two nail polish shades were named “Juarez” and “Factory,” which we deemed insensitive and offensive, because the town is notorious for the number of women who have been raped and murdered with little or no response from police. MAC first responded by saying that they planned to donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit the city’s crime victims, but even bigger steps are being taken today. According to The Cut, MAC sent an email around to editors saying that they are now planning on changing the names of the products in the collection. No word yet on what those changes will entail, but thumb’s up to MAC for taking the complaints seriously. Let’s hope they’re still planning on those donations though. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

MAC/Rodarte Responds: They Will Donate A Portion of Proceeds To Crime Victims In The City

We spoke; MAC and Rodarte listened. After my post yesterday about the MAC/Rodarte makeup collaboration which I think tastelessly names new nail polishes “Juarez” and “Factory,” MAC has released a statement to NYMag.com’s fashion blog, The Cut: Keep reading »

MAC/Rodarte Makeup Collaboration Names Nail Polish After Impoverished, Murdered Women

My favorite makeup brand, MAC, has teamed up with Rodarte designers for a September 2010 collaboration based on their fall collection— but it’s gone horribly wrong. Drawing inspiration from the colors and culture of Mexico, MAC/Rodarte features a pink powder blush called Quinceanera, a sheer white lipstick called Ghost Town, and other items. That’s fine and dandy. But they’ve also tastelessly named their nail polishes Juarez (a pink frost) and Factory (a mint frost). Why’s it tasteless? Juarez is an impoverished Mexican factory town notorious for the number of women between the ages of 12 and 22 who have been raped and murdered with little or no response from police. Keep reading »

The Apple Of Your … Ear

If you’re a true Apple fan, you have already signed up with Cupidtino and placed your pre-order for the iPhone 4.0, so here’s a new product to satisfy your Steve Jobs hunger. Nicola Harper from Geekware channeled her Mac addiction into a jewelry fetish and found a way to re-use old computer parts. With two on/off buttons, she created a set of MacBook Power Button Earrings and transformed two command buttons into a set of Apple MacBook Cufflinks. As with everything Apple-related, the items are a bit overpriced, retailing for $29.95 and $49.95, respectively. But for those who shell out upwards of $499 for an iPad, this is spare change, right?
