Rihanna Debuts RiRi Woo Lipstick For MAC

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…

This Week In Style: Moncler Boss Accused Of Stealing Salvador Dali Painting

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 a…

Beauty Test Drive: MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter

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…

Carine Roitfeld Partners With M.A.C. To Create Her Own Twenty-Piece Collection

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…

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…

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.

Cool, Calm, And Powdered

Embarrassingly, I have a little bit of a face glistening problem in the summer. Okay, it's more of a full-on face sweating problem. Especially when the humidity hits. I shall worry about face sweat no more because all of my powder prayers have been answered with MAC's new magically cool liquid powder. Not only doe…

“Glitter And Ice” Collide For Johnny Weir’s M.A.C. Campaign

Johnny Weir is no stranger to M.A.C. makeup; he reportedly wears it while performing on ice. So it's rather fitting that the makeup brand would tap Johnny for its 2011 holiday campaign, titled "Glitter and Ice." Weir iisn't the first man M.A.C. has hired as a brand ambassador; he joins Elton John and RuPaul,…

How To Get Elizabeth Taylor’s Beauty Look

Elizabeth Taylor is, of course, famous for her acting career, numerous marriages, charity work, and love of diamonds, but she was also known for her classic beauty look. She often highlighted her natural beauty with a dazzling red pout, but her violet eyes always took center stage with the help of bold brows and…

Glamorous Tartan Holiday

We'd be happy with having this red tartan bag just because it's perfect for transporting our tiny valuables--like our favorite lipstick, coins, or jewelry. But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the 'Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What's even better? All proceeds go to…

MAC’s Disney-Themed Collection Looks Kind Of Like The Kid Stuff To Us

When it comes to cosmetics, how important is the packaging to you? Are you likely to buy something just because it has something distinctive on it? Like, for example, MAC's new Disney-themed makeup collection, which features cartoon character designs of some of the empire's villains like Cruella De Ville, the Evil Queen from…

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…

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:…

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…

MAC Gets Beachy With Lilly Pulitzer

Just like fusion food, collaborations are (almost) always a good thing. Why not mix two brilliant things together to end up with an even more amazing product? The latest: Lilly Pulitzer has teamed up with MAC cosmetics to create a line of polishes, glosses, and shadows in typical bright, Hamptons-esque colors. Starting Jan. 7, you…

The Ultimate In Halloween Face Masks

So, I'm late to this train, but apparently, every year, MAC Cosmetics asks their artists from around the world to submit their fantasy Halloween makeup looks that can be recreated for you and me. (Sort of a great way to put in minimal effort on the Halloween front—they paint your face and you…

MAC Gets Back To Black

The webs have been buzzing over MAC's much-anticipated new all-black collection, Style Black, for awhile now. We're excited to report it finally launched today! We are not just talking about eyeliner here, we're talking black lipstick, baby. Now, we've all decided that the latter is one helluva tricky trend, but today we've got…

Hello, SM Kitty

This new ad for MAC Cosmetics is a surreal, kinky take on Alice in Wonderland, featuring a trip through a (ahem) pink tunnel that takes Alice into a faraway land, where she gets molested by a roving gang of shirtless, male, SM-styled Hello Kitties. Well, then! Apparently, the four-minute, outre mini-movie is a…
