It’s been 20 years since the death of Selena Quintanilla, and much like her music, her signature makeup look is still just as coveted today as it was in 1995. There are about a billion YouTube tutorials featuring her trademark red lips and dark brows, so why not launch a Selena-inspired cosmetics collection? Countless celebs have had their… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… 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… READ MORE »

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!

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. READ MORE »

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 does… READ MORE »

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, as… READ MORE »

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 expertly… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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 Snow White,… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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: … READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »
