MAC has been busy with collaborations lately. Guo Pei, Mariah Carey, Charlotte Olympia and a collection to honor Selena. And now the list is getting even bigger, with the announcement that Zac Posen has co-created the brand’s next designer collection. This is appropriate, as MAC supported his first presentation in 2001.
Known for his glamorous dresses and inimitable style, Zac Posen was the star of nearly every fashion week. Given this it is not a surprise that a partnership with MAC would be his foray into the beauty world. After all, the cosmetics giant was responsible for a series of looks by the designer’s exhibitions.
“Over the past 15 years, I have learned a great deal from MAC about beauty. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand, and I have always wanted to create a makeup collection to complement my designs and brand,” Posen said in a statement, adding that he wanted to keep the line luxurious, yet clean and somewhat mysterious with a generous dose of star wattage.
The collection will include a mixture of eye, lip, and cheek products – as well as the brushes – in exclusive packaging. What’s more, there will be a beautiful blush and bronzer duo, a jewel-toned eye palette, a precise liquid eyeliner pen, and gorgeous standout lip shades. And the emerald green box with gold lettering suitable for a red carpet queen.
These products will be eagerly anticipated. With packaging that is as elegant as Posen himself, and the great formulas from MAC, there is no doubt that these products are going to be winners.
The Zac Zac Posen collection hits the shelves in February 2016.
