Turning back the hands of time we could remember the American fashion designer Zac Posen and MAC Cosmetics to stick together their creative minds and visions over feminine allure and to herald, out of the blue, about the MAC x Zac Posen spring 2016 makeup line to come to season in February, 2016. And now time has come to get an eyeful of the sumptuous ingredients of the collaboration that are infused with MAC’s vibrant fragments and Zac’s extravagant old Hollywood glamour predilections. The collection will hit the stores in February 25, 2016 at select MAC locations.
In the grand scheme of things, the alliance does not seem to be anything unlooked-for, since the two big-league names playing so triumphantly in the world of female come-hither looks, have walked hand-in-hand for already 15 years, since 2001 when Zac Posen rendered out his throw-back glamour aesthetics for the first time. Since then, MAC Cosmetics has always been in attendance on Zac Posen runway shows in keeping with his outre designs, sophisticated silhouettes and geometrical displays. So it’s no wonder to see the eccentric designer get his feet wet in beauty industry through the medium of MAC’s immense experience in the sphere and truth be told, we are more than in high hopes now to see Zac Posen beauty line to drop a bombshell sometime in the future.
Zac’s vision over the collection was to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage, which exactly adds up to what we see at this juncture. The collection includes:
