One might think that the most delightful and gratifying surprises from the cult-favorite fashion and beauty brands are to be expected before the Christmas holidays. Actually, this strategy is more than conventional and button-down but it will be destroyed in an instant once you hear the great news from your favorite red-carpet-decorating fashion brand Zac Posen and iconic makeup brand MAC Cosmetics that has always been somewhere on the red carpet or on a runway. The two sought-after brands have joined their forces, energies, skills, techniques and goodness knows what else to work out a collaborative unprecedented makeup collection that will hit the MAC stores only in February 2016, a period when after-Christmas melancholy wraps our soul and body, and, as ill luck would have it, the spring sun is lingering with spreading its warm rays. The magnificent Zac Posen x MAC Cosmetics collaboration goes beyond a surprise; it will definitely be a psychological consultation for many of us.
The collaboration comes to be more than natural given that MAC has been the very beauty brand to support Zac Posen’s runway shows for already 15 years. Among all those makeup manufacturers it was cult-classic MAC with its bold, vibrant shades that could be harmonious and sweet-sounding with Zac Posen’s extravagant female silhouettes featuring the most intricate and sophisticated fabrics ever. And now it seems that the time is ripe for Zac Posen to inject some extravagant and flamboyant vibes into the MAC Cosmetics to launch his debut makeup collection that is later to illuminate many important ceremonies all over the world.
“Over the past 15 years I have learned a great deal from M∙A∙C 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. It was only natural to work with M∙A∙C to create my first ever signature collection. I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage,” states Zac Posen.
The American talented designer has definitely achieved his goal in creating somehow luxurious and mysterious atmosphere around the sweet fruits of the collaboration. Being housed in dark olive green compacts, the collection features eyeshadow palettes in rich, saturated shades with MAC signature velvet and matte finishes, Venetian red lipsticks to envelop any fashion-conscious woman’s sensual lips with sultry satin feeling, black eyeliners and mascaras to accent impressive eyes and to provide dramatic look, as well as cream-shaded powders, bronzers and of course soft caressing brushers.
However, these are definitely not the only products that the collaboration will pamper us with. We need to calendar the days starting from now till February in order to see what other treasures are hidden there in dark olive green mysterious boxes. Let us hope that the unique fashion designer Zac Posen will not rest on his laurels and will continue pushing his boundaries going deep into the beauty industry up to provoking us to daydream: “When on earth will he treat us to Zac Posen fragrance?”
