MAC :: Iris Apfel Collection

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I think we all love MAC. They regularly bring out new collections (faster than my pennies can keep up in fact) and when one that reeeaaalllyyy floats my boat arrives, I have to share it with you. Now is such a time.

Iris Apfel, legendary New York fashionista/interior designer, has teamed up with those MAC Brains and created cosmetics gold. No, not actual gold, I just mean the most beautiful, vibrant, girlie collection I've seen in a fair few months.

(Image: MAC Cosmetics. I tried to crop some of the white out a bit, but alas, the photo wouldn't allow it, naughty thing)

So from this collection I am UBER excited for the lipsticks and lip liners. There isn't one single colour I don't like and I know I would get plenty of use out of them. They make me look forward to spring in a way only bright lip colours can. I currently have a MAC lip liner in Cherry and I can't fault it, it's magic.

They eyeshadows don't call to me as much. There are three matte shades amongst them and I'm more of a frost/satin kinda gal.

I like the look of the black eyeliner, who doesn't need good eyeliner after all? They eyebrow pencil doesn't entice me seeing as I am so crazily in love with my HD Brow Kit, but the beauty powder looks like it could be a winner, I need to swatch it ASAP!

I don't own any MAC Nail polishes because I have a hefty supply of OPI and Barry M to keep me happy, so I shan't comment on those.

I have to say, for me, this collection is all about the lips. Sooooo pppuurrdddyy.

I thought you might be interested to hear what the official MAC Press Release has to offer, so please see that below:

"A colour collection inspired by a rare bird who has always been ahead of her time,
Mrs. Iris Apfel. Subject of her own exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and
larger-than-life star in Barneys New York windows, Apfel boldly mixed flea market finds with hate couture, decades before doing it was considered de rigueur.
M·A·C presents Lipsticks, Beauty Powder and Eye Shadows with as much fabulous flair and joie de
vivre as the woman who helped create it."

(I wonder if 'hate couture' was a typo or if there really is such a thing?!)

  10. The bright pink lipsticks appeal to me but I'm trying not to pick anything I don't 'need' up at the moment!! xx

  11. Oh Flamingo lipstick, why do you have to be sold out? Why do all MAC items I fall in love with have to instantly sell out? :((

  14. I want to get my hands on Flamingo so bad I'm tempted to go to a zoo (where are flamingo's kept?!) and see if it's feathers will squeeze out the same colour!

  16. I love the look of the coral coloured items! I love a good coral. Although, all of the lipstick colours look so amazing that I might just have to save up for all of them.

    Really looking forward to this collection, and some sunny warm weather to accompany it! xx

  17. This is the third time I've tried to comment, stupid Blogger! Anyway! I loooooove these, they are so pretty! I just want to smudge them all over my face at the same time. I don't think that they're sold in Australia just yet (at least they're not on the website anyway) but when they are I would be keen for a bit of Party Parrot! :)

  20. Gah I must own Flamingo somehow! And it is clearly fate as lustre is one of my favourite finishes, although I refuse to pay excessive amounts on ebay. Sigh

  27. I have just posted about this having put two and two together and realised why I have been reading about Iris Apfel everywhere recently! May opt to buy the least exotic thing in the collection - the eyebrow pencil - how very un-Iris of me... (!)
