Daphne Guinness for MAC!

It was only a matter of time before someone smartened up and gave Daphne Guinness the makeup line she was destined to create.

MAC (always the innovator in terms of collaborations) stepped up to the plate today and announced The Daphne Guinness for MAC collection.

The dramatic, jewel toned collection features pigments, blushes, eye shadows, nail polish, and lip products in MAC's classic packaging.
Side Note: Based on the pictures MAC released I don't actually see Daphne's name on any of the products. This leads me to believe that in stores they'll be limited edition colors without much emphasis on Daphne's involvement since outside of the fashion world, she's not that well known. If you're going out in search of her products I suggest knowing the individual names because if you just ask for the Daphne collection the sales girls will probably give you blank looks and have no idea what you're talking about. Why don't brands insist that up-to-date knowledge of the brand (and all up coming items) be a job requirement? 
Sorry, ranting.

It won't be in stores until December 16th but given how quickly past MAC collections have sold out, and the rabid fascination with Ms. Guinness' life, I think pre-ordering would be the safe bet.

Pro LongWear Lip Creme in Approaching Storm ($17)

I'm dying over both of the ombre blushes, and the lipsticks in both Approaching Storm, and Seasoned Plum. Aren't they perfect for the holidays?

Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom ($17)

(Thanks to MAC and Racked for the pictures!)

LOVE the Mac lipstick in Plum - such a gorgeous color for the fall/winter season. Nice to meet a fellow Bostonian blogger ;)


I really want to try out some mac lipsticks, don't know what colors would suit me ?

I love Disney, Fashion and Coffee = all 3 are in 'Fashion' category for me ;)

How have you been??

In response to your comment: Of course it's okay (: And ugh, isn't that sketch beauuutiful?

And I'm SO excited for this collection; MAC collections are usually too haste-y for my liking, but this! The inspiration! The eyeshadow quad! The lipstick! Time to get my vamp on.

you're right, it's a shame MAC isn't likely to brand it as Daphe Guiness' collection-- she's got plenty of cred for the fashion crowd. love the color palette!

I really wanna try a violet/berry lipstick!! Nicolle Saylor let me try hers (it was actually super dark) and it was too much of a jump for me. I need to take baby steps!
