Over the weekend it was announced the next MAC Cosmetics Icon collection would feature, Brooke Shields. This is WONDERFUL news for the beauty world! This new and exciting collaboration will feature 15 gorgeous MAC pieces. The packaging itself is exciting as well. We will see a departure from the traditional MAC black packaging to a gray themed packaging with orange detailing. The inspiration for this color scheme was in fact inspired by a recent redecorating project Brooke Shields had incorporated in her New York home. Personally, I love it - the two colors look great together!
The collection will be geared towards attaining two versatile looks - an every day fresh look and a darker, more sultry look. Which is made possible by the jewel of the collection - the 15 pan eyeshadow palette. At just $85 USD this will definitely be a high demand item. The collection* will also feature a brow liner ($20), a brow set ($17), two Veluxe Pearl Fusion shadows ($44 ea), a Cremeblend Blush Duo ($31), two lipsticks ($22 ea), two lipglasses ($22 ea), two nail lacquers ($17 ea), a bronzer ($27.50) and a mascara ($17).
I really love that Brooke took an active role in the creation of the collection. According to WWD (see link below for the article), not only did Brooke assist in the creative process but she tried to create a collection that injected different parts of her personality by drawing upon her strengths, not only as a woman but also as a mom as well.
