Style + Functionality: Marcel Wanders goes back to MAC

  Monday 19th March 2012

Another day, another exciting make-up collaboration from the maestros at MAC. It is Dutch designer Marcel Wanders’ second time in the world of MAC Cosmetics, as he first collaborated with the beauty brand in November 2010. The renowned interior designer once again brings his trademark of style and functionality to this season’s must-have cosmetics.

In his follow-up limited-edition collection, the focus is not on the bold and dramatic looks emphasised in his first collection, but rather on every day more wearable looks. His selection of neutral shades come encased in luxuriously angular packaging with a sleek chrome finish that MAC fanatics will be proud to display on their dressing table – no doubt they’ll become cult collectibles!

 

The collection consists of four lipsticks and lipglosses with a shimmery frost finish that is new to MAC lip products, two shades of sheer powder and a mascara. High performance and style merge in a limited edition version of the cult favourite blusher brush – the 187 Duo Fibre Face Brush.

 

The emphasis is that the lips as the most important feature as well as the most powerful tool of seduction and therefore should be highlighted, in keeping with this season’s trend of bare faces and statement lips.

The collection boasts one of the best solid perfumes, which have recently come back in vogue. MAC and Marcel Wanders Air of Style Scent Concentrate is a indulgent feminine scent and comes in a multi-faceted chrome compact. Wanders has also created a stunning embroidered clutch for make-up brushes.

The MAC and Marcel Wanders collection is priced slightly higher than usual MAC products, so you’ll have to decide whether the beautiful packaging justifies the extra cost.
