The moment you didn’t know you were waiting for is here! Iris Apfel, fashion icon, lover of jewelry and all things sparkly and fun, is coming out with her own line of makeup for MAC — and it’ll be in stores for you to snap up in just a few weeks.
MAC’s spokespeople say the new colors are inspired by Apfel’s masterfully built collection of haute couture clothing and flea market finds, which she amassed and put together in radical ways over the last few decades. How you can manage to parse down a collection of clothing and jewelry like Apfel’s into a handful of lipsticks and some eyeshadow is beyond us, but MAC seems to have done it well.
The collection includes five lipsticks and three lip pencils; five eyeshadows, a mascara, a brow pencil and an eye pencil; a powder; and three shades of nail polish. With the exception of the $23 powder, everything retails for $15 or less.
And while we’re excited about the nail polish (the purple shade is called Toco Toucan, and if that’s not a best-selling name we don’t know what is) we’re just as excited about the campaign images, which you’ll see below. In them, Apfel looks — for a complete and utter lack of a better word — fierce. Take a look and tell us you’re not going to run out and get some yourself when it starts selling on January 5.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
