Fafi MAC: photos and review

New Product Alert: Fafi For MAC


If you like bright colors or graffiti art, you're going to love MAC's new makeup collection. It's a collaboration with Parisian graffiti artist Fafi, who spray paints colorful cartoons of urban girls. Her art is the focus of this limited-edition line, which fuses girly illustrations with sleek black packaging. And as for what's inside, you'll find bright shades dominated by tangerine, pink, and violet.

I was able to play around with this collection at Henri Bendel last week, and I was surprised by its versatility. As bright as some shades are — and some, like the Rollickin' paint pot in turquoise, are quite eye-catching — other colors are more subtle than you'd expect. Not So Innocent, for example, is a pearly tan lipstick that would be acceptable even the most buttoned-up office.

My only disappointment with this collection is that for all the effort that went into design, the packaging could be a little better. Fafi's drawings aren't imprinted on the lipstick cases; instead, they're printed on stickers that wrap around the lipstick tube. It's only a matter of time before the stickers get banged up in my bag, potentially ruining the cute-packaging factor. You win some, you lose some, I guess.
