Whereas MAC's holiday collection is all about metallics and gilded excess, the new Stylistics collection fast-forwards the look to the present. Featuring the stunning Alek Wek as its model, the limited-edition line is a little jazzy, a little elegant, and very cool.
The first thing you'll notice is the chic packaging, which features black and white pearls in squared-off packaging. It's a big departure from MAC's normal containers, but I like it — it feels special and glamorous without being too Joan Collins, you know? The collection includes four lipsticks ($22), four Lipglasses ($20), Sheerspark pressed powder ($22), Sheer Mystery powder ($45), special-edition brushes ($22–$42), an evening clutch ($60), and the Air of Style scent ($60), which is a baroque floral.
The Stylistics collection is available at MAC boutiques and online as of today. Shipping of online purchases is estimated to begin next Tuesday, so keep that in mind. If you're impatient, it might be quicker to call the MAC boutique closest to you to see if it's in stock!
