Cindy Sherman, one of the most famous artists of the last century, has posed for photos promoting MAC's Fall Color Collection. The photographer and filmmaker (known for transforming herself through wigs, prosthetics and makeup) is seen wearing three distinct "faces" for the collection. Each represents a group of lipsticks, eyeliners, eyeshadows and other beauty essentials that can be used to create a look that's avant garde, classic or somewhere in between. Though Sherman is not involved with the creation of the collection, her likeness has definitely garnered tons of attention for it. The new products launch Sept. 29. Are you excited about these images?
Last year, the company began selling its products in CVS Pharmacy's Beauty 360. And with a new investor in place, Vincent Longo himself is now again able to work on what he's known for: creating innovative, stand-out formulations.
He'll completely revamp everything except for complexion products. New items will include Liquid Concealer ($28), formulated with arnica and peptides to reduce dark circles and puffiness; Pearl X Eyeshadows ($25), baked shadows with speckled colors; and Perfect Shine V Gloss ($22), glimmery pearl lip colors that add temporary volume. To see what other brand is also making moves to rise from the ashes, just keep reading.
You've probably admired the nails of stars like Beyoncé Knowles, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna, and here's your chance to get in on the action. Minx has just launched a new professional line of celebrity manicurist-designed nail art ($5 to $10 above traditional Minx manicures). Last month, manicurist Lisa Logan, who has decorated the nails of stars like Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige, debuted her own Minx collection, which features eight colorful, geometric designs. And this week, Marian Newman, who has worked with brands like Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood, is set to release her own line, where chromes and graduated colors are the focal points in her eight-piece collection.
That's not all. Naja Rickette, the person responsible for Lady Gaga's "Love Game" and "Paparazzi" nails, and Kimmie Kyees (Katy Perry's and Rihanna's manicurist) are also set to launch their own collections come Spring. Are you excited to check these new Minx collaborations out? Tell us in the comments, and see more of Logan's and Newman's offerings in the gallery below:
The juice will be packaged up in a glass tube with — you guessed it — an asymmetric crystal affixed to its metal top. Also available will be a set of crystal-infused, gloss-filled makeup pendants ($74 to $85) for the face, lip, and body. Aura will be available at Selfridges in the UK exclusively on March 3, eventually rolling out to the Americas next year. What do you think of the description of the scent? Does it appeal to your aura?
Merciful Minerva! MAC is launching a Wonder Woman cosmetics collection — and judging by this preview, it is going to reach the pinnacle of comic-nerd cool. The tough-as-nails Amazon has inspired a set of bold makeup colors for Diana Prince wannabes, along with Wonder Woman's signature red-and-blue packaging. Expect lip gloss, nail polish, shimmering pigments, and more from this collaboration. (The only thing missing? An invisible jet.) Wonder Woman is one of our favorite fictional feminist icons, so we're looking forward to lassoing these goodies when they hit stores in February. See the whole collection here.
There will also be a mini set of six polishes ($22) that will include the first three shades listed above, as well as three exclusive shades: Celibacy Club, a diamond top coat; Sue Vs Shue, a navy blue; and Express Yourself to Yourself, a coral shimmer. Look for the polishes, along with some Glee-inspired nail appliqués, in Sephora, on the retailer's website, and in Sephora's JCPenney locations. A possible color cosmetics line and fragrance may be in the works, as well. I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty Gleeky. Are you feeling similarly gleeful?
Better yet, all proceeds from the auctions will go to Starlight Children's Foundation, an organization that helps children with serious illnesses. The bidding starts Jan. 17, so if you're a Kitty-obsessed auction hunter who wants to do good, mark your calendar.
