MAC Cosmetics Launching Exclusive Star Trek Collection




Premiering 50 years ago this September, Star Trek has gained a legion of loyal fans that span age, gender, race and galaxy. I have to admit I have probably watched every episode of the original show and all the movies at least twice. With 3  brothers it was always action and science fiction show.  MAC is launching another great collection that pays tribute to this iconic show.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,” said MAC Senior Vice President and Group Creative Director James Gager in a press statement. “For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.”

Caricatures of Star Trek female characters Seven of Nine, Deanna Troi, Uhura and Vina, the Orion girl, front the campaign for MAC’s new Star Trek makeup collection.
The striking campaign visuals for the line capture the beauty of Star Trek female characters Seven of Nine, Deanna Troi, Uhura and Vina, the Orion girl.

Details for the 25 multi-piece collection are still scarce, but we do know it will launch globally this September and include lip colors, eye shadows and nail polishes. Trekkies and makeup lovers alike will be able to purchase the MAC Gaslamp at an exclusive pre-sale on July 21, which coincides perfectly with the San Diego Comic-Con.





High-society darling, artist, pop philosopher, muse and jewellery designer Bao Bao Wan is one of China’s most renowned style stars. Her debut collaboration with M•A•C is inspired by her womanly and brazen aesthetic, with metallic golds and rich jewel tones reflecting her trademark decorative designs. Eyes are gilded in bronze, skin twinkles like a diamond, lips flicker like rubies and nails outshine even the most precious gems. The collection is outfitted in velvety brown packaging featuring burnished metal, embellished with her signature. Nodding to tradition while trailblazing new trends, M∙A∙C and Bao Bao Wan invite every face to take centre stage.

MAC announces Miley Cyrus as the new face of Viva Glam!


Miley Cyrus is the new face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign! Color me shocked!

I’m actually surprised it’s taken this long. If anything screams Viva Glam – it’s Miley. What do you think of their collaboration?

For the last 20 years, MAC’s Viva Glam campaign has been teaming up with passionate celebrities to create capsule collections of lipsticks and glosses that raise funds and awareness for HIV/AIDS programs (every cent of the sale price goes to the cause). Now, Miley Cyrus joins the ranks of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga as the latest spokesperson for the campaign, which launches in January 2015 with a hot pink lipstick and sparkly gloss.
