Woooohoo! The first images for Lorde’s collaboration with MAC are out! It will be a 2 piece collection consisting of a purple/plum lipstick called Pure Heroine and a black Penultimate Eye Liner called Rapidblack.
Like the 17 year old New Zealander, the collection is simple yet dark and vampy. I’ve admired Lorde since she broke out into the music scene. With stars like Miley Cyrus being very “it” at the time, I really admired how Lorde stayed grounded, made it all about the music and, well, kept her clothes on. She’s won many accolades since then and has featured on the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Lorde has said about M.A.C, “I have loved M•A•C Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first M•A•C lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! M•A•C has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.”
A simple cat-eye is a classic look and you can go a little thicker for an edgier look. Deep, purple lips are huge this Winter and they aren’t going away anytime soon so this lipstick is going to sell like hotcakes. If Rihanna’s M.A.C collab is anything to go by, the lipstick will be sold out after only a few hours of hitting the shelves!
The Lorde for M.A.C Collection hits shelves in the U.S on June 5 this year and will be sold until July 3. I’m not sure when it will hit South Africa but I am to believe it will be sometime in the late Winter. I’ll be there on launch day waiting to get my hands on both the lipstick and the eyeliner.
See you in line!
Until next time
Love and sparkles
