The release date is almost here. According to multiple press releases and announcements, the new MAC Makeup and Giambattista Valli Summer 2015 collection will be available on line July 7, 2015 and in select stores on July 9, 2015. The product is expected to ship to retailed through mid August. If only we had a list of when and where the newbies will arrive as they are sure to sell out. Get ready to see some outrageously priced lipstick on eBay! For this collection, MAC partnered with the Italian designer, Giambattista Valli. Whoever didn’t know who he is certainly does now. He is known for his floral designs. The new MAC makeup collection will feature 5 matte lipsticks and a lip gloss inspired by shades used in his fashionable masterpieces.
The Beautiful MAC Makeup and Giambattista Valli Collection:
The MAC Makeup and Giambattista Valli Colors:
(Color descriptions in order of photograph above – All lipstick tubes match the color of the lipstick inside. A completely new concept for MAC)
1. MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Color: ‘Bianca B’
If you love pastels, Bianca B will be a love for you. It is a pale, pinkish-white lipstick with full coverage.
2. MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Color: ‘Margherita’
This is my favorite in the collection. Margherita is a soft peach opaque lipstick. From swatches, it appears to be a peachy orange. It is a color that would suit most skin tones and tastes.
3. MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Color: ‘Tats’
Every collection has a pink punch and this is it. Tats is a bright hot pink that is likely to become a Mac Cult favorite.
4. MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Color: ‘Charlotte’
‘Charlotte’ is medium red shade with cool undertones. Usually, cooler reds are more versatile so this may be a red that works for lots of lipstick lovers.
5. MAC x Giambattista Valli Lipstick Color: ‘Eugenie’
We continue to see dark vampy colors in new collections and this is no exception. ‘Eugenia’ is a deep reddish brown with blue undertones.
6. MAC x Giambattista Valli Crystal Glaze Gloss Color: ‘Lena’
If you don’t favor matte lipsticks, the collection includes a clear gloss. It can be worn over the lipsticks to add shine or alone for a natural sheen. You can also use any gloss you already own to wear over these lipsticks if you want to add sheen or alter the color.
Be on the lookout for more information as the collection becomes available for sale on line. Perhaps your local MAC Makeup boutiques or department stores can inform you when the collection will be arriving. Then you can be first in line to get your new swanky lipsticks!
Lots of Love,
