Just when we thought Ms. Roitfeld couldn’t put any more on her plate, MAC Cosmetics announces a limited edition collaboration with Carine. Whoa, this woman seems to have more plates spinning than anyone else in fashion, except maybe Mr. Lagerfeld who always seems to be burning the candles at all ends. No wonder they are buddies/brands. We have admired Carine’s heavy brow and smokey eye look for years now, and we cannot wait to see the packaging. The ad for the line accompanying the WWD article seems a bit on the heavily re-touched side but hey, Roitfeld is no spring chicken. Regardless, we think she looks hot. This collection of beauty goods might actually make us venture into the dreaded cosmetics area of the dept store. On second thought, we’ll just order online.
WWD write up by Julie Naughton: ROITFELD MAKES UP: MAC Cosmetics is expected to reveal today that it will launch a limited edition color cosmetics line with Carine Roitfeld. Set to launch this fall, the line has a heavy focus on the eyes and brows, mirroring Roitfeld’s signature smoky eye, bold brow and nude lip. Roitfeld consulted on all aspects of the collection, including package design, product names and color palettes; she also appears in the collection’s ad image, shot by Mario Sorrenti.
