MAC Cosmetics Giambattista Valli Collection Preview

MAC Cosmetics announced its collaboration with Giambattista Valli for a new summer 2015 makeup collection. The 48-year-old couturier and makeup giant are releasing five shades from apricot to pinks and reds that will hit stores in July. Mr. Valli was given complete control over the creations and was able to fully express his love of florals in the collection.

The collection will feature a bouquet inspired range of 5 floral toned shades of lipstick and a lip gloss, which can be used over any of the lipsticks to create a range of additional unique looks. You can expect to see a gorgeously fresh spectrum of floral hues transitioning from a pale sixties pink to a sultry deep plum along with peony, red rose and a juicy mandarin orange shade. The packaging is also very pretty and super convenient with the colors replicated on the tubes.

MAC To Collaborate With Giambattista Valli

MAC Cosmetics is known for its exciting design collaborations -- for the holiday, the brand teamed up with rising star PrabalGurung -- and it looks like next year’s collab is going to be just as big. MAC officially announced, via Instagram, that the brand would be teaming up with designer Giambattista Valli with the aim of giving our lipstick collection a high-fashion makeover.

There will be five colors in the range with “garden shades” serving as inspiration. Hues include: mandarin orange, pale pink, peony pink, rosy red and cherry (matched to a single cherry that Valli showed the MAC team for reference). The lipsticks are matte in texture and there is also a lipgloss. MAC's trademark black packaging has been replaced by colored tubes that match the color of the bullet, making them easy to distinguish.

“The best thing about makeup is that a lipstick can really change your look,” said Valli. “If you never wear color on your lips and then one day you wear red, everyone just goes ‘wow!’. I made these for a woman with personality, a woman who lives her life and isn’t afraid to wear color and isn’t afraid to kiss!”.

Available in the summer of 2015, we’ll keep you posted!
