Beauty

O to the M to the G. We don’t normally speak like our little sisters, daughters and assistants, but this news elicited such a response. M•A•C Cosmetics has partnered with former Vogue Paris editress Carine Roitfeld for her own 20-piece collection which hits counters in the fall.  Summer is still over a month away and we’re already counting the days until fall when we can get our well-lacquered mitts on these products.

Like so many of M•A•C’s collections, this will be a limited edition set. The woman who can only be described as a fashion visionary was intimately involved in all creative aspects of the collection: from package to design and from product names to color palettes. So it’ll have her signature stamp on it.

The M•A•C Carine Roitfeld Collection will narrow their focus on eyes and brows, which is a reflection of Carine’s signature look: smoky eye, bold brows and nude lips. Classic, chic and beautiful.

The collection will mark the debut of the Good Luck Star stencil, which can be viewed in the photo shot by Mario Sorrenti. This also marks M•A•C’s maiden voyage with the famed photographer.

In an industry that is often bogged down by ageist practices and attitudes, the fact that Roitfeld has decades of experience, is a grandmother and is being recognized by hip and modern company like M•A•C is pretty stellar. Hot and hip does not come with a “You must be 28″ resume requirement.

Kudos, bravo, standing O and whatever sign of approval you want to show M•A•C as a company! Makeupistas of all ages will be able to beautify with this collection.

Speaking of other fabulous and fashionable people, we’re also in love with Vera Wang’s new Kohl’s Simply Vera collection, which hit counters late last month. It’s as chic as one of her gowns. The Smoothing Lip Color glides on like a dream. Heavenly, really. It’s okay if you don’t discount shop or even admit to it. You can still nab some of these treats online. They’re not inexpensive by any means and the quality is quite terrific.

We also love the Illuminating Pressed Powder by Simply Vera Vera Wang.
