It’s pretty plain to see that we at BN love the French (exhibit A) so when MAC announced their collaboration with French graffiti artist Fafi, we were sufficiently psyched. Fafi’s colorful world of curvaceous cuties bring an instant smile to our faces and MAC’s interpretation of her signature chick-a-boom girls on the compact, gloss and lipstick packaging in the collection is both fun and empowering.

We were lucky enough to meet Fafi herself (er, and some of the afore mentioned chick-a-boom girls, below) at the February 13 launch event at Henri Bendel.
