Marcel Wanders, Dutch designer, has created a unique collaboration with MAC. It's coming out this month, November, and is, essentially, what MAC fans refer to as "the Couture collection" (after a collection with that name several years ago).
Traditionally, the Couture collection is different packaging and products at a higher price point than the basic line.
As with Couture collections past, we are presented with lipglosses, lipsticks, Sheer Mystery Powder (Which someone must be buying or they wouldn't keep bringing it back. Who are you?!), and a brush and bag. Again we have MAC fragrance Air of Style, this time in solid form as a pendant. The brush loolks to he a #188, and the "bag" is a brush roll. All have Marcel Wanders' special designs/packaging.
Tell me what you think! Will you be buying?
I may check out Aleydis, Gertruyd, Digna, and Martha, mostly for the exquisite packaging rather than for the colors. Most likely I'll haul the Air of Style pendant, since I enjoy the scent and it will double as my MAC jewelry item that I'm required to wear when freelancing for the line.
As much as I love my #188, and like the unique handle on this version, there's no way I'm forking over $75 for it or the brush roll! And I've never been impressed with the Sheer Mystery Powders, nor heard a convincing argument in their favor. The mystery is why they keep coming back!
