Love it: the M.A.C Cosmetics X Zac Posen collection

I was hugely excited when I saw the teaser images that M.A.C Cosmetics released last year of their upcoming collaboration with designer Zac Posen, and even more so when I go to actually play with some of the products for real.
It may well be their most “glamorous” collection yet, and I couldn’t put it more perfectly than Harper’s Bazaar, who called it “one of those perfect, makes-total-sense partnerships that makes you slap your forehead and go, "Of course, what took so long?" The designer hasn't been shy about his love of old Hollywood glamour, which takes the form of perfect red lips, a winged eye and sparkly shadow done by M.A.C. makeup artists backstage at his shows each season. Now the wait for the collaboration between the two is over and you can stock your very own red carpet bag with inky liquid liner, deep red lipstick, a purple eye palette, a bronzer/blush duo and more.   
"Over the past 15 years I have learned a great deal from M.A.C. about beauty. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand and I have always wanted to create a makeup collection to complement my designs and brand. It was only natural to work with M.A.C. to create my first ever signature collection," said Posen. "I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage." And he did all of that, with killer products like my two personal faves from the collection – the amazing, limited edition 182 buffer brush (above) and Dangerously Red (also above), the most perfect Blue Fuschia matte lipstick that will last about two weeks’ tops in my possession. Perfection? You have NO IDEA.
Apparently Posen asked himself, "what is modern glamour?" when creating his debut beauty collection, and he definitely answered it. The limited set of basics (mascara, powder, eyeliner, blush, and brushes) and colour (three perfect lipsticks and a to-die-for eye palette) are immediate beauty superstars, or, as Posen put it, "red carpet essentials for every day."
Oscar red carpet inspired? This collection is available right now so get shopping!
