Every season, M.A.C never fails to give us plenty to get excited about, in the form of a whole bunch of special makeup collections that include a designer/celebrity collaboration or two, and way too much pretty packaging, shades and textures.

Since the Holiday season is almost upon us as well, there’s a bumper crop of new launches to expect over the following months, including M.A.C’s Holiday collections which always take the pretty factor through the roof – this year’s no different. We’re like, TAKE ALL OUR MONEY.

Guo Pei collection

Guo Pei is the Chinese fashion designer behind that Rihanna dress from this year’s Met Gala:


She’s China’s most eminent haute couturier, and her collection for M.A.C is inspired by the theme “Garden Of The Soul”. That means dreamy floral packaging encasing jewel tones for the eyes and feminine floral hues for the cheeks and lips – definitely the prettiest collection of all of this season’s launches.


Available from Oct 1 at M.A.C TANGS at Tang Plaza.


M.A.Cnificent Me collection


This is M.A.C’s Fall colour collection, but they went with a really cool idea for the campaign – putting out a global call for contest entries from M.A.C fans explaining why they were truly M.A.Cnificent, inspiring individuals. Six winners were chosen and flown to New York to be photographed for the campaign (see them here), and the colours and textures in the range are as diverse as they are. All the staples, including the Eyeshadow x 9 palette, Patentpolish Lip Pencil, lipstick and lip pencil, and Mattene are all represented in limited edition and permanent shades.

Available from Oct 2 at all M.A.C stores and counters.


Charlotte Olympia collection

MAC Charlotte Olympia Campaign Visual

This collaboration is still in the works so there are no product images available yet, but boy do we have high hopes for this one. Luxury shoe and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia will lend her whimsical aesthetic to M.A.C makeup, and this collection promises to be one inspired by retro glamour. We expect lots of lovely red lipsticks already.

Charlotte Olympia collection, available Mar 2016. More details to come.
