Carine Roitfeld is never amiss from fashion news radars as the launch of her much-awaited magazine debut hits fever pitch. Fans of the fashion editor may be impatiently waiting to pore through the positively intriguing pages, but we’re just as happy to see her MAC makeup collection in its entirety—finally.
Echoing the signature makeup look that has kept cameras and attention fixated on her, Roitfeld’s cosmetics collection puts heavy emphasis on her undying love for dramatic smoky eyes. Lovers of color will have to turn their attention elsewhere for nothing in the collection will blind you in brightness—except for a nail lacquer called Underfire Red.
Accounting for the biggest product chunk in the collection are eye-related items such as mascara, eyebrow pencil, clear brow gel, eyelash curler and even false eyelashes. A pair of tweezers and facial stickers even made the cut. Two face palettes—Jungle and Desert Camouflage—banner the editor’s affinity for a toned down, nearly nude makeup look. The sole lipstick in the lot called Tropical Mist is just as subtle, boasting of a sheer translucent nude shade.
Carine Roitfeld for MAC will arrive in beauty counters in North America on September 6, a week before CR Fashion Book‘s release. International MAC counters, on the other hand, will carry the collection this October. Watch a behind-the-scenes video of the fashion icon’s shoot for the collection, where Roitfeld also shared the secrets to her signature look.
