Iris Apfel For M.A.C Collection : Promo Photos & Product Info

A colour collection inspired by a rare bird who has always been ahead of her time, Mrs. Iris Apfel. Subject of her own exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and larger-than-life star in Barneys New York windows, Apfel boldly mixed flea market finds with haute couture decades before doing it was considered de rigueur. M·A·C presents Lipsticks, Beauty Powder and Eye Shadows with as much fabulous flair and joie de vivre as the woman who helped create it.

I must say, I do love the concept of this collection, as it harps back to MAC's classic icon collections and Iris certainly is an icon. However the collection falls short on products and colours, in my opinion they are rather drab and uninspired. What do you guys think? Will you be picking anything up from this collection?

  1. I like the look of the lipsticks and lip pencils, even though they're not that unique I might pick up a few of them! xx
