Zac Posen x Mac


Do the creative teams at MAC cosmetics ever sleep? I think not. The brand is constantly launching collaborations with famous artists and coveted designers. The next fashion house to be immortalised in make up is Zac Posen. There was a collective gasp heard round the beauty world when news broke that Zac Posen was collaborating on a line with MAC. MAC has been working backstage at Zac’s runway shows for years, so this collection is really no surprise.


MAC limited edition collections are always exciting. With the limited edition packaging, new shades and formula­ MAC always stands class apart from other brands. There is absolutely everything I love about this collection.

MAC Zac Posen Lipstick­ Darling Clementine




It is one of the three lip shades launched. It is a bright orange with warm/red undertones and it has a matte finish. It has excellent colour payoff in a single swipe and has a smooth consistency that glides easily on lips without tugging. Apart from the provocative packaging,which reminds me a little of MAC Brooke Shields part deux with all the matte grey packaging and burnished gold tubes, I like the mix of warm and cool shades. I was secretly hoping the collection would allow me to achieve Zac’s signature eye roll from Project Runway, but did not. It’s really,really hard to look as tired and completely over it as Zac does when he’s sitting in the judge’s chair, LOL!

The shade immediately reminded me of ‘Morange’ from MAC and I actually swatched them side by side on my hand. They are quite similar except that Morange has a cream finish while Darling Clementine has a satin/matte finish.The formulation for this is incredibly pigmented and while it has a matte finish,the texture doesn’t feel dry or clingy. Although not transfer­proof, Darling Clementine has a nice wear, at least five hours or so with minimal eating/drinking.



MAC Zac Posen Retro Black Eyeliner

Are you looking for an eye liner that combines the vivid pigment of fluidline with the versatility of a pen? Well, Here’s one for you. It glides across the lid like liquid ink.The applicator’s ultra­fine tip provides a sleek, high ­intensity line that’s smudge­ resistant and dries quickly to a matte finish. My eyes get the extra oomph of black liner.




The MAC Zac Posen’s signature love of bold and daring colours has left me in awe.I just cannot get over the classic and refined look created with black liner and vintage orange and hot pink lipsticks. So, are you planning to grab any product from this collection ? If yes, which one?

Until Next Time,


Bella Karisa
