MAC Cosmetics & Barbie Collaborate On A New Lipstick
The iconic toy has joined forces with the beauty label to celebrate her 61st birthday with a brand new role as a ‘MAC Maker' and the launch of her very own custom lipstick shade.
Described as a "cool-toned bubblegum-pink," the limited-edition matte lipstick comes in classic gold casing. "The Barbie cool-toned bubblegum-pink shade with a Matte finish embraces endless possibilities -- working wherever your day or career path takes you," reads the description on the MAC website. Images posted to the brand's Instagram feed show the shade modelled on Barbies with a range of skin tones.
The move is the latest in a string of high-profile projects for Mattel's Barbie, which unveiled a 'Barbie Wellness' collection featuring a meditation doll earlier this year. Of course, the global icon is no stranger to beauty collaborations, either, partnered with the retail giant Sephora in 2018 on a "Sephora Collection x Barbie" collection that took the form of a throwback, 1980s-style boombox. A NCLA Beauty X Barbie collection also launched that year, with the vegan cosmetics brand rolling out a nostalgic, 1990s-style 13-piece collection inspired by the iconic doll.
MAC, for its part, has a long history of launching collections with famous faces, such as Nicki Minaj, Patrick Starrr, Jade Jagger and more.
