Damn, M.A.C, back at it again with the covetable collabs. The cosmetics juggernaut wowed us last year with its partnership with Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande, and is poised to take our money (again!) with perhaps its most interesting collaboration yet with Chris Chang.
Shanghai-based fashion designer Chris Chang draws her inspiration from traditional costumes from around the world, and this is instantly apparent once you lay eyes on this collection. Impossibly vibrant and outlandish, nothing embodies a ‘kaleidoscope of colour’ more aptly than this 14-piece makeup collection.
For the quirky girl with a penchant for rainbow hues, paint your lips in unconventional shades like Cloud Gait, a pastel turquoise lippie with a semi-sheer finish, or Gold XIXI, which comes in a lemon pastel yellow. You can coordinate your pucker with your peepers with the matching eyeshadow shades, Pale Pipa and Royal Woo, respectively. Go big or go home.
M.A.C x Chris Chang ensures that there’s something for everyone. If green lipstick is too ‘out there’ for you, you can still take home a part of Chang’s signature flair. Plum Princess is a pastel, plum lavender matte lipstick that brings out the #softgrunge in you, while Vermillion Vee is a classic true red lipstick that should have a place in every girl’s boudoir.
And don’t even get us started on the jaw-droppingly gorgeous packaging. The colourful artwork on the façad is an ode to Kunqu, one of the oldest forms of Chinese opera, and will be sure to stand out from the rest of the items in your makeup collection.
$34 to $49, available May 28 at TANGS Orchard.
