Make-up powerhouse MAC has a new spokeswoman - the outspoken, big-lipped (and mouthed) Sandra Bernhard. Okay, I'm not going to lie - I'm a huge fan of Will & Grace and Ms. Bernhard's outlandish performance on the sitcom had me in hysterics (from laughter, that is). She can be seriously funny - but she can also be tremendously raunchy and extremely irritating.... unfortunately, the new MAC spot, SANDRA: MOUTHING OFF falls into the latter categories. (Her mouth may be big - she definitely has a fondness for flapping those lips, but come on, are you really going to tell me that her pucker hasn't been prodded in recent years - can you say Restylane?)
Alas, I have not yet tried the gloss, but here's what the power's that be over at MAC would like you to believe:
Sheer lip colour with a pearlized high-shine gloss finish. Formulated to make lips look and feel like more – instantly! Comfortable to wear: lush, multi-dimensional. Sensational in application: gives a cool-warm, vanilla buzz to the lips. Moisturizes, soothes and visibly plumps the lips to make them look luxuriously healthy and well-conditioned. Contains vitamin E for added environmental protection. To keep lips looking full and lush, use it on an ongoing basis.
For MAC's sake, I'm hoping that the new Plushglass collection (available in 12 shades) is more successful then Sandra's fledgling career (apparently the budget wasn't big enough for Angelina and her plumped pout).
