MAC does it the French Way

French graffiti artist, Fafi, has teamed up with MAC Cosmetics to produce one of the most exciting collections to date. And it's finally landed at a MAC make-up counter near you!

Fafi, known for her drawings of sexy and sassy girl characters , and MAC have created a line that is so bold and innovative, you'll want the entire collection (including the limited edition Fafi figurines and make-up bags) to parade around your bathroom counter.

Personally, I'm obsessed with the packaging. The compacts and lipstick tubes boast original Fafi drawings... tres girly with a street edge, much like the pigments (bold pinks and purples with every hue in between).

MAC's Creative Director, James Gager, says this about the collaboration:
"Fafi will certainly appeal to a younger generation, but I believe the world of Fafi is one that all ages will enjoy. Everyone wants to escape into a world of fantasy and imagination, and that’s what this collection offers."

And MAC's SVP of Product Development, Jennifer Balbier, had this to about the Fafi look:
"The look is toned-down skin with heavier emphasis on eyes and a girly mouth. She’s colourful, but the texture is light... We were inspired by the look and feel of spring. That entails colours with a punch, but not raw or too bold. So you can wear a little or wear a lot."

Hmmm... I can't wait to get my hands on these products... I'm seeing loads of color in my future... just in time for Spring! Here's to the girly-girl in all of us!
