MAC x Lorde for Summer 2014

It looks like 2014 is going to be the year of the celebrity for MAC! Back in January, we saw Rihanna grace the ads of Viva Glam. Kelly and Sharon Osbourne are gearing up for a mom and daughter collaboration. Now, MAC is adding “Royals” singer, Lorde, to the all star lineup! Lorde tweeted a couple of days ago that she’ll be releasing her very own MAC project on June 5th. I must say, I was a little confused when I first read the news over on Specktra. Lorde is still pretty new on the scene and it doesn’t look like she wears much makeup besides her signature vampy lips so I totally didn’t see this coming. But I think her collaboration with MAC may still be pretty interesting! Not only will it draw in a younger demographic for the makeup powerhouse but it could introduce a new trend too. I’m guessing there will be a vampy lipstick (or two or three) released and typically we reserve those colors for fall and winter. Since this will be a summer release it seems that MAC is pushing the makeup world to break out of “seasonal” colors and vamp it up all year round. Hmmm. Who knows? Right now, a release date is all we have right now but fingers crossed we get some solid leaks sooner than later!

    I hate to say it (well, not really, but if I didn’t say that I’d feel bad :-P) but I really don’t like Lorde’s look. I think the dark lips look very aging and just generally unflattering on her. Some girls wear it really well though, but the Lorde look is not something I’d go for.

      I always like her lip choices. It’s the rest of her makeup that I don’t care for. It’s too flat and dry looking. I didn’t want to be mean, but yeah, she looks casket ready most times lol. I’m just hoping for a nice purple lipstick out of this!

    I don’t know..I’m a seasonal kinda girl and I just don’t think this is a good fit for a summer release. Not to mention, i don’t really see it for Lorde as a beauty look. That’s just me. We shall see though…

      It’s not just you lol! I think it’s kind of odd for a summer release as well. I can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with because this is so random
