Lipsticks and Couture, what a great combination. It could not get any better when we are talking about Mac new Limited Edition Lipsticks dressed up in exquisite packaging by the amazing Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli. Born in Rome, Giambattista collaboration with the greatest Roberto Capucci, the Fendi and Krizia family, and finally French designer Emanuel Ungaro, marked the beginning of his artistic development in the world of Pret-a-porter and also Haute Couture to finally become his own label by 2005 in Paris, making his collections admired and loved worldwide. The elegance and luxurious female silhouettes are the inspiration behind the collaboration with MAC, and the results are simply gorgeous. No wonder those five new lipsticks are such a unique collection.
Their Matte texture has a rich, long-wear pigmentation for strong, vibrant and luxurious colour lips, and if a matte finish is not your mood, the GIAMBATTISTA VALLI CRYSTAL GLAZE GLOSS LENA, is a clear, subtle multi-coloured pearl gloss to add a touch of sophistication to your colour lipstick or even on its own for a natural glossy look. The new limited collection comes also in five new colours: BIANCA B, a pale white-pink, TATS, a bright hot pink, MARGHERITA, a yellow bright peach, CHARLOTTE, a rich yellow-red and EUGENIE, a dark cherry with blue undertone. All shades are fabulous on their own, mixed together, or on top of each other, for the ultimate duo-dimensional lip colour. I like the combination of Bianca B with Eugenie and also Margherita with Charlotte. Thinking about it, I love to mix them all and create my own mood palette. Whatever is your taste or favourite colour, do not delay because those collectable lipsticks won’t be around for long!
