The animal kingdom and the world of beauty clash, for a collaboration that is quite simply, adorable. Teaming up with designer Nicola Formichetti, makeup powerhouse MAC is launching a range of panda emblazoned products. Having started his own streetwear brand Nicopanda in 2011, Formichetti who has previously worked at Mugler, Uniqlo, and Diesel as artistic director, has already showcased his love for colors and textures. Bringing this passion to the world of beauty, the collection is taking on new boundaries with avant-garde palettes and a first for MAC, face stickers.
The collection also comprises of lip gloss, lipsticks, eyeshadows and face products with the face stickers featuring hearts, flowers, bows and the Nicopanda bear head. Colors look to plums and vivid greens for unique shades to add to your beauty arsenal. Names include Stay Cute and Preppy Panda, which were also all named by Formichetti. Of course, the collection would also be nothing without some panda inspired packaging, with the Nicopanda symbol featured throughout. Given total freedom of expression, this is one of the most exciting MAC collaborations to date.
The MAC x Nicopanda collaboration will launch in April worldwide.
