The infamous fictional villainess, Cruella de Vil of 101 Dalmatians’ fame, may be an unlikely beauty icon at first glance. But take in her signature red lip, elegantly coiffed hair, and boldly arched brows, and it’s clear that she’s a woman who truly commits to her look, Dalmatian fur coat included. Portrayed by Emma Stone in Disney’s new live-action release, Cruella, the luxe-loving anti-heroine is also the inspiration for MAC’s latest makeup collaboration.
The 12-piece limited edition collection captures the New Wave meets Punk aesthetics of 1970s London. “With there being such a huge trend for recycling the more niche counterculture moments of previous decades, this collection feels like MAC returning to a celebration of the kind of DIY styling and brave transformation that originally made it such a maverick brand,” says MAC’s director of makeup artistry, Terry Barber. “It’s high glam with plenty of attitude, brought to a new generation.”
Cruella’s iconic red lip is at the forefront of the launch, with two crimson hues available in MAC’s Matte Lipstick formula, the bright red ‘De Vil in the Details’, and blood red ‘Camden Caper’, plus the light pink ‘Sweet-N-Vicious’. Three Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolors in two reds and a brown-pink round out the lips collection. Dressed in Cruella’s signature two-toned black and white, the ‘Cruella to be Kind’ palette includes eight matte, frost, and satin finish shadows in a red, black and white focused color story.
