The new Lipstick we’re currently obsessed with
When you think of Barbie, and more specifically Barbie Style, a few things instantly spring to mind, namely her extensive wardrobe, documented on one of our new favourite IG accounts @barbiestyle and, depending on the Barbie personality, their hair and makeup. Making her debut in 1959, Barbie was an influencer before her time, and at last count possesses over two million Instagram followers and 5.5 million followers and counting on YouTube.
With a strong history of promoting both inclusivity and diversity, there couldn’t be a better partner for M·A·C’s latest collaboration. As of this week, Barbie now has her very own M·A·C Lipstick as part of our M·A·C Makers Collection, which has also seen us team with global beauty powerhouses including Barbie, Sam and Nicola Chapman, Tessa Virtue, Rosy McMichael and more.
In true Barbie fashion, the Lipstick is a cool-toned pink hue complete with a forever-trending matte finish. When you apply it the creamy texture glides on beautifully to achieve an array of finishes, and the vibrant hue suits a broad spectrum of skin tones. “You can wear it in a playful way,” says Global Senior Artist Carol Mackie. “Apply it sheer as a soft, lolly-like stain or create a powerful pink statement pout, and pair it with Lip Pencil in Talking Points.” Encased in a chic metallic gold tube that makes as much of a fashion statement as the bullet, it’s a shade you need to have on high rotation in your lipstick line-up.
