MAC Make-Up Art Cosmetics Fall 2009 Collection As Seen By Illustrator Maira Kalman

August 7, 2009

We still chuckle (along with all of Manhattan) over the now-famous New Yorker cover illustration of “Newyorkistan.” Cheeky, witty, always amusing, Maira’s illustrations are cute and colourful, wonderfully child-like, playful…and sophisticated all at once. Technakohl Liners and Maira’s Magical thinking Eye Shadows are made for the MAC Artist with a sense of mischief and a deep desire to be defiantly different. Warm and eccentric at the same time, Maira’s faces are full of cock-eyed optimism, with the tiniest smidge of city-girl-snobbism…simply, scrumptiously, stupendously sublime!

    The colours all look so cute and colourful, but would need to see it in person first. I mostly will pick up the haunting e/s, full of fuschia and artistic license liners.
