Ariana Grande Is MAC’s New Viva Glam Girl
The Viva Glam MAC campaign is iconic. For the past 18 years, this campaign has donated all of their proceeds from Viva Glam merchandise to the men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS. What makes this campaign so iconic is the fact MAC has had the some of the top people in the entertainment industry represent the campaign as their spokesperson. Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliott, Fergie, Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have all been the faces behind Viva Glam. Now, Ariana Grande is stepping up to the plate. https://instagram.com/p/9WiZw_IpT5/?taken-by=maccosmetics The Viva Glam collection in the past has consisted of pink and taupe brown hues, specifically for Cyrus and Rihanna. But Grande's collection is much more dark and fits perfectly to the pop princess herself. https://instagram.com/p/9WpX0JopRV/?taken-by=maccosmetics The lipstick practically looks black in the tube, but on Grande it shows as a vampy, deep plum shade.

90s dreams are coming true everywhere! MAC just announced a new holiday collaboration with none other than Mariah Carey. This news is super exciting considering Mariah Carey basically encompasses the holiday spirit with her Christmas classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You." While her entire collection doesn't come out until 2016, MAC is releasing a 90s-inspired lipstick shade on December 3, according to PopSugar. The lipstick shade is called "All I Want" (because why not?) and it's a "beautiful champagne shimmer" color. https://twitter.com/MACcosmetics/status/648859786906365952 MAC creative director James Gager said, "Mariah is the over-the-top pop and beauty icon.

11 Facts You Never Knew About MAC
MAC Is Honoring Selena Quintanilla With A Makeup Collection
Back in February, a Change.org petition "to release a 'Selena Quintanilla for MAC' limited edition collection" made the internet rounds. It was so convincing that the folks over at M.A.C. decided to turn this idea into a reality. It was announced yesterday that the makeup brand is releasing a limited-edition collection honoring the late singer: https://instagram.com/p/5M_P7NIpei/ The line is expected to hit "in the latter part of 2016," according to M.A.C. Creative Director James Gager. We have no details yet on what types of products will be included in the collection, but we would bet money that a red lipstick is involved.

Ellie Goulding Just Landed Her Own MAC Collection

It's definitely a welcome change from the bold and dark colors. Following rumors that Caitlyn Jenner would be the new face of MAC, the cosmetics company exclusively told E!, "M.A.C. Cosmetics is a brand that embraces ALL AGES, ALL RACES and ALL SEXES and is a longstanding supporter of the LGBT community. We are inspired by Caitlyn Jenner, her personal journey and we admire her courage and beauty. We have not signed Caitlyn as a spokesperson for M.A.C." Tell us what you think of the newest collab!

The Only Place You Can Still Buy MAC’s Cinderella Collection Is…
Cinderella has been all over the place lately, thanks to the live-action movie coming out in theaters this Friday. Shoe designers like Jimmy Choo created their own versions of her iconic glass slipper, Hot Topic launched its own Cinderella clothing line and MAC released a limited edition collection inspired by the Disney character. The latter features tinted lipglasses in shades like Glass Slipper and Happily Ever After, eye shadow palettes like Stroke of Midnight, and even Cinderella glitter to give you a princess glow of your very own. Well, we have good news and bad news for all of you. The bad news: MAC's Cinderella collection is totally sold out, and since it's limited edition, they won't be replenishing the stock online or in stores.

Don’t Worry You Won’t Look Like An Oompa Loompa In RiRi’s New Mac Line
We just love it when celebs give back to charity, and our girl, Ri Ri, is no exception. So when we found out that Rihanna's second MAC Viva Glam collection is coming out next month, we were pretty darn excited. But while we expected shades of red like her first Glam collex (which makes sense since every penny of the proceeds will benefit men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS), we got the opposite. This time around, Rihanna and MAC decided to switch it up, but don't let the ads fool you. MAC and Ri lovers will not be walking around wearing bright green lipstick. (Thank goodness!) Instead, the duo opted for frosted mauve lipsticks and lipglass. Yes, Rihanna just brought frosty metallic lipstick back from the 90's and made it cool again. What can't this girl do? Oh and don't worry, if you're more of a traditional red lip kind of gal like T.Swift, the old hues will be available again too. The entire collab will hit MAC's online store on September 8 and brick and mortar stores on September 11th. So check back next month, we'll have more deets and products for you to shop. Remember, it's for a great cause!

MAC x Lorde Is Here! Now Get That Purple Lipstick Before It Sells Out
We got word back in March that Lorde was teaming up with MAC on a limited-edition collection, and now it's here! Just like we expected, there's a vampy dark purple lipstick, similar to the shade the 17-year-old Grammy winner is notorious for wearing. The collab also includes a super black liquid eyeliner so you can nail her exaggerated cat eye look. Yes, only the coolest chick in the music game can get away with calling two pieces "a collection." But hopefully that means there's a ton of both in-stock? If the last MAC collaboration with a singing sensation is any indication (we're looking at you, Rihanna), the lipstick is probably sold out by the time you're reading this. If not, you should get on that ASAP. Can we get a show of hands--who else was hoping for some crazy dip dye nail polish?! May we suggest MAC x Lorde round 2? It only makes sense since RiRi did it not once, not twice, but THREE times.

10 Sweatproof Beauty Products That You Need To Survive Summer’s Hottest Days
It's June, and that means that it is about to get HOT. Really Hot. And while the heat might cause us to break out our sleeveless tops and shorts, it also causes us to break out in a sweat. Whether you're commuting, taking the dog for a walk, or sitting outside at brunch, you will be sweating during the upcoming months. We already know that sweat causes all kinds of crazy beauty problems like greasy, frizzy hair and nasty zits, but sweat also causes your makeup to run. I know you're thinking, "Great, just one more thing to worry about," but don't stress, runny makeup shouldn't be a huge problem. There are tons of products out there that will help to keep your makeup intact, even on the hottest days, and we've found ten of the best. So unless you want to be known as "the girl who's face is dripping off," you should definitely check out all of the sweatproof beauty products in our slideshow. Trust me, you're going to need them.

MAC’s New Waterproof Eye Makeup Will Make Sure Your Brows Don’t Slide Off
This morning, MAC released what could be their most useful product of all time, the Waterproof Brow Set. Available in both liquid and gel, this product is the answer to every makeup artist and brow-filler-inner's nightmare: losing your brows. (Yep, that's a thing.) According to MAC, the collection is made of a waterproof formula that is "sweat-proof, smudge-free, and humidity resistant." If you're one of those girls that likes to (or has to) fill in their eyebrows, I'm sure you understand the struggles. You go to the gym and you're eyebrows slide off. You sweat a little bit on your morning commute, say goodbye to your brows. Humid day? Forget it. And you definitely can't touch your face, EVER. Oh, and don't even get me started on the pool. Now, girls who fill in their brows can jump in the water without their brows disappearing from their face, which is totally awesome. Let's face it, dripping eyebrows are just awkard. So props to MAC for helping us out. The MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set ($16) comes in six different natural shades ranging from light blonde to a deep brown. There are also three Fluidline Brow Gelcreme's ($16) that can be applied with MAC's 208 Angled Brow Brush ($20). So if you want to eliminate your summer fears and have longlasting brows you should take a look at the entire collection in our slideshow then head over to MAC immediately to try it yourself. Trust us! It works and you won't be disappointed. SHOP MAC WATERPROOF BROW NOW Take a look at these other MAC products: MAC x Maleficent, Proenza Schouler x MAC, and Lorde's MAC collab.
MAC x Maleficent Isn’t Makeup For Movie Villains (Aka You Can Actually Wear It)
Inspired by the dark untold tale of Disney's most notable villan, Maleficent, who tormented Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, MAC launched a new beauty collection celebrating the movie's release in theaters on May 30th. When we first heard about this collection, we were excited, yet skeptical that it might be a repeat of the Maleficent products in MAC's Venomous Villans collection, but we were definitely wrong. With an image of the Disney cartoon in mind, we expected purple lip and eye colors, and maybe something green, but the evil Maleficient we know and love is much different in the new movie. Angelina Jolie's character wears a pale face, a bright red lip, and of course, a black robe. So, it is only fitting that MAC chose those as the three main colors in the collection. The 14 piece MAC x Maleficent collection includes lipstick, lip gloss, lip liner, eye shadow, eye liner, fake eye lashes, powder, nail polish, and more. So, whether you want to channel your inner villan or amp up your Friday night look with a bright red lip, you better check out the entire collection in our slideshow. If you don't we might cast a spell on you. SHOP MAC NOW For more MAC products, check out: Proenza Schouler x MAC, Lorde's MAC collab, and Kelly Osbourne x MAC. [Photo: MAC]
Proenza Schouler’s New MAC Collection Is Here And For ‘Cool’ Girls Only
We've been waiting since October, but this morning, MAC finally launched their new 14 piece Proenza Schouler collection. This collaboration by Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough is meant to be "cool," as explained in Allure magazine's April 2014 issue. And with bright summer shades and ombré metallic packaging, I think the duo accomplished just that. The cool Proenza girl is described as being "confident" and having: "Perfect skin with a lip color that's saturated and matte. Or a blank face and crazy nails. Or one bash of bright color on the cheeks," said Hernandez in his interview with the mag. The limited edition collection features a powder brush, creamy longwear eyeliner, pink and coral neon blush, plum, black, nude and coral nail polish, and poppy red and bubblegum lipsticks. So if you want to be a Proenza girl, check out MAC's newest collection in our slideshow. But HURRY, it won't be around for long!

Lorde’s Vampy Lipstick And Dip Dye Nails Land Her A MAC Collaboration
Alright, so Lorde is a 17 year old with a chart-topping album and two Grammys, so what's next? A beauty collab with MAC, #obvi. The singer is teaming up with the makeup brand on a limited-edition collection to debut this summer. We don't know anything yet about the products, but we can probably expect dip dye nails and vampy dark lipsticks--two looks the New Zealand native is totally owning these days. Apparently, the singer has loved the brand since she was a little kid (aka, yesterday). She tells The Cut, "I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends!" MAC senior artist Amber Dreadon is also responsible for Lorde's beauty looks on tour, so this collab makes more than enough sense. We can't wait to see what the two come up with! Because everything this chick puts her name on turns to gold, we mean, becomes royal. While you wait for Lorde's collection, check out the latest from MAC!

You Can Now Shop Carine Roitfeld x MAC In All Its Vampy, Tired-But-Sexy Glory
We knew when Carine Roitfeld left the helm of French Vogue that we'd find her dabbling from one high-fashion project to the next, but she just might be giving Karl Lagerfeld, King of Collaborations, a good run for his money. This time, the queen of the smoky eye is putting her encyclopedic beauty knowledge to work with her collection for MAC Cosmetics, which launches online today (!!). Complete with two five-color palettes, lipstick, mascara, foundation, concealer, polish and (of course), an eye pencil, the collection — which ranges from $15 for a kohl eye pencil or a brow definer and $44 for the five-piece smokey eye color palette — epitomizes Carine's Parisian-gone-gothic style. The dark shades, neutral powders and — my favorite — the dark red vampy nail polish called Underfire Red are exactly what you'd expect from her. Ms. Roitfeld even advises you break the number two beauty rule (second only to wearing sunscreen, duh!) and sleep in your mascara to nab her tired-but-sexy-chic look. Can't wait to get your hands on that polish?

16 Cosmetics Names That Horrify Us, From Mildew To Funeral Home
The recent drama over Rodarte's Mexico-inspired MAC line has us thinking. In case you missed it, there was an outrage over the 'Juarez' and 'Factory' nail polishes, because as The Frisky puts it: "Juarez is an impoverished Mexican factory town notorious for the number of women who have been raped and murdered there." Not the best choice for a shimmery pink. What's even more ridiculous is how many other ill-advised, offensive, and just plain gross beauty names are out there. Juarez is certainly not the first or last - check out some other atrocious names we found (and feel free to leave your own): Although OPI's own Mexico-inspired nail polish line is pretty clean, their Hong Kong Collection is questionable. The borderline stereotypical Chop-Sticking to My Story ($2.65) and A Good Man-Darin Is Hard to Find ($4.73) names leave us feeling like an elder relative just used an out-of-date term at the dinner table. Just awkward. In the sexually explicit category, Essie's After Sex , Over the Knee and Sugar Daddy are winners (or losers?). They're not horrible... until your boss or mother innocently ask what nail polish color you are wearing. Imagine someone asking you what scent you're wearing and confidently replying Funeral Home. Way to bring down the room. Or how about Turpentine or Condensed Milk - all actual scents by the demented folks at Demeter. Speaking of something fishy, Demeter's Lobster scent should go perfectly with Essie's Clam Bake - which conjures up images of stinky fish, not the ocean (if that's what they were going for). Would you like some drawn butter with your beauty regimen? The nastiest names we've heard come courtesy of Urban Decay (whose makeup I love, btw). There's something about applying an eyeshadow called Roach (a mauve-brown) or Mildew (a puke green) or Stalker (pretty purple) that just seems wrong. Finish it off with a liner - Urban Decay's bright blue Deviant, and all that's left to do is spray a few squirts of Demeter's Dirt and you're ready for a night on the town.
