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? Us either — snag free shipping when you use the code BALM at checkout until September 2, or if your favorite Roitfeld-branded product is sold out, don’t fret: the entire line will be in stores on September 6.
