When it comes to beauty reveals, we can always count on MAC Cosmetics to keep even the most die-hard makeup lover on their toes. From “Starrr”-studded collabs to exclusive limited edition shades, they’re the go-to for keeping your beauty game strong. With their latest collection, MAC in Monochrome, the brand has taken six of its most iconic lipstick shades and created a full-face range for each that will make your monochromatic dreams come true.
The shades getting the treatment? Cult faves Velvet Teddy (deep beige), Heroine (bright purple), See Sheer (grapefruit pink), Diva (intense reddish burgundy), Candy Yum-Yum (neon pink), and, of course, Ruby Woo (vivid red). Colors are matched to perfection with an accompanying Lipglass, matte and frost eye shadows, powder blush, and glitter pigment, and lippie packaging has been upgraded to color-coordinated tubes.
The monochrome look has been gaining traction for a few seasons on the red carpet and the runways (think: Lady Gaga’s ice-blue look and Emmy Rossum’s blush-pink palette at last week’s Golden Globes), and with the MAC in Monochrome collection, it’s never been easier to have your own full-face monochrome moment. If you’d prefer to just dip your toe in, MAC Artistry Director Ashley Rudder advises keeping the focus on two of your features for a subtle tonal look. The products are sold separately, so you can play around and build your own kit à la carte — and each one is under $24, making this trend accessible and affordable.
