The newest range features art-centric pieces.
MAC Cosmetics has announced the upcoming release of its new collaboration with street artist and sculptor eL Seed. The limited-edition line includes four lipsticks, four pink coated makeup brushes, a full face kit, a golden highlighter and a makeup bag.

With this new range, he hopes to inspire budding artists to release their inner creativity. He handpicked his signature colors high-octane pink and black as the color palette for the collection. MAC’s Senior Artist Mariam Khairallah was also instrumental in creating the line, she worked alongside Seed to translate his color palette into a bright, pigmented trendy hues.
When speaking of the range he shared:
“I draw my inspiration directly from the streets and from the communities in each location I’m painting. The calligraphy I paint are words infused with profound meaning. Their universal messages cross cultures to inspire and reinvigorate neighborhoods.”
