Sorry for going MIA for the past few days, but I've come down with the worst cold and cough known to mankind which has been consuming all of my energy. After spending too much time laying on the couch with a mug of green tea in one hand and a box of tissues in the other hand, my fingers began to itch and I knew it was time to get back to work for the blog again. And I'm doing it with some exciting news from MAC!
MAC has been killing it with their collaborations; I'm still waiting for a MAC x Kylie Jenner collab though. I can't die peacefully if I don't know which lipstick and / or lip liner she's using. And they announced two more! One with the edgy fashion brand Nasty Gal and one with Miley Cyrus for Viva Glam.

I'm starting with the collaboration that I'm most excited about: MAC x Nasty Gal. All of you must have heard of the fashion brand at one point; they sell tons of items that totally fit my style, which is why I was shrieking of excitement when I found out they were teaming up with MAC:
"MAC partners with Nasty Gal, the style destination for risk-takers and tastemakers, in a high-intensity collection of shades as daring as the #GIRLBOSS herself, Sophia Amoruso. Deep purple, bombshell red and rich burgundy lipsticks team up with a fiery nail lacquer. This season, style has attitude, and so do you."
Look. At. Those. Babies! They're just screaming my name. And the best of all: they're matte. I'm not going to babble about my addiction for red and matte lipsticks once again; I think y'all know by now. All I know is that I have to get them, all three of them. I'm just hoping the MAC x Nasty Gal collection won't be sold in the US exclusively, but in Europe too.
* Stunner - Sultry Red (Matte)
* Runner - Lush Burgundy (Matte)
* Gunner - Deep Purple (Matte)
Price: $ 16 / € 19 (Limited Edition)
* Flaming Rose - True Red (Creme)
Price: $ 12 / € 14,50
The MAC x Nasty Gal collection will be available online and in stores on 4 December 2014. I've also read that the collection will be available at select international locations in February 2015 (first date is for USA only), but I will have to double check that.
Off to the second collaboration!
Move over, Rihanna! MAC has chosen another (scandalous / rebellious) singer to be the face of their Viva Glam-campaign. Introducing... MAC Viva Glam x Miley Cyrus! You can say whatever you want about the girl that was Hannah Montana once, but everyone who supports a good cause gets a special place in my heart. We all know what the Viva Glam-line is all about, but here's a little reminder:
"Every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV / AIDS."
HIV and AIDS are still taboo and / or an unknown for a lot of people, so kudos to MAC for raising awareness about this subject every year again.
That being said, Miley Cyrus will be replacing Rihanna as the Viva Glam spokesperson:
"Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink lipstick and matching lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Debuts early 2015."
I already know that the lipglass is not my cup of tea; glittery, sticky stuff on my lips is just really not my thing. I do like the color of the lipstick, but I'm not sure if it will match my pale skintone, so I'll have to wait until it hits the store so that I can examine it up close. However, Miley is kinda pale herself, so who knows...
* Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipstick - Hot Pink (Amplified)
Price: $ 16 / € 19
* Viva Glam Miley Cyrus Lipglass - Hot Pink With Sparkling Pearl
Price: $ 15 / € 18
The MAC Viva Glam x Miley Cyrus collection will be available online and in stores on 22 January 2015 (North-America) and on 12 February 2015 (internationally).
