Prabal Gurung for MAC Cosmetics Is Golden, Glorious, Glam, And Bound To Sell Out In Seconds

MAC's limited edition collaborations with fashion designers or other (pop) cultural icons, from Rihanna to Miley Cyrus to Miss Piggy, are always an event for beauty junkies and makeup addicts. The latest MAC designer collaboration is with Prabal Gurung and it's a golden, it's gilded, and it's a glorious range that is bound to sell out before you get your foot in the door of a MAC boutique or near a MAC counter.

The brand does these partnerships often throughout the year, with the MAC x Rocky Horror pairing blowing our minds earlier this fall. But the frequency never dilutes my excitement for a new MAC x insert-designer-name-here mashup.

MAC x Prabal Gurung is everything. It hits counters on November 26 and is available through December 24, so it arrives just in time for pre-Black Friday shopping and will be avail up to last-minute holiday chaos. It'll be available online on November 20.

For this partnership, MAC ditched its signature matte black cases, which are recyclable as part of their Back to MAC program, in favor of glam gold casing. You won't want to return or recycle these, as they are works of art. They can be collectible or even reusable, if you're skilled at de-potting makeup.

Light English Red Lipglass

It’s called Light English Red, but this lipglass is actually a nude-pink. Confusing, sure, but definitely super pretty.

Light English Red Lipstick

Red lipstick doesn’t usually work for me, but this red might, since, well, it’s not even red at all. It’s a pretty, confusingly monikered pink. But seriously, how amaze is the gold packaging, with the Prabal Gurung named stamped on the side?!

Bronzing Powder In Matte Brown

A pasty pallor in winter and at holiday parties is no fun! Warm up with a little dusting of bronzer but don’t overdo it. Just a touch will do the trick.

Square Handled Buffer

Your products and their cases can be luxe, golden, and beautiful, and make you feel like a goddess when they are in your hands. However, you will truly look like a goddess only when you use the right tools to apply them.
