WWD has an article about the upcoming Fafi for MAC launch…

[Babier says] “Fafi wasn’t involved in developing the makeup, but her work inspired it. The idea, really, was a young-at-heart feeling – toned-down skin, a pretty, girly mouth and colorful eyes. The colors are playful with a sophisticated twist, and they’re sheer and buildable so you can control the effect.”

The collection – whose muse is “a nymphet with a Ph.D. in passion,” Gager said – includes six lipsticks, four Lipglasses, two eye shadow quads, six eye shadow Paint Pots, black eyeliner, two kohl pencils, black mascara and two blushes, as well as three Fafinette dolls, two makeup cases, a tote bag, a T-shirt and a scarf. Colors include blue-pink lipsticks and Lipglasses, dirty purple and bright aqua eye shadows and coral blushes.

Good news for collectors and fans: dolls and totes will be at freestanding stores, select Nordstroms, and online; scarves will only be available via MAC stores as well as online, while t-shirts will be an online exclusive. The online microsite for Fafi will go live February 11th. Fafi herself will appear February 13th 4-6 pm at Henri Bendel.

Sometimes the internet is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?  I bring you these sneak peek photos of Dazzleglass, a new gloss formulation by MAC, slated for late April/May release from an eBay seller.  These may or not be the official names, as they may be working names (temporary names that are sometimes later changed), but the seller is reputable and known for having products before launches from time to time, so it would appear that these are legitimate.

  • Baby Sparks Hot, cool pink
  • Steppin’ Out Hot bright pink
  • Spanking Rich Dark fuchsia
  • Pleasure Principle Shimmery white
  • Sugarrimmed Cool shimmery pink
  • Ms. Fizz Bright purple fuchsia
  • Money, Honey Berry pink-red
  • Love Alert Bright red
  • Like Venus Shimmery purple
  • Funtabulous Deep purple-blue
  • Comet Blue Shimmery blue with purple undertones
  • Bare Necessity Peachy with blue shimmer
  • Date Night Shimmery maroon
  • Glamour OD Coral red with shimmer

The seller mentioned there were thirteen shades in total, but I only caught eleven when I was viewing (guess others must have snatched up the other two auctions?).

Just beauty news I happened by this morning…

MAC on @ Backstage Beauty

  • “This season, a big focus for product development is on skin. The M.A.C PRO Team will be sampling a new hydrating foundation with a unique cream gel technology, along with an innovative loose powder that are sure to become backstage staples. Also being tested backstage is a new lipstick formulation that delivers color, shine and moisture, with a buildable coverage. M.A.C aims to launch the products tested backstage to consumers in Winter 2008 or Spring 2009.” Source

Sephora in the UK again?

  • “According to press reports, the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned perfumery has been in talks with Marks & Spencer with an eye to opening Sephora shop-in-shops.  If that happens, it would mark Sephora’s return to the U.K. after it shuttered its nine perfumeries there in 2005.” Source
