MAC x Star Trek Collection
MAC x Star Trek Collection

I have a sneak peek of a sneak peek featuring MAC x Star Trek Collection, as I received a few pieces from the launch, but there are several more products releasing (about double what you see here) that I don’t have. I’m waiting to get official promotional imagery, and once I have that, I’ll post info about all the shades, but the pertinent details are: pre-sale for attendees of Comic Con right now, available online August 25th and in-stores September 1st (North America) at select locations. The collection features matte black packaging with a metallic silver Star Trek logo with the same style for the boxes.

Charlotte Tilbury Liv It Up Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish.
