Q&A WITH MISS PIGGY

Tell us about what it was like collaborating with M·A·C on a collection that captures your iconic beauty look.

Oh I adore collaboration—especially when everyone is there to listen to what I have to say and do exactly what I tell them to. And those fabulously talented people at M·A·C did just that. They were more than willing to listen, learn and be inspired by moi, so they could get the pink eye shadow just right, the flutter of the lashes just perfect, the texture of the eye liner just so. Best of all, they did all the work while I did all the talking! Très fantastique!

What was it like working with James Gager, Senior Vice President and Creative Director, and Jennifer Balbier, Senior Vice President for Global Product Development?

Ah yes, James and Jennifer…..Uh, what were those names again? Gager and Balbier? Sorry, not ringing a bell. But if I met them and they were important, I love them and can’t wait to see them again. You see, Jimmy and Jennie as I called them, seemed to understand moi’s very soul. And best of all, they understood moi’s desire to make the collection worthy of comparison with other iconic M·A·C “diva” collections (Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper’s Viva Glam campaigns and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday) while inevitably surpassing all of them.

Tell us about your typical beauty routine when you’re on set. Does it differ from your every day beauty routine?

At home and on the set, my beauty routine is the same. I sit in a chair while a squadron of stylists, manicurists, cosmetologists, hairologists and so forth hover around and make magic. Then, I open my eyes, look in the mirror and voila…perfection! The advantage of doing this on set is that someone else pays for it. How would you describe your style in your upcoming film, “The Muppets”? I play an editor at Vogue Paris, so naturally I had to wear the most au courant couture and meet all the top designers in the world. (Naturally, we hit it off like gangbusters. Trust moi, you haven’t partied til you’ve ridden in a cab down the Champs-Élysées singing show tunes with a passel of Parisian designers!) So, I would have to say that moi inspired designers who, in turn, designed clothes that captured the essense of moi. It’s a win-win all the around, n’est ce-pas?

Any style advice for your fans? Can anyone wear the products from the Miss Piggy inspired M·A·C collection?

You can’t be moi, but this is the next best thing. This collection is perfect for any skin tone, goes with any wardrobe choices…and will help vous find your personal style. To moi, style is all about having fun! You are you! Go for it! Get glam! Have fun! Laugh in the face of critics! Scoff at cynics! Chortle in front of rude people! You got it sister, so make the most of it! That is what this collection is all about – celebrating the absolute joy of being vous, embellished and enhanced by the magic of moi! (Ooh, that’s good. I should trademark that!) And remember, true beauty comes from loving yourself. So go ahead: love yourself. And if that proves a problem, might I suggest loving moi?

  1. Courtney

    That’s….it?

    • Gillian (AKA Munchy)

      umm seriously MAC? an entire collection of 3 items- only one being unique? Now im agitated. Coming out with 70 collections per season is one thing, but this is ridiculous.

      • Marie

        Thats exactly how I feel LOL! One eyeshadow? They could have at least gave us one of each thing needed for a complete look.. Blush Lipstick Lipglass or Cremesheen, Beauty Powder, Liner etc. HOPEFULLY they made several hundreds of eyeshadows so everybody could have a chance to get one, but knowing them, they haven’t.

  2. Dude, Muppets are big in the beauty world this year!

  3. Tara s

    I am actually glad that this I

  4. Judy

    I had hoped there may be more to this collection. I may p/u the eyeshadow, but it depends on the swatches.

  5. Carrie Ann

    MAC and Miss Piggy–a match made in heaven. I love it! :)

  6. Avatar of Monique monique

    they should make a lip product based on her!
    with special packaging ;)

  7. That’s it??? Piggy deserves a big collection! she knows glamour like no one else!!

    • Ani_BEE

      I totally agree with you on that!

      • Thirded! I know it’s all a promo for the movie, but I was maybe at least hoping for her face on the packaging. Won’t be picking these up.

    • ccenger

      they could have done so much more! what’s with the boring packaging? yes, miss piggy has lovely eyelashes, but you could have her skin tone in eyeshadow form, lipstick, lip glass, CUTE packaging like the Barbie. Maybe even a makeup bag or pink brushes?

      i would prefer quality of collections over quantity :)

  8. Maureen

    Fingers crossed that the packaging is fun and amazing.

  9. Andrea

    hahahah she is trying to be sexy she is sooooooo cute. Love when she is grumpy is funny :)

  10. YES! Missy Piggy is my idol. I will be getting this!!

  11. Kim-Mary

    Love Miss Piggy, but only 3 items? Nah. This I can skip & save money for the other collections.

  12. Devi

    Skip. MAC is kinda late to the Muppets Game, and there’s nothing of interest here.

  13. Oh look MAC are doing another one-lipstick release & surprise surprise it’s a mid-tone pink. I’m so underwhelmed right now.

  14. Nancy

    I hope they expand the collection to include more products in the future.

    • Lark

      This is it. Collections come out then that’s it. BUT… There may not be special packaging but it is “Miss Piggy Pink”. The Bloggers Obsessions online only teeny collection did well enough.

  15. Avatar of milaxx milaxx

    What is with the muppet resurgence. Ms. Piggy is also going to be a guest judge on one of the Project Runway spin offs? Is this ll to promote the new movie?

  16. Yes, as I am a total Muppet tramp I am getting the eye shadow. I hope it’s the kind of bright pink shadow I wish MAC would make. Stars & Rockets is my HG pink but I want something more blue than violet.

    • mumtaza

      ha ha “Muppet tramp”. Sounds like a new fetish. I wish there was a lipstick, too. I, too, have hoped MAC would make a pink like this for a while. With you on that bigtime!

  17. Dana

    Love Miss Piggy! And she looks so modern in the pic <3

  18. I cant wait to see pics!

  19. Becca

    that’s it? and only online?? this isn’t a collection… I screamed when I saw miss piggy, and now all we get is an eyeshadow? I was hoping some pretty pink blushes and lipsticks and quads :’(

  20. Avatar of Melinda Mel

    This is a ridiculous collection.

  21. Amanda Dubs

    Thats it? I dont consider this a collection

  22. Dawn

    I hope that’s not all there’s going to be. I LOVE Miss Piggy!!! :)

  23. marcy

    when i first saw the title and promo pic i squealed, “NOOOO WAY!” cuz i love the Muppets… and then i realized the “collection” is 3 crappy products. MAC could’ve done so much better! what a let-down. =(

  24. Cmferrets

    Lol ,they should just call mac for miss piggy eyeshadow ! And that’s it ,cuz that’s all their is .:) I’m still getting it though ,just that one thing

  25. cloudburst

    I’m kind of surprized they didn’t do a lipstick.

  26. Natalie

    To me it makes sense that they didn’t do a lipstick since Miss Piggy doesn’t usually wear any. But why is the eyeshadow pink? I thought her signature eyeshadow colour was purple!

  27. I think MAC is trying to compete with the Balm’s Muppet palette. LOL.

  28. Avatar of artemis artemis

    miss piggy is what i call a NO-NO look :)) mid-tone-blue pink(frost)=gross. i was expecting more scary stuff haha

  29. Oh. My. God!!!!! I cannot WAIT to see this. MAC, you’ll probably never see this, but seriously, you better make this collection FABULOUS. I love Miss Piggy!!

    Btw, Hi Christine! Been reading your blog for ages and ages, but this is the firt time i’ve commented :)

  30. Alison

    I want makeup based on Kermit.

    “Its not easy being green” eyeshadow…

  31. I hope they add more items to this collection it seems so small.

  32. A-rOd

    thats it!!!! waste of a collection!!!!! I think Kim Kardashian should team up with MaC!!!!

  33. Adrianna Mendez

    Very interested in the eyeshadow!! I wish MAC would do a Betty Boop Collection *sigh*

    • Lark

      You do realize Betty Boop is a very very bad girl? A 1920s icon reduced to kiddies sneakers now but a total flapper when flapper was major social upheaval?
      All of which is exactly why MAC should do it. The hundredth anniversary of women having the vote is bearing down on us ladies. Chattel property no more- so are you reading MAC? We’ll want lead in collections to rioting in the streets post WW I.

  34. I hope this has pretty/new packaging.. or else I don’t think I will get this. It seems like MAC is trying to pull another Nicki Minaj Pink Friday over us.

  35. Cory Jabro Hernandez

    Love Miss Piggy!!!!!!!

  36. amanda

    I LITERALLY JUST SQUEALED TO MY BOYFRIEND, “MAC AND MISS PIGGY!!”

    aaaaaaah!!! amazing!

  37. Avatar of Amy Amy

    I will definitely be picking up the eyeshadow depending on Christine’s review. We all know MAC pinks are hit & miss (mostly miss, unfortunately…)

  38. kim

    i really dislike this idea. cross promotions are rarely cool and this one is particularly lame.

  39. Sara

    Wow.. Just wow! Really….? I really need to save up for this lol!

  40. Jaime

    WOW. MAC has reached an all-time low. They have ran out of ideas. I hope people wake up and stop buying this crap. Hopefully they’ll go under one day. I am so sick of these collections of the same stuff or just poor quality makeup. I’ll stick with what’s good, which isn’t MAC.

    • Jessie

      You’d think that they’d be able to come up with more products.. when I think of Miss Piggy, I think of lots of pinks, fun colors that would cater to people who like brights. But, alas, Mac seems to fall short..

  41. Nadia

    What a seemingly pointless collection.

  42. Imsi

    will wait for Christine’s review (:

  43. Ruby_00

    I’m so disappointed! I was expecting a big collection (or at least a shadow quad, blush and bronzer) with a special packaging! boohooo I’m so sad I’m definitely skiping this collection

  44. Avatar of Theresa Reese

    I thought this was a collection?

  45. Megan

    Raise your hand if you clicked through just for the interview with Miss Piggy.

    Anyone else? Anyone?

  46. Amanda

    Don’t worry, y’all- Mac has like 40 other collection coming out next month. I think MAC was inspired by Miss Piggy’s trademark eye makeup. I promise it’s gonna be okay.

  47. Coco72

    No lipstick? no special packaging? leave it!

  48. Glenda W.

    I was looking for a lipglass too :(

  49. They could have included a blush. She is known for her blushing cheeks.

  50. Gabriela

    That’s it??? Piggy deserves a big collection! she knows glamour like no one else!!

  51. Lydia L.

    Hmmm….not as excited as I got over Barbie and Hello Kitty…maybe the fact that I’m not a lover of pink eyeshadow…How bout something for the lips and cheeks in a piggy pink, MAC?

  52. Avatar of Bobbie Bobbie C.

    Wow…I was hoping for at least a lip product and special packaging…how do I even know its Miss piggy without special packaging????

  53. Tiffany C.

    I want that pink eyeshadow!!! And i think it’s crazy that people are always complaining that MAC has too many collections and that they’re too big but yet, when they release a simple, no fuss one people still complain!

  54. tm

    What a wasted opportunity. They could have had Pigs in Space Purple (a shadow, lipstick or gloss, maybe?), I Kissed A Frog, which could have been a green shadow or lipgloss with green reflects in it, Hi-Yaaah!, which might have been something deep blue or purple, since she seemed to say that a lot when beating up on Gonzo (who was dark bluish purple), etc. They also should have put a decal on the shadow like they did for the Villains collection.

  55. Dame Elizabeth

    I’ll defintely get the eyeshadow, I just WISH they’d done a beauty powder with her awesome face on it. That would be such a two fingers up to people who think of beauty as perfection not diversity.

  56. Maureen

    I’m surprised there’s no lipstick. Seriously, do enough people buy falsies to make this a profitable collection?

  57. Avatar of Chantale Macaddict

    I LOVE the interview with Miss Piggy! She’s just “too much””… full of herself (but in a cute way). Anywho, this so-called collection of only 3 items (2 of them already permanent) does not reflect in any way Miss Piggy’s personality!!!!
    Very lame and boring….
    Miss Piggy is flamboyant, navel-gazing, overly confident,a self-absorbed diva (like she should be Lol!). She would never only wear these 3 makeup items1 She would wear hot pink lipstick, or blue red, she would definitely be color-friendly makeup-wise. What an excuse to sell is all it is!!!
    Shame on you MAC!

  58. Carrie Ann

    So cute! I’m actually relieved it’s just an eye shadow. I’d have to stop myself from going too crazy with a whole Miss Piggy collection.

  59. Ashley

    I’m glad this is small. It’s enough to be cute, and MAC definitely doesn’t need another MAC Me Over-sized collection for a while…(although yeah, 40 more before the end of the year sounds like what to expect).

  60. Avatar of Melissa Melissa

    MAC and Miss Piggy and…Alice Cooper?

  61. We seriously don’t even get a fun glamorous lippy or even special packaging? I am so disappointed :(

  62. Courtney

    Would maybe be interested if Miss Piggy Pink were a lipstick. Gonna pass, but Miss Piggy is looking fierce in that photo.

  63. Daniela

    wooow really M.A.C!!! Thats everything!!! :( I was hoping for at least a lip color from miss piggy!!!

  64. Tempest Paige

    I wish the packaging was themed…

  65. magetha

    I was looking forward to special packaging. So disappointed :(

  66. Perla

    This promo pic looks like miss piggy meets kiss! lol im pretty sure this could’ve been a great collection if it only had more products instead of just one eyeshadow and im pretty sure it will be easily dupeable

  67. Melody

    Like everyone else, I am a bit disappointed that there is only one new color product in this launch. I wish it had been a pigment instead of a shadow. But it does look like a nice pink, so I’ll give it a swatch.

  68. Avatar of Chrissy Chrissy

    rofl That interview’s so funny and so is her description. “Icon. Actress. Supermodel. Chanteuse. Muse. Frog-o-phile. Cinema and television superstar nonpareil.” haha! I wonder who made that coat. Miss Piggy looks fierce in it!

  69. so bummed that its only 3 items, and only one is limited edition … whats up with that MAC?

  70. Esperanza

    This is totally ridiculous! Miss Piggy collection and there is no lipstick? no special packaging? I am so sick of MAC for real..that is why I no longer buy from them any more. They are just all about marketing that seems promising but never deliver anymore. They run out of ideas long ago..

  71. is this a joke?
    The only nice thing in this collection is the picture of miss Piggy. She is a Diva.

  72. Mariam

    I was just about to die when I read that there will be a Miss Piggy for MAC collection, but now I couldnt be more disappointed! Is this it??? I thought it would be a bigger collection and with glamorous packaging just like the To the beach collection and Venomous Villains collection! Is it really just three products in the original black packaging!?

  73. Chris

    Really! I was excited for this collection but was even more excited to see the packaging for the items and this is the collection along with no special packaging! SMH….

  74. Avatar of Diana queenfrostine

    No comment on the makeup, but how fab is her trench coat?

  75. My

    I’m torn! Part of me is PISSED that a. the collection is so small, b. its only one unique item, and c. they could have AT LEAST put it in a special Miss Piggy package! Then the other part of me is saying, Whew!, as my pocket will get a break on this one.

    Truth be told I LOVE MISS PIGGY, she was like my first favorite character as a child and she was so FAB! If the collection was the way I envisioned it in my head… I’d go mad! And BROKE!

  76. Serena

    The eyeshadow is super cute but I wish they had cute packaging and more then 3 items :/

  77. BethM

    Cool pink is right up my alley, and I’m really looking forward to this eyeshadow. I just hope there’s a free shipping code, as I really don’t like that it’s online only and I don’t want to pay shipping for one eyeshadow.

  78. brittany

    hmm okay mac so no lipstick because miss piggy has no lips? and no blush because she is already pink? i get it but i have lips and I’m not pink… sooo good try but really?? where is the rest?

  79. I cannot wait to get this!! :D

  80. mumtaza

    i will definitely be buying this eyeshadow because A) it’s named after Miss Piggy and B) I have been looking for a color like this for a while! (At least if it swatches true to description and pan.)
    I love Miss Piggy!!

  81. mumtaza

    the arms in the photo are way too thin though!! this is Miss Piggy we’re talking about. She is a piglet of size.

  82. Weak. The packaging doesn’t even look special. TheBalm knocked it out of the park with their Muppets Palette this fall, but this is just sad.

  83. Naheeda

    I expect more than that 3 items! No surprise if they plan to release like that!
    If its all, its their first time to flop!

  84. juliyaa

    wow no lipsticks? o well aha i guess that saves me money jaykay:P

    • Avatar of jamie Jamie

      I like the shadow color, but only 3 pieces in this so called “collection”?

    • Jessica

      Saves you money in your PIGGY bank? Get it? lol jk I know you do. As I ready your comment I actually read it as, “saves me money in my piggy bank” but then I realised you didn’t use those words exactly. I don’t know… I’m tired. I’m going to bed lol

  85. Lark

    It’s Holiday! This is a true stocking stuffer, or a gift to your sisters and friends. The lashes and eyeliner are stock and I already have them but “Miss Piggy Pink”? Gotta have it. Besides, what more would you do with it? The Muppets are on a whole pallet at some Sephora brand. A whole nother collection of just pink? Maybe something pearly. Maybe make me heave! Just get the joke, laugh, Love vous, buy one special shadow. How much Holiday make up do you need? You’d need to grow another head to wear all the stuff coming out already.

    It’s a fun little thing- get over it.

  86. Eileen

    Right…?? That’s it….!!?? It’s not even cute, so blah…

  87. Mattie

    I can’t understand how so many of you are complaing about the number of products being released with this ONLINE only launch. With all of the other things launching , we should be happy they took it easy on our wallets for this sub line. Besides if you really want that much more from this line, how about writing MAC and asking, they are one of the only cosmetic brands that thrive off of what their consumer wants and will typically listen! Just saying!

  88. MakeupJukiee

    What a joke!

  89. Kristin

    :( Miss Piggy deserves better than this!

  90. doll

    Seriously!?!?!?!? That diva has a 6 page layout in Instyle and they gave her that crap! It doesn’t even have her picture of name on it!!! They gave the Villian’s of Disney more then that! I’m outraged!!

  91. Avatar of Guadalupe VJNS

    I would have expected a collection of eye lashes and eye liners. Maybe they planned by phone and their call was dropped. It probably went something like this: “Creative Department? Ok, we’re going pink for Miss Piggy collection. We’re doing three …………(drop)” Disappointed. But the pink is pretty anyway.

  92. Manny S

    I gotta say I’m so disappointed in this collection. It’s obvious the Muppets are out there trying to cross promote with a bunch of different brands, but really? A lackluster eyeshadow and 2 re-promotes?? I don’t know if I’m mad at the Muppets or at MAC. The collaboration they did with OPI is AMAZING and even though I’m not the biggest Muppets fan, I’m definitely picking up pretty much every color. Unfortunately this just has zero appeal to me. They’re definitely counting on Miss Piggy fans to push this collection, but they’re far from winning anyone else over.

  93. Jessica

    I really don’t get the fascination with anything Muppets. MAC did a really great job with Barbie, Fafi, Icon collections but Hello kitty, Wonder woman, Muppets are just plain cheesy.

    Having Miss Piggy’s glamour/beauty essentials like a compact (mirror alone or Beauty Powder)(2), blush (2), lipstick (2), shadow (or quad even!), lashes, polish, brow pencils, liners, and mascara would’ve made for a better collection :)

  94. Kathryn McCurley

    Just searched for Miss Piggy Pink on http://www.maccosmetics.com and there is no such thing. I’m a bit disappointed as I have been waiting for this release online, which was supposed to happen today. Did something change?

  95. Ava

    Right.. not even lipstick or gloss?

  96. Ava

    Right! Not even lipstick or gloss?? ReallY?

  97. Alison

    These have been released in the UK today :)
