Emanuel Ungaro Collection is now available online! Are you getting anything? We’ve heard some confusing launch dates for in-stores, but perhaps with the website getting it up today, then Thursday will then be the launch day.

Also, here’s a hint: type in “RED” in the search box. You’ll see a lot of the holiday sets, palettes, etc. show up :) Those darling Adoring Carmine lip sets are $34.50, unfortunately for me. Maybe I can convince myself one is enough. (Likely story.) Halloween Face Charts are up, too — WITH photos of the face chart on real models.

Today, WWD had an interesting article/interview posted with the head designer of Emanuel Ungaro, Esteban Cortazar. He told WWD that he fell in love with makeup as an early age, going to his first MAC store at just ten years old.

“I knew this was a cool place because I saw all the amazing fun colors, glitter and girls with blue hair running around with outrageous makeup on their faces,” said Cortazar. “I used to have them dress me up for Halloween all the time.”

For fall, Cortazar teamed up with MAC to create a limited edition launch of products in the Emanuel Ungaro collection. In the interview… Continue reading →
