  1. chuarmk

    Louis Vuitton

  2. I would absolutely love to see what Betsey Johnson & MAC would come up with!!

  3. Arika BH

    Rihanna and MIA!!! Im a huge admirer of both of these ladies style, talent and beauty. They have a fearless adventurous style and with their gorgeous darker skin tones, it would be a great color collection! There are so many possibilities in a collaboration with them.

  4. I think Vivienne Westwood would be awesome! :)

  5. Damien Hirst: for his use of colour, and provocateur nature.
    Marilyn Manson: for rocking the boy in make-up look.
    Emily Strange: for those who can’t do cutesy Hello Kitty.
    Grace Jones: so iconic she predates the word “fierce”
    Gareth Pugh: so hip it hurts
    Patricia Field: we love the outfits she puts together… could she do the same for our make-up?
    Betty Boop: I’d put my name down on the waiting list for Betty red lipstick and eyelashes

  6. Mien

    I’d love to see another Disney collab, like the TLC’s we had a while ago, but this time around it should be a complete Disney collection, so cute! I’m huge Stitch fan(Lilo & Stitch), I also love Nijntje (Miffy in English countries) but I don’t think those characters will make it to a MAC compact, lol!

    As for designers… I love the collabs, but I usually haven’t even heard of them before their collaborations, just not really into high end fashion/couture. Although I love watching Project Runway 😉

    I do think P!nk, Gwen Stefani and Janice Dickenson would be very interesting for some amazing icon collection =)

  7. zoila

    Andy Warhol-style collection
    Or Edie Sedgwick inspired collection

    • Ilaria

      I’d love another pop art collection but they already did one inspired by Andy Warhol art and one about Edie Sedgwick… maybe they could do one about Nico or International Velvet.
      I like the idea of Betsey Johnson.

  8. Tina

    Gwen Stephani and her Harujaku girls!

  9. hannah

    i second the MIA idea! i ♥ her!!

    i would love to see a Lady Gaga collection!

  10. sophielou

    Ha, that’s so funny. We all have similar ideas…that must say something!
    I was thinking Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood…Gareth Pugh would be kind of crazy! I saw him once at Boombox in London wearing a very large black garbage bag type outfit, so I can only imagine what a makeup collection with him would be like!?

  11. Porcelain

    I’d love to see a retro comics/pop art inspired collection!

  12. TT

    Betty and Veronica from Archie and the gang

  13. Jenn

    i would love a gwen stefani collection

  14. MissTiss

    Good idea!!^^ I also love the Betsey Johnson idea.

    Marvel – I’d love a superheroes line.
    The Muppets – just because I love them.

    I think an Olsen Twins collaboration could be interesting (don’t shoot me).

  15. Michelle

    As far as fashion, I would love a Marc Jacobs or Zac Posen collabo.

    As far as cartoon characters I would like them to team up with Jem! That would be truly outrageous!

  16. Juliekitten

    Matthew Williamson for a tropical collection.

    Or a Japanese Geisha/Cherry Blossom etc. collection.

  17. Marvel or Disney as previous posts wrote would be awesome!!!
    I would also like a couture line with LV, Gucci, Prada or another exlusive brand.

  18. I’m definitely in agreement with the Grace Jones, Vivienne Westwood, and Betsey Johnson ideas! Especially Grace Jones in an icon collection—do you know how FIERCE that would be? LOL

  19. styrch

    They should collaborate with Ms. Piggy.

  20. I think a ‘Jem and the Holograms’ limited edition would be awesome! Obviously it would never happen but I bet the colors would be really nice!

    • Amanda

      I didn’t even think of this.
      It could happen, it would be pretty rockin’ and I would be the biggest sucker.. hmm *dreams of this collection*

  21. piggles

    Disney Princesses!!

  22. carriespooner

    Was there already a Factory Girl launch that tied in with the movie?

    I like the Warhol idea but it’s pretty pedestrian at this point..

    Mac and Bowie would be sooo good but I doubt that would fly with Iman since she has her own cosmetics.

    I actually agree with the Marilyn Manson post. I think he’s fantastic and should be in movies. He should be the new Joker! Definately an overlooked icon/talent. IMHO

    Poor Dita.. that would be bad…

    Vivian Westwood please.

  23. [email protected]

    I’d take Kylie Minogue or M.I.A.

  24. Tami

    I am totally lovin the Grace Jones and Betty and Veronica ideas. But I would absolutely love to see a Jem collection. I think it would be truly outrageous!!!:-D

  25. jess

    I think a Dita Von Teese collection would be great, and I’m TOTALLY behind a Betty Boop collaboration. I’m imagining really cute packaging, crazy falsies and intense red lipsticks. And a Jem collection? I’d totally be there – I can imagine all the glitter and fun.

    I also think a Jenna Jameson collection might be fun, but maybe that’s just me.

  26. Maria

    A Spanish designer and painter named Jordi Lavanda, his desings are beutiful, stylish, really cool.
    You can google his name and find some of his drawing and clothes, purses…

  27. fatsheep :)

    love love love her!!
    i wanted 2 say spongebob,,but..hahaha
    quite weird i know…
    just coz i love spongebob,,,:P
    sorry that i m kinda weird and childish,,,=[

  28. Katherine

    Jem & the Holograms, all the way!

  29. Tekoa

    Alice Cooper!Can you see the rocker chick-goth theme?

  30. I think they should do an anime collection, big on eyes and bright lips, I’m thinking oranges, pinks and greens.

  31. In all honesty, and not to sound too into myself or anything, but I’d kill to collaborate with MAC, even though it’ll never happen. You know, I really just don’t want to see many more celebrity collections and I’m just really fed up with it. I think it’s time that someone new stood up with fresher ideas, someone to stand for a new generation, someone edgy, someone creative, someone who isn’t afraid to create Chaos.

    And in all honesty, that’s what I would want to help create; Chaos. Screw the never-ending ‘Old Hollywood’ looks that never seems to die, I want to create a line of makeup that would be so bold, fresh and wearable that it would appeal to all and be available to anyone and everyone. Makeup to me, just means happiness and confidence and I want to give that to them.

    Sorry for the rant, I’m in a writing mood. XP

  32. Emma

    LV should be cool mayby Gucci if you think about a designer.

    I would lile to see a dance or ballet colletion. I now there were some but not in Europe.

  33. Disney. Ohh tink and cute little names for te products. And I like Ed Hardy stuff, that might be pretty cool.

  34. DevilishDoll

    I’d like to see a Little Mermaid collection with lots of blues, greens, and teals, and bring back Comet Blue Dazzleglass. I’d also like to see a Disney Fairies collection, with separate items for Tinkerbell, Iridessa, Silvermist, Rosette, Fawn and Vidia, Vidia could have darker colors like purples, black, grays, etc. And the whole collection would have lots of shimmery, glittery stuff. I can’t really think of any real people I would want, although I agree that Marilyn Manson could be interesting, I’m not sure that it would sell too well.

  35. Shayla

    I’m liking the Marilyn Manson idea…

    I also think something along the lines of the “Sexy Side of Vampires” or something would be neat…really vampy, dramatic colors that can still be wearable or toned down :)

  36. Disney princesses would be super cute! Cinderella in blues and Aurora in pinks and snowwhite in navy and red!

  37. kat

    rachel zoe or patricia field!

  38. Kaylabella

    Betsey Johnson would definately be amazing.
    It would also be cool to see a collaboration with Christian Siriano,
    like something really dark and edgy ;D

  39. Rachel

    I totally agree with Bestey Johnson 😛

  40. Sugarplum

    Siouxsie Sioux! Please. Please. Please.

    Also wouldn’t mind Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese (not together, of course), or something vampire related. :/

  41. Shyan

    Alice in Wonderland
    Juicy Couture
    I think Jefree Star or Amanda Le’pore would be amazing as well :]

  42. kat

    I love Betsey Johnson, she’s just to fun and flashy! I tpersonaly disagree with the disney princesses/cartoony ones above. I mean each to their own and if others like it I’d be glad if they would make it for them but I find it sort of tacky to be honest…. MAC is a higher end brand and I personaly feel that some of these collabs are fun but they shouldn’t be the focus of future collections? The annual spring Barbie/FAFI/HK seems to do the trick for me :)

  43. Kharina

    Those are my top 3 picks.

  44. jess

    betsey johnson, pat field, david bowie, disney–you’d have to be careful not to make it cheesy, gwen stefani, I’d like to see another barbie collection too.

  45. Joanna

    I would love any of the following:
    1. Betsy Johnson
    2. Little Mermaid
    3. Betty Boop

  46. nikki

    how about a collaboration with sex and the city considering there’s a sequel coming out soon. i also like the betsey johnson idea. also, what about madonna? she’s such a fashion icon and they would probably come out with a killer collection for her.

    • Anonymous

      I totally agree, Sex and the City would be an awesome collaboration. I like the Juicy Couture idea also.

  47. Brenda

    I would love a Vivienne Westwood collaboration personally. However, Disney, Betsy Johnson, and Betty Boop sound interesting as well.

  48. Anna

    Vivienne Westwood was the first thing that popped into my head but the comic book one sounds pretty cool too (although I’m really a DC girls xP).

  49. I would love to see some kind of hip hop collabo….maybe Eve or lil Kim

  50. Lisa

    Betsey Johnson, & the hip-hop collabo’s tight–maybe a brand like Married to the Mob or Hellz Bellz

  51. alexis

    Alive in wonderland

  52. Kacie

    Betsey Johnson will be my number one answer to this question until I can buy the ENTIRE collection that will certainly result some day.

    That said, I’d love a Gwen Stefani collection or Ed Hardy too.

  53. Fairy

    Pucci or Madonna

  54. Vee

    I would love to see a collections re: natural/ethereal or based on 40’s movie starlets (glam, girl next door…..)

  55. Julie

    I would love to see Roberto Cavallli, Swarovski and Ru Paul. I am fed up with Westwood, she has already ruined several Wolford collections.
    Emilio Pucci could be fun.

    I love the Betsey Johnson, Disney, Gwen L.A.M.B. suggestions, they are great.

  56. I agree I’m loving the MIA idea, Disney princesses, Gwen Stefani and Betsey Johnson. I hope somebody from Mac reads this page for ideas lol.

  57. Ooohh, Gwen Stefani would be awesome! I’d also love to see an Alice in Wonderland collection!

  58. makeupgirrrrrrrrrrl

    winnie the pooh!! i think they could really play up with some of the characters and who doesnt love him?!?

  59. betsey Johnson or even Pat Benetar or Blondie.

  60. Ann

    I’m the odd ball, I would love a M & M or candy themed collection or a Go Green collection.

  61. Niki

    I dont think anybody has said this one but I like Ed Hardy!

  62. hi

    Hmm.. maybe a line of makeup created specifically for ethnic people, like African Americans – a skincare line for their typically dry skin, a color collection to add much-needed contrast to their dark skin. Dark-skinned people often have a hard time with makeup because a lot of pretty colors just blend in with their skin, like chocolate browns and blacks, and brights may look odd. I know! A country-themed collection, like Indian-inspired makeup or maybe even South African. The colors from both of these would be beautiful and earthy!

  63. tamia

    i think a vargas girl/retro themed collection would be pretty.

  64. msviolet

    Betsey Johnson (probably the 50th person to say that)
    Emilio Pucci
    Lilly Pulitzer
    Kat Von D (if she hadn’t already started her own!!!)
    Maybe something like a MAC Classic Hollywood/Pinup collection with ladies like:
    Greta Garbo
    Jean Harlow
    Marilyn Monroe
    Lena Horne
    Grace Kelly
    Bettie Page
    Rita Hayworth

  65. vero

    Tokidoki!!!! that would be my first pick gwen stefani second and an alice in wonderland collab would be beautiful

  66. Shanel

    oh & I would also love it if JUICY COUTURE did a collab. w/MAC :)

  67. Lexi

    Oh yes, Gwen Stefani would be cute. They could do a Harajuku Girls theme!

    I always though a Powerpuff Girls collection would be adorable too. There could be like, three different quads with Greens, Blues and and Pinks and adorable packaging…

  68. CedriCeCCentriC

    Tarina Tarantino !!!

  69. Mele

    Disney Princesses!
    hah! Glad someone else said it before me cause it’s what 1st came to mind.

    Also I 2nd/3rd/whatever number we’re at Sex & the City. I think that would be a HOT seller!

    Harry Potter line anyone? lots of sparkles, wand & broomstick makeup brushes, think of all the cool names for the makeup! Afterall, Hermione IS growing up and wearing more makeup!

  70. Eve’s collection was C-shock and I soooo missed out on it soooo they should redo C-Shock. LOL.


  71. Claudia

    Amy Winehouse (LOL j/k!). I think for the Icon collection, it would be cool to have Pink, Rihanna, or some glam actresses like Scarlett Johansen or Kate Winslet. I think it would also be cool to get Michelle Obama!!

  72. Lisa

    I agree with…….
    Betsey Johnson
    Keshia Cole
    Dita Von Teese
    Gwen Stefani
    Lady Gaga
    How about Marc Jacobs or Monique Lhullier

  73. Ceci

    I think a MAC collab w/Gwen Stefani and the Harajuku Girls would be hot. Maybe bring Katy Perry (or Stefani – someone with retro style) and Rihanna (or someone with similar style to hers since she’s w/Cover Girl) together or something for a MAC collab, like an opposites (past v. future beauty) collection (Katy: 40’s glam; Rihanna: futuristic/punkish rock glam).

  74. Camellia

    betsey johnson, lady gaga, gwen stefani, &something vintage-like (:

  75. Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs, Marilyn Manson, or…I dare say…a collaboration with a band, maybe? I’d love to see what makeup Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age) could come up with. xD

  76. Oh! And I HAVE to go along with Rihanna. I know she’s with Covergirl, but if she could weasel her way out of that contract, I’d go crazy. I’m a huge fan of her. (I hope she gets better soon; her birthday’s on the 20th!)

  77. TT

    The fabulous diva herself, Miss Piggy

  78. Karla

    I’m into old art so what about van goh or monet? pretty spring pastels…or mid summernight dream with navys, dark greens and night sky colors. OR the sunflower painting he did… it could be sooo pretty. I like a garden theme too tho. Antique style packages with a new twist. Could be fun. But i’m feeling the vintage/art/goth look lately. Being so tired makes my creative juices start to flow.

  79. Tierra

    I think that MAC and Tokidoki should collabo because Smashbox didn’t do to good of a job. Tokidoki is a lot more fun and colourful than the way Smashbox depicted it. if you havent heard of Tokidoki Christine here’s the site

  80. Naz

    Everyone loves doing an arabic inspired eye makeup look. Who doesn’t love to look at their pictures! So it would have to be Bassam Fattouh, hands down!

  81. aziajs

    God, you guys have great ideas! I, personally, would love to see MAC do a collection with The Blonds ala Heatherette. It would be sooooo hot! They have worked with MAC before (Hello Kitty couture dresses, Fergie’s Viva Glam ads) and I think it would be a great collabo.

  82. Agree with the Betsey Johnsons here. Maybe Marc Jacobs would be great as well. Maybe he’d do a Miss Marc loves MAC or something

  83. kristie

    First thing that came to mind was Sex in the City. They can release a line for each lady..Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. Also thought of Christian Louboutin and his signature red sole =)

  84. Virginia

    i reckon a KISS collection! haha, get the guys on board…. not

  85. Celine

    Deff. Marc Jacobs!

    and an Andy Warhol type of collection.. the packaging would be pretty pop-art-ish and bright.

  86. Ami

    Rainbow Brite!

    It could be really bright make up and funky designs!

  87. Lucy

    Emily the strange

  88. I would love to see a collection of high performance products from MAC specifically geared toward women of color and Asian women with monolids.

  89. Yvonne

    I agree also with Betsey Johnson, but what I’d really like to see is a John Galliano inspired collection.

  90. Leah

    I’d love to see a “Models for MAC” collaboration similar to the designer lines they have. Each model could have their own color and product. Kate Moss’s could be some “white powdered” eyeshadow lol. But really I would love to see an Agyness Deyn, Du Juan, Chanel Iman, and Coco Rocha do a line of colors collectively.

    Also, I think a Transformers limited edition could be amazing with collapsable e/s quads and each piece of the collection could snap together. Similarly to HK, they have good kitty and bad kitty, they could have Optimus Prime and Megatron that could be built into a robot once you bought that “Set”! The colors would be really bright and fun too!

  91. Leah

    As farfetched as it sounds, I would love a Quentin Tarantino-themed collection. It could be based off of resevior dogs be Ms. Pink and Ms. Brown (minus the ear thing lol).

    DAFT PUNK for MAC would be pure INSANITY as well! How fun how fun!

    MMMM…I could go on for days 😉

  92. Leah

    Ms. Pacman would be fun….as you can probably tell, I love bright colors haha.

  93. Kylie Minogue
    Alice in Wonderland
    Marc Jacobs
    Dita Von Teese

  94. Dawn

    I really love the ideas so far; MIA; Betty Boop; vampires/goth; Disney Princess collection

    I would also love to See MAC with:
    Janet Jackson
    Alicia Keys
    ***Because I am a huge comic freak so I’d love love love to see DC comics lady heroines and Femme Fatales- Catwoman, wonder woman, Poision Ivy, Super girl etc. I think that would be AWESOME!

  95. Tammy

    Christian Audigier !!!!

    Love the Miss Piggy and Betty Boop idea too!

  96. katie

    i agree with those who said vivienne westwood! i want that orb on my mac makeup lol
