This is a stunning new MAC collaboration. MAC Guo Pei is a partnership with Guo Pei, China’s most esteemed haute couturier – google Rihann’a’s dress at the Met Gala. It is such a different collection, and actually uses fabric in its packaging which while isn’t 100% practical is certianly 100% gorgeous. This colour collection is inspired by Guo Pei’s “garden of the soul” theme and it is like a beautiful fantasy.

The packaging is so unique. You don’t often see textiles used in this way and although it could be a bit of a pain for getting dirty, it is just beyond charming.

At the moment I only have one sample from the collection and I absolutely love it! Ethereal Orchid is a beautiful coral shade and I just adore the way it looks.

Sadly, I don’t think it’s one I will carry in my handbag, as much as I’d love to show it off, I think it could end up very grubby indeed. Oh well, such is life – you can’t have it all.
