MAC Cosmetics and Nasty Gal each have a rich and respective history of making their own rules, as opposed to playing by or even breaking the pre-existing standards and expectations, in the intersecting and symbiotic worlds of makeup, retail, and fashion. So it’s no shock that the two titans have partnered up for a MAC and Nasty Girl lipstick range that includes a glossy, flame-hued nail polish and is on counters on December 4. MAC is the #GIRLBOSS of makeup, while Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso is the alpha #GIRLBOSS, essentially the Beyonce of her world. So yes, this collabo was one of those "Only a matter of time" situations that has come to fruition.
MAC x Nasty Gal offers a trio of winter-ready, statement-making, look-at-my-pucker lipsticks that stun, run, and gun. No, really!
These colors are bold, rich, and draw the eye, so they are not for shy, blend-in-the-walls-of-the-office girls. They are for daring fashion lovers, Nasty Gals, and #GIRLBOSSES whose chosen lip color are as fierce and as important as the words and wisdom that come out of the very mouths sporting these come hither shades.
But make no mistake. These shades are not just about sex appeal or "Look at the female exec with pretty lips!" The colors are strong and the wearer will exude a confidence that will command the attention of everyone —subordinates, assistants, co-workers, colleagues on equal footing, friends, and more—in the room.
Yep, every color is totally boss.
Here's Stunner, the matte, bombshell red that could have been made for a modern day Marilyn Monroe. I bet Taylor Swift, Rita Ora, and Gwen Stefani, the queens of red lips, would stock up on this statement shade.
Ladies, allow me to introduce you to Runner, a Bordeaux-like burgundy that will no doubt look flawless on the lips of porcelain-skinned gals.
And this is Gunner, a deep purple, like the band. I want to see Lupita Nyong'o wear this, even though she's frontin' Lancome right now. Rihanna is also a MAC girl, as the face of VIVA Glam, but she could easily pull this shade off, too.
Once you paint your pout, don't skip your nails. Flaming Rose is a cherry red lacquer ripe for fingers and toes. Red is unforgettable, so ditch the clean, doesn't-show-chips, basic neutral shade and rock this as you tap, tap, tap away on your mobile devices. A #GIRLSBOSS always need to be plugged in to her empire and she can't do it with meek nail colors.
And no, my first name ain't baby! It's Janet, Miss Jackson if you're Nasty!
