MAC x Giambattista Valli Will Amp Up Your Makeup Color Palette This Summer

When it comes to bold lipstick, MAC ranks high in the makeup world. The brand's colors are always on point, but the summer MAC collaboration with Giambattista Valli is taking the color palette to new heights. The Paris-based designer's use of color and texture is the perfect fit for the legendary cosmetics brand and makes for a winning summer collaboration.

The designer, who has dressed stars from Amal Clooney to Rihanna, has partnered with MAC at runways shows for a decade and is celebrating by releasing five bold-colored matte lipsticks. The collection, launching July 9th, also includes a high-gloss product that instantly amps up each color. This line truly is the best of both worlds.

The lipstick colors range from fair pink to vampy aubergine to make for a symphony of perfect shades. You can easily go from day to night with colors inspired by Valli's very own color swatches from his collection. MAC x Giambattista Valli also has super practical packaging — each lipstick features packaging that matches the color of the product, so it's visible from the bottom of a purse.

Valli told Yahoo!, "We thought it would be nice to have a collaboration and do something impactful. Lipstick can really almost change a personality or the face of a woman. My collections are always colorful. It’s my signature point." That being said, I'll take one of each!

The only problem with the line is trying to choose a color. Guess I'll have to opt for all five!
