Giambattista For MAC Is Here After A Year-Long Wait, And The Colorful Hues Are Perfect For The Rest Of Summer And Early Fall

Ah—summer—nights are longer, outdoor seating becomes a thing, and things come in full bloom. Including lipstick, like Giambattista for MAC, which has finally launched! After a year-long wait, the five shades are finally available for purchase. You heard right—get your a** in the car, on the subway, hell, get on your two feet and get the matte lipstick that'll up your lip game.

Giambattista told, "I'm very well known for dresses, no? And I thought it was very nice, the idea of dressing your lips," when they first announced the partnership. He continued on, saying, "For a creative person, collaborating can be frustrating because you feel that you're limited or stuck within someone else's ideas, but with MAC it was 100 per cent freedom and 100 per cent support just to make my idea become a reality, to pull out my flowers and my sense and my emotion and put it into the colour."

It looks like his creative freedom paid off, since Twitter fans have been seriously waiting, saying "Waited till midnight for the MAC giambattista collection to go live...still waiting. All a girl wants is lipstick," and "Two more sleeps 'til MAC Giambattista Valli!" He's definitely garnering some attention!

With five colors—pale white pink, rich yellow red, dark cherry, yellow bright peach, and hot pink—you've basically got the perfect summer color palette. Plus, they're all matte, giving an unexpected, cool-girl twist. Should you want the extra shine, though, a sheer pearly gloss can also be purchased. Pucker up, cause this collection is near perfection.
