MAC is the new black...

New from MAC Cosmetics is a line called MAC's Style Black Collection, which as you might guess from the name, is an all-black line.

The collection will include black lipstick, nail polish, eye shadow, eyeliner and even exfoliants.

Interesting concept… but I wonder how many people will go for the black lipstick. Nail polish and eye shadow yea… but lipstick? I just don't know about that one. But the collection does actually look quite stunning, apart from the lipstick... and I’m excited to see how girls will be incorporating this look into their makeup style!

We have been seeing this look of dark lips with thin and sometimes non-exsistant eyebrows in countless magazine spreads for a while now… so it only makes sense to make it available for the rest of the women in the world to try.

Alittle frightened by the black on black on black? No worries... even though it’s dubbed the Style Black Collection, it does actually feature different shades of black, from true black to black with gold, silver, and purple pearl.

For all of you who are brave enough to go this bold, it will be available September September 24th, 2009 (U.S. Release) and October 2009 (International Release Date) in MAC stores. Enjoy!
