I’ve just heard on the grapevine that Giambattista Valli is collaborating with MAC and bringing out a gorgeous lipstick collection for summer 2015!
…Ok I’ll admit it, I had no idea who Giambattista Valli was until now, and I’m sure many of you guys didn’t either! As soon as I saw this lipstick collection though I was pretty interested to find out! Giambattista Valli is a Paris based designer, who will be celebrating ten years of his self-titled fashion house next year.
“I’m very well known for dresses, no? And I thought it was very nice, the idea of dressing your lips,” says Valli. “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 percent freedom and 100 percent 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 color,” Valli took inspiration from his past collections to create a lipstick collection including shades that would flatter women no matter their complexion.
The range covers the palest sixties-esque pink to a deep and daring plum. There’s also a coral-orange shade, a vibrant pink and intense red. The lipsticks all have a matte finish and fantastic colorful tubes to match the bullet, which I love! “The best thing about makeup is that a lipstick can really change your look. If you never wear colour on your lips and then one day you wear red, everyone just goes ‘wow!’” Valli exclaimed. “I made these for a woman with personality, a woman who lives her life and isn’t afraid to wear colour and isn’t afraid to kiss!”
I love the concept and I love the look of these lipsticks, I can’t wait till they come on sale! xxx
