MAC Cosmetics are not shy when it comes to colour, and with over 62 collections a year, we expect a vivid surprise now and then. But this latest collection by Chris Chang; the Shanghai-based fashion designer of Poesia, is next level. A 14-piece collection including, lipsticks and eyeshadows, creamy colour, liner and a transparent powder, all inspired by the ancient Chinese art form Kunqu. Chang says, "Colour is the integral fuel of my imagination and the spirit MAC and I share. This collaboration is a dream come true for the maximalists of the world." Chang's inspiration came from ethnic tribes, costumes and art from around the world. Expect a kaleidoscope of colour inside and out, the packaging is for keeps as well, each piece ornately decorated with Chang's signature dramatic flair in nothing less than - vibrant colour.
