i had a different blog post planned for today – but it can wait. i’m really not sure i’ve been this excited in quite some time and everything must come to a screeching halt.
it was just announced that mac cosmetics is partnering with twenty century fox to create a rocky horror picture show line to celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary.
excuse me…i fainted again, i had to pick myself up off the floor.
while i’ve always been a huge fan of mac cosmetics – i’ve basically worn them exclusively since i started wearing makeup for dance shows – i’ve never really bought in to any of their celebrity lines. i did try to find the barbie pink lipstick when it was out, but alas, sold out everywhere.
movie cult classic changes all of that!
as i was watching the movie on saturday (not even kidding you, i just watched it this weekend. i love rocky horror) i thought to myself – i wish i could have makeup as perfect as Dr. Frank-n-furter, who – as a five foot seven plus heels transvestite from Transylvania played by Tim Curry – is my favourite character. i also want his body in a bustier and stockings, but that’s a different blog post all together.
good news is now i can.
the wonderfully weird collection features lipsticks and lip pencils ($17.50), eye shadow palette ($44.00), glitters and pigment ($23.00), blush ($24.00), powders ($27.50-35.00), liquid eyeliner ($20.00), lashes ($18.50) and more. all of this in store and online as of october 2.
now, if you’ll excuse me, i’m going to try to get my heart rate down to a normal level, dream of Columbia’s glittery time warp costume, and wait in line at my closest mac store.
are you a rocky horror fan? who’s your favourite character?
