I fondly remember my very cringe-worthy 8-year-old self singing “I’m A Barbie Girl, In A Barbie World” days on end, despite not knowing the rest of the lyrics to the song. Though I’ve long passed the Barbie Girl phase, I can’t help but be enticed by the MAC x Barbie’s collaboration featuring an all-new Barbie Style MAC Lipstick.
The global lady of the world has launched an exciting new partnership with MAC and it feels like a collaboration of my youth and my childhood. As part of MAC’s beauty initiative “international beauty movers and makers,” an all-new universal cool-toned, bubblegum-pink shade with a matte finish has been launched and it’s been dubbed as @Barbiestyle.
The custom shade gives off strong sentiments and nostalgic vibes with the lipstick shade looking suspiciously as if it was stolen straight from Barbie’s makeup drawer. The colour is a universal pink that compliments every skin tone, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to live out your Barbie fantasy dreams.
Personally, the best thing about this lipstick is that it gives you the freedom of wear. You could lay it up with a lip pencil or some gloss, or go raw and fashion it all on its own. Do whatever you want with it, from complimenting your daily looks to rocking something a little more edgy for the days when you’re just feeling your oats.
Even the packaging is glamorous with the matte lipstick encased in a gold metal tube, packaged in an alluring hot pink box with gold accents. The Barbie x MAC limited-edition lipstick will be exclusively available online March 9 onwards. Well, what are you waiting for? Come on Barbie, let’s go party!
