US brand Mac Cosmetics is collaborating with Beijing-based jewellery designer Bao Bao Wan to create a jewel-tone-inspired cosmetics collection.

The limited-edition collection will take influence from Wan’s jewellery designs and will include five golden eye-shadow shades, including Green Gold and oxidised Rose Gold. The collection will also include four lipsticks, three nail polishes and a beauty powder.                                                                                            

Speaking to fashion industry journal Women’s Wear Daily, Wan said: “It’s all about gemstones and the colours that I love… I’m very conservative with make-up colour, and I’m very much about gold shades. I used my logic and my senses: I didn’t want any crazy colours in the collection, and I wanted it to be practical and to suit every skin tone.” 

See our Spring/Summer 2016 Colour Spectrum palette for Shifting Surfaces, which looks to changeable surface finishes and includes shimmering lustres and ultra-luxurious luminescent shades. See also Gemstones: Precious Hues for colour inspiration.

The collection will be launched in December 2014 and will be available in 33 countries by March 2015.
