Maine is one of the 11 influencers around the globe to be a part of #MACMaker, the circle of Beauty influencers who have worked with MAC Cosmetics to create their own lipstick shade with their name on the label.
Maine's collaboration with the brand started around January 2018, when she flew to Canada to pick a custom shade that will be named after her. MAC Cosmetics Philippines chose her to represent the country because she's been a long-time supporter of the brand. Fun fact: Maine's first MAC lippie was Candy Yum Yum! "Flamboyant, 'di ba?" she said.
As for the name of her own MAC lipstick? @MaineDCM! It's a muted peach beige and is a mix of MAC's well-loved nude lippie shades, Spirit, Velvet Teddy, and Brave. She chose this shade because she wanted to create a flattering MLBB lippie that will suit all Pinays. "Majority of the Filipinas like it simple. Yung parang 'ganda lang,' no-makeup look," she expounded.
For the packaging, Maine wanted to keep it simple, so she just placed seven kiss marks on a sheet of paper that was used as the template of the box. Now that's personal touch!
You better get your wallets ready because MAC only has 20,000 pieces of this special limited edition lipstick! Those who'll buy in-store can purchase 10 pieces max.
Each lipstick will retail for P1,100 and will be available at Lazada on September 21, in SM Megamall on September 22, and in MAC boutiques nationwide on September 23. Globally, Maine's lipstick may be purchased on maccosmetics.com by November. It's truly amazing to see a Filipino work with a big international makeup brand. Congratulations, Maine!
We at the Cosmo HQ wanted to see just how the shade will look on different skin tones, so we decided to all try it:
