This isn’t the first time M.A.C Cosmetics has teamed up with an animated character for a makeup collection collaboration. Hello Kitty, Wonder Woman and The Archies have all been represented in lipstick and blush by the brand. But there’s something about The Simpsons Collaboration that stands out — and we’re loving it! While Marge isn’t what you’d call a conventional beauty (mostly because of her blue beehive) she certainly is an icon. And the show’s 25th anniversary this year is the best time to celebrate the Simpson matriarch’s pop culture influence.
What it is: The collection includes two eyeshadow palettes, one set of false lashes, four tinted lip glass shades (including one in Nacho Cheese Explosion yellow that will tone down a bold red lipstick or give you the perfect nude lip), two pretty blushes in universally flattering shades and amazing yellow nail decals printed with line drawings of your favourite Simpsons characters.
Why we love it: M.A.C has a knack for bringing out the beauty in everyone and reminding us that we’re all beautiful, fictional animated characters like Marge included. And while the limited edition Marge-emblazoned packaging is very collectible, the collection is actually quite wearable. Try the eyeshadow quad in Marge’s Extra Ingredients and experiment with the Beehive Blue shade as an eyeliner and highlight your brow bone using the pale Harpooned Heart pink. Or wear the nail decals and guarantee yourself a smile every time you look at your hands. Pick up a piece of the Simpsons collection sooner than later because it’s definitely going to sell out fast, and remind yourself to live in vibrant colour once in a while (blue hair dye, not necessary).
