When the prodigiously talented Zac Posen does a collection with M.A.C, you can expect chic things

In love with Zac Posen's girlish glamour? So is everyone from the Upper East Siders on Gossip Girl to the models and celebrities who don his elegant yet dramatic gowns to huge events like the Oscars and the Met Gala. It's no wonder M.A.C has decided to tap this New Yorker's design talents for their latest collaboration which will be available in February 2016.

Says Posen, "Over the past 15 years I have learned a great deal from M∙A∙C about beauty. Fashion and beauty go hand-in-hand and I have always wanted to create a makeup collection to complement my designs and brand. It was only natural to work with M∙A∙C to create my first ever signature collection. I wanted to keep it luxurious, a little mysterious and clean with a large dose of star wattage."

From what we can see of the makeup collection, the products — that include a lipstick, cheek product, eye palette and brushes — are sleekly packaged in black casing. What we're already loving: the liquid liner, fluffy kabuki-style brush and très elegant orange-red lippie. Like his designs that have been described by M.A.C as having "a throw-back glamour that still feels modern," this fab collab is high on a party girl's wish list.
