Dame Edna has come to MAC! If you’re not familiar with the great Dame, the world-famous talk show host character is the invention of Australian comedian, Barry Humphries. Dame Edna rose to fame in the 1970s, but has been in showbiz for more than 50 years. No stranger to modesty, Dame Edna describes herself as”as the most popular and most gifted” person alive today. Her signature lilac hair and cat-eye sparkle accented glasses are as over-the-top as her personality! The colours and textures of this latest MAC collection are well-suited to the Great Dame.
My sample kit included the Possum Nose Pink Lipglass – a bright coral gloss with sparkle. Once applied on my lips, the gloss looked like a gorgeous candy pink colour. I actually found the colour very similar to a current staple in my own kit, MAC’s Lipglass in Lychee Luxe (a coral shimmer gloss). The two colours were nearly identical, with Dame Edna’s Possum Nose having more of a multidimensional sparkle. I love Possum Nose for evenings when I still want to maintain the coral colour of Lychee Luxe, but give an added punch!
Packaged in lilac containers, the Dame Edna collection is as fun as the personality that inspired it. The limited edition collection includes lipsticks, nail polishes, highlight powders and eyeshadow trios (that have the blues of the season!). In the words of the Great Dame: “Follow my beauty regime possums, and you’ll never be cosmetically challenged!” Enjoy!
Available December 26th in MAC stores and counters.
