Having mastered the art of fashion, style arbiter Carine Roitfeld is adding to her repertoire by conquering the beauty world. This fall she launches not only a new magazine (ahem, CR Fashion Book, a new biannual from the company that publishes V) but also a limited-edition cosmetics line with M.A.C.
M.A.C COSMETICS CARINE ROITFELD COLLECTION
Lipstick in Tropical Mist
Full face kits in Jungle Camouflage and Desert Camouflage
Mineralize concealer in NC33
Kohl Power eye pencil in Feline
Nail Lacquer in Underfire Red
The Carine Roitfeld Collection celebrates the famed editrix’s iconic visage with products that can be used to mimic her smoldering eyes and bold brows. “Makeup can help you capture a moment,” she says. “My makeup is a little bit messy, and it’s not perfect. Yet I think it is still a success. I like my makeup a little bit dark, like it’s falling apart. I find that charming.”
To conjur its creator’s pleasantly imperfect appeal, the assortment includes a selection of shadow palettes, kohl pencils, and brow powders. But unlike limited-edition collabs that focus squarely on color, this one is rounded out with basics, like liquid foundation, and tools that are both functional (a sleek lash curler) and fanciful (a stencil in the shape of a star).
“I’ve always been like this, for 25 years,” Roitfeld says of her signature look. “I didn’t change, but people didn’t notice before.” Rest assured, they are certainly noticing now.
