Pretty Peek: MAC Cosmetics Reel Sexy Collection and Video! Thursday 29 March, 2012
Watch MAC’s Reel Sexy color collection come to life on the extra-emotive face of ’90s supermodel Kristen McMenamy in a video shot by Miles Aldridge.
I’m almost horrified at the idea of what I might look like when watching a film. I’ve never asked anyone for a report. (Main reason being: I never thought about this before. AND. I already know I don’t really want to know. I found out years ago that I sleep with my eyes partially open, and the thought frightens me. If no one ever told me this, I’d think I was a sexy-looking sleeper. But now I know I am most certainly not a sexy-looking sleeper. I would like to think I’m a sexy-looking film watcher too…I’m pretty sure I don’t want anyone to shatter my vision of me emoting like Kate Winslet as I take in a movie.)
I already know this about myself: I cry when someone else cries—instantly. I also tend to mirror the mannerisms of whoever is talking to me. (I’m very self-aware, as you can tell.) So, watching the MAC Reel Sexy video of ’90s supermodel Kristen McMenamy leaves me a little uncomfortable—even though the concept (executed by one of my all-time favorite photographers—and husband to Kristen—Miles Aldridge) is really quite amazing.
The video is for MAC‘s new Reel Sexy line (available next month), which is all about surreal color saturation and a combination vibrant neons with moodier jewel tones. To me, the standouts are the three Nail Lacquers—bright coral Vivid Effect, hot violet In the Dark…Purple, and mega-bright mid-tone teal Screening Room—and the four Lipsticks—punchy coral Reel Sexy, pink-orange Watch Me Simmer, lavender Pink Popcorn and matte bright violet Heroine.
The Reel Sexy collection won’t hit virtual and real shelves until April 5 (visit maccosmetics.com), but, of course, you can watch these vibrant hues come to life on Kristen in the video below!
What do you think of this little piece of cinema beauty?
