MAC X Ruffian: It’s Here!-------
Back in February, we had the pleasure of breaking the news that Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais were collaborating with MAC on a capsule collection that began with the re-release of Ruffian Red, a deep crimson lipstick the two brands created together three years ago—and which made its triumphant runway return for Fall. Four months later, and MAC x Ruffian is debuting exclusively online today, with two additional lip colors—Ruffian Gold, a frosty gilded glitter bullet, and Ruffian Naked, a matte pale peach—as well as a riff on another beauty statement the design duo has decisively made its own: the moon manicure. Wolk and Morais embraced embellished tips long before the nail art movement became a compulsory part of the backstage beauty game, and we’re happy to report that their dedication to highly designed tips has been translated into three different press-on patterns: Spectator is a cream base with a black half moon, black tip, and black Ruffian insignia (which should look plenty familiar to anyone who attended the house’s Spring 2011 show); Demoiselle boasts a red base with a white half moon and black French tip; and Demilune features matte black nails with a chrome gold half moon. Best to get while the getting’s good.
