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.
Ruffian fans the world over presumably look back on Brian Wolk and Claude Morais’ Fall 2009 show fondly. Their polished collection that season was capped off by a limited-edition makeup collaboration with MAC Cosmetics that resulted in Ruffian Red, a bold crimson lipstick that was used in the show and sold for a brief time afterward. Well, we’ve got some good news for those of you still scraping the last bits of pigment out of the pout perfector’s original bullet: Ruffian Red will be back on the catwalk at the designers’ Fall 2012 show tomorrow and has inspired a full-scale range of face-painting products created by the two brands. Mum’s still the word as far as what will be included in the line when it debuts in June, but there is one thing we can tell you: Ruffian’s now-legendary moon manicure (Wolk and Marais commission one every season) will be represented “in a way MAC has never done before,” according to our sources. Get excited.
