New Collection: MAC - Dame Enda/ WIN IT!

Dame Edna is the resident muse for our spectacular post-holiday makeup collection, and modestly describes herself as "probably the most popular and gifted woman in the world today: housewife, investigative journalist, social anthropologist, talk-show host, swami, children's book illustrator, spin doctor, megastar, and Icon."

With packaging as mirthful and minx-like as The Legend herself, the Dame Collection of heavy-on-the-lilac Lipstick/Lipglass, eye shadow, Highlight powder and nail lacquers is in a class by itself! "Follow my beauty regime possums, and you'll never be cosmetically challenged." - Dame Edna

So I have to say that I'm not entirely sure why MAC chose Dame Edna as a beauty icon, but I do understand that she's popular in certain circles. Regardless, I do find the lilac packaging with sparkly red glasses pretty cute. I was most drawn to the lip selection and highlighting powder.

It's totally natural that Dame Enda and Mac pair up to create a line. Both Ms. Enda and Mac represent unique beauty. I'm totally psyched for the ultra pink lipstick!

I think Dame Edna might possibly be Jewish! She is a widow w/ 3 grown children though!

I dont know THAT much about Dame Edna besides that she is quite witty and even thought provoking at times and quite funny. Kinda like a hipster aunt who you love to visit even though you think she is kinda wacky. Good luck everyone!

Hi! This is so funny, the Dame Edna collection. I know a bit about Dame Edna -- 'she' I believe is really biologically a 'he' (the actor, not the character) and she used to be a character on Ally McBeal for a while unless I am remembering really wrong.

oooh awesome. I love dame edna she is hilarious. Please enter me I would love those little e/s!

Dame Edna is a tricky one. I know that there is a lot of confusion on her/his character. Once I saw this new line I immediately Googled it because my mother in laws name is Edna, and she is probably one of the most conservative people I know! My favorite Dame Edna quote is "I'm trying to find a word to describe what you're wearing...affordable!"

Isn't Dame Edna a man dressed up as a woman? How did he get a makeup collection?

Kim said...

Hi Kyle!

I think "she" is quirky with a bold whimsical sense of style and clever humour.

OMG - MAC and Dame Edna! I saw her show once and was in stitches the whole time! Every woman needs to get in touch with her "inner Edna!" Dame Ednas beauty is all about being whatever you want to be no matter what!

I remember seeing Dame Edna as a little girl, and not fully understanding who she was. I just thought she was same lady with purple hair. Now, I realize what a hilarious character she is.

I am so delighted that MAC chose Dame Edna for the new collection. A wonderful idea from a very colorful and timeless muse!
