MAC Announces a Questionable Treasure Troll-Inspired Makeup Line

MAC Good Luck Trolls Makeup Collection

In a move that will puzzle anyone who knows anything about marketing, today MAC Cosmetics announced its newest collection, MAC Good Luck Trolls. We can only think of one setting in which one would actively embrace the beauty aesthetic of the “wild-haired dolls of your youth [and] their rainbow tufts, bejeweled bellies and lucky charms” — and, after next weekend, that occasion will have officially passed.

The “crazy-hued collection as silly as the characters themselves” won’t be available online until July 28 with an in-store release date of August 4. That’s just in time to miss every major music festival save New York’s Electric Zoo, including, most notably, this weekend’s Coachella, which is possibly the only space in which we’d forgive wearers of the line’s “frosted chartreuse green” pigment and “transparent sky blue with fine pink reflect” lip gloss. Considering the fondness for metallic lips and eyes, unconventional hair colors and hair glitter at this year’s California-based festivities, you’d think MAC would’ve timed the release of the collection to cater to its most promising base.

Watch: Taylor Swift’s 73 Questions Interview Is Just as Awesome as Her Vogue Cover

We’re sensing another Taylor Swift image-buoying crossover on the horizon, and we’re psyched. The multiple Grammy Award-winning artist’s recent Heidi Slimane-inspired Vogue cover shows Swift in a whole new light and it’s very much a magic hour, heavenly type of glow.

“We thought that we could take Taylor — who is a beautiful, beautiful girl but has been a little bit more conservative in her fashion choices — and turn her into a Hedi Slimane rock ‘n’ roll girl,” said Anna Wintour of the breathtaking May spread. “She was completely up for it and loved it, and is going to hopefully continue with this look.” We wholeheartedly agree, and based on Swift’s appropriation of the towering Vetements boots she wears in the editorial and her recent transition to platinum blonde, we’d say Wintour’s fashion forecasting skills are sharp as ever.

Puppy Eyeliner Is the New Must-Try K-Beauty Trend

When disc jockey extraordinaire Diplo transformed himself into the “vomiting rainbow” Snapchat filter this past Halloween, it got us thinking. If only there was a way to bring our favorite hilarious and inexplicably mesmerizing Snapchat personas to life. Well, for those of you obsessed with the “licking dog” lens, we’ve got good news. A new beauty trend just in from Korea — where seemingly all great skin and makeup tricks are born — takes its inspiration from (wo)man’s best friend.

“Puppy eye” creates the illusion of a rounder, larger eye, giving wearers an innocent, Bambi-esque gaze. The playful K-beauty liner technique is a welcome answer to the omni-present sultry cat eye and, thankfully, much easier to master. (To be frank, infuriatingly uneven wings were half the reason we hopped on the natural makeup bandwagon.) (more…)

Thumbs Down for This Terry Richardson-Shot Cover of Bella Hadid for W Korea (Forum Buzz)

W Korea is most definitely tapping into the social media generation of models in 2016. The publication secured Kendall Jenner for its big spring fashion edition back in March, ultimately receiving dismal reviews. Now two months later, W Korea proudly unveils its May issue featuring Bella Hadid. Fresh from the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain, the younger Hadid sister stars on two separate covers for the occasion (a W Korea staple), sporting some very questionable and rather tacky outfits before the lens of controversial photographer Terry Richardson.

Unlike Bella’s Spanish Bazaar cover, however, forum members weren’t so keen on the results. “Easily her ugliest covers to date. What have they done to her face? Oh and the second cover features such a weird angle. Too coy for Terry, can almost imagine him preferring an open leg shot instead. In a way I can deal with Bella’s career direction – let her build up momentum and practice with these smaller covers and edits. So that by the time she gets to Vogue at least she’ll be a bit more developed than the others,” proclaimed Benn98 the moment the covers dropped.

“I expected so much better,” disapproved MON. (more…)

Forum Members Give FKA twigs’ New Cover of Allure Mixed Reviews (Forum Buzz)

The staff changes at Allure are slowly but surely starting to take effect and we’re beginning to see subtle differences with the release of each issue. Last month, we happily welcomed a fresh-faced Amy Adams as the magazine’s cover star. Continuing to eschew the usual subjects, FKA twigs stars on the magazine’s May 2016 edition. The current face of Calvin Klein Jeans poses confidently before the lens of Alasdair McLellan and uses her hands to serve up some dynamic poses.

But our forum members weren’t too impressed at first glance. “The hand movement became redundant easily,” complained an unimpressed MON the moment the cover dropped.

“Not a fan of her and the cover looks basic. Her hand wasn’t necessary though. She looks like she’s stretching her arm which makes her look uncomfortable. This is putting me to sleep, next!” quickly disapproved Aizanara. (more…)

We’re Giving Away Two Watches That Are Perfect for Summer!

The Fashion Spot Timex Watch Giveaway

Image: Timex

This spring we’ve resolved to take full advantage of the glorious weather by disconnecting (ever so slightly) from our smartphones. We’re going to close our eyes and really feel the breeze on our face as we cruise down uncharted bike paths. Take an extra moment to enjoy the richness of our sinfully whipped, artificial sprinkle-topped ice cream. Visit a country where, to the locals, free public Wi-Fi still seems like something out of a Philip K. Dick novel. Oh yea, and wear a watch so we don’t totally fail at adult life in the process of unplugging.

To that end, we’re inviting you to join us with the chance to win one of two classic Timex watches in this season’s most ubiquitous colorways: stripes and nudes. The grand prize, a Weekender Fairfield timepiece, comes equipped with Timex’s signature interchangeable straps, so it’s easily customized to any outfit. (Though we’re partial to the original navy and white pattern — very Jacquemus circa “Les parasols de Marseille.”) The runner-up will receive a Chesapeake model, whose sleek, sophisticated design and neutral suede strap make it a natural everyday accessory. We should add that both pieces are 30 meter water resistant, so you can (kinda) keep time at the beach.

Fill out this form to enter the contest by May 2 — and don’t forget to like and share or tweet at us to let us know you’ve entered! (Okay, so we haven’t totally relinquished the Internet yet.) Good luck!
