Fine jewelry designer Bao Bao Wan is set to release a limited-edition line of cosmetics with makeup giant MAC early next year. The unreleased collection, which will feature five eyeshadows, four lipsticks and three nail polishes, will hit 33 countries in March and only be available for four weeks. The Beijing-born Chinese Dior ambassador said, “It’s all about gemstones and the colors that I love,” when asked by WWD about the line. She mentioned that the colors will be “easy” and work on all skin tones. “I’m very conservative with makeup color, and I’m very much about gold shades. I used my logic and my senses: I didn’t want any crazy colors in the collection, and I wanted it to be practical and to suit every skin tone,” Wan said.
Images for the products have not been released, but the five eyeshadows will be shades of gold, including green and oxidized rose gold, which were inspired by the metals used in Wan’s jewelry designs. The lipsticks and nail polishes were directly inspired by gemstones and a beauty powder. Wan also designed the packaging herself and stars in the campaign, which was shot by Chen Man, a friend of Wan’s who has had a collection with MAC previously.
