We should all know by now that, A) when it comes to creative collaborations, M.A.C Cosmetics can truly do no wrong and B) one can NEVER have too many lipsticks. Case in point? The new lust-worthy Giambattista Valli for M.A.C Cosmetics collection - a seriously plush range of five lipsticks that you're going to want to scoop up the second they drop.

Valli is a designer who knows women, loves women and dresses then so they not only look good, but feel good and, most importantly, his women are never overpowered by the dress - a fatal mistake often made by designers attempting to get in on his game. His designs have been worn by Hollywood's most consistent best-dressed list toppers, including Amal Clooney, Rihanna, Marion Cottiard, Diane Kruger, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone and Lupita Nyong'o, and then there's the crazy amount of wedding dresses his couture looks inspire. So of course we were going to fall head over heels for his makeup collection...

The five lipsticks: Retro pastel pink (Bianca), hot Barbie doll-like pink (Tats), coral (Margherita), sexy, l vibrant red (Charlotte) and a deep cherry red (Eugenie) are all designed by Valli with five different feminine personalities - or, as we like to think, five different life moments- because as if we're going to choose just one. But here's where it gets interesting, there's a sixth product, a Crystal Glaze Gloss that, when applied to the lips, transforms the matte finishes into an opulent, high-shine gloss.
If all that doesn't make you weak at the knees, for the collection, M.A.C has also transformed it's black bullet packaging into brilliant, metallic tubes coloured to match the hue inside. So you CAN carry all of them with you at all times without rummaging through your bag to find The One. Which is so much of a no-brainer, you have to wonder why it hasn't been done before.
Giambattista Vali x M.A.C will be available in Australia soon.
