From a pale sixties pink to a deep plum (with additional shades of peony; mandarin; and warm, red rose), there is a lip color for every Valli girl out there—with a matte finish and clever, colorful tubes to match (no more fumbling to check inside the bullet!)—and a lip gloss to top it off, should the situation require a hint of shine. “The best thing about makeup is that a lipstick can really change your look. If you never wear color on your lips and then one day you wear red, everyone just goes ‘wow!’” Valli muses. “I made these for a woman with personality, a woman who lives her life and isn’t afraid to wear color and isn’t afraid to kiss!” With shades this winning, somehow we don’t think she’ll be lacking in opportunities.
“For a creative person, collaborating can be frustrating because you feel that you’re limited or stuck within someone else’s ideas, but with MAC it was 100 percent freedom and 100 percent support just to make my idea become a reality, to pull out my flowers and my sense and my emotion and put it into the color,” says Valli, who drew from a range of hues from past collections for a palette that would flatter women on an international scale—as well as a few less expected references, like one shade born from a meeting in which he delivered a single cherry to the MAC team. (They aced it, by the way—“It’s the exact color of that cherry!” Valli crows.)
