MAC is making Star Trek makeup for the nerd in all of us
Prepare yourselves, Star Trek fans. MAC just announced it'll be celebrating the iconic show's 50th anniversary with an exclusive Star Trek-inspired makeup line. You know how awesome those space-age ladies looked? Well, now you can master their intergalactic beauty secrets yourself. However, you will have to wait till September before you can set your phasers to stunning, because that's the month the show officially premiered all those years ago.
Even if you're not a Trekkie, this news is pretty exciting. Star Trek was not exactly known for its conventional beauties, so MAC's new line shows it's all for propelling strong, diverse women into the spotlight.
“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,” said MAC senior vice president and group creative director James Gager in a press statement. “For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.”
Check out that diversity! So far the collection will feature 25 makeup pieces, which will include nail polish, lipsticks and eyeshadows. Hopefully it'll also have some skin tinter in there for the ladies who are bold enough to go full Vina, the Orion Girl:
Needless to say, Trekkies everywhere have been going nuts over this news. If you too are chomping at the bit for your own Deanna Troi eyeshadow pencils, you can officially start buying them online on Aug. 25 — a full five days before they go on sale in stores. Die-hard fans can get their hands on products at MAC Gaslamp in San Diego on July 21, which is unsurprisingly not far from the San Diego Comic-Con.
