When the MAC Fafi Collection was first launched I was not sure what or who a Fafi was! I now know better. Born and raised in Toulouse France, Fafi’s strong presence in the graffiti and fine arts scene was first witnessed on her hometown walls in 1994. She drew enormous attention and thus started to travel the world with thousands of ‘Fafinettes’ in her brushes and paint cans.

MAC worked exclusively with the Paris-based artist to create three distinct ‘Fafinette’ characters: Monoka, Ermine, and Eriko that embody the signature depictions of sexy, liberated girls that have earned Fafi a devout following in the street art world. When Jennifer Balbier, SVP Product Development for MAC Worldwide, was asked what the ultimate Fafinette face was, she responded: “The look is toned-down skin with heavier emphasis on eyes and a girly mouth. She’s colourful, but the texture is light.”

The Fafi collection is a hip spring colour collection filled with bold, empowering hues, unapologetically girly lip shades of pearly pinks and tangerine reds, iridescent powder, brown, blue and green Paint Pots and Quads, and whimsical cosmetic accessories.

Here is the collection:

K-Palette Liquid Liner

Thursday, March 13th, 2008

I really like the look of liquid eyeliner but I am so challenged when it comes to applying it. Well, I have found one that makes me seem like a makeup artist! K-Palette’s Real Lasting 24 Hour Eyeliner has a patented micro-fibre brush with the finest tip, allowing me to have complete control, and precise crisp lines.

The packaging may not look flashy but this eyeliner is designed to stay smudge-proof and tear-resistant throughout busy days and nights, and it does. After applying my liquid liner, I waited a couple of seconds then ran my fingers over my lids to try and smudge it. Nothing. Then I went to the sink, ran some water and splashed my face. I blinked several times and…nothing. When I did eventually want to take it off, I used my Kiehl’s eye makeup remover, and off it came.

If you have not seen this brand before, that is because it is from Japan and has recently made the trip to North America. I predict that it will be a best seller in North America.
