MAC to Launch Troll-Inspired Collection
Most would associate trolls with the creature that trashed the girl’s bathroom when Harry Potter first enrolled at Hogwarts. For the kids of the '80s and '90s, the trolls were a lot different. With their rainbow-hued hair catching your attention well before anything else, the Good Luck Trolls were the cult toy to have. This November, the playthings will be releasing their own movie and MAC is set to release a makeup collection inspired by the adorable critters. The colourful collection is set to feature lipsticks, eye shadows, glitter and much more. This collection follows in the footsteps of movie-themed makeup ranges such as Alice Through The Looking Glass by Urban Decay (launched earlier this week) and CoverGirl’s Star Wars inspired collection. "The Good Luck Trolls have evoked love and joy since the 1960s," explains MAC senior vice president and creative director James Gager. "We are so happy we can put the spotlight on them again." Some key products that caught our attention, include the bold lipsticks with names such as “Can’t Be Tamed”, a creamy sheer lime yellow; “Dance Off Pants Off”, a frosted hot pink and “Midnight Troll”, a rich blue with a matte finish. The collection also carries a selection of shiny “Lipglasses” that come in glittery “Bubble Butt” magenta, “Twerkquoise” sky blue and “Glitter Grunge” berry tones. There is also a series of vibrant eyeshadows in frosted, velvet, matte and satin textures. The available shades include “Paradisco” Pinky-coral, “Suns Out, Buns Out” mustard yellow and “Atlantic Blue” cobalt blue. Rounding off the collection are pigment colours, beauty powders, colourful glitter and a 187SH Duo Fibre Face Brush. MAC Good Luck Trolls will be launched internationally in August at select MAC locations and at MAC's official website.
