The more things change, the more they stay the same.
The beauty brand is always at the forefront of cosmetic development, be it with lip markers or Hello Kitty collaborations.
But their latest collection, Pret-A-Papier, takes us back to when we were five. The series, inspired by paper, includes a range of parchment-hued lipsticks, blushes, and polishes. It’s utilitarian-meets-avant garde, perfect for anyone who likes to wear makeup but doesn’t like to look like they’re wearing makeup. But what caught our eye was what comes with it: paper dolls.
MAC got four designers—Cynthia Rowley, Greta Constantine, Zandra Rhodes, and Daniel Vosovic—to submit patterns. Cut them up, put them together, and you’ve got a blue-haired woman walking a chimp or an It Girl rocking a pair of hot pink slashed pants.
Though you can’t purchase the paper dolls, you can pick up your very own set at upcoming Pret-A-Papier in-store events (all dates listed on their Facebook page
). And let’s be honest: Though we’ve grown up in many ways, we’ll never stop wanting to play with paper dolls. That, and makeup.
