Sometimes MAC calls this the Helmut Newton collection; other times the Limited Edition collection. So I’m just calling it the whole dang thing it says on the website’s collection banner (above).
M·A·C Limited Edition celebrates the erotically charged and elegant work of legendary photographer Helmut Newton. Known for his precise, glamorous and empowering photography of women, this limited-edition colour collection captures his provocative, exquisite taste. A selection of Newton’s iconic photographs adorns the packaging. Even today, his work remains as distinctive and influential as ever.
[Added 2017-11-30] If you’d like to learn more about Helmut Newton and view more of his work, you can check out Helmut Newton at Artsy (please note that some of the work includes nudity):
The MAC collection comprises the usual assortment of eyeshadows, lip products, and more, and also three new Studio Nail Lacquers:
- Berlin, purple (crème) [this looks red to me on the website]
- Call Time, grey (crème)
- Monte Carlo, red (crème)
Not the most exciting array of colors, is it?
MAC has also discontinued their core collection of Studio Nail Lacquers, and currently only have plans to release the product in limited edition collections, such as this one.
The Studio Nail Lacquers retail for US$13 / CA$15, unless they are in special packaging—which is not the case with this collection, though I think the Helmut Newton products do seem like they come with fancy boxes.
