MAC Cosmetics x Kakao Friends

MAC's gorgeous lipsticks get an adorable update with all your favourite Korean cartoon creatures.

If you haven't heard of Kakao Friends before, you're definitely going to want to get Googling. The Korean cartoon creatures are wildly popular (even earning their own cafes and flagship stores) and you're about to see a lot more of them thanks to MAC Cosmetics.

From a bunch of photos that leaked on Instagram, we've had a sneak peek at a new MAC line celebrating the critters. The images show at least five different MAC lipsticks updated with sunshine yellow tubing decorated with popular Kakao characters.

You'll be able to choose from Ryan (who looks like a teddy bear, but is apparently a lion sans mane and tail?), Muzi (Kakao's bunny-suited mascot), Apeach (a walking, talking peach mutation), Frodo (a big-city dog) or his fashionista cat girlfriend Neo.

The limited-edition line has been designed for Valentine's Day, which means that it will be dropping sometime in early February.

The available lipstick shades will be:

  • Ryan – Lady Danger (vivid bright coral-red)
  • Apeach – Lucky In Love (rose)
  • Neo – Ruby Woo (vivid blue-red)
  • Muzi – To Luck (deep rose)
  • Frodo – See Sheer (grapefruit)

At this time, it's not clear whether the line will be a Korean-exclusive, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that we'll see it on the Australian MAC Cosmetics site and in usual stockists like Myer in the near future.

If the collection doesn't get an Australian release, you may still be able to pick it up on eBay, so be sure to keep an eye out.

In other beauty news, Anastasia Beverly Hills has just revealed a new mini palette as part of its popular Norvina line. The cherry-themed palette is set to drop in the US in just a couple of days, so we should be seeing it in Sephora soon.
