MAC Cosmetics: Where Graffiti Art Meets Makeup

MAC Street Art Eyeshadow Palette ($38.00 for 0.31 oz.) is one of three limited edition specially designed compacts from the Art of Powder Collection, which launches on September 29th, 2011 (North America) and October 2011 (International, at select locations). 

I usually don’t do beauty posts, but this one is just telling of how far graffiti culture has come since the late 1970s. From an illegal activity (where you can STILL serve up to 2 years in jail) to a trendy beauty product - speaks volumes, doesn’t it? Ah, consumerism…it’s the gift that keeps on giving! ;)
