FIRST LOOK!!! MAC Black Style

Black is the new black.
I first laid eyes on some of the products from this collection backstage at the Diesel Fall 2009 show and have been chomping at the bit to get my hands on it. And here it is! (Well, at least some of them anyways.) I will admit, it's a bit daring, very goth, but with the right attitude, you can definitely pull it off. (That's me modelling the Glimmerglass in Blackware. What do you think? Would you wear it?!).

A model rocking the finished look backstage at the Diesel Fall 2009 show. According to Charlotte Tillbury (head makeup artist for the show) the inspiration for the look was the Great Depression of the 1930's.
"But this is a more modern, rock and roll version," she said. "The eye is black with wet look, like she's been up all night partying with a jazz band. The lips are red and the edges are smudged, like she's finished making out with her boyfriend."

Here's an example of the "wet" eye Tillbury was talking about. She's polishing on more of the MAC gloss on one of the models backstage.

And here's the finished look! Head hairstylist at the show Eugene (for Wella) described the look as 18th century.
"It's like a very rich woman who has fallen down on her luck," he said. "Think a french courtesan look."

Black lipstick?! That's totally biting off of YSL , didn't they just do that like last season?! but I do like the shadows.

Wow! It looks great. They describe Blackware as being a 'creamy true black,' but from your photo it looks like it can be used lightly enough to layer over other colors. Is that true?
