Very Vera

MAC Cosmetics has launched a new collection based on the colorful designs of 1960s textile designer Vera Neumann.This limited edition collection ushers in Spring with fresh pastels and bright hues such as three collections of crushed metallic pigments: Aloha (neutral shades), Butterfly (purples and greens), and Strawberry Patch (roses and pinks) ($34 each).

My favorites are the Pearlmatte Face Powder in Sunday Afternoon (pinks) and Flower Fantasy (corals) ($28 each). Each cake is stamped with Vera’s iconic signature and ladybug logo, just like her scarves.

I’m also eyeing the Nail Lacquer ($16) in Midsummer’s Dream.

I love anything Vera Neumann. I have some of her napkins and placemats from the tableware collection that J.C. Penney came out with a few years ago. It’s nice to see licensing deals like these keeping Vera’s designs alive (she died in 1993).
