MAC goes intergalactic with new Star Trek collection

Collection will feature “cosmically charged hues” inspired by the sci-fi saga

A treat for all Trekkies, MAC has released images and details about an upcoming make-up launch in celebration of sci-fi franchise Star Trek’s 50th anniversary.

The MAC Star Trek collection (#MACStarTrek) pushes the frontiers of stereotypes in beauty; the range emphasises the aesthetics of gender and race in all forms and is said to be inspired by powerful female characters in the cult series featuring “cosmically charged” colours and metallic hues.

Images of the range, which is due out in September, have been released and so far include a lipstick, lipgloss, nail lacquer, bronzer and eyeshadow based on a gold, green and bronze theme.

James Gager, Creative Director, Cosmetics, MAC, said:“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries. For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek's powerful women in a transcending, transformational make-up collection.”
