The first MAC lipstick shade created by Filipino social media influencer Maine Mendoza has been revealed and is scheduled for market release this September.
MAC Cosmetics Philippines and Mendoza announced on social media the availability of the newest lipstick shade for Filipinos on the following dates:
- September 21 – Lazada
- September 22 – SM Megamall
- September 23 – in stores nationwide
Even before the big reveal Mendoza has actually been using her lipstick shade in some appearances after her trip to the Canada MAC workshop and no one knew about it, revealed MAC Philippines.
Mendoza, the other half of the social media phenomenon and Guinness World Record holder ALDUB, first announced in January her collaboration with the international cosmetics brand as the first Filipina to be given her own lipstick shade.
The YAYA Dub YouTube sensation and television host “drew from retro fantasies to create her limited-edition lipstick: a muted peachy beige shade with a Matte finish. It also features an exclusive kiss-print packaging, creatively designed and signed by the MACMaker herself,” announced MAC socials.
Mendoza shares on her socials the reasons for her choice of shade saying she wanted it to be the universal nude lipstick that can be worn on any occasion and even gives tips on how to use it.
MAC noted how Maine Mendoza kept in mind the Filipina skin tone with a lipstick shade that flatters every skin tone.
