All the latest buzz is focused on MAC's big Liberty of London collection, and I will be posting about that as soon as I finish taking pictures of my massive haul, but for now I thought I'd warm up with another big spring MAC collection - Fafi! Fafi is a French graffiti artist who collaborated with MAC in 2008 to create makeup featuring her unique drawings of women.
Here's what I got.

Here is the blush open:
Lip glosses in Cult Fave and Totally It:
Lipstick in Flash 'n' Dash:
Scarf (which retailed at $15 - a steal compared to the $95 scarf for the Liberty of London collection!)
And my favorite part of the collection, little figurines of the Fafinettes. From left to right their names are Monoka, Eriko and Ermine. I loved that the artist came up with backstories for each of them. You can read them all here.
Even the shopping bag had a cute "Fafinette" on it:
According to her website, Fafi's work "explores femininity through stereotypes" and her women are "sexy, funny, and occasionally aggressive." Here is one of her works in situ:
For a great review and analysis of Fafi's work as it relates to MAC, check out this blog entry. While I think MAC is a great line for Fafi's work, I could also see her working for Urban Decay, as both lines are considered edgy and youth-oriented.
