At first I thought the MAC-Dame Edna combination was ever-so-slightly weird. I mean, when was the last time any of us looked at Dame Edna and thought beauty icon????

Follow my beauty regime possums, and you’ll never be cosmetically challenged.

– Dame Edna

Well, that’s high promise: I am a beauty editor, and I’m cosmetically challenged just about every time I ready myself for a hot night out!

That said, I am a little fearful of embodying the beauty advice of a drag queen.

It’s a pretty comprehensive line though, all in mystical fairy-dust-like shades in a very retro lavender casing that is topped off with a signature red logo based on a pair of Dame Edna’s glases.

The line includes two shades of nail polish, a highlight powder, two eye shadow trios, three lipsticks and three lip glosses. Longtime MAC fans may see a lot of similarity between these shades and the Heatherette collection – but I’m loving it! The frosty pastels will really complement anything you acquire from their Chill looks. (More on that coming very soon!)
