Rossy de Palma, who’s been the muse of designer Jean Paul Gaultier and acclaimed film director Pedro Almodóvar, has assumed many roles in her decades-long career: actress, director, musician, and fashion model. Now, in collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, she’s adding another job to her resume–beauty entrepreneur–with the launch of a limited edition capsule collection.
Hitting stores October 5th, the 22-piece makeup line reflects de Palma’s colorfully unapologetic aesthetic. The brand’s logo bears her signature and an illustration of her iconic profile over Technicolor packaging. Several of the items, including the eyeshadow palettes and a concealer duo, showcase de Palma’s striking features in holography. The price tags range from $17 to $32.
The entire collection includes lipstick, lipgloss, two eye shadow palettes, blush, finishing powders, a concealer duo, fake eyelashes, and body glitter reminiscent of a scene in 1980s Spain.
The tagline, “Uninhibited artistry by Spanish actress Rossy de Palma,” conjures the Julieta actress’s unconventional beauty and edge, which shot her to stardom in the 80s.
Almodóvar famously spotted de Palma at a café in Madrid. Enamored by her personality after a bit of small talk, he offered her a small role in his 1987 film Law of Desire. Since that auspicious start, she’s starred in seven more Almodóvar movies, numerous television series, and short films. Her eccentric style and Picasso-esque features have inspired the imaginations of some of the world’s most renowned fashion designers, including Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Mugler.
De Palma describes her MAC line as a mixture of “Surrealism, Dadaism, and Colorful,” and with product names like “Phenomenal Woman” and “Self Esteem,” one could say they aptly describe the woman herself.
