When MAC Cosmetics suggested a collaboration to Jeremy Scott, Creative Director of Moschino, he knew that he wanted it to have a musical theme.
The new MAC Cosmetics x Jeremy Scott collaboration consists of a boombox shaped eye shadow palette with 29 shades, a lip palette in a compact shaped like a cassette tape and a cheek palette in a mix CD. The limited edition beauty products will be available at MAC Cosmetics starting February 8, 2018.

The designer told Vogue that music is always playing at his home in the Los Angeles hills. “I love how music can take a room and alter it. It makes me feel real cozy. It’s just kind of my house’s calling card.” He compared music to makeup stating, “You could have a white T-shirt and jeans on but do this full face of makeup and it’s a totally different effect than a stripped-down look. I think it’s fascinating.”
The new palettes contain a wide variety of colors suitable for multiple skin tones. “I really wanted to be able to capture as many people’s personalities [as possible] at the same time,” said Scott.
He continued, “I wanted people to be able to experiment and inspire them to try something new because they already have their wheelhouse here. I’m not against taking an eyeshadow and putting it on your lips as a lipstick. I think, honestly, true beauty is confidence and it comes from you feeling like, ‘I feel good.’ So if white eyeshadow on your lips is what makes you feel good, then you look good.”
Scott used MAC Cosmetics in the Moschino Fall 2017 fashion show. For the occasion Senior Makeup Artist Regan Rabanal channeled Sixties Twiggy with natural makeup, fruit punch lips and faux lashes.
