One of the most popular cult makeup lines ever, MAC Cosmetics introduced their Barbie collection in 2007. It was very successful generating $9 million dollars in retail sales. The limited edition MAC x Barbie doll was just as fabulous as any trendy girl and came with a makeup case and a glam modern look. She retailed at $239.99. Don’t get me wrong, I am a makeup addict…I love being a makeup artist but this is one MAC item I couldn’t image buying.
Now, Stila Cosmetics is now joining in on the Barbie fad. Stila Cosmetics has teamed up with America’s Beauty, Barbie for a limited edition collection of cosmetics that will be introduced Spring 2009. Stila is so honored and thrilled to be the official prestige makeup sponsor for Barbie in 2009. The partnership between Barbie and Stila is ideal as both brands represent the perfect blend of sophistication, fun and innovation. Stila will produce the collection and will also be a backstage beauty makeup sponsor for Mattel’s first Barbie runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in February. Also in February, the collaboration kicks off with limited edition Barbie™ Loves Stila offerings that will launch just in time for Barbie’s anniversary celebrations. The collection will be available at Sephora’s 5th Avenue store in New York, the international Sephora locations and at Sephora.com only. The four Barbie™ Loves Stila beauty cans collection will feature four Decades of Beauty at $40.00 and inside a look booklet describing the beauty and fashion wardrobes for each doll. In 2009, it’s still a Barbie world, and deep down we’re all Barbie girls.
