Basic Bitches by Mac
Deep down, we all worry about whether or not we might be considered a basic bitch…
Do you wear Uggs with leggings? Have you ever posted a pic of a Starbucks drink on you Instagram? Do you look forward to The Bachelor every week? If your answer is “duh” to more than one of those questions, then odds are yes, you’re slightly basic. But don’t fret–there is a bright side to your Frappuccino-drinking, Marilyn-Monroe-quoting ways that comes in form of a new MAC palette. ICYMI, the beauty brand is on a roll this fashion month teasing new products backstage at shows.
Backstage at Milan Fashion Week, MAC senior makeup artist Netta Szekely teased the new palette, dubbed the “Basic Bitch,” which includes eight new eyeshadows and what appears to be a highlighter. The shadows range from a shimmery dark plum named “Shy Girl” to a light gray called “Me Me Me.” The highlighter, the largest pan on the palette, is called “Love This Bitch” and for a good reason–there’s a lot to love about its shimmery, soft pink hue.
While the palette’s range of hues are not so “basic,” our guess is that the Basic Bitch has been labeled as such because it has a little bit of everything–all of the key shimmers, neutrals, and bold shades that you could ever need to create a look.
There’s no word yet on when MAC will make our most basic dreams a reality. But it’s like the Victoria’s-Secret-7-for-$27 sale all over again
