Get your self-portrait on with Cindy Sherman's MAC Colour Collection

MAC is really killing it this summer. First they announced a Gareth Pugh collaboration, then threw together the unlikely duo of Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin (hello dream foster parents!) and now they've announced a limited edition collection with photographer, Cindy Sherman.

Sherman is one of the most famous photographers in the whole world, if not the highest paid one. Alone in her studio, she transforms herself into other characters using lighting, camera angles, costumes and cosmetics.  The concept of a makeup collaboration with Cindy Sherman is so clever that it's surprising no one has thought of it before.

Launching at the end of September, the Cindy Sherman Color Collection features bold and vibrant lipsticks, eyeshadows, chromographic pencils and loose pigments. Some of our favorites include Show Orchid hot pink lipstick, Royale matte violet eyeshadow and the High-Def Cyan pencil.

In her three promo shots (including the one pictured above) Sherman uses the makeup in some pretty innovative ways. Who else could pull off bruise-colored contours? To get your cosmetic creative juices flowing, we've rounded up a few of Cindy Sherman's photos for you to browse (see below). The limited edition collection ends right before Halloween. Coincidence? We think not.
