25 Crazy Beauty Collabs We Love

We told you about Rihanna, we told you about Kelly, but let’s talk about some of our favorite beauty collabs of ALL TIME. Only, instead of all of these special edition collections featuring a celebrity, these companies got a little more creative… think fictional characters, interior designers and everyone’s favorite pop artist. We may have been surprised by some of these creations at first, but now we’re trying to outbid other beauty collectors for the remaining shades on eBay.


1. MAC + Marge Simpson: We’ve already let the cat out of the bag on this one — but after 25 seasons, it’s about time Marge got some recognition for the fab lady she is. This line drops September 4, so get ready for everything yellow and blue.

2. MAC + Mia Moretti: One of MAC’s other 2014 collabs is with DJ and it-girl Mia Moretti. Her collection is actually a remix of her fave MAC shades to inspire your festival style and is available to shop now!

3. Shu Uemura + Takashi Murakami: Murakami is a super-influential contemporary Japanese artist who designed a holiday 2013 line for Japanese brand Shu Uemura inspired by his animated film, 6<3princess.

4. MAC + Cindy Sherman: Don’t let the clown couture look throw you off, Cindy Sherman is an incredible artist who transforms herself into all different people for her art, so a makeup collab makes serious sense. Props to MAC for pushing the envelope with this. (via The Guardian)

5. MAC + Barbie: This collab is a throwback to MAC 2007, and to the younger you who wanted everything in Barbie pink. (via MTV)

6. Laneige + pushBUTTON: The collaborators (two Korean powerhouses) aren’t what make this collection strange. Rather, the green puppies hidden in the spots remind us a little too much of Cruella de Vil’s dream coat. (via Glam Asia)

7. Inglot + The Lion King: We love us some Rafiki as much as the next girl, but we’re not sure we really want makeup advice from him. That said, Inglot’s “Savannah Sunset” line is looking pretty tempting. Snap it up here. (via Bella Sugar)

8. Sephora + Pantone ($40): Pantone named “Radiant Orchid” the color of 2014, and everything has been coming up orchids for our beauty and style picks since.

9. MAC + Lady Gaga + Cyndi Lauper: Back in 2010, Gaga and Cyndi Lauper teamed up with MAC to create some glamorous lip colors to benefit MAC’s AIDS fund. Girls just wanna have fun… and help people. (via Be)

10. Kiehl’s + Kenny Scharf: Scharf’s work looks more like it belongs on Cartoon Network than in your bathroom, but his colorful designs will definitely make your morning routine more fun. This holiday collection is still available at Kiehl’s.

11. Too Faced + Mary McDonald: McDonald may be known more for her interior design palettes, but we’ll take one of these 2013 palettes in a hot second. (via Musings of a Muse)

12. Urban Decay + Pulp Fiction ($34): In honor of Pulp Fiction‘s 20th anniversary, UD is releasing this palette inspired by the inimitable Mia Wallace. It’s got everything you need to recreate Uma Thurman’s dark and edgy look from the film (just in time for Halloween, too!).

13. ASOS + Anna Sui + Minnie Mouse: We’re super sad we missed the boat on this holiday set. It even came with Minnie-shaped lipstick! (via ASOS)

14. Nars + Guy Bourdin: If you’re a fan of the controversial French fashion photographer, you’re in luck. He inspired Nars’ last holiday collection, making just as many headlines for it as he did back in the day. (via Fashion Magazine)

15. Tweezerman + Isaac Mizrahi: Don’t pull down your beauty routine by pairing bright pigments with blah tools. Mizrahi’s whimsical designs will make your tweezers as fun as your palettes. (via RR Magazine)

16. Smashbox + Curtis Kulig: Just in time for V-Day ’13, Graffiti Artist Kulig’s iconic “Love Me” design was scrawled across Smashbox products. Graffiti + makeup = match made in heaven? (via Urban Moms)

17. Nails Inc. + Alexa Chung: We are big fans of Alexa and big fans of her new kale-based nail line, but we have to admit it seemed strange when we first heard about it. We still have one question: does this count as a serving of dark, leafy greens? (via WWD)

18. OPI + the Muppets: Kermy is a sweetheart, but we have to admit that Miss Piggy isn’t one of our beauty icons. However, the most recent movie inspired a line of glittery polishes we can all love. (via OPI)

19. Lancome + Alber Elbaz: Lanvin’s artistic director + the dreamy French beauty icon is a collab we can’t live without. Good thing it’s still available. (via Female Daily)

20. MAC + Romance Novels: While we don’t necessarily want to look like the heroines on the covers of romance novels, we are pretty excited for some new colors inspired by our fave beach reads. We’ve been counting down the days since we first heard about this new fall line. (via Temptalia)

21. MAC + Archie Comics: Are you a Betty or a Veronica? A question as iconic as the Jackie vs. Marilyn controversy. Whatever your leanings, MAC made a color collection for both legs of the Archie love triangle. (via Temptalia)

22. MAC + Hello Kitty: In 2008, MAC and Sanrio teamed up to bring our fave kitten her own makeup line. (via Temptalia)

23. MAC + Fafi: MAC’s Fafi line came out in 2008 as a follow-up to the success of the Barbie collection. We’re totally behind a beauty collab that also challenges feminine stereotypes. (via Steph’s Closet)

24. Nars + Andy Warhol: Once we saw this combo, we immediately wondered where it had been all our lives. Makeup + Andy Warhol = some seriously amazing art. (via Vanity Fair)

25. Tarte + Aqualillies: Synchronized swimming can be cool, and the Aqualillies prove it. Last summer, they teamed up with one of our fave beauty brands (eco- and skin-friendly!) for a gorgeous collection. If you’re as enamored as we are, a few pieces are still available on Tarte’s website.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
