Missing "Million Dollar Decorators"? This Collection Will Help Fill the Mary McDonald Void
The sassy, red-hot interior designer has joined forces with Too Faced
Inspired by McDonald's signature chevron patterns (she gets absolutely giddy painting floors in these configurations -- the results of which are stunning), the "Joy to the Girls" collaboration will launch October 1.
How did this partnership come about? The same way most do -- it was born of a friendship between the folks involved, in this case, when Too Faced head honcho, Jerrod Blandino hired McDonald to redecorate his house and they quickly became best buds.
As Blandino told, WWD, "This is a really unique collaboration because it started off as a personal relationship first. [McDonald] has an amazing aesthetic. It's modern, yet classic. She is "Too Faced" in every way. With this collection we want people to be able to get a piece of this universe where Jerrod and Mary live. He designs faces and she designs places!"

McDonald explains the 4-palette collection; "If you're a fashionista, you need to transform yourself wherever you go. We wanted to find what's really fun and lively and would attract young women."
To that end, the offering includes; Jingle All the Way, $25, holds 11 eye shadows, blush, bronzer and a limited-edition iPhone 5 case. A Few of my Favorite Things, $56, contains 20 eye shadows, two blush shades, two bronzers, a full-size Lip Injection Color Bomb and a deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara. Be Merry and Bright, $45, is comprised of two palettes with six eye shadows in each, one bronzer in each, one blush in each, Luminizer, Lash Injection Mascara and an instruction booklet called Be Merry and How-to Be Bright Glamour Guide. Joy to the Girls, $45, includes 15 limited-edition eye shadows, Lashgasm Mascara and a Glamour Guide with three looks.
If you're itching to get your hands on some of this Too Faced fabulousness, WWD notes that, "A Few of My Favorite Things" will be sold exclusively at Sephora. "Be Merry and Bright" will be sold exclusively at Ulta and "Jingle All the Way" and "Joy to the Girls" will be available at both retailers and on Toofaced.com.
As McDonald's sometimes partner in crime/other times nemesis, Martin Bullard, would say, "Brilliant. Simply Brilliant."
