MAC just announced that its second collaboration with Ariana Grande is landing in September. The pop star's last collab with MAC was a lip color line this January. With a dark matte plum lip color, it was surprisingly goth for Grande's girly personal style.
This time around, Grande's creating lip colors for the girl who isn't into the vampy, metallic brown Kylie Lip Kit look — as you can tell from MAC's very pink campaign. Her MAC Viva Glam collection, which is out September 8th in North America, consists of a $17 matte orchid pink lipstick and a $16 neutral nude pink lipglass. The proceeds of both lip products will be donated to the MAC AIDS Fund.
In between these two makeup collab announcements, Grande managed to fit in her first clothing line. A prom-ready collection from Grande and UK-based brand Lipsy came out in March. She shared the news about her new MAC lip colors on her Instagram and on Snapchat, with behind-the-scenes shots from the campaign's claustrophobic dollhouse setup.
