MAC Cosmetics has finally unveiled its full Aladdin makeup collection. The brand first announced that it would release makeup in partnership with Disney to celebrate the new live-action Aladdin film hitting theaters on May 24. The film will star Will Smith (Genie), Naomi Scott (Jasmine), and Mena Massoud (Aladdin) and as usual, Disney couldn't resist a makeup collection to accompany the resurgence of one of its most classic animated films.
At the time (and to Aladdin fans' horror) it seemed that the collection would only include three products.
The brand first revealed products from the MAC collection in early March.
The photo displayed a bronzer, a nine-pain eye shadow palette, and a pink lipstick. The products were cute but fans had a few reservations about the color options and the amount of product. Why didn't the brand incorporate more makeup colors that represented the warm and jewel tones of the original Aladdin animated film? And why did the brand only show us three products?
Thankfully, MAC Cosmetics has finally released photos of the entire MAC x Disney Aladdin makeup collection.
We're still getting the eye shadow pan, bronzer compact, and lipstick but there's a little more to this Disney beauty tribute. The brand previewed more lipstick shades, lip glosses, and a highlighter. Any Disney fans with hearts set on the Aladdin-inspired collaboration should prepare their hearts. Make more room in those beauty bags for these grabs.
Unfortunately, A LOT of beauty lovers still have strong critiques about the full collection.
One of the most popular critiques of the collection is that the brand went with colors that are too safe and do not fully reflect the beauty of the animated film — or the live-action for that matter.
"They should've at least added Jasmine's clothes color... and Abu's vest... and Iago colors... and Rajah's orange... and Rafiki's... oh wait, that's another movie," one fan joked.
The point is that Aladdin is a super colorful film that all but begs for a makeup collection to take advantage of that inspiration.
Several other people complained that the bronzer is too dark for them.
"D*** it’s too dark for me. When will company’s make bronzers and highlights for everyone? Especially for limited edition things," another fan wrote.
The problem created only ONE bronzer for the collection. Creating one complexion product is always going to result in way too many people not being able to get that shade. A brand should release no less than three bronzers to cater to fair, medium, and deep skin tones.
If you're obsessed with the colors provided in the Aladdin-inspired collection by MAC, then keep this release date in mind.
The collection will hit the MAC Cosmetics stores and online site on May 16! That's a little over two weeks away so prepare to hitch the magic carpet and scoop up this collection when it drops.
