Carine Roitfeld by Mario Sorrenti for MAC – this marks the first time Sorrenti has shot for MAC!

Think of this as a Biz meets Beauty Bytes moment – in a move that should please eyeliner afficianados everywhere Carine Roitfeld has teamed with MAC to create a limited edition color collection “with a focus on eyes and brows that reflect Carine’s signature look: smoky eye, bold brows and nude lips.” Sounds brilliant and perfect for the expected Fall 2012 release date, certain to coincide with the launch of Roitfeld’s magazine CR Fashion Book.
