Spotted backstage at Milan Fashion Week, MAC’s Basic Bitch palette is here to feed right into your most base basic needs. Netta Szekely
, a senior makeup artist with the brand, gave us a look at the goods on her Instagram yesterday, and we like what we see — eight new shadows, from a soft slate-gray called Me Me Me to Hell In Heels, a dark plum. There’s also a larger pan devoted to a pearly peach shade, appropriately named Love This Bitch, which looks like it’d make an excellent highlighter.
We asked MAC if basics everywhere could safely start their countdowns to the palette’s release, and the brand told us it’s just being tested for now. If they’re testing to see how many of us will crawl out from the woodwork and walk among the more interesting people, sipping on skinny frappuccinos and texting our friends about This Is Us
until we can finally add the palette to our well-stocked collection, then it’s already a success, considering the Instagram has nearly 2,000 likes.
