Does MAC's Collaboration With Photographer Cindy Sherman Look Like A Makeup Malfunction?

Photographer Cindy Sherman and MAC have teamed up on a fall makeup collection, and MAC just released some totally eye-catching promo shots. The images artfully depict what could be described as makeup malfunctions, but since it's Cindy Sherman, a photographer famous for using her own face as a canvas, we'll chalk them up to seriously cool works of art that fall under MAC's motto of makeup as "Our medium of transformation." Using three different palettes, Sherman stars as three unique characters—a clown, an overdone doyenne, and what seems to be a pink-cheeked ingenue. Besides the vivid "clown" collection, for the most part, the products are beautifully wearable. But why not channel Sherman and get experimental?
