From flying to New York city to meeting other MAC Makers from all over the world, Maine Mendoza has long been looking forward to the official and exclusive launch of her lipstick collection with MAC. Already in the works last February, Maine wanted to personally deliver the good news to all makeup enthusiasts out there, especially because this isn’t the first time Maine worked with MAC.

And the long wait is almost over. Highlighting beauty in bold red and glossy lips, the first Filipina MAC Maker has launched her line in an exclusive gathering with Maine’s closest friends in the industry. Beginning the night seated in a long dinner table, she was indeed a character of her own.


Filling the night with fun and laughter, Maine was undeniably the life of the party with her natural humor and bright, buoyant aura taking charge. No wonder how everyone was kept captivated in spending the major beauty night with Maine, even staying for the after party a few steps from the intimate affair.

Featuring neon-lit backgrounds, human-sized MAC lipsticks, chandeliers, and fancy swings, every angle was a well-intended opportunity to strike a pose. As the guests took their turns on the well-decorated vignettes, an overflowing amount of food and bubbly was passed around as the steady rhythm of music kept everyone on their feet.

Finally, without missing a beat, the main event began, with Maine Mendoza entering the room in a modest little black dress and tousled bangs, worn to highlight the second offering of her MAC Maker collaboration. To finish off the look, makeup artist RB Chanco joined her onstage to apply the MAC x Maine Mendoza lipstick and slicked with a generous coating of lipglass for that now signature puckered pout.
