So, yeah: This summer, fictional housewife Marge Simpson joins a long line of boldfaced names—including, most recently, Lorde, Kelly Osbourne, and, er, Maleficent—who have inspired MAC cosmetics makeup collections. The 10-piece line includes lip glosses, false eyelashes, nail stickers, brightly colored eyeshadows (yes, there’s a bright blue) and blushes, though, curiously, none come in shades of yellow. (How can you really get the Marge Simpson look without aping her signature skin tone?)
Here’s what “Marge” “has to say” about the products, according to a press release certainly not written by a Simpsons scribe: “They’re all so great, but I must say that Lisa’s Spikes really works well with my skin tone and of course, Beehive Blue complements my hair perfectly.”
The line is set to hit the web Aug. 28 and real live stores
in Springfield everywhere Sept. 5—but those attending Comic-Con later this month will get a special sneak peek at it during a special one-day sale July 26. Until then, maybe we should take some time to wonder why, exactly, people keep trying to make Sex Symbol Marge Simpson happen.
