Cindy Sherman On Your Face

Cindy Sherman, self portrait

Cindy Sherman has collaborated with MAC to create her own limited edition costume make-up line (launch date September 29th). Of course, that’s not how it’s being billed; this stuff is limited edition affordable art in the form of bronzer and lipstick.  Look out 20×200, you’ve got some competition!  I’m guessing customers don’t actually get an edition number, not that this will make any difference to the sale. Speaking of which, this may be a stupid question, but is anyone going to buy this?

Oh wow. Love Cindy Sherman. But, gotta go with goofy on this product. Is she actually involved? Or are they just renting her name? 

There is a certain connection I grant, but it feels tangential to me.

Cindy Sherman did not have anything to do with the collection, she only did the three photographs using the cosmetics.  The name of the line is a misleading use of the photo caption.

I’m happy to adjust the photo caption if you like, I’m just not sure I understand how you’d like it to read.

I wasn’t referring to your heading, but to MAC’s use of her name for the line, which was to be used  only in “photograph by….”.

This is really twisted of ole Cindy.  First, she mocks her older constituency with her Hollywood portraits, some of the cruelist anti-feminist photographs ever made, then she endorses the cosmetics that they will probably snap up.
