Padma Lakshmi's MAC Collection Has Finally Landed and You Can Get It Here

Plus, the gorgeous, gold packaging couldn't be more luxe.

Padma Lakshmi Dishes on Her New Short Hair

If you're anything like us, you've been craving something for a good few months lately ... and nope, it's not a craving for something that was cooked up in the Top Chef kitchen. In fact, we think this is even more delicious. Any guesses?

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

We're talking, of course, about the sunset and desert-hued eyeshadows, creamy lipsticks and just-sparkling-enough glosses, natural-looking blushes, and perfectly angled brushes that make up Padma Lakshmi's capsule collection for MAC Cosmetics. Ever since the Top Chef host announced the collaboration back in January, we've been anxious to get our hands on the collection. And, at long last, today is the day that we can finally shop the goods. (Is it too early to pop some champagne? Or, to swipe on some mossy green eyeliner?) 

Available to shop now on MAC's website — and in stores starting on March 15 — the collection comes in beautiful gold packaging iinspired by Turkish plates in Padma's own kitchen. But, if you think the products look gorgeous on your vanity, just wait till you see how they look on your face. 

Padma knows a thing or two about beauty, and was deeply involved in dreaming up hues and textures for her MAC project.

The resulting products flatter a wide range of skin tones, and come in dreamy, painterly hues that run the gamut from apricot-gold to deep plum and mossy green. 

We like to think that the goods will help us channel a bit of Padma's worldly, bohemian glamour — or, at least the Blue Blood lipstick might help us mimic her signature red pout. Shop some of our favorite products from the ultra chic new line, below.
