Pearl Thusi launches collaboration with MAC Cosmetics

In a private launch attended by JustNje on Thursday, 20 February 2020, Pearl Thusi and world-renowned beauty brand, MAC Cosmetics, described the collaboration as a first of its kind.

The star-studded event, held at Sandton’s Alice & Fifth, saw Pearl Thusi and MAC Cosmetics showcasing additions to the beauty brand’s product range. The two new collections, Me Kit and Power Kit, showcase the multi-faceted personality of Pearl Thusi, allowing people of all skin tones to have a subtle daily look and a bold evening look.

Pearl described her collaboration with MAC Cosmetics as a full-circle moment, as she reminisced about her days as a 15-year-old model who learnt about makeup through the brand. She explained that both collections appealed to all demographics, stating, “Makeup is for everyone, male, female, transgender, whatever you’ve chosen to be in your life, makeup is for you. People are multi-faceted, and there wasn’t going to be just the ‘Me’ look. As a woman, I know that everyone out there wants to switch it up every now and again and own their power.”

The event hosted some of South Africa’s most popular personalities, handpicked by the guest of honour, with many showing their support on social media. Nadia Jaftha, Tamara Dey, Basetsana Kumalo and Moozlie were some of those in attendance. MTV Base presenter, Kim Jayde, played host for the evening and rapper, Gemini Major, performed for the intimate crowd.
