my exclusive interview with fafi!

today (02/13/08) is the official launch of MAC's collaboration with french graffiti artist, fafi. fafi herself was at henri bendel to introduce the new makeup line. i was super fortunate to get a little time with fafi - she gave me an exclusive interview for makeup loves me readers!

in this picture - fafi, me and a fafinette come to life at the event.

first of all, fafi is just as coy and minx-y as the characters she creates. she has the those blunt, french-girl bangs, clear skin and doe eyes.

mlm: what made you want to collaborate with MAC?

fafi: they contacted me. here i was this little french girl in their big american meeting, but it seemed like they were the right company for my line.

mlm: which is your favorite product in the fafi for MAC line?

fafi: the iridescent pressed powders because you can really see the graphic i created on the case.

mlm: who do you envision buying this collection?

fafi: young people and also metro women. people who appreciate the craziness and originality (of the collaboration).

mlm: what's the best thing about being french?

fafi: being natural. the french don't say things that they don't mean. also, i love living in paris because you can people watch and see all kinds of women there.

mlm: which fafinette are you most similar to?

fafi: each of them contains a bit of me.

mlm: which is your favorite?

fafi: ermine.

mlm: me too! what can we expect to see coming up for fafi?

fafi: i'm working on a comic.

i bought a fafi makeup bag at the event and had fafi "tag" it - it reads "fafi pour marina". i am still in awe of my time with fafi, she truly is effortlessly cool. check out the whole line here.

and, hint, hint to all boyfriends: these whimsical, feminine characters make for a great valentine's day gift.

Thanks for letting me who know Fafi is!!! I just posted a picture I took of the Fafi window display at my local MAC store on my blog. I was writing about how I didn't know who Fafi is, but the new line looks awesome nonetheless!
