Blackpink's Lisa has a new job - as MAC's global brand ambassador. Scratch that. It's waaaay bigger news than that. 

The Thai rapper/dancer has made history, no less, as the first K-pop star to be the face of MAC. And now she's fronting MAC's Frosted Firework Holiday Campaign -  a brand-new line-up of products to keep you looking glowy all throughout the season.

And what could be more fitting?

First, it's almost prophetic. Blackpink has a famous mantra: 'in your area'. It's a nod to the global domination this K-pop band are experiencing. 

They're not kidding. In the past two months, Blackpink has dropped its first full-length album, released a documentary on Netflix and now they are dominating your make-up (opens in new tab) bag, too.

Second, Lisa is everything that the MAC DNA is made of - eccentric, cool and bold in her beauty choices, be it bubblegum pink highlighter, lilac winged eyeliner (opens in new tab) or out-there nail (opens in new tab) art.

Now the Holiday Collection (opens in new tab) has landed and it's everything we expect of a MAC party look. Full of bright and metallic products, it was inspired by "the fairytale of surprise, delight and ambient beauty of fireworks," according to the press release.

The full range of limited-edition products includes five metallic eyeshadows, five lipsticks (one of which Lily is holding below), five lip glosses, three double-ended eyeliner pencils, and two highlighters, as well as lust-worthy gift sets, including Firewerk Lip Kit (opens in new tab)and Wow-Factor Eye Kit (opens in new tab).
