MAC Good Luck Trolls

MAC Good Luck Trolls

mac good luck trolls collectionArtistry makeup brand MAC Cosmetics is known for some pretty outrageous collaborations over the years: Dame Edna, Barbie, Wonder Woman, Nasty Gal, Brooke Candy and Disney to name a few. (MAC launches 48 to 53 limited edition makeup collections per year.) But arguably the most surprising is the partnership with Good Luck Trolls, those wild-haired dolls that enjoyed a pop-culture moment in the 1980s.

Troll dolls were originally created in 1959 by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam. Legend has it that he couldn’t afford to buy his daughter Lila a Christmas gift so he carved a doll from his imagination. When Lila showed her special doll to classmates at school, they wanted one too. Thomas quickly started producing the dolls which became a sensation in the United States by the early 1960s. In fact, they became one of the most popular toys of the decade. Trolls enjoyed a resurgence again in the 1980s and early 90s. Much of the later fame came with the introduction of a video game. DreamWorks Animation is preparing to introduce a feature film this year based on the toys so expect another wave of Good Luck Troll mania. MAC is fueling the movement with a limited edition makeup collection that debuts on August 4th. Here is the official announcement:

“Hair we go! The wild-haired dolls of your youth bring their rainbow tufts, bejeweled bellies and lucky charms to MAC Good Luck Trolls – a crazy-hued collection as silly as the creatures themselves. From Lipglass in Bubble Butt to Eyeshadow in Suns out, Buns Out and Beauty Powder in Glow Rida…being a troll has never been so glamorous!” – MAC Cosmetics

    What I love most about Dave’s posts are the background story. Loved reading about the origination of the troll dolls and their truly humble beginning.

    As for the collection, I’m not a huge fan of most of it because the colours are a bit on the wild side for normal wear for me. But the packaging is to die for and the beauty powder seems like something I would enjoy. Will look forward to playing with it a bit once it lands in store.

    Fun concept. Think they missed out on a packaging marketing opportunity that would have made them walk off the MAC counters. Why would they not have made the lipstick with the trademark hair? @poundlounge

    This is an adorable collection. I remember being fascinated with trolls as a child and I wasn’t even sure why! Could’ve been the crazy hair, the large moon-like eyes or the jeweled belly button lol! They were so much fun to collect and this set is making me nostalgic.

    They look amazing! I love the packaging and I feel like this will be the most iconic collab since Barbie! Which sells on eBay for crazy prices still.
