startrek-1Loving makeup and being a geek aren’t mutually exclusive. You can be a hardcore geek and still like to get all dolled up because geeks come in all different shapes, sizes and genders.

MAC Cosmetics seems to get that better than anyone and over the years, they’ve launched several lines that have been inspired from our favourite things, such as Wonder Woman, Archie Comics, and Rocky Horror Picture Show.

MAC Cosmetics have announced that one of their upcoming lines will be a 25-piece collection inspired by Seven of Nine, Commander Deanna Troi, Uhura and Vina the Orion slave girl from Star Trek. The collection is being produced as a way of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,” MAC creative director James Gager said. “For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.”

The MAC x Star Trek collection will be available starting in September 2016. It can be purchased beforehand at an exclusive pre-sale at the Gaslamp MAC store on Thursday, 21 July 2016 during the San Diego Comic Con.
