It may come as a surprise that M.A.C.'s new spokeswoman is, well, a man. Until you hear that it's Dame Edna.
The Australian cross-dressing personality -- played by comedian Barry Humphries -- may have lavender hair and bejeweled gowns that bring to mind "Dynasty" reruns.
But her makeup collection is surprisingly hip and campy. The purple packaging, dotted with rhinestones and a print of Edna's signature shades, is pure fun.
Though the color names (Varicose Violet, for example) might not sound appealing, the shades are really covetable. Our favorite is the pale purple-y pink Lipglass in "Splendid." (In the end, purple is more universally flattering on faces than hairstyles.)
