Barbie Loves MAC -- And We Do Too!

02/21/2007 at 03:30 PM ET

My four-year-old is totally perplexed about my relationship with Barbie. “Why don’t you like her, Mommy? Why?” “Well,” I answer, “Barbie doesn’t really do anything, except look good — and she dresses like a Valley Girl.” Enter the limited edition MAC Barbie. She not only has a profession — high-flying make up artist — she is cool. She looks state-of-the-art hip in her ethnic tunic, striped jeans, and thigh-high boots. I like that she totes around her make up case — very professional– and that her boobs, while undeniably there, are but a subtle feature. As these limited-edition Barbies have flown off the shelves, you’ll have to find your own on Ebay. I also love MAC’s first ever color collaboration with Mattel, a line of modern, bright eye shadows, blushes, liners and lipsticks. The aptly titled Barbie Loves MAC packaging features a pink silhouette of Barbie in her iconic ponytail. My daughter can play with the doll. I’ll happily play with the makeup. — Alison Singh Gee

Lol..Caroline is retarded. The makeup is for PEOPLE, not the doll, genius.
I’m 15 and I played with barbies when I was younger – and my self-esteem is just fine, I’m 5’2″ and 125 pounds and I know I look great the way I am. So all of you saying that barbie makes girls anorexic..you all need to get over yourselves. It’s a doll.
