MAC to Change Names of Rodarte Products

MAC to Change the Name of Rodarte Pieces After Controversy

When we heard about MAC's collaboration with Rodarte we did big jumpy claps. See it's exciting for many reasons like a) we love MAC, b) we love Rodarte and c) their little love children will be very pretty. Fact. Trouble is, the sisters behind the fashion brand, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, have found themselves in a bit of hot water with the blogosphere over the naming of certain products. Say what? Rewind. The sisters took a recent trip from El Paso to Marfa, which served as inspiration behind their collection. But trouble started brewing when they named a frosty pink nail polish Juarez, which one blogger notes "is an impoverished Mexican factory town notorious for the number of women between the ages of 12 and 22 who have been raped and murdered with little or no response from police." MAC then released a statement in response saying it will donate some of the proceeds from the collection to help support those in need in Juarez. But the latest news is that product names are actually to be changed. Do you think that's a good thing? Or are you sad that what "was intended as a celebration of the beauty of the landscape and people in the areas" has been misinterpreted?
