Marilyn Monroe Takes Over MAC

Last week I attend the exclusive viewing of the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection before it hits stores this coming Thursday October 4th. It was a small yet very cute event where many lucky ladies enjoyed some cocktails, good company, and delicious canapés. Besides the fantastic atmosphere (they even had a Marilyn Monroe model!), the collection itself is absolutely stunning. The colour selections are spot on to this iconic sex symbol. From eyebrow stain to shimmer shadows, everything is perfection. But of course, the lipsticks are what stood out the most. The variety of reds are amazing and oh so Marilyn! For those of you searching for that perfect red lip, you will most likely find it in this collection. Even for you modest ladies out there, do not shy away from this collection, there’s something for you too! So take a look at what I purchased.

I got 2 products…but I might have to go back for more.

My first purchase was the powder blush in “Legendary”.

When I first laid my eyes on this blush I had to have it! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. Of course pictures never really do justice, but it’s actually way more on the matte peachy side. I’ve been wearing it everyday since I got it (hence the crazy finger prints all over it).

It’s a nice natural light wash of colour.

Second product is a dazzleglass in “Phiff!”

Another peachy colour…what can I say, I love peach colours in the fall ;D (I was going to swatch this on my lips but decided to save it for an upcoming tutorial, so stay tuned for that!)

The checklist of what is in the collection.

Remember to visit your local MAC store on October 4th to check out this amazing Marilyn Monroe collection! You will not regret it!
