Get ready for some serious eye candy ladies…
Oh my god – Marilyn Monroe + MAC instore in October.
It’s rare I get this excited about a MAC collection – the last one was the Disney Venomous Villains where I loved loved loved the packaging, but when I saw the promo pics for this new one I knew instantly it has the potential to top even that.
MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection 2012
The world has of course gone slightly Marilyn crazy since Michelle Williams portrayal in “My Week With Marilyn” and the company who acquired the estate – Authentic Brands Group LLC – have teamed up with MAC to create a nostalgic collection in her honour.
From the promo photos the packaging for this collection looks simply gorgeous. Every item (with the exception of the lip liners, pencils and mascara) has an artistic black and white photo of her on it, and while these are pretty enough to probably con me into buying, the actual products look really really good as well.

While I am never much of a fan of MAC’s nail lacquers, so will probably give them a miss, I am really taken almost everything else.
The Eyeshadow colours all look good, I especially like the look of Preferred Blonde, and Show Girl (although I will want to see how close this is to Knight Devine before I decide if it’s worth it). The Powder Highlighter, Forever Marilyn, is another I want to have a closer look at – i’ve been umming and ahhing about acquiring Soft & Gentle as a highlight for some time, so I am planning on swatching the two together before making the decision.
Of the two Powder Blushes Legendary is my favourite and unlike any other colours I own, (surely thats enough of a justification?) I think that this is my favourite picture of her that they have used as well. I also really like the look of a couple of the lipsticks, Charmed I’m Sure and Love Goddess look particularly nice.
I have also been spending quite a bit of time recently browsing the MAC website looking at the false lashes, trying to decide which ones I wanted for my christmas parties… after seeing these no. 35s I think I have my answer, these are described as being dramatic which I love but without being too full and thick - gorgeous.
If you too know your wallet is going to be bruised, battered and bleeding by the time you have finished make sure you get down to your nearest MAC counter when it hits in October – this collection is set to be iconic and will go VERY fast!
