MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection
It’s amazing how one woman has come to signify glamor and sexiness for not just one but several generations of women in the 20th-21st Centuries.
She has two gorgeous looks that she works; one the sultry scarlet-lipped siren with the platinum blonde locks and sleepy eyes. The other, the fresh-faced, I-rolled-out-of-bed-looking-gorgeous kitten look with soft lips, loose waves, and Bambi-eyes.
MAC’s collection focuses emphasizing the lash line (liners, lashes, mascara instead of strong shadows), natural-looking skin, and a range of strong lip colors.
I like the concept if you’re a makeup collector (the packaging is beautiful), and this is a good reference collection if you want to start doing classic glamorous makeup but don’t have a clear idea where to start and what products to buy. Otherwise, you might not find anything that unique about the shades and products on offer since the drugstores are filled to the brim with cheaper alternatives of these classic colors.
MAC Marilyn Monroe collection will be available worldwide around October 2012.
