Holiday 2012: MAC + Marilyn Monroe Collection…

I love it when MAC goes all out for their holiday collection…there have been some SUPER memorable ones over the years but THIS takes the cake.  With someone as iconic as Marilyn Monroe as the backdrop….attention must be paid and that they did.  The packaging is GORGEOUS….and the colors are well – very Monroe.  When I have the collection in my hands I will do some swatches for you.

M∙A∙C Marilyn Monroe, a colour collection that channels the legend’s lustre and sex appeal in shades and formulas meticulously Marilyn.  Lipsticks in rapturous reds, gleaming Dazzleglass, a dramatic 35 Lash, False Lashes Extreme Black and Eye Shadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones provide silver-screen allure. The finishing touch: Nail Lacquers destined to be a girl’s best friend and Beauty
Powder to evoke that flawless Forever Marilyn.
