MAC is known for many collaborations, and now they present a collection with none other than Marilyn Monroe!
Here is Mac's description for this collection...
"Pure platinum Hollywood glamour. Channel the legends luster & sex appeal in a colour collection distinctively Marilyn. It's everything you need to capture the MM look"
I ended up ordering 4 of the 5 lipsticks, along with a beauty powder, Dazzleglass, lipstick, and brow wax(not pictured). I already owned both eye liners, as well as 2 of the 3 lip liners. I passed on all of the eyeshadows and polishes.
Now onto more pics and swatches...
Swatched Heavily and Blended
Charmed I'm Sure
Phiff!, Scarlet Ibis, Love Goddess, Charmed I'm Sure, Deeply Adorned
Eye Liners: Fascinating, Smolder
Lip Liners: Redd, Beet
Here are a few shade comparisons...
Lady Danger, Scarlet Ibis, Sail La Vie
SI is a tad bit more red then Lady Danger, and not as bright and orange as Sail La Vie
Girl About Town, Love Goddess, Moxie
These swatches were to show how red LG pulls on me in comparison to 2 other darker shade pinks
Red Racer, Charmed I'm Sure, Russian Red
CIM is a tad bit darker than Red Racer. Russian Red pulls more orange and is more brighter
Deeply Adorned, Rocker
As you can tell, DA is a bit lighter and a bit more red than Rocker
Overall, I'm pleased with my choice of items with the exception of the beauty powder. I'd have to admit I purchased it more so for the packaging, but was hoping it would be a little suitable for my complexion. But sadly it isn't. It's too chalky for me to even wear it as a highlighter. It's not as smooth as many other extremely light highlighter's that Iv'e come across. However, I do plan on giving it a shot, and will be sure to share my thoughts. Can't wait to try a few looks out with my new goodies :)
Do you plan on purchasing any items from this collection?
