How cool is this?! M.A.C just came out with their Marilyn Monroe color collection that channels the legend’s sizzling sex appeal in shades that are all meticulously Marilyn, i.e. pure platinum Hollywood glamour! I LOVE the mysterious packaging and the Dazzle Glass best of all! Basically everything you need to capture the MM look. (From one MM to another, we love.)
FYI, The specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting and is obviously, Limited Edition.
The so-called Black Sitting by Milton Greene is a series of photographs of Marilyn Monroe. It took place in New York in 1956 before Marilyn left for California to make Bus Stop. This series remains the ULTIMATE Monroe-Greene achievement. For all its sexy fishnet stockings and provocative attitude it retains the saucy innocence of a little girl just playing dress-up.
Ok so I confess, red is not my go-to lip color of choice but how can you not love this shade of Scarlet Ibis in bright orange/red (matte) when it’s just so unapologetically Marilyn? It remains to be seen when I’ll actually wear it but I’ll keep you posted! The large eye shadow in soft white (Veluxe Pearl) is aptly named How to Marry (or at least achieve those Million dollar sparkly eyes) and the Penultimate Eyeliner in Rapid Black is exactly that. A pen that will help you achieve that ultimate precision liner. My fave by far has to be the Dazzle Glass. Love the name, both Dazzle and Phiff! (Again so Monroe) and it comes in a yummy sheer yellow peach frost. That make your lips look all dewy and moist. Sold!
