If you don’t already know – MAC Cosmetics is one of my all-time favourite beauty brands… it’s lucky there isn’t anywhere that sells MAC near where I live, otherwise I would have bankrupted myself on lipsticks and eye shadows years ago!
For several years now, MAC has done some incredible special edition ranges – from VIVA GLAM (partnered with the likes of Nicki Minaj) to Archie Comic themed eyeliner for that Wonder Woman look to a collaboration with the most chic pig on the planet – Miss Piggy.
This time around, MAC are channelling the timeless, effortless style of one of the biggest fashion and beauty icons ever to have lived: Marilyn Monroe. The range includes everything you need for that polished, Monroe look – from eyeliner to brow pencil, from Vogue favourite, Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder peach highlighter, to high gloss nail polish; and my personal favourite – the Marilyn Monroe lipstick. From the nude-shaded Pure Zen to the plum Deeply Adored, I covet every one (£15.50 each – try Scarlet Ibis for that classic Monroe pout)!
The whole collection is bedecked in smart black and white packaging, with iconic images of the lady herself on each one.
