As you have absolutely heard, the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection, while not terribly unique in terms of shades, is one of the most talked about MAC Collections to date. Really, who doesn’t love them some Marilyn?
Marilyn Monroe, despite her turbulent life and death, is an icon. A gorgeous woman with the looks that screamed Hollywood and the body every woman still wants to this day.
The MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection sold out pretty much instantaneously in terms of the cheek and lip products. Only one Beauty Powder was released in the shade Forever Marilyn.
What the MAC website has to say about Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder:
It’s everything you need for flawless MM skin in a special compact featuring a photograph of Marilyn. Delicately tinted in a sheer pearl peach. Apply as a highlight, soft blush or overall finish. Limited Edition.
10 g / 0.35 US oz
Forever Marilyn (sheer pale peach highlighter) is a really pale, almost white peach shade. I found it to be rather chalky and way too pale for my NW25 tone. It has a slightly matte finish (very slight sheen) and fair skinned beauties will like the shine control. I think people are mostly going to be lemming this for the packaging.
For more information on this collection, please see the Official Press Release.
MAC Marilyn Monroe Dazzleglass retails for $28.00 and is available at your local MAC counter (such as Nordstrom) or store. It’s very limited edition and likely sold out, but it doesn’t hurt to call and see if you can snag one!
