MM&M

MAC Cosmetics and a Hollywood icon have given us another reason to look forward to fall, besides boots and heavy knit sweaters. I told you about the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection awhile back, but further details have emerged! I’ve been waiting with bated breath for information about this release, and I wanted to share what I now know with you. The collection is said to be around 30 pieces, and is set for its U.S. release this October. From what I’ve seen, the packaging looks chic and sultry, much like the woman who inspired it. What we have to look forward to this fall is as follows:

Eye Shadow $15.00, Limited Edition

  • Preferred Blonde (Veluxe Pearl): Pale champagne beige
  • How to Marry (Veluxe Pearl): Soft white
  • Showgirl (Veluxe Pearl): Dark blue grey
  • Silver Screen (Veluxe Pearl): True silver

Lipstick $14.50, Limited Edition

  • Deeply Adored (Matte): Deep Scarlet
  • Charmed I’m Sure (Matte):  Dark true red
  • Scarlet Ibis (Matte): Bright orange-red (Repromote)
  • Love Goddess (Satin): Mid-tone red pink
  • Pure Zen (Cremesheen): Hot Nude

Dazzleglass $19.50, Limited Edition

  • Phiff!: Sheer yellow peach (Repromote)
  • Little Rock: Soft sheer white with pearlized pigments

Eye Kohl $15.00, Permanent

  • Smolder: Intense black
  • Fascinating: Intense matte white

Lip Pencil $14.00, Permanent

  • Beet: Vivid reddish-pink
  • Reed: Clearly red
  • Cherry: Vivid bright blue-red

Beauty Powder $23.00, Limited Edition

  • Forever Marilyn: Sheer pale peach highlighter

Powder Blush $20.00, Limited Edition

  • Legendary: (Satin) Pale soft coral
  • The Perfect Cheek: (Matte) Neutral pink beige

Nail Lacquer $16.00, Limited Edition

  • Rich, Rich, Rich (Pearl): Glittery Gold
  • Orange Kid (Cream): Coral (Repromote)
  • Vintage Vamp (Cream): Rich deep retro wine (Permanent)
  • Stage Red (Cream): Dark red berry
  • Flaming Rose (Cream): True red

On my wish list is the Forever Marilyn Beauty Powder for sure, and most likely a powder blush, Dazzleglass and a few lipsticks. The eyeshadows sound tempting since veluxe pearl is my favorite MAC eyeshadow formulation, but I’ll wait to swatch those in person and let you know my thoughts. Are you wanting anything already? Do tell! If so, I suggest getting to your MAC counter as soon as this collection hits stores, because these will sell fast not only to cosmetics connoisseurs but Marilyn fans and collectors. Make a list, and check it twice.
