El Hub: C’mon, sweets! Hurry it up, or we’ll miss the movie.
Me: Coming! Five more minutes.
El Hub: You said that 10 minutes ago. Whatever you’re doing, is it more important than kettle corn?
Me: Um…YEAH?! It’s only the new MAC Marilyn Monroe collection, which I’ve been looking forward to since forever.
El Hub: Come on! You can play with it later.
Me: There is no later. Only now! Cool your jets. I’m almost done uploading a few pics for the girls.
The MAC Marilyn Monroe collection: pics and swatches of nine pieces from the launch
What do you get when you combine an iconic, sultry siren of the silver screen, MAC makeup and glamour?
Answer: MAC Marilyn Monroe.
The 29-piece release is available online now at maccosmetics.com and arrives to ravish North American MAC locations October 4 (coming to international locations some time next month) with new and re-promoted pieces for eyes, lips, cheeks and nails, all of it dressed to the nines in special red, white and black packaging.
MAC loaded the collection with lip products designed to re-create Marilyn’s signature pout, and along with loving the lipsticks, I’m also pretty jazzed about the Beauty Powder in Forever Marilyn ($28) — a sheer pale peach highlighter — and the two Powder Blushes in pale coral Legendary and neutral pinkish beige The Perfect Cheek.
I can’t wait to try another Marilyn makeup look like that one from last week.
This is gonna be fun.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
