If the red lipsticks in the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection make you do grabby hands in the air (grabby, grabby, grabby!), you’re not the only one! 🙂
But don’t let those lovely lippies monopolize your affections, especially if you like pressed highlighting powders and sweet nothings whispered in your ear.
With a soft shine that whispers, “happy birthday, Mr. President,” MAC’s new pale peach Beauty Powder in Forever Marilyn ($28) seeks to play up skin tones this fall without looking obvious or highlighting pores…
Pale and medium skin tones, that is. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to wear Forever Marilyn with my darker NC42 skin tone that doesn’t result in it looking ashy on me. I tried it as a highlighter, but that didn’t work, nor did wearing it as an all-over face powder.
Sorry, Tim Gunn. I tried.
One thing’s for sure: I love the fine, silky formula and inspired matte finish with its whisper of shine (perfect for subtle highlighting).
Lighter lovelies, you’re in luck! 🙂 With Forever Marilyn, you’ll be delicately radiant, and passersby will wonder if that glow of yours is natural, especially if you pair it with a foundation with a similar finish (like MAC Face and Body).
