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).
