MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection Holiday Autumn Winter 2012

Growing up I was obsessed with MAC, I was shamefully a 13 year old girl saving all her pennies for just one thing from the latest collection, and I’m still in love with the collections they do. Admittedly lately I’ve not been so into a lot of the collections, and to be honest I think it was the Hello Kitty collection back in 2009 that I was really super eager for but this, oh this is just perfection! Not only am I a make up addict, but I am a huge, huge Marilyn Monroe fan as you all know. This year marks 50 years ago since America's most iconic beauty Marilyn Monroe passed away and yet half a century after her untimely death, the world is still so in love. This collection is the most perfect tribute, and her star truly shines brighter than ever for sure!

The collection really is pure platinum Hollywood glamour. Make like MAC and ‘channel the legend's luster & sex appeal in a colour collection distinctively Marilyn. It's everything you need to capture the MM look. Specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting.’ The colours are just wonderful and everything you could possibly want to channel Marilyn’s iconic beauty look is here from a rosy pink blusher, nude eye shadow, white kohl, brow finisher, sultry feathery lashes and of course the ultimate tools for the infamous Marilyn red lip. The only thing I was worried about with this collection was the packaging. I was so worried it would be really tacky, and even know I’m not sure if I love it. I think the lipsticks are perfect, but I’m not sure about the nail polish. I don’t know, I suppose this is going to be love or hate but overall this is quite possibly my favourite MAC collection ever, and that says a lot for me! AND I haven’t even seen it in person yet!!

The collection launched online yesterday in the USA and will arrive at stores in America from October 4th. Internationally the collection will also launch in October but I’m not sure on the date yet, but I will be sure to post when I know.

To see all the products from the collection check out Temptalia and you can browse the collection on the US MAC website even though if you’re UK based you can’t purchase.

I cannot wait for this collection, and I would love to hear you comments too :).
