Olivia Reidy gives a review on Mac’s launch of their Marilyn Monroe collection of lipsticks.
“If you’re gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.” ― Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe is arguably one of the world’s most famous beauty icons. Mac has taken inspiration from the 1950’s beauty bringing you a brand new, exclusive collection. So, along with other avid Mac fans I went to the Debenhams preview evening to get first dibs on one of the most covetable make-up collections this A/W. One of the chief Mac make-up artists fresh from London Fashion Week, provided an expert master class to demonstrate the detail involved in achieving Marilyn Monroe’s effortless (yeah, right) sex appeal and Hollywood glamour.
From classic red lipsticks to highlighters and shimmering eye shadows, each product in the range portrays Marilyn’s iconic beauty and features sleek black and white packaging bearing an image of the star. Must- have product? Lipstick in Charmed I’m Sure, £15.50 for the infamous Marilyn pout.
