MAC : Marilyn Monroe

 If you follow my blog often you will realise alot of my beauty posts feature or are reviewing MAC products. With a family member working for the company and a constant need to know whats next I'm usually fairly up to date with new ranges/collections up and coming from MAC after pestering my source and the internet!. So it excites me to find information relating a new collection ...

YES A new collection based around Marilyn Monroe!

This particular collection excites me not so much because of Marilyn, I personally don't idolise her atall, Of course every woman admires her curves and confidence but for me, Its more about this collection being one that I think will be more wearable for many more people and will hopefully be less daunting for people who have been so far afraid to splurge a bit of money on MAC cosmetics. 
As usual MAC has came up with some beautifully creative names, leaving each one of the 30 limited edition pieces with its own fitting name. I'm not particularly fond of the use of image on the packaging but I understand the reasoning.I'm particularly interested in the lipsticks (aren't I always?!) and the eyeshadows. Finally we may all be able to capture a bit of that signature 50s-60s look! Bring on the scheduled October release date!
