Earlier this year, Michelle Williams gave an amazing performance allowing us to spend a Week With Marilyn, and following suit to pay homage to the late sex symbol and Hollywood goddess are beauty giants MAC Cosmetics to create an exclusive Marilyn Monroe X Mac Collection. The limited edition collection is due to hit stores this fall, specifically late October, and will include around 30 various products such as eye shadows, lipsticks, eyeliners, and nail lacquers. Expected colors can be her iconic pink and ruby red lip, with perhaps a playful name to go along with it like Gentleman Prefer Pink. Just throwing it out there in case any MAC execs take a peep at HauteTalk!
With the popularity of My Week With Marilyn and new prime time series Smash, it seems as if Marilyn has been popping up all over the place lately. As if she ever even went out of style, the blonde bombshell is still being celebrated even 50 years post her untimely death and MAC Senior VP can agree. “Marilyn’s an icon, plain and simple. Her look not only defined a generation but also is relevant today,” MAC Senior VP James Gager told The Hollywood Reporter.
The collection which is anticipated to range in price from $15-$27, will have Marilyn following in the footsteps of previous MAC collaborations as Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, and Betty Ditto. Did you ever think you would hear such a statement? Only in the MAC Cosmetics world!
