MAC is celebrating the life of an icon, one of my favourite icons: Marilyn Monroe. Be still my beating heart. As a student I didn't think I would be able to justify buying anything, and at any rate it sold out like CRAZY on the MAC website. However a visit to a MAC counter, and very generous lady named 'Mum,' I'm now the owner of a Marilyn Monroe MAC Lipstick in 'Charmed I'm Sure.'
It such a gorgeous red shade, so iconic of Marilyn, that I feel I should wear it like she did- with pride and every where! Another great thing about it is the pigmentation- its such a deep pigmented red and the slight blue undertones help to make teeth look whiter. Perhaps not Marilyn white.... but a girl can dream!
As a matte shade I was also impressed with the moisturising levels. Normally matte lipsticks dry my lips out, but a bit of balm underneath this kept the shade nice and non-drying all day, and I mean all day! The lasting power is great (as you'd expect of a matter shade, but this really blew my socks off!)
Now if MAC could just release a Audrey Hepburn collection that would be my two icons covered! Please and thank you.
