I know everyone and their mama has posted items from the MAC Marilyn Monroe collection but I thought I would share my purchases. I was only able to get my hands on two things: an eyeshadow and lipstick. By the time I got to the website pretty much everything was sold out. So I jumped on whatever I could get. :)
I was able to get one of the eye shadows in Preferred Blonde. I was so anxious to get something from the collection that I didn't notice it was a Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow. I am not a huge fan of these eye shadows just because of the fall out that you get from them. However, when used wet they look gorgeous so I can't complain.
The color is a pale champagne beige. It actually looks like a diamond beige whitish color. It is really pretty and very pigmented. It is a bit too much to where by itself. So I applied it in the inner corner of my lid and it looked gorgeous.
You can see it is very pigmented and pretty! A bit too much to wear all over the lid though for me. Be careful when applying the Veluxe Pearl eye shadows. I find it better to apply them with a wet brush.
I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe so I was anxious and excited to get my hands on anything from the collection. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get any of the limited edition colors which I was highly disappointed. I could only get my hands on Pure Zen which isn't a limited edition color. However, I was just happy to get it in the Marilyn packaging.
This color is gorgeous anyways and I didn't own it so I wasn't that disappointed. It is a beautiful pinkish nude color which I've used a lot since I got it :)
Were you able to get your hands on anything from the Marilyn Monroe collection? What did you think of her collection?
