MAC announces Marilyn Monroe Collection

Thursday, February 23, 2012

When you think of classic beauty what & who springs to mind ?

For me I automatically think the winged eyeliner, defined brows, beauty mark and perfect red lips and the epitome of that in my eyes - Marilyn Monroe.

Yesterday I was looking for the Barbie collector dolls inspired by Marilyn that I was looking to purchase when along came the news that MAC Cosmetics are set to launch a collection inspired by Marilyn Monroe later on this year.

MAC (alongside Authentic Brands Group LLC) will release a collection of around 30 pieces that will be showcase in custom designed displays.

“Marilyn’s an icon, plain and simple. Her look not only defined a generation but also is relevant today,” MAC senior vp James Gager

The collection is in it's early days of course but I'm sure we could expect this collection to represent Marilyn's iconic image.

I for one will be looking forward to this collection of course, are you?
