there we have it the Marilyn Collection for MAC.

I'm not really sure on the packaging to be honest, I'm not sure but when I first saw the first image - I thought it was photoshopped in honesty. I doubt white would've make it look any better but I guess it's quite difficult to do a collection where you do want the images on the items without making it look 'cheap'. Then again isn't it more about the product at the end of the day ? (though the packaging does turn you onto it too) Maybe I was looking for them to throw it back, give it a retro feel.

Also don't understand why aren't there any matte eyeshadows ?! I had dreams of swooping up the entire collection for psycho reasons but I think this has now helped dwindle down my list.

Are you looking forward to this collection? What on your list?
