MAC Marilyn Monroe Beauty Powder: Forever Marilyn Review & Swatch

10 Oct 2012





So I wasn't going to succumb to anything from the Marilyn Monroe MAC collection but after seeing TiffanyD on YouTube saying she really liked it I HAD to have it! So glad I forked out as it's just beautiful! I actually wanted the Scarlet Ibis lipstick but it was compared to Sail Le Vie which I already have so I thought I'd bypass.

I know the packaging is a bit of hit and miss with people but I actually quite like it. I like the pictures they used and find it sleek and sassy. I love the red lipstick mark on the inside of the box. I am a a huge box hoarder so at least this one is worth taking up room! 

Forever Marilyn is a pale pink powder with a ever so subtle shimmer which does not transfer to the skin. The powder is beautifully soft, smooth and quite pigmented - a dream to apply. I used it on the cheekbones, under eye, center of the nose, touch on the cupids bow and chin and a dusting on the forehead - in other words pretty much everywhere haha! I don't actually own any kind of matte highlighters, well a slight lie as I have Laura Mercier's Secret Brightening Powder but I only use it under the eye as I'm not sure how much is actually highlights the cheekbones so this fit's in well to my makeup collection.  I definitely will be using this a lot! 

Looks like it's still available on the MAC website


Did you get anything from the collection?

  4. I've been trying to stay away from this collection because MAC practically takes all of my money, but highlighters are my favourite and this seems completely different to the ones I already have. So pretty :)
