MAC x Marilyn Monroe Collection Swatches

"Imperfection is Beauty..." - Marilyn Monroe

Lipsticks ($16.50 for .10 oz)
  • Charmed I'm Sure | Matte | Dark True Red
  • Deeply Adored | Matte | Deep Scarlet
  • Love Goddess | Satin | Mid-Tone Pink Red
Beauty Powder ($28 for .35 oz)
  • Forever Marilyn | Sheer Pale Peach Highlighter
Charmed I'm Sure is a red that is neutral but to me it looks like it has a hint of a berry color compared to my other red lipsticks. Although it is a matte finish, it is very easy to work with.
Deeply Adored is the darkest lipstick in the collection and my favorite. Just like Charmed I'm sure, it is a matte that is easy to work with.
Love Goddess is a pretty color, but I don't like it on myself. This lipstick was the most popular one in the collection, but I'm honestly not too crazy about it.

Beauty Powder
Forever Marilyn powder seems way to light for me, but as a highlight I adore it. I'm glad I bought it despite it being catered towards lighter skin tones.  When I applied it to half of my face, it looked more alive than the side with no powder.  I say check it out even if you do not think it will work for you.
