I think when people see this collection, they need to take it for what it is. A collection based totally on Marilyn Monroe. Does it have crazy, out-there colors? No. Is it red-lipstick-heavy? Yes. More neutral eye shadows? Yep. But what I love is that it has just the right amount of sparkle. Dazzleglasses, frosted formulas, red lips, and pale cheeks. It's totally Marilyn.
I actually really like the classic packaging with photos of Marilyn Monroe that aren't typical. I think it's fun and classic.
Sure as far as the products go, there are some hits and misses, as with all collections. I talk about that more in my video about this collection at the bottom of the post. Don't miss it!
Oh, and MAC Nail Lacquer, we can be friends again. ;)
