MAC Marilyn Monroe collection launch party!
My friend Priscilla invited me to the MAC Cosmetics Marilyn Monroe launch party last Tuesday and I got so excited, I couldn’t resist the opportunity. So I put on a Marilyn Monroe inspired outfit and invited my friend Nubia to see what all the fuss and anticipation was about. It was a really cool event packed with glamazons who were checking off things they wanted from the collection but I have to be honest, my friends and I weren’t really impressed with the packaging. There are thousands of beautiful images of Marilyn Monroe and these were just…boring. The packaging just looked cheap, period. So I based my opinion on the colors and coveted 2 lipsticks and an eye shadow. Despite being under-stimulated by the packaging, I have to say…the Scarlet Ibis and Deeply Adorned lip colors are phenomenal. Deeply Adorned is a deep shade of red and Scarlet Ibis is a fun orange. I also love the Showgirl eye shadow, it is the perfect smokey eye gun metal color that really shines. I have already worn Deeply Adorned almost every day this week and wish I would have gotten another one. Priscilla coveted the entire collection so I am waiting to hear her reviews and Nubia loves her Deeply Adorned lipstick and I am sure it looks awesome with that infrared hair of hers. We had a great time and the staff at Mac were really sweet. After makeup shopping we all got hungry and enjoyed an awesome dinner at one of my favorite cuban spots, Coppelia.Here is what I wore to the Marilyn Monroe Mac party. Can you believe I am in flats?! I am wearing the Bettie Page Clothing “sea breeze” dress with my retro-a-go-go Chevrolet necklace and vintage accessories.My sweater has an oh-so-appropriate Marilyn Monroe design on the back created by Betsey Johnson of course. Diamonds are a girls best friend!
On to the event!
Bleh, these images are…bleh
MAC had a model look-alike of Marilyn which I thought was super cute.
See the packaging? looks like they just pasted stickers on empty cases Priscilla looked fierce in her Betsey Johnson Marilyn printed dress! Such a beauty!Nubia was fiery with that infrared hair and glittery oxfords! Love that her lips matched her shoes! So gorg!
