Today I am writing a review for the lovely Sarah, here at 'Writing & Rambling'! I am reviewing MAC Marilyn Monroe lipstick from the limited edition range. This lipstick is in the shade 'Charmed 'Im Sure.'
Packaging I have always been a massive fan of MAC packaging as it is simple yet stylish. Limited edition packaging is always a favourite of mine, unique and fun with a stylish twist always gets the thumbs up from me! This collection certainly wowed me! The packaging has a glossy black finish rather then the usual matte finish. On the front is stunning picture of Marilyn Monroe in black and white with her signature above in red. The packaging reflects Marilyn Monroe perfectly, stunning, glamourous and iconic.
How it feels/looks The lipstick is in shade 'Charmed I'm Sure', a bold deep red that looks like the classic shade Marilyn herself used to wear. The lipstick is in a matte finish, it doesnt apply as easy as others where I did need to apply a couple of coats to ensure my lips were covered in this gorgeous shade. The lipstick definately lasts! It still remained at the end of the day, pretty impressive if you ask me! The shade is a sumptious red that would suit many different skin tones. The lipstick is slightly drying, another down side is that bits of the lipstick do tend to come off onto the lips which I have never experienced with other MAC lipsticks, it was odd and not sure why! It just seemed to come off when applying in little pieces. Overall I love the shade, but not one of my favourite MAC lipsticks.
Conclusion I love the packaging and shade of this lipstick, it would suit many different skin tones and lasts a long time. The downside is the application and the little clumps that seem to come off onto the lips, it isnt a favourite lipstick from MAC and it did slightly dry out my lips. I would continue to wear this as I am love with this shade! MAC lipsticks will continue to be my favourite brand of lipsticks available, lets see what 2013 holds with new collections due out soon!
Hope you found this review useful!
