I am so excited about this iconic collection collaboration!  I can not wait to see the photos and swatches! I definately plan on getting the Beauty Powder, at least one blush, and Preferred Blonde eye shadow.  I will have to wait to see swatches to decide on the lipsticks or dazzleglasses.  

What do you have your eye on? Are you making your list or waiting to see swatches?

Thanks for reading!



  1. Are we 100% these will be the items? I just question due to the fact that Mac usually doesn't release information so early and this is going to be a major sale for them.

    1. To my knowledge, from what I have received this is the list. I know MAC could change anything since I posted this, but I have checked with other bloggers and they have the same items listed. If I hear different from MAC or the ESTEE LAUDER CO., I will be sure to post and update.

  2. I am SO excited for this! I've never purchased MAC cosmetics, but I'm a huge Marilyn fan, so once I heard about MAC releasing a Marilyn Monroe inspired collection I was intrigued and will definitely be checking out some swatches!

    1. Whitney, you won't be disappointed with MAC. MAC is my favorite cosmetic brand. I can not wait for this collection to be released!

  3. are the false eyelashes black or blonde?
