M.A.C Marilyn Monroe Collection

Hello again everyone. Last week I blogged about the M.A.C launch in Jamaica. I received two samples of M.A.C's newest collection dedicated to the iconic Marilyn Monroe. My samples are: Marilyn Monroe Lipstick in Scarlet Ibis (retail price: $16.50 US) and Marilyn Monroe large eyeshadow in How to Marry (retail price: $21 US). Below are images showing the product packaging and also swatches. 

I don't think the Scarlet Ibis lipstick fits me at all but I really do like every other shade available in the collection and will make a purchase at some point. The eyeshadow is a lovely colour and will work well to highlight certain parts of the eye. These are my first M.A.C products, seeing as most of my products are from brands that cater mainly for darker skin tones.  I am quite impressed with the quality of these samples. The products are highly pigmented. And, even though the lipstick doesn't fit me well I am definitely looking forward to trying more M.A.C products.

 As you can see, this lipstick is a very orange toned red.
