Mac Marilyn Monroe Lipstick in Scarlet Ibis

I got to admit I wasn't overly impressed when I first saw this collection - I really wanted to like it because the packaging is beautiful and wanted to pick up few items.
I mean nice colours both for eyeshadows and blushes but nothing out of the ordinary that I need in my collection so I only ended up getting 1 lipstick.
They put a lot of thoughts in the other packaging too - love the wee kiss inside the lid :)
The actual lipstick is a shiny black bullet with a Marilyn photo and red writing - I think it's spot on and in keeping with the 'theme'.
The shade I chose - Scarlet Ibis - is a re-promote from the Iris Apfel collection which I decide to buy since I regretted not getting it last time.
The colour is an orange red - pulling quite on the orange side on me - with a matte finish.
It's pretty comfortable on the lips and not drying; I already got few compliments wearing it so I'm really glad I bought it now! :)
Interested in this collection? What did you buy?

  8. I wasn't so impressed by this collection either. It has a lot of re promotes and don't find the shades unique. Pure Zen isn't new either. But the packaging is quite cute :) xx

  9. I was disappointed by the collection, the colours were fine but I didn't like the packaging, I felt they could have done a lot better especially considering it's an ode to such a legend! Scarlet Ibis is lovely though, I'm a sucker for an orange red xx
