After collaborating with the likes of Daphne Guinness, Beth Ditto, Lady Gaga and even Miss Piggy, MAC makeup is going back to basics by turning to the original Hollywood sex siren for makeup inspiration… Marilyn Monroe. 

WWD reports that MAC – which, by the way, was responsible for a host of stunning catwalk looks throughout London Fashion Week – will be partnering with Authentic Brands Group LLC, the brand which acquired the intellectual property of Marilyn Monroe last year.

The collection will feature around 30 pieces including  nail polishes, eyeshadows, eyeliners and of course lipsticks, one of which will undoubtedly come in a bold, scarlet colour to help people achieve Marilyn’s perfect, seductive pout. Prices range from $15 and $27, and the collection is slated for launch in October this year!

We think this is a fabulous idea, but frankly don’t understand why it wasn’t done sooner. At least this collection promises longevity, as we don’t think the Marilyn Monroe obsession will pass any time soon. Will you be buying anything from the collection?
