MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection Beauty Powder in Forever Marilyn

25 Oct

For the last product I picked up from the Marilyn Monroe collection I thought I would would show you all the product I was least likely to buy, but have been enjoying the most. When I was perusing this collection, I never even looked twice at this beauty powder. I wasn’t really sure how I would use it and didn’t think it was anything all that special. That was until the makeup artist at the MAC counter tried it on me. Now I have to say that I am a bit obsessed with finding the perfect highlighter. I find many of them to be too sparkly or too sheeny, so when she showed this one to me I was floored. This powder isn’t sparkly at all and it’s just enough lighter than my skin tone to create a highlight without it looking obvious. It gives my skin a sort of soft glow that actually reminds me a lot of old Hollywood actresses like Marilyn Monroe. I think this powder works beautifully on fair skin tones like mine, but I also think it would work on darker tones as well. All in all I am totally in love with this product and I really think it is the stand out product in the line.

What is your favorite highlighter? Would you have picked this product up immediately or passed it by like I was going to?

    That sounds lovely, i find with MAC products, often the ones that don’t jump out at me end up being my favourites! Definitely the case for prep and prime pressed powder and strobe cream 🙂

      You know that’s true! I’m often more impressed by things I wasn’t seeking out there. 🙂
