Mac Limited Edition Marilyn Monroe Lipstick in Pure Zen

 





Welcome to the first of my three reviews about the Marilyn Monroe collection by Mac. To start us off I thought I would write about this lipstick as I simply can't get enough of it and I've only had it for a week!

My boyfriend bought this for me when he realised how besotted I was with the whole collection. I hadn't actually seen any of the items in person but i'd drooled over the online images. Therefore I actually can't thank my boyfriend enough for picking this lipstick to purchase as it's absolutely stunning and I seem to be wearing it every day. It's a really perfect nude colour - one that doesn't make me look dead and washed out. It's described as a frosted warm nude on the website but I would describe it as more of a creamy soft pink. Extremely flattering.

I know that since we are going into A/W, lip colours are going berry and we're meant to be making more of a statement. However I tried that recently with a Revlon lipstick and it really didn't suit me, so I'm fine with rocking the nude a little longer. At least until Christmas is here and I can whack out the Kate Moss red on a casual basis :)

If you have been able to get your mitts on one of these wonderful lipsticks, let me know in the comments below. From what I understand, many are now sold out and I'm frankly shocked that I, or should I say my boyfriend, got there in time to get anything at all!
