MAC x Marilyn Monroe Collection Available Online!


MAC x Marilyn Monroe Collection Available Online!

The official in-store launch date is still October 4th according to MAC HQ, but if you’re worried, try calling your local MAC store or counter and verifying with them regarding their launch date. You may be able to hold or do a pre-order, but the policy on both seems to vary a lot from location to location.

Keep in mind, online retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, Dillard’s, and Bloomingdale’s will also launch the collection online. All retailers appear to have launched the collection at this time, except Dillard’s.

Now available at Nordstrom!

Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait

Guerlain Orgueil Rouge G L’Extrait ($48.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “plum.” What a pedestrian description! This shade is so much more complex. It’s a rich, deepened scarlet red with ruby red micro-shimmer. There’s just a hint of berry in the overall color, especially from afar. While it is not a dupe, it’s a cooler-toned, more berry-hued version of Chanel Dragon. MAC Good to Be Bad is browner and has no shimmer. MAC What a Joy! is more berry-hued. Guerlain Gigolo is deeper, darker, but it is rather close.
