When MAC Cosmetics in Cebu revealed their latest collection last year that featured the classic blond sex goddess Marilyn Monroe, makeup junkies like me just cannot resist visiting the launch. We just have to know how MAC’s Marilyn Monroe collection achieves Marilyn Monroe’s lush lips, half-lid eyes and come-hither look.

Lipsticks in rapturous reds, gleaming Dazzleglass, a dramatic 35 Lash, False Lashes Extreme Black and Eye Shadows in shimmering metallic and diamond tones provide silver-screen allure. The finishing touch: Nail Lacquers destined to be a girl’s best friend and Beauty Powder to evoke that flawless Forever Marilyn.” My favourite in that collection was the ever bestselling lipstick, Love Goddess and this sexy blush The Perfect Cheek.
MAC Marilyn’s The Perfect Cheek is so subtle and matte you wouldn’t notice it until you realize the slight shadow on your cheek that gives you a hint of color in it. Think of the blush as part of the nude family but so soft and natural-looking people will notice this amazing glow on you without thinking that cosmetics has something to do with it! The Perfect Cheek is aptly named! The warm pink tones is just right for NC30 shades or NW20 shades. I am an NC25 but warm pink tones just balances out my shade. MAC Marilyn’s the Perfect Cheek is ideally great for Asian skins.
How do you channel the legendary Monroe’s luster and sex appeal in this lovely color for your cheeks? Love that the specially designed packaging features imagery from the Black Sitting.
The Perfect Cheek can be paired off with deep berries or burgundy on the lips and warm tones on the eyes. I heard this was a repromote but I am glad MAC decided to make this again. Earlier I did a review on Clinique’s Blushing Blush but Clinique had shimmer on it that is perfect for nighttime unlike The Perfect Cheek that I can practically use daily!
