The MAC Cosmetics store in Moa launched the limited edition Marilyn Monroe Collection collection yesterday and I only found out about the launch when I chanced upon the Marilyn Monroe Collection in Rockwell the other day.The MAC cosmetics store in SM Mall of Asia was the last MAC store in the Philippines to launch the Marilyn Monroe Collection. I was able to read about the launch online but I didn’t know when the Philippine launch was. :)
I decided to purchase an item which is a MAC limited edition blush called legendary in the MAC Rockwell branch just in case I wasn’t going to make it to the SM Moa launch just because I really wanted to get something form the collection! I was told that I should be at the MOA branch at 11am because people really line up for launches of new collections! I arrived around 12 and was secretly happy because there was no line in sight! Apparently, people went earlier and some products got sold out as early as 11-ish yesterday! I really wanted the limited editon lipstick in Deeply Adored but it was already out of stock when I reached the MAC counter so I reached for the next best shade in my opinion which is called Charmed I’m sure.
We weren’t allowed to purchase the items yet and I was told that the actual selling period begins at 2pm, after the mini makeup demo. I was with my brother and dad whom I dragged along to pay for my purchases so they both got annoyed at me because they had til around 3:30 until I actually got to pay! ha ha! The whole process was very organized; we were each given a number and we had to pay according to our number!
my brother says she looks like Taylor Swift! haha cutie.
The whole collection is just lovely!!!! The fact that theme of the whole collection is all about one of the most iconic people in history combined with all the items being limited edition pushed me to make an effort to go all the way to SM Moa just to be able to snag some items from the collection. I absolutely love the packaging of the collection! The packaging of the products is shiny and different from the packaging of regular items. :)
I wish I could buy everything!!!!
What made me buy the products was really the packaging! The packaging was so unique and pretty!!! AAAAH <333
The hardship I went through just to be able to purchase my items make me value my limited edition pieces so much more!! :) If you haven’t checked the collection out, you must! If you wanna purchase items, your best bet would be in SM Moa since they’re the last and latest branch that launched the collection. :)
i LOOOOVE the red kiss marks!! They make me wanna keep the boxes! haha
That’s all for now! Reviews to follow. ;)
