Swatch: Mac Marilyn Monroe Preferred Blonde Eyeshadow

marilyn 1

Mac Preferred Blonde Large Eyeshadow ($.21.00) is a sheer white-champagne with a frosted finish. It reminds me of Crystal Avalanche on the skin, on the pan it looks a lot more champagne. I find it perfect for under the eyebrow as a highlighter and for the inner corner of the eye to make eyes appear awake. The texture is velvety but nothing special, this collection didn't wowed me slightly, I feel like Marilyn Monroe deserved unique colours and something extra special but that's just me. Three of four eyeshadows look very similar (How to Marry, Preferred Blonde and Silver Screen) and colour payoff could have been better.

Have you tried this eyeshadow or anything else from the collection?


  1. I haven't tried this nor any of the MM collection but I think this would look nice as highlighter ^_~

    1. Yes, I agree but I haven't tried it as a highlighter yet. xx

  2. I love how this could be a highlighter/eyeshadow in one! :)
