Well finally, after a zillion phone calls to all MAC stores across Delhi/NCR and then waiting for a month or so, I did finally get hold of the Limited Edition lipstick called Deeply Adored from M.A.C.'s Marilyn Monroe Collection (INR 1050 for 3 g ) and here's my review for the same.
M.A.C.'s Marilyn Monroe Collection was released a while back and it originally had five shades (Deeply Adored, Charmed I'm Sure, Love Goddess, Scarlet Ibis and Pure Zen ).
Deeply Adored is a brown toned red which is completely opaque in a single coat and has a matte finish. It looks darker in tube but comes out as a really pretty red that I would want to wear with my traditional outfits.The lipstick looks creamy when freshly applied but after a while it sets down to a beautiful true matte finish.Well, the mattes are, always, ,my preferred finish when I buy a MAC because they are creamy , luxurious, glide easily on lips without tugging or pulling and are comfortable to wear as compared to mattes by a lot of other brands.
The packaging of the lipsticks from the Marilyn Monroe Collection have an outer cover with a picture of Marilyn Monroe inside which is the regular MAC carton ( a little different because these are shiny as compared to regular MACs which are matte )and then inside that is the Lipstick. The lipstick bullet again has a picture a of Marilyn and is shiny (and I don't like that much because its gets fingerprints all over!!!)
The lipstick wore on me for a good 5 hours (with light snack and sips of water)and fades evenly without any patchiness. It is lightly staining which is a little disappointing since I would have preferred it to be a bit more staining. One definitely needs to touch up in between.
Overall , a great shade for Indian Skin, and a lot of others , and I do see myself wearing it a lot. If you like it, Go grab it asap because it was going OOS at a speed faster than the speed of light!!!!!!!!
Have a good day everyone!!!
