Tacky Marilyn

I love it when Mac do limited edition ranges.  The packaging is always fun and the colours are really cool, inspired by the person/thing which the range is about.  So as a massive Marilyn fan i was super excited when i heard the buzz on the web about the Marilyn range.   Despite the using photos from Milton Green, one of Marilyn's most loved photographers and close friend.  The packaging let this range down big time, it looked tacky.  Like those black and white tacky Marilyn gifts you find in pound shops.

Unfortunately this lovely piece of tat is no longer available, i simply found it via google by typing 'tacky Marilyn Monroe' funnily enough photos of Mac cosmetics also came up!

Don't get me wrong, i love a bit of tat.  I have a whole shrine (my house) dedicated to tacky, kitch items.  But i have an extreme grudge against tacky Marilyn Monroe merchandise.   If unlike me you are partial to a bit of tat, here a are a few pieces i found online;

clock, sold here

Forget Mac check this bad boy out, in fact the packaging is extremely similar!

MM cosmetics
i quite like this actually
This post is entirely my own opinion, it is no way a dig at anyone who owns any of these items.  Please read this post as a bit of light hearted humour.  I am sorry if this offends anyone.

PS this is NOT my Christmas list!!!
