When you hear the world “glamour,” there’s a fairly good chance what pops into mind immediately are images of old Hollywood starlets, and the most prominent one is probably Marilyn Monroe. An icon in every sense of the word, Marilyn embodies the high gloss femininity that so defines that golden age of Hollywood, and that so many of us modern ladies, while we might not want to go all out pinup glam, definitely want a little hint of in our day to day lives. That, friends, is where MAC comes in. We heard that MAC was going to be releasing a Marilyn Monroe line all the way back in February–early intel suggested it wouldn’t be out until October, but lo and behold, it’s going to be ready for purchase online on September 27th, mere weeks away! It still won’t be in stores until October 4th, though, so if you want to give the shades an in-store test run you’ll have to wait a little. The 30 piece collection includes lipstick, nail polish, and everything in between, all in classic shades that will have your skirt blowing up over a subway grate in no time (ok, maybe not). Check out the full collection after the jump.

This is far from the first time MAC has teamed with an icon on a line–from Archie Comics to Iris Apfel, the makeup maker has the best sources of inspiration of any brand we can think of. Not to mention celeb collabs with the likes of Azealia Banks, Nicki Minaj and…need we really go on? Beyond killer.
