MAC partnered up with the RHPS Franchisee to launch the MAC Rocky Horror Picture Show Collection! The collection was such a hit that almost all the products sold out in a manner of hours. I managed to snag 2 lipsticks and the blush fro the collection all three of which i absolutely adore!

MAC Description:

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the cult classic musical tribute to horror and sci-fi movies, kicks off the celebration of its 40th anniversary with an untamed M∙A∙C collaboration, featuring an outrageous collection of hues and products specially designed to recreate the looks of your favourite characters from the 1975 film. Transform yourself into a sex-swapping mad scientist, heroic newlywed, alien from Transylvania or even hunky Rocky Horror himself, with an orgy of colour worthy of any midnight mayhem at Frankenstein Palace. Deep gothic reds and intense purples in Strange Journey, Oblivion, Sin and Frank-N-Furter gives lips a blood-stained hue, while the Riff-Raff Quad casts a wild glow over eyes with shades like Oh, Rocky!!! And Heavy, Black and Pendulous. Camp it up for the Science Fiction Double Feature with deep black shades of Greasepaint Stick, Superslick Liquid Eye Liner, Chromagraphic Pencil and Zoomfast Black Lash, and Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a it all up with gold, black and red Glitter and Pigments. Nail Lacquers with multi-changing pearls take you straight into the Time Warp. It’s a scream! So why don’t you stay for the night?
