There are some celebrities who will be beauty icons for all of eternity, even when they’re no longer with us. Marilyn Monroe is undeniably one of them. Although we lost her nearly 60 years ago, her image is still seen splashed across T-shirts, decor, advertisements, and more, because she’s continually upheld and celebrated as one of the most beautiful women in history. So it’s no surprise that a beauty brand would launch a makeup and skin-care collection inspired by the legendary entertainer.
Hard Candy has just launched the Hard Candy x Marilyn Monroe collection at Walmart, and it will delight not only fans of Monroe but anyone who loves roses and strawberries, the scents and colors of which are found throughout the products. “In a time when wearing flashy makeup was not considered acceptable unless it was in front of a camera or on stage, Marilyn dared to be glamorous wherever and whenever,” the brand says of the collection. “A trailblazer in women’s beauty, she set the stage for modern icons and influencers. The Hard Candy X Marilyn Monroe collaboration highlights the idea that pushing boundaries can change the world.”
On the makeup side of the collection, there’s a tinted lip balm in Strawberry and Coconut Rose, a liquid eyeliner in three shades (black, blue, and rose gold), a liquid lip tint in red and pink, a brow pencil, a “sparkling strawberry” loose powder, and a golden body powder.
What makes this collection even better? Every single item is $7 or less. So you get the glamour so closely associated with Marilyn Monroe without an excessively glamorous price.
You can find the Hard Candy x Marilyn Monroe collection now at walmart.com.
