midnight madness

On the cusp of the film’s 40th anniversary — and timed perfectly for Halloween — comes the Rocky Horror Picture Show collection from MAC cosmetics. The 22-piece line salutes the play-turned-movie bomb-turned-cult film-turned-pop culture juggernaut through a series of eye shadows, pencils, and lip colors inspired by the characters of the theatrical camp fest. There’s a range of rich red lipsticks worthy of Frank-N-Furter, Magenta and Columbia and a grey-toned eye makeup set that will speak to your inner Riff Raff. And of course, there is the sparkle (this IS 1975, after all), found in loose glitter pots, powder pigment, Greasepaint Stick (a smudgy navy blue eyeliner) and two vampy, iridescent nail polishes. The palette represents the film pretty accurately and the packaging is so on-point. Unfortunately, it seems we’re a little late to this science fiction double feature, because many of the products are sold-out online. So hit up your local MAC store instead.
