In celebration of the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s 40th anniversary, M.A.C Cosmetics has released a makeup collection in honour of the iconic movie. A Halloween favourite, the naughty film has inspired costumes and sing-alongs for decades. And while the music and fashion are memorable, let’s be honest, it’s the deep red lips and up-to-the-brow-bone eyeshadow worn by Tim Curry’s character Dr. Frank-n-Furter that really make the film.
Why we love it
The limited edition makeup collection provides all Rocky Horror Picture Show fans with the tools to recreate their favourite beauty looks from the movie, and it also has all beauty bases covered with products ranging from eyeshadow and lipstick to body glitter and nail polish. Plus, the packaging is fun and the line is an absolute must-have for any Rocky Horror Picture Show collector.
However, even if you haven’t seen the movie, there’s still something for everyone in this collection. So invest in a little jar of Rocky Horror glitter — perfect for any kinky occasion — in either gold or 3D black, or grab a bottle of nail lacquer in Bad Fairy (a deep red) or Formidable (a dark teal). Whether for Halloween or any event when your eyes need more definition, pick up the Rocky Horror logo-emblazoned Riff Raff eyeshadow palette or the Rocky Horror false lashes. And the Rocky Horror Powder Blush in Crazed Imagination is the perfect finish to any party look.
So act fast — your Halloween costume may depend on it! These special M.A.C makeup collections always sell out quickly and there aren’t too many beauty buffs who can’t relate, at least a little bit, to the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
