Announced on the official Rocky Horror Fan Club page, the 21-piece collection gives righteous homage to Richard O'Brien's 1975 cult classic, and of course wouldn't be complete without the red lipstick. The line includes a 6-pan shadow palette, liquid eye liners, blush and bronzer, nail lacquers, gold and multicolored glitter, and faux eyelashes to achieve the iconic looks of Frank-n-Furter, Riff-Raff, and Magenta.
Every item in the collection dons the signature bitten red lips, and prices range from $17.50 for lipsticks up to $44.00 for the Riff-Raff eyeshadow palette.
Rocky Horror's bold and avant-garde style is perfect for Halloween—and this set is released just in time—but for true Rocky Horror fans, the collection is perfect for midnight shadow cast showings. If you're any good at makeup, you might be able to hide your Rocky Horror virgin status…but what fun would that be, to opt out of one of the most fun initiation experiences into the RHPS community? (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I suggest you find the closest shadow cast and give yourself over to absolute pleasure!)
In the nearly 40 years since the release of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the film has been regularly screened at midnight showings around the country and has inspired hundreds of shadow casts to act out the entire film clad in full costume before the screen. Starting as a theatrical production, The Rocky Horror Show gave a humorous and cheeky tribute to science fiction and B-horror movies and quickly developed a cult following, making the film adaptation the longest-running release in film history.
Lou Adler, executive producer of the film, said, "It is hard to believe it has been almost 40 years since we released The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but as we approach this milestone anniversary, the film is as outrageously entertaining and relevant as it ever was. It has certainly taken on a life of its own, and continues to transcend generations and hold a solid spot in pop culture year after year."
MAC Cosmetics has previously released fandom-inspired lines, more recently The Simpsons collection to mark the cartoon's 25th anniversary.
So, come up to the lab and see what's on the slab…the Rocky Horror MAC collection will be available online September 29 and in store at MAC locations October 2.
