MAC Cosmetics are paying tribute to Marilyn Monroe with a new make-up collection.

The look of the iconic beauty - who was recently portrayed by Michelle Williams in movie 'My Week with Marilyn' - will be represented by a limited edition range including 30 custom-designed items priced from $15 to $27.

Among the pieces will by various eye shadow shades, lipsticks, nail polishes and eyeliners, and the range will be launched across the world in October.

MAC is well known for their collaborative pieces, with Nicki Minaj, Ricky Martin and Lady GaGa all previously working with them.

'Super Bass' singer Nicki unveiled a MAC Viva Glam lipstick in support of AIDS prevention and awareness last week, and she admitted she was delighted to be able to work with the brand.

She said: ''When I was chosen by MAC Cosmetics to be the next Viva Glam spokesperson, I wanted to hug everyone at MAC for giving me this opportunity. I've always wanted to be a Viva Glam girl.

''What's important about Viva Glam to me is that every cent goes to the MAC Aids Fund. It's bringing awareness to my culture. That's why I'm really, really excited about this campaign.''
