I can’t believe cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show will turn 40 in 2015 ! Back in the 80s, I spent many teenage Friday nights at the iconic Key Theatre in Washington DC for midnight showings of the film, doing the Time Warp, ad-libbing along to the outrageous lines and longing to have the courage to dress like squeaky-voiced groupie Columbia.
To celebrate, cosmetics firm MAC has launched a fantastic (and not for the faint-hearted) range which is hitting the UK just in time for Halloween (very appropriate). The range includes dark lipsticks, outrageous lashes, inky eye liners and gothic nail varnish with character-evoking names such as Riff Raff Quad, Strange Journey, Oblivion and of course Frank-n-Furter.
MAC invites us to ‘transform yourself into a sex-swapping mad scientist, heroic newlywed, alien from Translyvania or even hunky Rocky Horror himself, with an orgy of colour worthy of any midnight mayhem at Frankenstein Palace’.
