My Thoughts on the Morgan Taylor Forever Marilyn Collection

Hello Lovelies! Today I have for you what I think is my last fall collection of 2019, the Morgan Taylor Forever Marilyn Collection!

This was my first full Morgan Taylor collection, and it was gifted to me by the brand. A huge thank you to them!

The Forever Marilyn Collection includes six elegant and long-lasting shades inspired by Marilyn Monroe. I loved the formula on the cream polishes in this collection, and only one (the jelly) gave me a little trouble.

Morgan Taylor polishes are 5-free and are $9.50/bottle.

Now on to the swatches!


Swatches of the Morgan Taylor Forever Marilyn Collection


SOME GIRLS PREFER PEARLS | Some Girls Prefer Pearls is an absolutely gorgeous white pearl, and it's hands down my favorite polish in this collection! It looks like actual pearls were crushed up and pipped into this bottle. I am not usually a white pearl fan, but man, is this polish gorgeous or what?! You can get this one fully opaque in 2-3 coats depending on your application.



ALL AMERICAN BEAUTY | All American Beauty is a super light pink blush jelly polish, and this one was not my favorite. On my, it pooled towards the sides of my nails on the first coat (because I went in too heavy with the polish) but it ultimately leveled out. I really don't like to see my nail line personally so, I built this polish up in 3 coats for almost full opacity.



A GIRL AND HER CURLS | A Girl and Her Curls was a dark horse in this collection for me. This is a royal purple with little silver glitters. It's not a "glitter" polish so it doesn't dry textured at all, but it was a little tough to get the little flecks of glitter off my skin! I think this is so pretty, and I got it fully opaque in 1-2 coats.



THAT'S SO MONROE | That's So Monroe reminds me of a Coke! I love this warm brown that has a flash of gold shimmer and filled with silver glitters. Again, this is not a full on "glitter" polish so it does not dry with any texture. I was able to build this up super easily in 2 coats.



FLIRTY & FABULOUS | Flirty & Fabulous is a really pretty deep teal, and a color I have been sooo drawn to for fall! Wearer beware, this polish does stain a bit, so a thick base coat is highly recommended! I love the cream formula from Morgan Taylor, it's super smooth and self levels beautifully! You can get this opaque in 2 coats.



CLASSIC RED LIPS | Classic Red Lips is...well a classic red!! This cream is so buttery and beautiful, and perfectly embodies Marilyn! This one was super close to being a 1 coat polish, but a few nails needed 2 coats.



Final Thoughts on the Morgan Taylor Forever Marilyn Collection

WOW, well for my first ever Morgan Taylor collection, I was so pleasantly surprised! I only had a little issue with All American Beauty, but that's probably because I have no experience working with Morgan Taylor jellies (and I don't even like jellies on me). 

My favorites have to be Some Girls Prefer Pearls, A Girl and Her Curls, and That's So Monroe.

Overall, I think these polishes have amazing formula, and they are mostly 1-2 coat polishes for the average user -- and to top that the cream polishes truly have a wonderful formula! I can't wait to share more of their polishes with you guys! 

Again, Morgan Taylor polishes are 5-free, and $9.50/bottle on Ulta.com, Sallybeauty.com, or wherever Morgan Taylor is sold.
