It's about time — almost 40 years after The Rocky Horror Picture Show hit theaters, MAC Cosmetics has come out with a line of makeup dedicated to this cult favorite.

According to Refinery 29 Frank-N-Furter even gets his own lipstick color, along with other hues of reds with names like Sin, Oblivion, and Strange Journey. Of course the 21-piece line also includes eyeliners, dark eye shadows, blush, contouring colors, mascara and fake lashes; and it hits shelves October 2 (a few days after the movie's 40th anniversary and just in time for Halloween!). 

So maybe grab a stick of the Frank-N-Furter and then head to the monthly showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Clay Theatre (2261 Fillmore)  — the last Saturday of every month — and get ready to do the Time Warp again.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
