M·A·C Me Over! Collection

It's been a while since a M·A·C collection really caught my eye but this particular collection has rather surprised me. The faces of this Autumn collection are six unknowns picked from thousands of M·A·C Me Over! entries to find new faces and personalities that would personify the M·A·C All Races, All Ages, All Sexes credo. From this concept I had really expected this to be a bold and dramatic collection, so I was surprised to discover so many beautiful neutrals and wearable colours.

It is a collection in three parts; Basics, Black Trend and Icelandic Cool. There's a real mix of limited edition and permanent shades in the line-up. It also includes a few sought after items from past releases. The 226 crease brush has been a big seller before (it's a great brush but personally I find the hairs a little scratchy) and Peachstock lipstick and the Shadesticks in Butternutty and Cakeshop have been popular limited edition items in the past.

Basics Eyeshadows L-R: Creamy Bisque, Moleskin and Outré

Basics Eyeshadows L-R: Carbonized, Mythical and Satin Taupe

Black Trend Fluidlines L-R: Avenue, Dark Diversion and Midnight Blues

There are a quite a few items that are calling my name. The eyeshadows in Creamy Bisque (dirty ivory), Moleskin (nude brown) and Outré (dirty mustard) and the Cremesheen lipstick in Offshoot (mid-tone neutral pink) all sound very 'me'. I'd also recommend Teddy Eye Kohl and Satin Taupe eyeshadow if you don't already have these. Seaside Cream Colour Base (soft peach rose), the Shadestick in Street Cool (Mid-tone grey violet taupe) and all of the fluidlines appeal to me too.

This definitely feels like a more accessible collection from M·A·C. I think these are colours that would certainly suit all ages and I don't mind confessing some relief at a lack of pale lilac lipsticks. You can find swatches of collection on Karlasugar.net (Basics, Black Trend and Icelandic Cool). I assume the collection will be released on 1st September as the collections are usually released on the first Thursday of the month. What do you think to this collection? Do you have your eye on anything?

  1. I Love the look of the fluidlines, I currently own just the standard Black one but these colours would look a bit more interesting!
