Preview: MAC – MAC Me Over collection



Ok, I’ll admit, I’m a MAC addict! Everytime information about a new MAC collection pops up somewhere on the internet, I’m all over it to make up my wish list. I’m a loyal follower of Temptalia, who always posts great information, reviews, pictures and  swatches of pretty much everything is every single MAC collection. I’m sure you all know her :). Based on what she posts, I decide what I think is worth checking out in person when the collection releases in stores. I often don’t even look at the other stuff because I just end up getting even more stuff if I don’t eliminate certain items in advance. She always puts up the US and Canada launch date, and when it’s launched internationally. For the exact launch date for Belgium and The Netherlands I always check or call my local MAC store (usually the first saturday of the month for big collections).

The MAC collection thats coming out next is “MAC Me Over”. For this collection, they had a contest last year of which they picked 6 winners who got a MAC makeover. This huge collection is devided into 3 parts: Basics, New Black and Icelandic Cool.


Things I want to check out:
- Moleskin eyeshadow: looks like a nice matte neutral brown, want to see how similar it is to Wedge.
- Mythical eyeshadow: looks really pretty but might be similar to other eyeshadows I have (Sexpectations maybe?), I love veluxe pearl eyeshadows.
- Carbonized eyeshadow: another veluxe pearl, supposed to be very similar to Center Stage (which I have) so probably gonna skip this.
- Equilibrium blush: neutral light brown-bronze.£
- Stunner blush: coral-pink, don’t have that many blushes from MAC and they both look really pretty and wearable.

New Black:

Things I want to check out:
- Dark Diversion: dark plum, nice colour for green eyes.
- Dark Envy: dark green, I really like fluidlines!
- 211 brush: fine tapered liner brush, looks interesting.

Icelandic Cool:


Things I want to check out:
- Lady Grey  eyeshadow quad: these look like very soft colours that would be great for a daytime look that’s just a little different from the usual neutral colours.
- 226 brush: I have the Sigma dupe of this brush but it’s not as tapered as I’d like, if the MAC one isn’t as tapered as I want, I’ll probably get the Louise Young 38A tapered brush.

If you wonder why I haven’t put any of the lip products on my wish list, that’s just because I personally rarely wear anything on my lips, so I’m not going to spend a lot of money on lip products.
