Just when you think MAC has done it all they switch things up a little bit and create another new, interesting, and unique collection that will appeal to the n00bs and fan girls alike.
Although MAC has done and re-done pigments until we are all blue in the face I think it’s safe to say that they never get old and we never get tired of ‘em, at least I don’t!
Last year MAC Rush Metal made me a happy girl but this year…this year MAC Overrich really made me estactic. Although Rush Metal is by far one of my favorite pigment collections I must admit that I was thrilled with MAC Overrich.
The pigments in Overrich are good deal different from most previous pigment releases. The formula is a finer grain of product that pigments are most definately not known for and the colors are richer and deeper than any previous release I’ve collected thus far.
Now the formula as I mentioned is slightly different on a few colors. I noticed the formula varied in format in several of the pigments however pretty much very single shade had a very finely milled texture. Most pigments I own do not have this texture, most are very grainy and chunky where as most all of the Overrich pigments were finely milled powder. I also noticed that the colors blended easier and fall out wasn’t as bad as it normally is with other MAC pigments. I also felt like the colors were more richer and intense in comparsion to past shades I’ve collected.
I got all the colors released aside from Mauvement which was a repromote from Rush Metal. The colors are truly intense shades that are super Fall friendly and will be great for creating unique, mysterious, dark eye looks! I can barely wait to dive in!
Blonde’s Gold is my favorite and happens to be a perfect shade of tan that contains so much gold it can easily be mistaken for a shimmering subdued beige shade.
Vintage Gold and Antique Green are next on my top list! These two combined will create a near perfect smoky green eye look. Vintage Gold is an olive green with traces of gold where as Antique Green is a true forest green shade.
Heritage Rouge is a deep burgundy with hints of brown.
Copperbeam is a fine brown with hints of deeper red which creates a tarnished maroon shade.
Mega-Rich is a burnt orange and ideally perfect for Fall!
And finally Museum Bronze is a taupe off brown with hints of gold.
As you can see a majority of the shades contain quite a good deal of golden shimmer which is quite alright with me as I favor a bit of gold in all my shades.
The selection is extremely Fall orintated but can easily work well in the Winter if you’re seeking some ultra chic smoky looks using bolder shades.
I’m glad I got all the colors as they are something well worth picking up! I’m particularly enamoured with Blonde’s Gold.
All in all I’m loving MAC Overrich! It’s a wonderful selection of colors that are Muse Approved for purchase!
Grab ‘em before they are gone!
