MAC Me Over releases August 25th and is a collection inspired by the Fall 2010 MAC Me Over! contest which was a search for for the essence of what makes MAC people beautiful. The online contest asked fans to submit a photo and video finishing the statement, “MAC Me Over! because…”
Six individuals truly stood out from the submissions and were selected to fly out New York City and experience a superstar level photo shoot and collaborative makeover with industry luminaries such as world-renowned photographer Michael Thompson, A-list stylist Paul Cavaco, hair guru Serge Normant, makeup artist Brigitte Reiss-Andersen, and of course, our very own Creative Director of M·A·C Cosmetics Worldwide, James Gager, who oversaw the project from its inception and hand-selected the winners.
This collection reminds us why MAC is so near and dear to our hearts, it reminds that makeup is about YOU whoever YOU are…Boy, girl, black white, old, young, man, woman…!
Let’s take a look at some of the shadows released with the collection!
MAC Me Over! will release several shades of single shadows as well as two quads.
I received two of the shadows from the release which were Satin Taupe and Mythical.
Satin Taupe: This is a frost finish but easy to wear without looking too shimmery or frosty. The shade is a true taupe with silver shimmer that has a bit of deep brown to it. I find the color smokes out very well to add mystery to eyes.
Mystical: An instant favorite for me! This is a Veluxe Pearl finish with a smooth formula. The color is a fiery copper with a bit of red to it.
You’ll want to pick up Mystical for Fall as it’s one of those shades that makes me think of falling leaves and Satin Taupe is a given for those who adore taupe shades.
Are these or any of the other shades from the MAC Me Over! Collection on your wish list?
