MAC Me Over sees the release of two new eye quads. I got Lady Grey to try out but I have to say it’s not very me. I don’t do taupes so well I fear, they remind me of vintage romance novels featuring Fabio as the hero! ha! Because boyfriend always looked like he had on fancy shades of purple and taupe eyeshadow on those covers!
For a very long time I wasn’t a big believer in MAC Shadesticks. I used a single shade one day and instantly I was converted!
So I’m happy to report that the MAC Me Over! Collection will feature four shades of Shadesticks (some brought back from the past) which don’t get nearly enough love lately after the release of Paint Pots.
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!
Sometimes you have to keep us makeup junkies interested. We’ve tried it all so it’s hard to get us juiced up about a new product.
Cream eyeshadow isn’t exactly my idea of breaking new ground however one that promises an eight hour wear and includes a rather nifty cooling applicator….hmmm, now you’re attracting my interest.
The new Clinique Lid Smoothie Eye Colour promises an eight hour formula, comes in a range of 12 shades, and has a cream to powder formula but that’s not the cool part, “cool” get it? Each shade comes with a cooling applicator!
