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.
I rarely consider backing up shades since my stash is large and it’s absurd to buy duplicate products but two shades from the upcoming MAC Me Over! Collection has me rethinking the cardinal rule of never buying the same color twice.
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!
I’ve no idea why but I get my trippy hippie on whenever I hear MAC Charged Water and I start singing Bridge Over Troubled Water…so weird. I dunno, I just break out into my Garfunkel impression and bust a grove whenever someone mentions the product.
Dunno how much a grove one can bust when it comes to singing Bridge Over Troubled Water although I will say I’ve actually seen them perform this live and Garfunkel is just as tranced and trippy now as he was 150 years ago. True story.
Anyway, MAC Mineralize Charged Water Skin Hydrating Mist has taken up residence on my desk for Summer and I see no end in sight.
