In case you hadn’t heard, this year marks the 25th anniversary of The Simpsons. To celebrate I bring you the MAC x The Simpsons Collection for Fall 2014!
I have been watching the show since the very beginning, which makes me feel like some kind of ancient dinosaur. I definitely haven’t seen every episode since I never watched them religiously, but I can safely say I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of episodes. So I was really excited to check out this collection when I first heard about it. Yes it’s kind of silly. And yes it’s kind of gimmicky. But I don’t care because it’s fun, cute, and the colors are great!
Lisa’s Spikes is a lime green (frost)
Apple Squishee is a medium Kelly green (frost)
2 Dozen and One Greyhounds is a dirty olive green (veluxe)
Chalkboard Dreams is a deep blackened teal (velvet)
Love these colors! Most of these had really nice pigmentation and payoff. 2 Dozen and One Greyhounds is pretty pale, I had to go over it a few times to get this payoff, but it’s a great shade.
Harpooned Heart is a light baby pink (lustre)
Sexy PB&J is a medium violet (veluxe pearl)
Beehive Blue is a medium bright blue (veluxe pearl)
Vivacious Vacuum Cleaner Bag (hahaha) is a deep navy/purple (frost)
Aside from Harpooned Heart, which was rather light and not easy to get good payoff from, these shades were really nice. Great pigmentation, they felt smooth, and they all go together really well.
Pink Sprinkles is a light blue-toned pink (satin)
Sideshow You is a light peachy coral (satin and online only)
I am completely in love with both of these shades because they are “my” colors. They are both cool-toned and look so nice with my skin tone. I think Sideshow You has a little extra sheen to it, which makes me love it just slightly more than Pink Sprinkles. But I’ll be wearing both of these shades a lot, I think.
Yep they even have Nail Stickers called Marge Simpson’s Cutie-cles featuring all of the main characters on each nail. There are 16 stickers in all.
Nacho Cheese Explosion is a neon lime/yellow.
Grand Pumpkin is a creamy bright orange.
Red Blazer is a bright fuchsia.
Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy is a bright blue-violet.
For me Nacho Cheese Explosion and Grand Pumpkin didn’t have the greatest formula. They both settled into lip lines quite a bit and didn’t look good. Plus, Nacho Cheese Explosion isn’t exactly an easy color to pull off! Red Blazer and Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy have much better formulas, and were way more wearable and pretty.
And last but not least we have a set of lashes called 7 Lash, which represent Marge’s long, spiked lashes.
I am really pleased with this collection. I love the packaging and was rather impressed with the shades and formula of most everything included. Most of the items are rather cool-toned though, so if cool-toned colors don’t look good with your skin, you might not find much here for you.
You can find this collection on the MAC website and in stores starting September 4th until October 2nd.
