MAC Me Over! MAC Basics collection is the largest of the three and it includes 25 pieces.
This collection focuses on classic colors and basics that everyone might want to include in their makeup wardrobe. There are a lot of very easy-to-wear pieces in here and it’s probably the most universal one.
The collection includes six eye shadows (Moleskin, Creamy Bisque, Outre, Satin Taupe, Mythical and Carbonized), two eye kohls (Teddy, Smolder), four lipsticks (Secret Lover, Peachstock, Offshoot, Oh, Oh, Oh), two cream colour bases (Take Root, Seaside) two powder blushes (Equilibrium, Stunner), four lipglasses (Illicit Social Light, Curvaceous, Plum Fun), two lip pencils (Spice, Chestnut), Studio Fix Fluid (NW20), Studio Fix Powder (NC35) and Studio Finish Concealer (NW25).
Moleskin, Outré, Mythical, Carbonized
Moleskin is a medium, warm, matte nude brown color. I was surprised that it wasn’t patchy, as I expected a matte would be. Really nice easy to wear color.
Outré is a deep mustard yellow color, also matte. This was definitely patchy and a really oddball color. I am interested in trying it out because it’s so different.
Mythical is a frosted copper color. This was very pigmented and really nice. These colors work so well with blue-eyed ladies!
Carbonized is a deep frosty dark brown (veluxe pearl). This is a gorgeous pigmented brown. Love it.

Stunner, Take Root
Powder Blush Stunner is a light coral pink satin color. SO gorgeous! This might be my new favorite MAC blush because I love these pinks. Very flattering and soft.
Take Root is a deep red/brown frost. Hmm I’m not sure what I could do with this one on myself because it’s so dark, but it is nicely pigmented and soft. This isn’t approved for use in the lip area.
Illicit, Curvaceous, Social Light
Illicit is described as a creamy neutral pink but it’s very peach/apricot colored on my skin. It settled into my lip lines quite a bit.
Curvaceous is a light greyed out pink. Another one that settled into my lips lines.
Social Light is a pearly medium peachy pink. SO pretty! I love this one, no settling into lip lines and very shimmery and nice.
Peachstock, Oh, Oh, Oh
Peachstock is a neutral satin pink, which is much more peach on me than pink. It’s got a little of that “mod” look to it on my skin, but also looks kind of nude. Not sure I love it just yet, though it went on evenly and is nicely pigmented.
Oh, Oh, Oh looks really scary in the tube but was surprisingly nice and light! It’s a bronze-y plum with pearl (lustre) and a little sheer. Love the color once it was on my lips and I love the gold shimmer in it.
Oh, Oh, Oh
I liked a lot of what I saw here, especially the eye shadows and the blush. Also love Social Light Lipglass. I think everyone will be able to find some good pieces in this one.
Availablity: August 25th in North America and September Internationally
