The MAC Me Over! collection for fall 2011 will hit stores at the end of this month in North America and it’s got a little something for everyone.
MAC Me Over! was a contest that MAC held where thousands of people submitted photos or videos. They were all asked to finish the statement “MAC me over because…” James Gager who is their Senrio Vice President and Creative Director then chose six people who’s ideas best expressed the MAC Me Over! motto “Style, Heart and Soul” to be the face of the collection all over the world.
This very large collection comes in three parts each with a different vibe. They are called Icelandic Cool (icy cool colors), New Black (this seasons “it” colors) and MAC Basics (the artists favorite nudes and pinks, some classics others limited edition shades).
Today I am mixing things up from the Icelandic Cool and New Black collections to bring to you three of the four nail lacquers. The one not included below is from Icelandic Cool and it’s called Quiet Time (beige nude creme).
Fatigues is the color from the Icelandic Cool collection. This is a muted, dusty looking army green creme. I love the murkiness of this color, it makes it different from a lot of other army greens. Before you ask, it’s definitely not the same as China Glaze Westside Warrior. That one is much brighter and more green than this one.
The formula was ok, but a little thin. I needed three coats to build it up nicely. No streaks though.
Deep Sea is from the New Black collection. This is a dark blue teal with hints of green. This color reminds me of a blackboard for some reason. It’s really dark, but I love that it doesn’t look black even in low lighting.
The formula was thicker than Fatigues, but not too thick. I was able to get full coverage in two coats.
Purple Majesty is also from the New Black collection. This is a really dark eggplant purple/red creme. It leans more red to my eye than purple though. I don’t think the color is very unique or interesting.
The formula was not my friend. This one was very patchy and I didn’t get full coverage even after three coats. You can see bald spots near the cuticle. UGH. These kinds of dark red cremes always do this to me.
I liked Fatigues and Deep Sea a lot. They are both nice greens, different from each other and good fall colors. Purple Majesty wasn’t a super unique color and the formula drove me bonkers.
Availability: August 25th in North America and September Internationally
