MAC MAC Me Over, Fall 2011 (With Pictures)

I hope you're doing fine on this beautiful Friday. If you've been leaving me comments, I apologize for not writing back. My Google Friend Connect hates me and keeps signing me in as "anonymous." Blogger hates me too. It wont let me fix my blog and wont let me preview posts. Silly error messages are just killing me. Until then, thanks for hanging in there with me.

Just in time for Fall, MAC is putting out a GIGANTIC collection called MAC Me Over. Ranges of plums, pinks and mauves, oh yes they know what I like. This is definitely a collection for the cool colored mavens.

MAC MAC Me Over Collection, Fall 2011

US Launch Date: August 25th, 2011
International Launch Date: September 2011

This season, our most epic casting call ever, an online contest with thousands of hopefuls submitting a photo or video, each asked to finish this statement: MAC Me Over! Because… James Gager, MAC’s Senior Vice President, Creative Director, picked six stars who best express the MAC Me Over! Motto – style, heart, and soul – to be the face of MAC Fall Colour around the world. A three-part collection each creating a different look: the first features our artists’ favourite nudes and pinks, including classics and new limited-life shades; the other two go bold, one with the season’s of-the-moment shades while the second plays it icy cool.

FOTD: Parisian Skies

Hi everyone! I threw together this face pretty fast for the 4th of July since Baby Peaches let me have 20 minutes to play with my face. I'd just ordered Parisian Skies from MAC's Bloggers' Obsessions collection so I figured why not check it out. It's the perfect night blue sky color without looking too blue.

Lancome Dual Finish Foundation Powder Matte Buff II
YSL Touche Eclat #2
MAC Pink Cult blush
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Petticoat

Eyes- All MAC unless noted
Urban Decay Virgin (highlight and inner corner)
Vanilla(all over)
Parisian Skies(lid)
Powerpoint Eye Pencil Engraved
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Lingering brow pencil
Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara

Marquise d' lipstick

We ended up celebrating the 4th over at the inlaws house with a BBQ and fireworks. They have an amazing view of like 4-5 displays throughout the county. The Duke of Puke slept through the entire thing.

What did you end up doing for the 4th? Or was it just another Monday for you since you don't live in the states?

MAC Semi Precious Haul, Swatches and Comparisons

I'm sure you thought I'd fallen off the Earth by now. Nope, just had a baby and I've been a little preoccupied with the Prince of Poopie. So preoccupied that makeup has been the last thing on my mind, shocker! I'll post soon about his royal cuteness.

I did venture out of the house with the Duke of Barfington to check out MAC's Semi Precious collection when it launched. I ended up hauling Mineralize Skinfinishes in Semi Precious Crystal Pink and Rose Quartz and the 234 split fibre eye blending brush. I wasn't too keen on the mineralize eyeshadows or the skincare this time around. The $20 price tag per eyeshadow just made them not worth it since they had a bit of fallout.

Semi Precious Rose Quartz

Semi Precious Crystal Pink

I compared Semi Precious Crystal Pink to the Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight. The outer circle is very close in color but way more glittery. When blended together it looks like a slightly darker more glittery By Candlelight.
Left to right: Crystal Pink center, Crystal Pink outer ring, By Candlelight, Crystal Pink mixed.

I also compared Semi Precious Rose Quartz to Stereo Rose and Petticoat. I found Rose Quartz to be much pinker than Stereo Rose. It's much more of a match to Petticoat but still ever so slightly pinker and tons of glitter again.
Left to right: Stereo Rose, Rose Quartz outer circle, Petticoat, Rose Quartz mixed.

I'm liking the new 234 dual fibre blending brush. It's supposed to be for packing on the color with the goat hair and blending out with the synthetic fibers. It performed nicely at packing on the color, about what I expect with a MAC brush. However, it performed awesomely with blending. I think this might be my new go to brush over the 239 just because it's an all in one brush.

Did you end up hauling anything from this collection?

PS does anyone know how to fix my right sidebar? I remember Blogger acting all jacked up months ago when I posted and somehow it moved everything on me...

Disclosure: I bought everything pictured.
