MAC Equilibrium Blush Swatches, Photos, Review


MAC Equilibrium Blush

MAC Me Over: Equilibrium Blush

MAC Equilibrium Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “light bronze” with a satin finish. It’s a soft tan with a hint of orange in the undertone and a pale, golden sheen. It is a touch warmer and less ruddy compared to MAC Pressed Amber, but it is nowhere near as orange or as intense as MAC Springshine. When sheered out, it has some similarity to Guerlain Sublime Radiant Powder.

MAC blushes last around eight hours on my skin (normal-to-dry), and Equilibrium has a very soft, smooth texture with good color payoff. It’s pigmented enough to give ample color but not so intense that one has to tip-toe around the blush when using it.

MAC Me Over is a 51-piece collection for fall, which will launch in North America on August 25th, 2011 and internationally in September 2011. It will launch online approximately August 23rd but there is no concrete online launch date. All products–unless otherwise noted–are limited edition.

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base Swatches, Photos, Review


MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base

MAC Me Over: Take Root Cream Colour Base

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich red brown.” It’s a red-toned brown with a hint of warmth, and while it’s opaque and nicely pigmented, it’s not as dark as it looks in the pan. There is a soft, frosted finish that’s not too heavy-handed. The color is similar to MAC Brown Script.

Cream Colour Bases tend to wear poorly when worn alone, because they have a lot of slip and take awhile to dry down, especially if you use them opaque–if you sheer them out to a wash, they will cooperate better when worn alone. I recommend setting with powder if you wear it over the lid. The creaminess of the formula, however, enables it to glide on like butter and easily blended across wherever you might apply it. I can see some using this as a blusher, perhaps, though not so much as a contour because of the shimmer in the finish.

MAC Me Over is a 51-piece collection for fall, which will launch in North America on August 25th, 2011 and internationally in September 2011. It will launch online approximately August 23rd but there is no concrete online launch date. All products–unless otherwise noted–are limited edition.
