I recently acquired these two pigments, which I believe are from this fall’s Overrich collection.  I think the left one is Blonde’s Gold, and the one on the right is Mega-Rich — but I could be wrong, since I’m going purely off of descriptions.  Both of these pigments are marked sample/working name.  Both of these pigments are ridiculously smooth, rich, and luxe.  They remind me quite a bit of last year’s Rushmetal launch, which Overrich is meant to anniversarize.

See some swatches…

    These are just beautiful! I don’t have many pigments and these are the kind of colours I love (I always wear a neutral-ish smokey eye – great terminology, eh? ;)). I think I might just have to fork out for these and add them to my ever-growing MAC collection. :)

  17. I am so excited for these! They are so beautiful!

    Hey Christine, did you ever verify that Jaolous is the same as Mega-Rich? I believe I saw you had samples of the overrich pigments by now and I have a jar of jaolous as well so I was hoping they’d be almost identical. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Christine,
    thanks to the awesome reviews and your various tuts here, i just picked up my first pigment (Mega Rich)… was worried it’d be a lil orangy, but somehow on me, it looks for deep bronze gold *yeay!* any chance of you doing a look around a mega-rich base anytime soon?

    • I’m so glad that Mega-Rich worked out for you! I believe I’ve done at least one look with Mega-Rich, try doing a search for it :) I can’t remember if it was the base or not.
