MAC MAC Me Over Collection for Fall 2011

Launch Date: August 25th, 2011 (North America), September 2011 (International)

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.

  1. JC

    The blushes sound amazing–can’t wait to see photos!

  2. Mai

    Oooh interesting the 226 is coming back. I hope it’s softer than its earlier reincarnations

    • I don’t by MAC brushes that often but have a small eye (like the male model >___>) but if it’s soft I would be tempted to get that one.

      I’m a little vex with MAC model selection. The are lovely people but all the females have the same large eye area ration and only two of them don’t look like they have been picked from a catalog. If you really want a mac make over lest see a bit more diversity in bone structure as well in the face.

      • Lo

        oh man, i have to politely disagree! i think its an awesome diverse group of models, all different ages, races, sexes, just like MAC motto!! :)

        • Kathleen

          I agree!

        • But they all have with similar preferred facial structure traits and measurements used to identify beauty. Sure they got the all ages, races, sexes but they didn’t go to far out of the box for these measurements when it come to the face.

          I’s nice to see models that don’t look model selected to see what the art of makeup can do for refining the face. I’m personally have a very average face but makeup in particular in the eye area can emphasis your features that don’t really stand out (aka my small eyes and small brown bone).

          To me they feel like Catalog models. People you would see with above average beauty to sell items but not so crazy “perfect” either.

          • I also like to point out that I work in the media field so I’m very aware of how models are select to sell a product to the average comsumer or someone you might meet on a the street verses the high-end brands that want your to feel bad for not being perfect but you can buy our products to make yourself feel opulent or a Goddess.

          • fixurface

            Very interesting. Shirley is actually from Cleveland and shops at the MACs there all the time and her family is from there. She is just a very regular person trust me, I have met her. Your opinion just sounds negative. These are attractive people but most of the people that auditions were attractive. Is that wrong? Got to use what you get.

      • be

        I agree. I was also quite disappointed.

  3. leesie

    I’ve been wanting a 226 ever since I read your review raving about it. I don’t care if the rest of the collection is boring–the chance to grab one of those alone makes me so excited!

  4. MORENA

    No promo photos???

  5. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Noga Noga

    Oh my the 226 is back! I’m so gonna storm the store when this comes out :)

  6. flyavsted

    So pleased to see I have most of the colors in the quads ;) Repromotes are good. However, I want nearly all the single eyeshadows (except Satin Taupe). The blushes sound gorgeous!

  7. Jennifer

    This could very well be my big haul for the year. I like the sound of lots of these products!! Definitely considering both quads, all of the fluidlines, a blush, a lipstick, and maybe two eyeshadows. That’s practically $200 before tax, yikes. I hope dissuading swatches & pics are released before then. :P

  8. Lauren

    I just saw all the posts about the new collections and I pretty excited! Can’t wait for swatches and reviews :D

  9. Jasmine

    Aaahh!226 We Meet Again!

  10. Camila

    FINALLY, A PURPLE MATTE LIPSTICK!
    Hope it’s a true purple :)

  11. Lauren

    Wow! Feeling a little overwhelmed, but also very excited for all the new collections this fall.

  12. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Chrissy Chrissy

    Nice! I’ve been wanting to try Peachstock but wasn’t willing to pay an exorbitant amount on Ebay. Woohoo!

    • Yomna

      It’s permanent at the pro store. I love it! best nude ever =]

      • Michelle

        I second that! Peachstock is my most used lipstick ever. So versatile. So creamy. Fave MAC lipstick ever!!!! Also lovely is Burberry Romantic Rose. :)

  13. Liz Mc

    Oh. My. God. I want at least half this collection and I haven’t even seen swatches yet.

  14. Stephanie

    Here we go again. I sense a sleepless night where I spam the MAC website for a stupid brush that they should just make permanent!

  15. Devi

    … Is it bad that I’m rather negative about this sudden number of MAC fall collections? I feel as if there’s going to be a lot of duds within these numerous collections…

    That aside, there will naturally be several items from all of these recently announced collections that WILL hit the mark, and I can’t wait to see what those are! Otherwise, I’m skeptical.

    • Riana

      I feel the same quite honestly. I’m waiting for Semi-precious but it seems like the majority of collections for this year have been a bust.

      Quality over quantity, I’m sure MAC is raking in the money but I’m starting to feel disappointed by them.

  16. Dana

    I’m so excited about this collection! all wearable colors!

  17. Mo

    Geez! MAC is just too much. LOL!

  18. Mo

    I NEED MONEY!! LOL!

    • Christina

      I know what you mean! My wallet cannot keep up with all of the new releases! MAC collections alone will do some damage :P

  19. This collection sounds amazing, can’t wait to see pictures and the colour story! Christine, you’re on a roll today with new collection announcements! :D

  20. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mandy bxboricua

    Can’t wait to see this collection!

  21. Georgina

    YES. THE 226! <3
    Probably picking up Dark Diversion fluidline, too. c:

  22. No Feline kohl??? I was soooo expecting that!!! :”'(

  23. 226?!!? YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!

  24. L1onQueen

    226 and new fluid lines?! Count me in!

  25. Melody

    MAC is killing me! I’m a sucker for the fall collections. I love the sound of the quads. And the 226!

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Marina Marina

    Why don’t they just make the 226 permanent!? I really want to know what 211 and 214 look like though….

  27. Aww, from reading the title “MAC Me Over” I was thinking maybe it was a bunch of repromoted discontinued and limited edition stuff. I’m sure there will be pretty products in the collection though!

  28. I’m not overwhelmed or anything…

  29. YEY! My chance to get the 226!

  30. StellarStace

    the 226 brush is coming back? yayyy

  31. Emma

    Butternutty shadestick is coming back!!!

  32. Nina

    This. Is. Awesome

  33. Madison

    i almost passed out when i saw the fluidlines!!

  34. Ari

    why shadesticks??? BRING BACK THE GREASEPAINT STICKS!!!

  35. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of aradhana aradhana

    …Oh boy I think I’m going to be pretty poor! Even with the repromotes, too many things I’m already lemming!

  36. Desiree

    FINALLY!!!!! ive been waiting and wanting the mac 226 brush!

  37. Stephanie

    Loving that collection already! I want peachstock & stunner :)

  38. Jessica

    Hey christine is this the collection that MAC will chose regular people to be the face of the collection? Or is that somthing else? Becuase I remember that its supposed to be out this fall.

  39. Judy

    OMG, OMG, OMG I am having a lipstickgasm right now. I have wanted the Prince Noir lipstick since I heard about it a few months ago. As of now, this is the collection I’m saving for (trust me ladies, I’m sure I will say that about every other collection also…lol ;-) ).
    My wish list:

    Rebel Vivid pinkish purple (Satin) (Permanent)
    Prince Noir Deep blue-purple (Matte) (Limited Edition)
    Smoked Purple Deep eggplant purple (Matte) (Permanent at PRO)
    Runaway Red Rich red-blue (Satin) (Limited Edition)

    Lady Grey Eyeshadow Quad

    I want a few of the shadesticks, but I must be in “airhead” mode. I don’t know what they are. I’m thinking of: Street Cool & Heirloom

    I also want the Teddy eyeliner & Stunner blush.

    Oh happy days!!!!!! :-D

    • mumtaza

      My exact lipstick list,’cept for I already have rebel. And ooh girl do get it!!! I hesitated for a while b/c it’s so rich but it stays on forever. In fact it won’t come off even if you want It to. After that our paths diverge. I want evil eye and dark envy instead (perhaps to wear with jealousy wakes.) Race you, lol!

  40. Marie

    LOL! I JUST bought the 224 after thinking the 226 would never come back! Oh well, I just have to have both then…… :D

  41. Becca

    I want: the lady grey eyeshadow quad, cakeshop shadestick, maybe I’ll check into the eyeshadows or lipsticks and lipglasses, maybe a fluidline, BOTH of the blushes(of course- I LOVE my blushes) and maybe a cream colour base.

    Oh boy……

  42. MC

    My wallet just gave me a dirty look lol. I am soooo looking forward to this collection!

  43. Diana B

    The 226 is mine

  44. Wendy M.

    I’m surely going to be poor when this collection launches. XD
    Christine, what is the difference between shadesticks and greasepaint sticks?

  45. Brittany

    SO excited mac is repromoting the 226!

  46. Ester

    I just want Rebel and Prince Noir lipsticks.

  47. Cherokee

    Interested in Lady Grey quad, Outre and I NEED the 226 brush. Thankyou

  48. Jenna

    Unfortunately I will be in Indonesia , on a small island of sumatra without any Internet and no way of ordering these products,:( I have always wanted the 226 and the lady grey eye shadow quad sound great and stunner blush .
    I might have to beg a friend to make the online order for me . I am sure the 226 will become a frenzy and you will be left 226less unless you stalk Mac online or crack it when the collection hits the store.

  49. Julia

    Yes!!! So excited that the 226 is coming back. I will probably buy at least 3.

  50. Megan

    After Semi-precious I WAS going to take a break from MAC collections for awhile…until I saw this. Well, crap.

  51. Maria

    All I really want from this is a 226 I have wanted once since I feel in love with MAC!

  52. Mel

    I think I’ll be taking a closer look at Prince Noir if it runs warm enough and Oh, Oh, Oh lipsticks. Also Good Times and Social Light lip glasses.

  53. oh my goodness, the 226. I WILL get that brush. eeek! :D

  54. Yaaay for shadesticks! I look forward to the lipsticks!

  55. Gretchen

    I’m not at all bothered by the slight disappointment that Semi-Precious is turning out to be with this collection coming out not too long after! My first quad(s), first shadestick(s), not to mention the veluxe pearl shadows. My bank account is going to hate me for sure.

  56. Amy

    My wallet, tho…

  57. snm

    seeing all the new collections today,I really feel bad about getting myself some clothes this week lol:) the fall collections are always my favourite,I will have to save money until october.I am getting all the fluidlines for sure! wish tendersmoke was available in single pan though :/

    • I wanted all the Fluidlines as well till I saw the photo’s. Need to see swatches of Midnight Blues and Dark Envy in particular to see if they are forth getting for.

      I really wish mac would produce Inkspill Liquidlast in a Fluidline or Superslick fomula.

  58. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Laura Laura

    Oooh. Definitely want the 226 and the Fluidlines (except Dark Diversion which I already have)! I’m not crazy about Shadesticks but the colour of Street Cool (Mid-tone grey violet taupe) sounds right up my street. Both of the quads sound interesting too.

  59. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Alicia Alicia

    I don’t think MAC has enough fall collections… :)

  60. shuz4ever

    226…226…226…this is going to be my new meditative chant till i finally buy one. Wish MAC would just go ahead and make it perm.

  61. Flick

    oh the 226 that i’ve been wanting for so long!!!

  62. Katie

    I hate when MAC makes huge collections. It becomes less fun and more overwhelming!

  63. Grace

    I’m confused by what you mean when you say it anniversarizes Fabulous Felines. Does that mean that all the repromotes are from that collection? Because I don’t remember a lot of them. Thanks!

  64. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Dawne Icedcaramelllatte

    Wow! This is a pretty large collection but many repromotes and permanent shades so maybe my wallet will be safe. I can’t wait to see Oh, Oh, Oh plum bronze lipstick. Glad to see the shadesticks and Fluidlines back. Also interested in any of the blackened green shades. Can’t wait for pics!

  65. Chanel

    Can’t wait to see the Prince Nior lipstick!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Amanda Dubs

    Awesoooome, im interested to see pictures.

  67. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Maja Maya

    Wow! Lol that’s a lot. Christine, why do your prefer the 226 over other brushes like the 224 or 222? Would you still recommend it if I have those? Thank you!

  68. Maclover

    wow i want too much of this collection… $$$

  69. That is right. MAC MAC Me over with this deluge of MAC”s products. You can only wear so much makeup……well at least now I can see why the 226 is so special.

  70. meme

    Wow! Seems like we just had a review of the MAC summer collection with all the cute beach/surfing 60’s packaging/campaign.

  71. 226 Brush OMG finally! Only my single most sought after brush :)

  72. Kristen

    226 brush … I’m so excited! :D

  73. Marie

    Opinions people…..and Christine especially. If I already have the 219, 217 and 224, do I really need the 226? What will it do differently?

    • amanda

      I need to know this as well lol

    • Erin

      The 226 looks thinner and more tapered. Look for reviews on youtube, or google it for pictures. I think it looks like a great brush.

    • Sylvie

      Hey, if you have the 217, 219 and the 224 (which I all own, as well as the 226), then you don’t need the 226. To achieve the same result as the 226, which I use for crease blending, you can put colour in your crease with the 219 and blend it out with the tip of the 217. I had those two before I got the 226 and so had to think of new ways to use them afterwards to make sure that I continued using all my brushes. The 226 was also a bit prickly, especially after a wash, but I like it for blending in a pinch. If you want a more diffused sort of crease blending, the 224 is a better choice- in other words, you get a more defined line of colour with the 226. So if you already own the 217, 219 and the 224 and don’t feel like spending anymore money on another brush, then you really don’t need the 226 because your current tools already do what it does. I also use the 226 to sweep on colour, but I’m sure you have brushes that already do that. Hope this helps!

  74. Erin

    Wow, I think I may start saving for this one. I’m interested in picking up the 226, and I can’t wait to see the shadesticks, cream colour bases, and eyeshadows!

  75. Nazih

    I’m so excited to get the 226!

  76. emily

    I love the sounds of this! Especially the new blushes!

  77. Piper

    I am super di duper excited for the return of the 226. The lady grey quad sounds exiting and so does the dark green fluid line. I’m actually kind of glad that the other collections sound like complete misses, (semi-precious, colorizations, i’m talking to you!) so i can blow all my money on this. :D

  78. Sylvia

    AHH. Can’t wait to see the photos for this collection!

  79. Thdhb

    This is gonna be my favorite collection of the year. Love the darks!

  80. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Chloe Chloe

    is the 211 a new brush as i can not find it on the mac site horray for new brushes and great eyeshadow!

  81. amanda

    Meh. Just seems like a bunch of permanents and repromotes from the warehouse. I specifically went to pro awhile back to get peachstock and smoked purple, and i also bought rebel with them. Kinda upsets me that theyre only repromoting what they didnt sell during the holidays and not things that the majority of people would love to have a second chance to get their hands on (bite of an apple much?). I think ill want thr red.lipstick, outre e/s and maybe the fluidlines. Pass on the rest

  82. amanda

    Ps i wasnt aware the small shader was discontinued? I see it all the time! And wasn a SE.version in a tartan tale holiday brush set? Weird!

  83. amanda

    Crap wait im thinking of 224 lol! Whats the diff?

  84. Adelita

    Satin blushes & 226? Oh, I’m dizzy w/ soooooooo many collection to come…

  85. I am anxious to see the collection, but can not see the pictures! : (

  86. Wendy

    Oh my god. This collection seems so interesting! I have to pick up something from this collection (: Well, alot! Haha. SO EXCTED!

    Wonder if Germany gets Dark Diversion this time. Or the Violet one again like last time.

  88. sheena

    omg i cant wait to get a few 226 brushes im soooo happy it’s coming back out!

  89. Katie

    Hey Christine, because this anniversarizes the fabulous felines collection, does that mean there will be one that “anniversarizes” the venomous villains? Meaning there is another big collection after this?

  90. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Natalie Natalie

    Weeee! More brushes!! I live for new/repromo brushes haha! I love building my brush collection. This sounds like a great collection!

  91. Rebe

    Cannot wait to see swatches of the fluidlines…I have no restraint when it comes to them.

  92. Giselle

    Holy cow! MAC just ate my wallet again. This is my must have collection. I want all the lipsticks. All the shadesticks. I also want both blushes. Both eye quads, both liners and maybe a lipglass or two. When will we be seeing some pictures? That PRince Noir lippie is calling my name.

  93. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Anna Anna Griffith

    Christine, I’m looking to buy the 217 and 224 soon, but if I get the 226 when it comes out do I need these brushed aswell? thanks

  94. Phylena

    Shadesticks, Peachstock lipstick, and the 226…I can see that I need to start saving my pennies…

  95. Victoria

    will this collection have special packaging?

  96. Gillian (AKA Munchy)

    This makes me glad that I skipped out on semi precious

  97. poisonrouge

    The lipsticks sound really great, esp the Runaway Red! The fall collections are always nice

  98. Kim-Mary

    I really hope the Prince Noir lipstick is an actual deep blue purple & not a red or pink purple. I’m so excited about this collection. I am hoping it will be released in Mid-August and not Sept since I will be far away from home. When will we start to see the promotional pictures?

  99. Giselle

    Loving the items. Not the photos too much though. They seem quite tame for such a Fall collection. That will not stop me from buying out this collection though. I want just about everything from it. :-)

  100. Lena Vaz

    IN LOVE with the fluidlines… I want all of them!
