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. Gillian (AKA Munchy)

    My wallet awaits to have its butt kicked :D

  2. Freya

    I am LOVING every inch of this collection :) It’s like they took my favourite colours and put them into makeup… brilliant! For me, that is. Not for my bank balance, however.

  3. Yumi

    226 & peachstock shall be mine. The rest we’ll have to see about!

  4. Jennifer Lam

    I have a feeling I will want “Stunner” blush! xD

  5. Annie S

    MAC should have done a Harry Potter/ Hogwarts collection for the new movie… with the four houses as the four parts… I think they would have made a killing with that

    • Piper

      That would have been such a good idea! They’d have to clear it with the harry potter people. I would totally buy like a slytherin-green eyeshadow or whatever, though. :)

      • Alyssa

        that would’ve been so cool! The compact could’ve been the mirror of erised (mirror that lets you see whoever has the matching twin so you can comunicate) and awesome designs on the packaging! Well, i would still let it go till (hopefully!) next year’s fall collection. Better yet, as j.k. rowling has said she may be doing more, just not about harry, they could do it to celebrate the new genre of the world of wizards and witches! Hear me MAC cuz i can promise you that everyone will go crazy over it!

  6. Tara s

    Omg! 226!! You are mine!! Well, along with the other make lovers lol!! Fluidline… You are mine as well!! man oh man MAC!! Why do you do this to us… At least we have time to prepare! I’ll be stalking the Internet for when Christine says it’s online!! I can tell this will be a big order. Husband forgive me, for I have no control!!

  7. Alannah

    Gorgeous!! I love it all, even though it’s not that unique it’s very flattering… looks like there’s something for everyone!

  8. Dini

    Wow! This collection seems so greatly overwhelming but so very very lovely! The promo pictures make me smile – love the makeovers. Even the nail polish descriptions caught my eye. I’d better start saving up now…

  9. VERY thrilled! I love the look of the products and I LOVE the photos of the people! <3

  10. Ana

    Now THIS is what a MAC collection should be! These products all look amazing (i hope the swatches meet the expectations I know we are all having right now, lol!!)

    My hubby is going to be soooooooo mad at me after this collection lol!!!

    BTW– LOVE THE MAKEOVERS– excellent idea MAC to use REAL people– please do that more often!!!!!!!

  11. liz

    wow, this collection is huge! can’t wait for swatches!

  12. Liv

    Oh man, I absolutely LOVE this collection too much…I need more money ;D

  13. yeahhhhhhhhhhhh 226 is BACK :D :D what an awesome collection and am sure am going to splurge on all the fluidlines :D :D
    thanks for sharing Christine :D

  14. WOW Christine, Thank you so much for sharing all of this! The collection looks amazing. It’s unlike the past couple of collections where I haven’t been tempted to buy. Are MAC fall collections typically the largest?

    • They have large collections year-round – I don’t know if I’d say fall collections are the largest. Holiday is probably the biggest.

  15. Christina

    Those fluidlines will be mine! Everyone is going wild about the 226. How good is it?

  16. Kary

    Whats up with the last girl’s pupils! I’m freaking out!

    Super excited for this collection!

    • MissMercurial

      I think she’s wearing circle lenses, lol.
      Totally didn’t notice that til you pointed it out XD

  17. Judy

    Ooooh. Such beautiful promotional photos of all the winners! I am really in love with this collection. This will be my haul for the season I believe. I still have plans on ordering from the other upcoming collections as well, but I may have to limit to just a few items because this one is going to break the bank. Thank you, Christine! Can’t wait for swatches, especially of Prince Noir. That is mine!!!!

  18. I am FINALLY excited about Mac again! These promo images make my heart flutter. I’m going to start saving up immediately for the Fall.

    One thing, though- The picture they supplied of the Evil Eye quad doesn’t really seem to match the shade descriptions. Kinda looks like somebody in PR goofed. Funny thing is, I like both the descriptions and the image, so I think I’ll be happy either way…

  19. ellie

    can’t remember where i read this but i heard that MAC sculpting powders are coming out with one of there fall collections. anyone know anything about this?!

  20. OMG, I want everything!!

  21. Miranda R

    Well, it’s official. I am going to be very broke after this collection comes out. The shade sticks look great as do the eyeshadow quads.

  22. Rosie

    This collection seems boring, just average fall colors nothing special. I’ll probably still pick a few things up, but nothing is screaming at me right now. Then again swatches and seeing it in person can always change my heart!!!

  23. Mallory

    This collection is huge! It’s nice cause there may be something for everything, but I always get so overwhelmed when there is so much. I can’t make choices and then I end up walking away with nothing.

  24. Brie

    Luckily for my bank account, only a few items in this collection interest me…Seaside cream colour base could be my must have, as well as the Oh Oh Oh lipstick (though I’m afraid from the description it may be more brown/bronze based than the promo pic shows). I’ll also check out the 226 (I have the 224 already and might be able to do without) and the Deep Sea nail polish. Other than that, I’ll save my money for the Sheen Supreme collection since I’m obsessed (Eight Sheens and counting)!

  25. LOVEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! <3

  26. Omg! I want all the fluidlines!!!!

  27. Marie S.

    Ugh….Mac needs to stop coming out with all these good collections. My credit card already hates me.

  28. Gina A

    MAC why do u have to do this to us!!!! I am so excited for this collection! i better start saving up! Collection total for me was almost 170 dollars b4 tax!! Not allowing myself to spend more than one hundred tho!

    On my list:

    Peachstock Lipstick ~ 14.50
    Creamy Bisque Eyeshadow ~ 15.00
    Moleskin Eyeshadow ~ 15.00
    Heirloom Shadestick ~ 17.50
    226 Brush ~24.50
    226 BRUSH U R MINE!!! LOL super excited but will have to order online since i will be on vacation :(

  29. Miss Mercurial

    Power to MAC for choosing a guy as one of their faces. No reason girls should be the only ones who get to have all the fun :)

  30. Testy

    I’m getting a strong Illamasqua “make up for your alter ego” vibe from the makeover pictures.

  31. Caroline

    Blush, brush and quads, oh my!

  32. Mariella

    Is it just me who thinks half those models look better before? Eager to see the quads, the blushes and some of the lipsticks!

  33. mel

    I’m not sold on the promo photos… they made perfectly fine looking people looks ridiculous. I’m sure it was fun for them, though.

    As for the collection- if we take the current pattern into consideration, I’m sensing a lot of busts with a few good to great products scattered throughout. Why can’t they just put out smaller, fewer collections with a higher rate of hits than misses? Oh, right, Estee Lauder knows a lot of people will buy anything with the MAC label on it regardless of quality. Capitalism in action, folks!

  34. Leash

    You describe Offshoot lipstick as a mid-tone neutral pink, but in the photo it looks like a dark bronzy brown colour.

  35. Patty

    This comes out the day before my 21st birthday!!!! I will be asking for MAC gift cards only. Woohoo!

  36. Amanda Dubs

    I want the lady grey palette

  37. Holy carp this is HUGE…so definitely something for everyone. I LOVE this idea surrounding the collection. They are reaching ouuta the box for sure with Bloggers and now this. LoVE it!

  38. Sofia

    is Take Root CCB anything like Root CCB that is been discontinued ( or limited..cant recall) years ago? i remember buying wihtout much thinking and turned out to be one of my favorite.

  39. Lady Di.

    This is probably the best collection I have seen in a while! I want all of it! I cannot wait!

  40. cait

    This is quite the collection my gosh! I must start saving now if I want to even imagine having all that I want from it !!!!

  41. Gretchen

    I’m confused about the price increase for the quads and eyeshadows. =/

    • MAC raises prices on approximately half of their products in August and half of their products in January/February, so these reflect those price changes.

  42. Nazih

    This collection is going to make me go broke :(

  43. Mel

    The makeover of the older lady is incredible. :) So glamorous.

  44. Andryroxy

    That blue and green fluidline gel liners look like the ones from Mickey Contractor can’t wait to see the swatches

  45. Allison

    I’m so glad they brought Dark Diversion back. I regret not getting it when I saw it the first time. I shall not make the same mistake again!

  46. grace

    peachstock is back yay!!! and is rebel lipstick the same as Permanent line?

  47. lmnmakeup

    I know the girl in the third picture with the short hair and red lips! That’s awesome!

  48. Suzanne

    Officially my favourite collection since MAC Mickey Contractor

  49. Lady Grey quad, Tundra shadestick, Stunner blush, and THE 226 OH MY GOSH… for sure gonna try and get those things :)

  50. Anna

    Seaside CCB and Stunner blush sound great! What a wonderful promo picture, I love it, especially that bottom left transformation. FIERCE!

  51. Celeste

    Must.Start.Saving.Now.

  52. Karen

    Oh I am SO excited to see the 226 is back. I will have to buy a couple to add to my brush collection, I regretted only buying one last time!

  53. Mary

    Interested in the fluidlines for sure!

  54. Grace

    This all looks really great and very wearable which I’m excited about! I too am glad the 226 is making another appearance because I missed out on it before, but I’m just dying for the 165 to be re-promoted!!!

  55. Elle

    This collection looks cool, but I’m kinda bummed that so many of the repromotes lately are repromotes from, like, last year…that or I have just OD’ed so much on past MAC collections that I’m dying for something newer. Le sigh. I want another round of bloggers’ colors… :)

  56. Cat

    Are we really supposed to believe that these were just random fans of the MAC line that got chosen? Because they’re all screaming “models-that-haven’t-made-it-yet”… disappointing. I agree with some of the other comments, I wish there was some more diversity in bone structure and eye size.

  57. Ivette

    I feel so out of the loop. what’s all the rage about the 226??

  58. Liz

    the fluidlines look *so* gorgeous – especially Avenue! *___* with IMATS happening here this month and all these mac collections next month, I’m going to have to do some serious budgeting.

  59. Samantha

    I’m going to be spending all my money on this, I can tell.

  60. Gloria

    Wow, I’m looking at a $253 purchase prior to taxes… I really hope your reviews and swatches help me lower that amount, Otherwise I’m looking at picking up some overtime at work! ;-)

  61. LM

    tundra looks good but isn’t there supposed to be some new paint pots coming soon?

  62. Andrea

    I think is one of the prettiest MAC collections! :)
    But i think MAC should slow down a bit on their collections. :/

  63. makeupfan141

    Im drooling…def saving for this one.

  64. Becca

    this is my list so far:
    The Wee Coquette Liglass
    Lady Grey Eyeshadow Quad
    Mythical Eyeshadow
    Butternutty Shadestick
    Cakeshop Shadestick
    Seaside CCB
    Stunner blush
    Equilibrium blush
    and that’s narrowed down…
    I REALLY want Stunner Blush and Mythical eyeshadow (it looks like a really colour) but I want the other things a lot two and I still want the UD 15th anniversary eyeshadow palette, if I can get my hands on it by the time that I get back to Canada… which i probably won’t :((( oh well, and I’m broke right now, haha, did I mention that yet? ;)

  65. amanda

    In the pic of all the makeup together they show 7 eyeshadows and only list discriptions of 6 do you see that and also when did dark diversion come out before meaning which collection?

  66. Ana G.

    Lady Gray must be mine!! Can’t wait for your reviews Christine!

  67. Krista

    OH. MY. GOD. Those are my first three words when I clicked to see what’s in this collection. MAC MAC Me Over has WON ME OVER. <3 Can't wait to get y hands on these! :)

  68. romina

    omg can’t wait!

  69. Melissa

    Pretty positive that I will purchase one or two items from this collection. Looks like there is something for everyone.

  70. Troian

    I’m a little confused about the descriptions of the lipsticks and then seeing the pictures. Prince Noir is suppose to be a deep blue-purple lipsticks (I was thinking Go for It, but darker matte type) the picture it looks brown. Same with Oh Oh Oh suppose to have purple in it, but looks like a dark peach color. MAC who is coming up with these colors that aren’t matching? No cool.

    • Katie

      I too am confused about some of the lipstick descriptions but I think Prince Noir is indeed a blue-purple lipstick. It was used on some models in the recent runway shows and it does appear to be a blue/purple lipstick. Google MAC Prince Noir and you should find some images of models wearing the lipstick from the runway show. I don’t know why it looks brown in the pic and Rebel also doesn’t look the same as the original Rebel. It seems that the descriptions for Offshoot and Oh Oh Oh need to be switched. Offshoot looks like the purple/bronze lipstick and Oh Oh Oh looks like the mid-tone pink lipstick because the pic of Offshoot doesn’t look pink at all but does look bronze. So all we can do is wait till swatches are available and see what the outcomes are but the descriptions are strange indeed. I usually only buy lipsticks from MAC but I want the Midnight Blues Fluidline because it looks so pretty. I’m interested in the plum/bronze lipstick whether it’s Oh Oh Oh or Offshoot, I really hope its the creamsheen finish but if its pretty enough and is a Lustre, I’ll get it anyway.

      • Catherine

        Offshoot is the brownish pink color that is a cremesheen. Oh Oh Oh looks kinda like Funbathing from To The Beach but a lustre.

  71. SkatCat

    I am loving the MMO collection greatly even though I’m slightly confused by the color descriptions like some of you say and the actual items.
    I was wondering if we have heard anything about the Cindy Sherman, Gareth Pugh, Johnny Weird or the holiday collections coming out within the next two months or so?? I need to know. I am jsut so impatient lately with MAC.

  72. Sonal

    The people in the makeovers look incredible! Edgy yet beautiful in their own way.

  73. wow, big collection. i’m curious about outre eyeshadow, need to see your review first though :). i’ll be getting the 226 for sure.

  74. artemis

    adam lambert, cher,dunno, la roux, lady gaga

  75. Meagan

    i am so feeling this collection- Man, this fall I’ll be so broke, but so much more beautiful than normal :D

  76. Joyce Galugbo

    The collection looks OK,but I feel MAC needs to take a break from Limited Additions. Most of the collections especially this year, were terrible. For this collection I will get the Evil Eye Palette, if the the green color is similar to Femme Noir and couple of the Fluidlines.

    I think MAC should do a Revival Collection, bringing back products that were very popular with customers of different ethnic group. I love to the Spiced Chocolate palette, MSF Warm Blend, MSF Warmed, MSF Metal Rock, 3n lipgloss, Femme Noir Eyeshadow and 5n Lipstick to be revived.

    Or MAC could re-formulate its foundation line. Improve the color range and make the skin undertones more sophisticated like the MUFE HD line, sort out oxidation problems, make all foundations long wearing, heat and transfer resistance; and investigate the skin break out issues associated with the Studio Fix foundation line.

    Well, sorry about the rant.

  77. Liz

    I’m soooo excited for the shadesticks! I need all of them!

  78. Jillian

    this collection is huge! I know two things i am definitely getting: dark diversion fluidline (i missed it the last time it came out) and avenue fluidline. I’m a huge fan of fluidline!

  79. Sara

    Am I the only one who noticed that the Dark Envy and Midnight Blues fluidlines look identical to the Ivy and Siahi fluidlines from the Mickey Contractor line that came out not too long ago?? I have both Ivy and Siahi and I swear these “new” fluidlines are identical to those ones.

  80. kinella

    finally a collection i feel like spending money on!! :)
    love what they did to the mature lady’s look, her skin looks beautiful and radiant still very natural to prove that women are beautiful at every age.
    bravo! :)

    PS: Christine, thanks for your blog ^_^

  81. Nyisha

    iLove this collection…its good for everyday day looks becuase most of my M.A.C products are for night/evening….cant wait to get the Peachstock lipstick and 226 brush =)

  82. Judy

    I finally saw a swatch of the Prince Noir l/s I’m dying for. It’s beautiful. More like a dark, rich berry color. Probably a must have for the Fall season. Can’t wait until Christine gets it and swatches it.

  83. mae

    ooooo i think im in love all over again!! i see alot i needs to get!!!!

  84. Shauna

    I cannot wait. . . :) I really want all 4 of the fluidliners!

  85. Jakky

    oooh!! 226!!! NEED!!! as for the collection, i think only fluidlines for me. :D

  86. Hey Christine, do you think Smoked Purple is any kind of dupe for Riveting Rose? I already have riveting rose so im not sure if i should skip smoked purple!

    Thanks for the extensive info :)

  87. Ember

    Ooooh. I think I’m going to really like this collection. I love the third look and can’t wait to find out the colours she is wearing.

  88. Sadie

    Oh jeez! Everything looks fabulous except for Satin Taupe, which I already have and love. My wallet will be beating me up after this collection…

  89. Kathleen

    I want soooooo much!
    226!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    all the eyeshadows, except moleskin and satin taupe cause i already have it!
    at least one fluidline
    eeek! my wallet will be frowning big time! so glad i skipped semi precious and colourizations!

  90. Em

    I’m excited about the fluid lines because I’ve never owned one and I want color! I don’t need another black or brown gel liner. I’m especially drawn to the dark envy and midnight blues.

  91. angie

    Is it me or are the prices going up AGAIN??

  92. I love when MAC does collections focusing on the art of makeup more than the packaging. Don’t get me wrong i love some Hello Kitty and Venomous Villians but IMO the actual product suffers in more than hlaf of the collection. All of these colors look beautiful, I am definetely interested!

  93. Alex

    I’m late to the party, but this is a pretty cool idea! I look at these photos of the people selected, and I keep thinking “Kevyn Aucoin.” I think he’d approve of all these looks – and the concept.

  94. Piper

    You could buy the permanent shades for 50 cents less any other time. I’m not going to buy anything permanent because it would just cost more.

  95. Vvn

    the blushers and ccb in Seaside have got me!

  96. Sophie

    i want everything! :)

  97. Chloe

    love to see heartless from VV swatched against runway red

  98. ActingGal

    This collection looks amazing! I love that they are bringing back some shadesticks!

  99. Isobel

    the three new fluidlines and the teal and purple nail polishes are my wishlist :)

  100. mzthng7

    Hey, Does this collection have special packaging?
