MAC Me Over Lipstick
MAC Oh Oh Oh Lipstick

MAC Me Over: Lipsticks

There are eight shades of MAC Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) launched with MAC Me Over. They include: Offshoot (mid-tone neutral pink), Oh, Oh, Oh (plum bronze with pearlized pigments), Peachstock (neutral peach), Prince Noir (deep blue-purple), Rebel (vivid pinkish purple), Runaway Red (rich red-blue), Secret Lover (pale pink with yellow pearlized pigments), and Smoked Purple (deep eggplant purple).

  • Offshoot is a pink-plum with subtle red undertones. This shade has a cremesheen finish. The color coverage is nearly opaque, but it has the drier texture of a cremesheen, so it doesn’t feel thick or overly creamy. It is similar to Maybelline Bit of Berry but more muted. It is plummier than MAC Craving. Hourglass Nocturnal is slightly redder.
  • Oh, Oh, Oh is a pink-plum with gold shimmer. The color is semi-opaque but true to the lustre finish. This shade has a lustre finish. It is sheerer and less burgundy than Benefit Breakup Rumour. It is plummier than MAC Capricious. Looks like it is similar to Plum Dandy but pinker.
  • Peachstock is a light-medium beige with the warmth of peach. It’s opaque when applied. This shade has a satin finish, and it is permanent at PRO stores. It’s a bit lighter than MAC Imagine This and OCC Trick.
  • Prince Noir is a deep, dark burgundy with red undertones and subtle shimmer. This shade has a matte finish. The color coverage is opaque, and I can see that this would would have a tendency to bleed around the edges, particularly if you find you are prone to that (I am not, but it did bleed a bit on me). It reminded me of a better quality Chanel Maniac. Make Up For Ever #49 is much purpler.
  • Rebel is a rich burgundy with a fuchsia shimmer and vibrancy. The color is mostly opaque when applied. This shade has a satin finish, and it is permanent. It is darker and more vibrant than Guerlain Bee but deeper than Dolce & Gabbana Orchid.
  • Runaway Red is a medium-dark blue-based red with a subtle fuchsia sheen. It’s mostly opaque on lips, but there is a hint of translucence. This shade has a satin finish. Make Up For Ever #48 and MAC Dark Side are browner. Guerlain Gwen is closer but not quite as dark. MAC Digna is similar but not as opaque.
  • Secret Lover imparts no real color but lots of beige and pale gold shimmer. This shade has a lustre finish. It is similar to MAC Pretty Please.
  • Smoked Purple is a dark eggplant purple with cool undertones. The color is mostly opaque, but the lipstick itself is quite dry so it’s difficult to get a really even layer. It will tug and drag across the lips. This shade has a matte finish, and it is permanent at PRO stores. Dolce & Gabbana Lust is less purple, while Make Up For Ever #48 is closer, it’s less purple/browner. MAC Faultlessly F/W is darker, purpler.

MAC Lipsticks are vanilla-scented, and the texture and color vary depending on the finish. Lustre lipsticks tend to have sheerer color with a glossier finish. They are supposed to be moisturizing, but I have always found them drying, and they have a tendency to wear off within two to three hours–faster if the shade is light. Satin lipsticks are more opaque with a creamier finish and tend to wear longer (four to five hours). Matte lipsticks wear well (four to five hours) but can sometimes be dry.

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.

There is a good variety of colors within the eight lipsticks (wow! eight!) launching in this collection, which is nice, because you are sure to find the right shade to pair with the various blushes/eye products in the launch, too.

    Love the swatches!

    I’ve been curious for a while now, how does Peachstock compare to Myth formula-wise? I found Myth was way too dry for even with a good lip cream and lipgloss (and since then, I’ve grown to like these peachier shades anyways). I’ve been loving Viva Glam Gaga2, of course it’s my luck that it’s limited edition… :D

  2. Maria

    OMG….I LOVE prince noir. Runaway Red is a must too. Love deep rich reds!!!!!

  3. Sara

    I quite like Prince Noir. Thanks for the swatches!

  4. Yvette

    is prince noir similar to hang up?

  5. Emily

    Secret Lover and Oh Oh Oh look STUNNING on you, Christine, but I’m pretty sure that both of them would look really awful on me…It’s like everything is magically flattering on you :)

  6. Dormouse

    I like Prince Noir. But, I’m forced to admit, as I get older I’m less flattered by these darker tones for my lips.

  7. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Kellee Kellee

    I just ordered oh,oh,oh and offshoot!
    Fyi, the lip products and eye shadows are already available online. Sadly, the fluidlines are still labeled as “coming soon”

  8. what lip liner could I use with prince noir?

  9. How do you find ‘Runaway Red’ compared to ‘Ruby Woo’ or ‘MAC Red’. I have fair skin and blond hair. I can’t make up my mind… ‘Russian Red’ is a candidate, too. I really need some good advice since the MUA at my local counter doesn’t know much it seems… xx

  10. Christine, WOW, you sure can wear just about any lip shade and look gorgeous can’t you? I LOVE Runway Red on you! I decided to google it for the hell of it and found it on Ebay as a “pre-sale?” I guess that’s the new term for “we have it before you, so come let us rip you off!” The price is really JACKED UP, of course! Can’t stand these greedy scalpers!!! Christine…one of the sellers: ~ravens2011~ …Just in case you don’t know, is using a big picture of your lips, not even the tube or anything, just your lips to sell it! She has already sold 2 of Runway Red, Item number: 220828083932 is the # of the one listed now. You can easily report it to Ebay and they will take it down. She’s also using your lips to sell Peachstock, Rebel and Purple Smoke. There are a couple swatches for other items that might be yours too. She also says if you want anything else she doesn’t have listed from the collection, to contact her to “make arrangements to get whatever you want!” …I thought I’d let you know in case you’re not aware. xXx…Sorrow

  11. “oh, oh, oh” is absolutely GORGEOUS on you !!! I can’t wait to pick that one up!!

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

    I’m definitely eyeing oh, oh, oh, rebel and secret lover but will have to take them on a test drive. =)

  13. Yrie

    Is it just me or does it look like Runaway Red was swatched on top of Rebel? Or does it have the same fuchsia undertone?

  14. Dani

    Thank you for the fabulously thorough reviews! How does Offshoot compare to Brave?

  15. ashlee

    What’s the difference between Riveting Rose and Smoked Purple?

  16. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    I just got Oh, Oh, Oh today. LOVE it.

  17. Maryam

    Hey Christine, love your blog and i praise you for the harwork, you are amazing, i have a question regarding lipsticks, i have sooooo many but i seem to use only two which are MAC Jazzed and Cut a caper, both were limited edition :( those particular shades suit me, i love them, do you know of any dupes from other brands? pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease help me

  18. Paula

    how would you say prince noir compares to VV dark deed?

  19. Stacy

    I turned in my back to mac products today and got the OH OH OH lipstick :) and the dark diversion fluid line, sketch shadow, and the new liner brush, I had a $50 Nordstroms card :) so i spent $1.57 woop woop!

  20. I am trying to decide if I should get Secret Lover lipstick. It’s such a “nothing” color, but it seems like it would be a great no brainer color to just throw on whenever.

  21. helly

    Is Offshoot similar to MAC Faux? I already own Faux but today I ordered Offshoot.

    Thanks and all the best wishes from Germany

    Helly

  22. Sazz

    I bought Prince Noir, but it has a spiced kind of scent to it. Well, for me at least. It was kind of weird. It smells cinnamon-y or something. Did anyone else find that it smelled different?

  23. jiwon

    wow~ i have a question !
    prince noir looks like Dark Deed..
    prince noir better?? or Dark Deed better ??
    i can buy only one..;(

  24. Ana

    All the swatches are gorgeous!

    We don’t have MAC around here, but I’ll be using them to compare with my hand swatches of other lipsticks, so I know what to expect on my lips before I buy them :) .

  25. Alison

    I’m SO regretting not catching Oh Oh Oh – it looks absolutely gorgeous. I’m terrible with Limited Edition items, sadly!

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Precious Precious

      Got Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Impressive yesterday, I found it quite similar to Offshoot in terms of color. For those who’ve been wanting to get Offshoot but weren’t able to, I think Impressive would be a nice dupe. :)

  26. Carla25

    Hi, just wanted to ask, the lipstick Secret Lover, its looks alittle purple? or is it my computer screen making it look like that lol x
