MAC Me Over hits counters on August 25th in North America, following September for international locations (I’m not given exact dates, sorry!). It seems like a major launch for MAC, so they appear to be doing a gradual reveal of products online – some products are available for purchases, others say coming soon.
MAC 211 Pointed Liner Brush ($18.00) is a precision synthetic brush with an extra-fine point. It is much more pointed at the end compared to the 209, which is long and skinny but doesn’t taper much at the end. The 211 is also firmer and denser, so it has less bend and give compared to the 209, so it should work better for lining. It is wider at the base than the 209, which means how thick or thin your line is will depend also on your application and technique.
MAC Seaside Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft peach rose.” It has a very warm, slightly bronzed look to it with a hint of peach–the rose is very, very subtle. I can see some using this as a highlighter, and I think it will work particularly well on darker skin tones as such. It has more of a sheen than shimmer to its finish, and it can easily be blended out for a glowy sheen on cheeks. It’s rosier than MAC Peachtwist but has a lot more shimmer than Burberry Russet.
MAC Stunner Blush ($19.50 for 0.21 oz.) is described a “light coral pink” with a satin finish. It has more pink than coral–I would describe as a pale, strawberry pink with a hint of peach. It has a champagne-beige sheen, which gives it a less-than-perfectly-pink color. It is pinker than the softer side of MAC Mighty Aphrodite. It is a little lighter than Benefit Bella Bamba.
There are six shades of MAC Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) launched with MAC Me Over. They include: Carbonized (frosty dark brown), Creamy Bisque (mid-tone ivory with pearlized pigments), Moleskin (nude brown), Mythical (frosty copper red), Outre (mid-tone mustard), and Satin Taupe (taupe with silver shimmer).
