Don't Forget - MAC Overrich!

MAC Overrich, a collection of eight pigments, launches today, alongside Cult of Cherry. I received samples of all of the ones featured sometime ago, so you can see my earlier review if you missed it or need to re-read!

MAC Overrich Swatches

  • Blonde’s Gold is nice neutral-white kind of color with a touch of warmth in the form of bronzy-gold; it makes a great neutral base.
  • Museum Bronze is a deep, metallic bronzy-gold color. I know in the swatch photo it looks rather bronzy, but I swear it seems more like an antique gold shade when I stare at on my hand (then again, the light by my desk isn’t the *best*). Anyway, gorgeous bronze color. It’s probably not a “must have” for everyone, but it is for me.
  • Mega-Rich is a subdued coppery orange color. It’s not really like Coppersparkle, just because it has a subtle sheen, no over-the-top frosty shimmer/sparkle. I think it’s a bit more orange, too.
  • Copperbeam is a rich copper-burgundy color; I see definite tones of earthy red mixed in. This is actually somewhat similar to Heritage Rouge — it’s distinctly different in a sense, but the two are close. This one has more red-brown to it; it reminds me of Antiqued eyeshadow, actually.
  • Vintage Gold is a more antique version of Golden Olive (and less frost in its finish, more subtle sheen). Kind of like a dirty green with lots of gold pearl.
  • Antique Green kind of reminds me of Deep Blue Green with more teal and gold in it (I am not saying it is a dupe for this color!!). Maybe a lighter version? The color is very much like a dirty green-teal color. It will be interesting to use this in a look.
  • Heritage Rouge is a reddish purple–kind of like Cranberry eyeshadow. Like the others, this has a metallic sheen, but it isn’t too much, unlike some of the existing frost pigments. I think the texture and finish of these alone makes them worth checking out, even if you might have a possible dupe.
  • Mauvement is a shimmery cool-toned purple with a gray cast to it. I find it incredibly frosty, and it doesn’t feel as smooth as the others.

Check out swatches!

Christine, is it safe to assume that all pigments are ok for your eyes…. because on your First tutorial (silver and black) smokey eyes, you mentioned the Silver (metal) pigment is not safe for your eyes?
Please advise. Thanks!

Ooh Antique green is pretty, it actually reminds me of Teal’s more wearable sister. That’ll look great with red hair, so I’ll definately be getting one 🙂

I asked about samples after picking out most of my Cult of Cherry haul, and the MA said I could have samples of all of them. ^.^ Needless to say, I was pretty stoked.. and now I can actually play around with some looks, before I decide if I want the full pigment or not.

Just wondering if anyone knew a dupe for the mauvement pigment? I really like the colour, but I’m not allowed to buy online, and seeing how it was a limited edition… 🙂
Shame I missed out on this!
