MAC Me Over: Lipsticks

There are eight shades of MAC LipstickΒ ($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.

How can Oh, Oh, Oh look like such a piece of dog poop in the tube and be SO pretty swatched? When I saw the tube, I thought “no way” and then I saw it was Oh, Oh, Oh (what a pain that is to type) and was really surprised.

I was surprised too – I was hoping for bronzey and then it was definitely NOT. I still like it, though! (Although I’m most tempted by the really vampy ones, even though I rarely wear lipstick.)

Hahaha I completely agree! When I saw the tube shot I was completely turned off but the swatch and the photo of it on Christine makes me REALLY want it!

It’s not for everyone and would recommend only for warm and midtone skin Individuals.

It looks like death on me with fair skin and looks wrong on cool tone in general. The shade is like peach tone concealer.

yea, I agree!
I’m quite pale and it looks odd on me too, using it with a lighter/pale lip gloss can make it look nice sometimes though, Or I actually just use it as a cream blush. πŸ™‚

why am i so drawn to reds? i thought for sure i’d pass on it, but i’m drooling over runaway red. but hey, the only true reds i have are port red (frost) and russian red (matte), so… maybe it’s justified, haha!

tempted by oh, oh, oh, rebel, and secret lover too.

I’ve noticed that most cooler tone red look warm on Christine. The same shades under up not look as hot red on me with my pink lips. T-T I end up feeling disappointing.

You might want to try looking into other swatchers as well – I’m pretty sure Vampy Varnish is more cool-toned in complexion. The swatcher’s complexion makes all the difference πŸ™‚

Hope that helps some~

im the same way with reds. im terribly drawn to them (even though i dont think i even have the guts to wear them out). but runway red looks GORGEOUS and like the perfect red.

Oh, Oh, Oh and Peachstock definately! I like the sound of Secret Lover, but I already have Quiet, Please. I can’t wait for the swatch of Offshoot and Prince Noir! =]

haha Oh Oh Oh was definitely not what I expected from the looks of the lipstick! I thought it was going to be a weird brown color but it’s actually very pretty. Yay for your swatches!!

Oh, Oh, Oh is very pretty, but I feel like it resembles something I already own. I already have Peachstock, Secret Lover is not at all what I expected and the other shades are too bold for me. This is good news for my wallet. πŸ™‚

Loving Oh Oh Oh, Rebel, Smoked Purple and Runaway Red. I was hoping Smoked Purple wouldn’t be a typical matte lipstick and would have a smoother feel of putting it on. I still want it though. I am dying for Prince Noir & Offshoot swatches. As of now, I plan on buying five out of the 8 lipsticks. Woot woot for this lipstick addict. πŸ™‚

Thanks for the gorgeous lip swatches! Runaway Red looks like it might be the red lipstick for me. I like the way that Oh Oh Oh looks as well, but was wondering how similar it is to Fabby? Thanks!

Definitely getting Oh Oh Oh and Runaway Red, they look gorgeous! Skipping Peachstock, Secret Lover and Rebel (it’s HOT but I already have it).

I’m undecided on Smoked Purple. I love the colour but I can’t help but think I might own something similar, and if it’s permanent at Pro then I could always pick it up another time I suppose… Christine – do you know how it compares to MAC’s Cyber or Night Violet Mattene? Thanks x

I’ll definitely purchase Runaway Red, Smoked Purple. Dark colors tends to look good on me, I’d buy Rebel as well but I already have it! Maybe I’ll get Oh, Oh, Oh as well but I’m still not sure.

By the way, Oh, Oh, Oh looks lovely on you Christine.

does anyone else think that oh oh oh looks a little like funbathing from the to the beach collection? maybe a touch or two lighter!

Oh Oh Oh reminds me of O which also looks bronzey in the tube but prettier on. I wonder if that’s where the name came from. I almost never wear reds but Runway Red is so pretty, I think I’ll get it. Secret Lover looks so pretty on Christine’s lips, I don’t think it would look the same on me.

I almost can’t believe that swatch of Oh Oh Oh did really came from that lipstick. I’ve scrolled down many times to check if it’s really true. I LOVE the color.

I’m NC25-30 Filipina and I was wondering if you think Peachstock and Secret Lover would work for my skintone?? I can’t distinguish if I’m cool toned or warm tones haha.

Most Filipinas are warm toned. πŸ˜‰

You might want to check out the lippies first, as they may look a bit washed out on you, unless you’re going for pale anemic lips. Sounds like you’re pretty tanned (NC 25-30), maybe Offshoot would look better on you?

Lovely swatches! Oh, Oh, Oh reminds me a lot of Sophisto, which is my go to lipstick. How do you think they’d compare? If they’re similar, do you think it’s worth it for someone who adores Sophisto to have both?

Probably not, but I don’t like lustre finishes (drying, short wear time), so it’s hard for me to recommend them in general.

It’s sickening how practically all lipshades look good on you Christine.:) Even the shades that would look like death on me from the nose down.

LOVE the look of Runaway Red – it just seems so plush! I’m also really surprised that Oh, Oh, Oh swatches so berry; it’s absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks for the swatches, Christine πŸ™‚ (Your lips must be so raw! I don’t know how you do it.)

A little off topic, in the picture were you are showing the Oh oh oh lipstick, what blush are you wearing or did you do the look you have on? Your overall makeup looks great!. I love it!

I’m interested in a bunch of these. Runway Red looks quite pretty. I keep meaning to try Rebel, but I can’t remember if I have or not. Smoked purple is pretty, but I already have Media and Night Violet. I’d worry that it’s too blue and would make my teeth look yellow.

i find blue based shades to make my teeth look whiter lol.. orangeish shades i feel make me teeth seem yellow =[ but i wear them regardless haha πŸ˜€

Hey Christine, would you compare Secret Lover to Beachbound in any way? I ruined my tube of it a month or so back and from your swatch it looks at least somewhat similar.

Thanks!

Whew! I’m glad to know that Russian Red and Runaway Red aren’t that similar.
Thanks to the “enablers” on Makeup Alley, I decided almost too late that I cannot continue to respire unless I get Runaway Red.
I phoned MAC, and was told that they still have “a few pieces,” so I ordered one.
A little voice inside my head whispered, “They’re hard to find; maybe you should get *two!*”
I’m proud to say that I told the little voice to shut up, and just got one. That will last me a long time, and hopefully it will be repromoted sometime, anyhow.

I love Rebel so much. I want to go out and get it right now! Oh, Oh, Oh looks really great on you-the color is so much nicer swatched than in the tube. Smoked purple looks gorgeous also, but I think I’m too pale to pull it off.

i agree about smoked purple dragging.. but its still loveable.. i also agree that oh oh oh oh oh or whatever lol, looks horrid in the tube and lovely swatched.. i like secret lover, kinda reminds me of a warmer acid washed… i really like runaway red, as well, but how would you say it compares to Ruby Woo, Russian Red, and MAC red? If I own all three, [plus viva glam 1], should i skip it? i really like the way it looks on you-theres something different about it, but i can’t think of what =[

Runaway Red is a deeper red, so it’s not going to be like brighter reds like Russian Red or MAC Red. I would think Ruby Woo would be a lot cooler-toned, since it is so blue-based. VG I is more of a retro red, so it has that hint of brown.

hi christine!

i was just wondering what eyeshadow are u wearing with rebel and peachstock. it looks so gorgeous… you look gorgeous=) thank you. what is your fave amongst the lipstick that you swatched. ty=)

Couldn’t help but notice how ugly Oh, Oh, Oh looks in the tube in that first picture at the top…then began reading the description thinking it just had to be a typo or something…then came the pretty swatch…and BAM! Gorg when worn! I think my pigmented lips will turn it really dark on me, which I’m not a big fan of, but it is unbelievably pretty!

An excellent dupe for Rebel without breaking the bank is Wet n Wild’s 908C… I think the shade is called Sugar Plum Fairy. I just bought it last week πŸ™‚

Christine, would you mind sharing your tips for applying smoothly and accurately out of the tube? Your lips look so great and I read on an old post that for review purposes you apply straight from the tube for your pictures on lipstick reviews. That’s how I like to apply lipstick on a daily basis, but sometimes (especially with slicker formulas) it seems like I can’t get great definition around my lips like you do. This is why I actually prefer the crayon like formula of Ruby Woo (and judging by your review of Smoked Purple, I’d probably like that too), because the slick formulas always rub all over my face and I find I mess up the rest of my makeup every time I have to wipe off my lips and try again! πŸ™

I knew I would like Oh Oh Oh but I don’t like the Lustre finish so I’m going to pass. I’m surprised I actually Love Runaway Red as I’m not a “red” lippie person but I’m seriously considering it as it looks like it could be my perfect red.

I am loving Peachstock! Peachy nudes are always a go. Rebel looks AMAZING on you Christine… I dunno if I could pull that off though with my fair skintone and coolish features. I am on the lookout for a nice red lip color for fall, I will def check out Runaway Red for that purpose!

Is it just me or does your swatch of Rebel in this post look darker than your previous swatch of Rebel (for the Sultry Season)? Is this just an inconsistency in lighting/camera/photo adjustments or did you do more layers for this one?

Very nice! Haha I always get so excited when I see the new MAC LE’s, but *oh bummer* I have to wait a month at least before it hits stores here in the Netherlands.

Oh, Oh, Oh and Peachstock have to be mine! Luckily I already have Rebel and Smoked Purple so my haul will not be disasterous for my wallet.

Wow! Runaway Red is STUNNING on you, Christine! I love your swatches. Plus, I have almost identical coloring to you, so Temptalia is a heaven-sent resource. πŸ™‚

Hey Christine, how would you compare Smoked Purple to MAC Cyber lipstick? Looking pretty similar to me considering the swatches.
You just made it so that I now have my eye on all the lipsticks! I’ll just live off cup’a’noodles for the rest of the month.

Christine, I just heard that this collection is going to be delayed. Please please PLEASE use your superpowers to find out if it’s true or not. D;

Rebel, Smoked Purple and Prince Noir are my favorites! I have Rebel already, but I’ll see if I manage to get my hands on one of the other two. πŸ™‚

And it’s interesting how Oh, Oh, Oh looks horrible in the packaging but it’s another story after it’s applied! πŸ™‚

Wow I didn’t expect Offshoot to be sooo pretty! So Offshoot will be the lippie going home with me and I’m so glad I didn’t cave and get Gem Of Roses as they are very similar but Offshoot will def be more prettier on me and its in my favorite Cremesheen finish.

I’m really looking forward to trying these when they arrive at the counter, but I have to say that Peachstock is the tackiest nude I’ve seen in a long time. Very disappointing. Oh Oh Oh, Rebel, Runaway Red and Prince Noir look gorgeous though. Oh Oh Oh reminds me of Crystal Pink from Estee Lauder.

I think I like offshoot and oh, oh, oh the best [that would actually wear but think Rebel is pretty too] I tend to focus on eyes so much I dont like to wear bright lipstick too conflicting.

Offshoot seems a little more sheer than the rest – would it better with a comparable lipglass over it?

Offshoot, Rebel and Oh,Oh,Oh might be coming home with me!!! Runaway Red loose gorgeous, too, but while my paler than pale skin agrees with Red lipstick, I feel rather self-conscious with it on lol I much prefer and am more comfortable wearing the mauve or the bold fuschia shades πŸ™‚

Hi. Christine. Is Runaway Red gonna work on my NC20 skin? I have Russian Red, which do you think is better? I’m also planning to pick-up Oh, Oh, Oh and Offshoot. πŸ™‚

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… πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

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”

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

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

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 πŸ™ those particular shades suit me, i love them, do you know of any dupes from other brands? pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease help me

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

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.

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?

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 πŸ™‚ .

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. πŸ™‚

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
