MAC Overrich Pigment Swatches and Photos

MAC Overrich Swatches

I recently purchased samples of the seven new pigments from MAC Overrich, and they finally arrived today! (Quite literally, five minutes or so!) You know I had to give you guys swatches right away! πŸ˜‰

So here are my quick thoughts on the seven colors:

  • 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.

Oy, I want some samples too! I guess I’ll hafta wait. the girls at my freestanding are pretty generous πŸ™‚ I gotta get Vintage Gold, Antique Green an Shimmering Rouge. I’d love to utilize the latter in the pink challenge. But alas, I must wait! =P

OMG, Blonde’s Gold! OMG, Museum Brown! OMG, Antique Green! These are all stunning, actually. Even Heritage Rouge… not usually my colour choice/family, but it’s beautiful. I cannot WAIT for this collection to come out, even if it’ll leave me penniless.

How in the world did you buy samples? You must have some sort of thing going with employees of MAC or something. Anyways, you have to do a look ASAP! Strangely, these colors remind me of last years summer eye shadows. Isn’t that funny? I’m shocked, because there has to be more colors than this!

i have the same question: How could You get samples???
if only i could get some samples of some pigments in the future πŸ™‚
did You pay for them,or were they free???
by the way thx very much for the nice swatches,i really enjoyed watching them,as well as reading the descriptions πŸ™‚
they all look gorgeous,my fave is Heritage Rouge :-))))

I’m not a massive fan of pigments on the whole, but I think I may just have been seduced by Vintage Gold and Museum Bronze…

Haha, I think I know where you bought them Christine ^^ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ !
Well, they will be out in August in France…I think i wil buy antique green,vintage gold,heritage rouge and maybe copperbeam, and then will try to find a friend who buy the others to share ^^
Thay look beautiful, but imo,more the time passes,the less mac make innovation… Blonde’s gold, museum bronze & mega rich seem easily dupable..

hmmmmm I think the only color that I am really super duper excited about is Blonds Gold πŸ™‚ But I look forward to checking out all of them in person.

Hey Christine! Thanks for the swatches, these look amazing and i cant wait. Although i can hear my bank account crying already..
What would you compare Blondes Gold to? Its soo pretty, i might need 2!


Do you think you can do some comparable swatches, I would love to see how they compare to some of the exsisting eyeshadows and pigments. Thanks for getting this to us so early, really helps me prepare my wallet and my husband for the haul!hehe.


Lovely swatches, Christine! I want so many of these, but since most of these will be permanent I’m going to take my time on deciding which ones to get. Right now, I might get Mega Rich, but does it look too similar to Off the Radar? I see Off the Radar at CCOs all the time, and I might just get that one instead of Mega Rich


Thanks, DreamerChan! Where did you hear these will be permanent? Haven’t heard that!

Mega Rich and Off the Radar have such different textures/finishes, it’s hard to compare them. Mega Rich is more of a copper, Off the Radar is a dirty orange.

I was reading it on Specktra that all the pigments except Mauvement and Mega Rich in this collection will be permanent at Pro Stores.

And thanks for the comparison, I think I’ll just get Mega Rich πŸ™‚

I so want to get sample or split piggies with someones cause i dont need a whole jar I want them all but mauvemovement only cause i have that one!!!Now to find either

So what shall I do find a pigment buddy to half with or buy samples???I want way to many to buy all of them!!! I wouldnt even know where to start.Darn that Mac I like way tooo much lately

πŸ™ Dang it!! I wish I hadn’t seen this….I have a feeling I will buy them all!!! I haven’t yet bought ANY pigments…do you think they work better/stay truer longer/than the eyeshadows!? How do you get them to stay on? Thanks!!! πŸ˜‰ LOVE the site BTW Keep up the good work!!

Hi C-dub,

LOL!! I love them as bases. There are so many, and you can get sooo many looks using them under various colors. I use mixing medium πŸ™‚
