MAC Me Over: Take Root Cream Colour Base

MAC Take Root Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “rich red brown.” It’s a red-toned brown with a hint of warmth, and while it’s opaque and nicely pigmented, it’s not as dark as it looks in the pan. There is a soft, frosted finish that’s not too heavy-handed. The color is similar to MAC Brown Script.

Cream Colour Bases tend to wear poorly when worn alone, because they have a lot of slip and take awhile to dry down, especially if you use them opaque–if you sheer them out to a wash, they will cooperate better when worn alone. I recommend setting with powder if you wear it over the lid. The creaminess of the formula, however, enables it to glide on like butter and easily blended across wherever you might apply it. I can see some using this as a blusher, perhaps, though not so much as a contour because of the shimmer in the finish.

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.

I’m going to have to check this one out in person.It really caught my interest when I first read the description, but looking at it now, I’m debating purchasing it.I dislike hearing that it has shimmer in it, but I will test it out for sure.

Oh yes, this is the one I’ve been wanting to buy when I saw it on Chloe spring’11 backstage makeup. Thanks for featuring this Christine 🙂

it looks a lot like root ccb which is a pro one.at first look,I thought they changed the name! btw I am using root for contour so often since the shimmer is more like a sheen and it goes away when it is set with a contour colored powder blush or setting powder.I guess thi one will be great too.
