Round-up: MAC Sharon Osbourne Collection Overview & Thoughts

MAC Sharon Osbourne Collection
MAC Sharon Osbourne Collection

Launches June 2nd online on MAC’s website, June 12th at stores and counters. It will also be available at:  Nordstrom, Macy’sBloomingdale’s, Dillard’s (no exact date or time given for online releases at other retailers).

The MAC x Sharon Osbourne Collection also has you covered whether you long for lips, cheeks, or eyes.  The Duchess eyeshadow quad in this set performed better than in Kelly’s collection, though the Patentpolish Lip Pencils are a miss for me in general–it is a weaker overall formula as it’s not particularly hydrating and wears two hours or so.  The lighter shades apply unevenly, but the two newer shades applied better, so at least there was that.

BEST PERFORMING: Peaches & Cream (A-)
WORST PERFORMING: Innocent (C-), Patentpink (C)
MOST UNIQUE: Bijou (B+)
PERSONAL RECOMMENDATIONS: Peaches & Cream (A-)

Thanks for all the great swatches.

I am glad you gave good reviews to the few products that I have on my shopping list for this collection, now I am sure that I have made the right choice.

Because of Sharon’s age I was really hoping that the products in her collection would be mostly matte.

A total pass for me. I don’t understand this collection at all. Good thing too….saves me some money. MAC is overwhelming me with limited edition collections right now! Luckily, only the Aquatics really grabbed me (and I loved those eye shadows and liners…you were so right!).

I think I might pick up the blush. The eye quad is right up my alley, but it’s too similar to all of my other eyeshadow palettes to justify buying it (I have all of the naked palettes and the chocolate bar palette).

Sad to say that both these Osbourne collections were a huge disappointment to me! I know the quality is decent-good for a MAC collection, but I don’t really feel like I need any of these products. I assume that is because of my huge collection and most of these products are fairly basic and dupable. I’m honestly a bit upset because I wanted to LOVE the collection. Both Kelly and Sharon are awesome!

Thank you for ALL of your reviews of the MAC collections. I feel solid on my makeup decisions after them and know where to splurge and when to save!

If you had to had to purchase these some items from this collection and you only wanted to spend $200 dollars or less what products would you get?

Im a newbie at buying collections and I tried to get my hands on the alluring aquatic collection but was only able to get 1 shadow bc everything was already sold out. So when should I order the items I want? Is there a certain time the start to sell the products online or does it start at midnight on the release date??

MAC really releases whenever they feel like it. Lately, it does seem to be maybe 3-6AM PST, but it really can be any time they want. They may not even release on the release date for online. Stores/counters are more reliable re: adhering to the release date.

Maybe it’s just me, but the color of the packaging on both this and the kelly collection make it look cheap. I still love the way some of the products look, but they look a bit cheap to me
