Haul & Review: MAC Me Over

Hello everyone!

I've recently hauled some stuff from MAC.. like release date last thursday recent lol. I wanted to give everything a test run before I tell y'all about it! Of course here's the haul photo!
Sorry it's not the best photo, I'm still iPhone blogging because now my camera is missing.

I purchased;;
  • MAC Moleskin Eyeshadow
  • MAC Stunner Blush
  • Deborah Lippman Today Was A Fairytale Nail Lacquer
  • MAC 211 (with two more on the way)
  • MAC 226 (two of them)
I love the eyeshadow, it works the same as MAC Soft Brown but it has more of a cool tone to it.

The blush is absolutely gorgeous, but it's not a "must have" because I'm sure I have like 10 more shades similar to this in my stash. I really wanted to get Equilibrium but I'm not sure if I would ever use it.

The nail polish is heaven, if you love yourself some glitter! With only one coat the glitter transfers lovely. Likeeee, you wouldn't need 3 billion coats to get an opaque glitter finish. It's on the pricier side though (of $20!) and is a pain in the ass to remove.

The 211 brush is AMAZINGGGG. It's the BEST eyeliner brush I've used! It's amazing when I use it with my Bobbie Brown Gel Eyeliner. I haven't used it yet with a liquid liner but I can imagine it'd be even better! It's very easy to create the thinnest line or you can easily build on it and create a thick line and it makes winging eyeliner a piece of cake! I've noticed my wings are almost identical whenever I use this brush :) ...thus why I love it so much I've ordered two more to keep as back ups LOL..

The 226 brush is also a great brush! In my opinion I'd probably prefer the 217 for crease work still but if you want a really precise darkened crease this is perfect. It's fine tapered tip helps blend colors in effortlessly and gives you great precision control. I already own one of these so I just got two more in case it's dirty or if I ever lose one.

Overall the collection was a really good one. It has dark and neutral colors with some purples in the mix. I think everyone could benefit from this release and find something they like... which could be bad for one's wallet! It didn't rape my wallet as bad as I thought though ^_^ I leave you with some swatches...

Lipsticks, Eyeshadows, Blushes, Lipglasses

Cream Coloured Bases

Lipglasses, Lipsticks, Lady Grey Quad, Evil Eye Quad

Evil Eye Quad, Shadesticks

So what did everyone end up purchasing?

If you have any other questions about the collection I have a pretty strong opinion LOL.. I just couldn't cover the rest of the collection since I'm about to head to work but I definitely spent like 2 hours there swatching and comparing and debating :3

See you in the next post!

  1. I was thinking the same thing with that blush I have so many coral pink shades already. I got the mystikal & satin taupe eyeshadow. I really like them but thinking to go back for a few more items just not sure what because everything is just so simalar from what I have.

  2. Great purchases. I picked up 5 lipsticks and 2 eye shadows. I'm loving what you got, thanks for sharing. :)

  3. The blush you picked up looks gorgeous, and so does the Deborah Lippman nail polish! Wish I could afford some 0=

  4. I purchased... nothing. LOL. You know me ;]
