So, what would be MACnificent right now? How about a vanilla milkshake and some fries!? But that just might be me doin’ my #pregnantladythings. The upside of the new MAC MACnificent Me! collection is that everything is calorie-free!
What makes you MACnificent? Is it your impeccable style, your sense of humor or your ability to wear crazy colors on your lids and lips and make them look completely legit?
Whatever it is, I think you’ll be able to find something of interest in the new MAC MACnificent Me! fall 2015 collection. 🙂
MAC MACnificent Me: Eye Shadow X 9 ($40)
MAC MACnificent Me Eye Shadow in Cheer Me On, Well Behaved and Everyone’s Darling ($16 each)
Eye Eyeshadow in Cork ($16)
This collection has a neat twist. The six models for the campaign, whose identities haven’t been announced yet (as of Sept. 18, 2015), were chosen from among the zillions of MAC fans who submitted their picture and bios and answered the question, “What makes you MACnificent?”
The collection drops on the MAC website September 21, and then arrives a little later on MAC counters and stores October 1 through November 12.
And it’s a huge one! — 42 pieces, with a number of traditionally fall-ish items like dark berry and plum lip colors.
Here’s a glimpse…
MAC MACnificent Me Paint Pots from the left: Stroke My Ego, Imaginary and Nice Composure ($22 each)
MAC MACnificent Me Paint Pots in Frozen Violet and Stormy Pink ($22 each)
MAC MACnificent Me Patentpolish Lip Pencils in Pleasure’s All Mine, Look Lively, It’s Really Me, Make Me Proud and My Flip Side ($20 each)
The first thing I noticed was the contrasting elements — warm and cool colors, sheer and opaque coverages — that kind of thing.
There are a lot of intensely pigmented and rich reds and oranges that hardcore MAC-aholics who aren’t afraid to work an orange crease should like.
