MAC MACnificent Me: Eye Shadow X 9 ($40)

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. 🙂

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…

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.

Speaking of the pigments, another great thing is the number of options for women (and men) of color.

Much more in the video at the top, and as always, thank you for watching. 🙂

    Your makeup looks gorgeous– especially love the eyes! Wish I could manage something that nice! (So are you one of the Mac people winners? Is that what you were sooper sekritly doing at the Mac studio recently?)

  3. Monica says:

    Hello! I was wondering what type of finishes are the lipsticks? I’m eyeing self aware, but if its a luster or something it definitely won’t work on me ):

  4. Ooooh, the collection look good, thanks for the preview. One of the blushes definitely tickles my fancy. And so do the unconventional eyeshadows. I’m the girl who wears red in her crease, lol.

    P.S.:What would be absolutely MACnificent right now are pancakes. A bit fat stack of pancakes. With lots of sugar, and syrup and jam and errthang.

    Hi Karen! Enjoyed your video showcasing the MACnificent collection. It looks very tempting especially the eye palette! What makes me feeling MACnificent now is their liquid mineralize foundation. Love it!

  6. I´ll have that milk shake and some fries too please. To go, so I can devour them while watching your video.

    Overall, it’s a pretty nice looking collection. These are great shades for fall.

  8. Tatiana says:

    Loved the video. I have to admit I usually don’t get excited by all the MAC releases, because there are so many of them. This one has me excited, especially since you said the shadows in the 9 pan are good quality. Love some of the paint pots, too. I love Simply Swinging, too. I hope I can find a way to make it last. I usually don’t get very good wear out of most polishes.

  9. Anne-Marie says:

    This collection kicks Haute Dogs’ ass. I’m lemming quite a few pieces, but my limited resources allow only for Fashion Revival, which I NEED.

  10. Nikia Terry says:

    I really love the collection, but I think imma pass. I wish that the mattenes were matte..man.. Lol.

  11. Astrild says:

    This collection look promising!!! I hope everything will perform well.

  12. Charisma says:

    I’m excited for Deep Love lipstick to come. I can’t find the mattenes anywhere yet :/
