Published in: MAC Makeup

Kiss me, you impetuous fool! But wait — let me apply my lipstick first. ๐Ÿ™‚


Just some quick swatches of a few of the lipsticks from the upcoming MAC Me Over collection on NC42 lips/skin (arriving on North American counters Aug. 25; internationally this September).

I left Tabs with specific instructions to swatch and post anything MAC-related while I was gone, but because he’s a cat, he never listens to a word I say.

You know how it goes…

I was surprised by Secret Lover because it’s much more wearable than I thought, but Prince Noir? — something tells me that guy’s gonna be tough to wear.

    Love that prince noir lipstick…..probably too dark for NW10 skin? I still want it though!

  2. Eden-Avalon says:

    “I left Tabs with specific instructions” Well there’s your problem. YOU (a mere puny human?) instruct one of our ever-tolerant and fuzzy masters? DON’T MAKE ME LAUGH.

    I was hoping to be more excited about these lippies but none of them call out to me. Granted, I’m just starting and I think they’re all too…alternative bold? ie: Not bold in a red or orange lip kind of way but in a so so nude or so so dark way.

  4. Futuralon says:

    I think prince noir looks pretty good on you but might before suitable for someone with a lighter skin tone. Imagine it with the shiny hair, powdered face and pencil liner of the 30s &40s along with cardigans, suiting and wool coats of fall/winter.

    oooo! Rebel looks dangereux! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love them all! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. polarbelle says:

    Rebel is really your color!! It’s a great color but it looks fantastic on you.

  9. Anna says:

    Ooh, I looove Rebel as well. Gorgeous for fall, methinks (now hopping over to check out the Lipglasses)

  10. Marina says:

    I LOVE Rebel. All lipsticks look nice on you actually, just very unusual to see you with such shade as Prince Noir ๐Ÿ™‚ But I love such shades actually, wore a similar one for my Birthday this year.

  11. My favourite is Rebel on you, really brightens your face! Also lemming after Peachstock, can’t wait till they’re released.

    Rebel defo best!

  13. laksh says:

    Peachstock looks great and I think you are carrying off prince noir very well ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Diana says:

    My favorite is Rebel. Prince Noir is way too dark for my skin tone, while Peachstock and Secret Lover are too pale. Looking forward to find them in any MAC store in Indonesia. Thanks for the info, Karen!

  15. Chris25 says:

    I kind if want to try Rebel l/s. Whenever I swatched it in the store I always thought it sort of looked too fuchsia on me, but I think I was so hung up on deep reds I was prejudiced. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Nina says:

    Rebel & Prince Noir are so so so perfect for fall/winter!

  17. Rita says:

    I think Prince Noir looks good on you. I could not wear it though (NC20, redhead). Same goes for Peachstock.

  18. Tabs looks awesome with pink eyeshadow! Does Rebel look like your Evolution Revolution lipgloss?

  19. Taryn says:

    Loving Prince Noir & Rebel! I’m still getting Prince Noir even though it kind of reminds me of Dark Side a bit. I was hoping for PN to be a little more blueish wine color. Karen, do you find the matte finish of Prince Noir to be creamier than previous matte lipsticks? Tx.

  20. Inky says:

    Loving Rebel so much I’ve marked my calendar! I may get Prince Noir but I think I have something in my stash that looks similar from Besame Cosmetics. Must check!

    • alex says:

      PN looks a lot like Besame’s Noir.
      Rebel is a permanent color. You don’t have to wait for this collection to release to swatch/buy it.

  21. Elle says:

    Rebel has always been one of my favorites. And I would like to try Prince Noir with a lighter gloss on top. Wonder how that would look with a dab of EvRev. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Sana says:

    LOL @ that “after” pic xD
    I actually like Prince Noir best of all these lipsticks, I’d love to wear it for when I go out … Though on the other hand I already have a ton of such lipsticks :/

    Whatchu talkin’ about! Prince Noir is my favorite on you!

  25. Stephanie says:

    I have to agree that I like the Prince Noir best. I think it stays on really good throughout the day as well. I love the peach colors for spring/summer as well. Thanks for the great post!

  26. Corryn says:

    I love the colors! Their lipstick rocks

  27. Rissa says:

    secret lover looks fabulous on you!

  28. kiwikiwidragon says:

    IMO, I think a tad bit of black or charcoal eyeliner with the Prince Noir would make it a more transitional for me. It makes your eyes look naked being so bold. Not a huge amount just a smidge to define.

  29. Kim says:

    Rebel looks really good on you but I think it would be a little too red for me (isn’t everything?). ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I’d also scare the dead with Prince Noir but you’re wearing it well! I noticed the progression of Lloyd in your pics: pretty straight; a slight ruffle; OK, Lloyd, all to the side. Very versatile!

  30. Larie says:

    These look lovely on you, Karen, but I think this is finally one collection I can completely pass on.

  31. Melody says:

    Hmmm. I can’t decide if I want Prince Noir. It’s lovely but I’m afraid it’ll end up in my “going out lips” pile, which doesn’t get used enough. How is the dryness compared to other MAC mattes?

  32. Melissa says:

    That Secret Lover color looks pretty and fresh. I like that one!

  33. Lisa S. says:

    Ooooo Prince Noir reminds me of the late 90’s when I wore really dark brownish red lipstick. No lip liner though! :0) Come to think of it I wore a really cool dark grayish mauve lipstick in the 80’s too. Cant think of the name of it, but I think it was Revlon and it was kinda like MAC Riveting lipstick only darker.

  34. Vesna says:

    It’s so interesting how the same lipstick can looks so different on different skintones ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have Rebel too and I love it! On me it looks more red/fuchsia ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that color! <3

  35. GThang says:

    Not a fan of the Prince Noir on you — it’s too overpowering and you have natural beauty that doesn’t need all that dark color. I do love the other 3 on you though they’re very pretty

  36. Meaghan says:

    A perfect dupe for Prince Noir would be Dark Cherry by Revlon!
    I really like Secret Lover & Peachstock. They’re both really pretty nude-y colors.

  37. Mandy says:

    I love Prince Noir! It’s so vampy, I love it. But it totally takes me back to the 90s.

  38. amy says:

    Peachstock and Prince Noir is lovely. I love that Prince Noir looks very vampy and dark.

  39. The lipsticks look so different on you than Temptalia. You revived my interest in peachstock!

  40. sugarBear says:

    You look beautiful in all of these lipsticks! but my most favorite one on you is Peachstock, its the perfect nude color, looks so perfect and natural on you ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. chris says:

    thats it i’m buyin rebel.. i am nc30, though, so i hope it looks a fraction as nice on me as it does on you! i think prince noir looks really good on you, too!
