Guest Review : Lip Colours From MAC’s MAC Me Over Collection


MAC’s Fall/Winter 2011 MAC Me Over Collection was quite a big collection divided into 3 parts with lip colours being generally dark and vampish. There were some nude tones as well and these ones are good for toning down the darker shades. Fatin tries out 5 of the lip colours from the collection.

Remember the MAC Me Over collection which was launched for Fall/Winter 2011. Well I have a few of the lipsticks and lipglasses from that collection in case you guys were wondering how some of the shades would look like on a medium skin-toned chick. I have with me on the one hand an extreme bright and intensely dark shade and on the other hand some really nude ones. Some crazy dramatic shades on me. Sounds fun already! As with all MAC lippies, expect the vanilla scent.

The Lipsticks

Runaway Red is a blue base medium red lipstick with a hint of fuschia if your eyes can catch it in the photo. The colour is intense even with one layer but with two layer it’s pretty much opaque. Its satin finish gives it that bit of creamy look.

Prince Noir is a deep burgundy with red undertones. What can I say, it’s dark. I probably wouldn’t wear this ever so often, perhaps for a statement lip. That said, it can be toned down with some gloss. This is a matte finish.


Secret Lover more along the lines of barely there with loads of fine gold shimmer. I suppose the lustre finish says it all. Great to mix and tone down brighter or darker shades.

The Lipglasses


Good Times is a light pink mauve. It appears a creamy nude pink on my lips and despite applying two layers, does not appear to cover my lip colour. Still clearly visible.

Illicit is a light peach beige with micro shimmer. It appears a creamy nude beige on my lips and just as Good Times, despite applying two layers, does not cover my lip colour. I suppose I could use this if I’m going for a nude look. Otherwise i’ll be mixing and toning down with this one. I found this one to settle a lot quicker on my lips compared to Good Times.
