Big MAC Attack

No, not the burger (although now that you mention it, a big mac does sound kind of tasty right now…hmm…), the makeup! MAC has produced its usual million and one holiday collections, and they aren’t done yet. I have found myself strangely unexcited for the barrage of beauty, though. Maybe I’m just not all the way cured of my cold yet. I suspect some of these shades are ones you like more in person? The promo images don’t seem to wow me. I do already have Pervette lipstick though, and it’s a pretty if not terribly exciting shade.

I bet a lot of you are happy to see the re-release of Ever So Rich cremesheen glass. That lipgloss caused quite a furor when Cremeteam was released (along with my beloved Lavender Whip lipstick). The gloss, though, let me tell you, is not worth clamoring for. Really. It’s a strict “nice to have” only, because it really doesn’t do anything for you unless you wear it over Lavender Whip, which is a color few gals can successfully pull off. Of the main color collection the only thing that really catches my eye at all is this cherry-pink lipstick, Utter Fun.

MAC’s holiday offerings also include a collection of mineralized eyeshadow duos. I always feel so torn about these darn things. They look really awesome. I love “baked goods” (baked cosmetics!) generally, but these tend to lack color payoff and be difficult to work with due to shimmer fallout. I haven’t tried out these particular ones yet, but I’m not jumping outta my chair to go do so. The 2 mineral blushes look pretty, although I worry they are colors I’ve already gotten from other MAC mineralize blushes. Superdupernatural is right up my proverbial alley, though, if I were to pick one.


So far, so “meh”. Maybe all I need is a good slap upside the head to remind me how much I love me some limited edition MAC, but to me this collection just doesn’t light my fire. However, I am definitely excited for the November collection Mischief Makers. That one has more things that catch my interest.
