MAC Me Over Haul + Dupes + Swatches= AWSOME!

Hey Guys and Dolls! So I jumped the gun and uploaded the video for this post before writing it out, and now I’m sitting here with bleach on my head…not well planned out. Here’s some awesome product pictures, swatches, and dupes!

Curvaceous LipGlass, Oh Oh Oh Luster Lipstick

Curvaceous Milky Dusty pink. It slightly settles into lines but in person it’s not even noticeable. I’ve seen this look good on NC15-NW45 skintones!

Oh Oh Oh Lipstick Sheer Berry/Plum with golden/Copper shimmer. Luster lipsticks are thin in texture, and are typically pretty sheer. They are also pretty moisturizing feeling and the sheerness makes them very attractive. This is like a little-sister to MAC’s “O” lipstick in the regular line.

Stunner Blush and Avenue Fluidline

Stunner is a light coral-pink thinking blue thoughts. It warm enough to work on many skintones, but it might be too light for very deep tones. I’d consider it Mocha and Fleur Power’s light-skinned baby.

Avenue is a very dark brown with lots of small glitter- more glitter than Blitz and Glitz Fluidline from the regular line.

 

Clockwise from the top: Outre, Mythical, Carbonized, Creamy Bisque, and Moleskin

From L-R Creamy Bisque, Moleskin, Outre, Mythical, Satin Taupe, Carbonized

Creamy Bisque is a soft off-white Frost eyeshadow with a almost pink sheen. It’s not very intense which is why is makes a fantastic highlight color for beauty makeup. It’s the Piner version of MAC’s Shroom eyeshadow in the regular line.

Moleskin is a must-have light to medium matte brown. It’s the just-right balance of gray, pink and yellow tinted tan and though you many use it different ways, it can work for anyone, as a lid color, crease color or highlight. It’s very similar to Wedge Eyeshadow from Mac’s regular line, but Moleskin has a better texture and color payoff, and is just a hair pinker.

Outre is a mustard-caramel, which sounds really nasty, but as an eyeshadow color it’s fabulous. To my eye this color is identical to the mustard-caramel in the Double Feature 4 duo (Side by side swatch below). This color is great as a crease or transitional color on people with a golden or olive skintones, though it can also work for deeper skintones. The closest thing in the regular line is Soba, though Soba is much browner, and has a slight shimmer.

Mythical is a metallic pink-copper,a nd as far as I’m concerned is a “better-than” dupe for MAC’s Mythology from the regular line.

Satin Taupe is a metallic silver brown taupe. It’s incredibly versatile and works on virtually every skin-tone though the effect changes (on me it’s very brown, but on a deeper skintone it looks a bit more silver. MAC Repromotes this thing like crazy, and while that’s a bit annoying, I don’t mind as long as it’s not a  quad where I’d want it but I already have it.

Carbonized is a shimmery chocolate black-brown. in the pan and swatched is seems to be a metallic warm chocolate brown but in use it tends to loose some of the shimmer and shifts to a cooler grey-brown. Incredibly usefula dn easy to blend.  there are no direct dupes, but if you want a shimmery warm brown in the regular line try Mulch.

Comparisons:

Wedge, Moleskin

      It’s showing up fine for me (I checked on 3 different browsers) so I guess it was just a glitch. Please let me know if it’s still screwy :)

        All good now. Thanks for your time and effort showing the comparisons. I think I’ll be picking up Ohohoh and Outre. I like Moleskin but maybe a bit similar to Kid which I already have and love.
