Fall Favorites: Beauty (Part 1) - MACnificent Me - MAC

Are you all ready for my next installment of Fall Favorites?!  I know many of you beauty lovers out there have noticed my lack of MAC coverage lately.  No, I have not fallen out of love with lovely MAC Cosmetics.  I've simply gotten behind.  Whoopsie!  They come out with so many great products and collections, its hard to report on them all sometimes.  But, I am here to jump right back into their "MACnificent" world with one of their newest collections, "MACnificent Me."

"Well Behaved," "Simply Swinging," & "Nice Composure"
I love this collection because there is a little bit of everything.  You'll find bold, bright colors,  feminine, pale pinks, mod neutrals, and even smokey greys. The eye shadow in "Well Behaved" is the perfect example of bold.  A gorgeous reddish, orange color, this shadow is made to stand out.  It's color also makes it perfect for those who like to get festive for fall.  Of course, the product itself is highly pigmented and has a silky smooth consistency.  Staying power is MAC's game, and this eye shadow is no exception.  Expect the color to stay vibrant and crease free throughout the day.

"Self Aware"
The neutral seen in the amplified creme lipstick "Self Aware" is the perfect balance to the bold vibe achieved with "Well Behaved."  Nude in color, this lipstick is creamy and subtly modern.  Again, the MAC quality standards are high so you will find this lipstick goes on smoothly and stays put.

Perhaps one of my favorite products overall is the PatentPolish Lip Pencil.  You will find a feminine touch with the shade "Pleasure's All Mine."   It is described as a "pale warm nude" but also passes for a pale pink.  This is a perfect shade for adding a soft touch to an otherwise seductive look.

And where will you find seduction in this collection?  With the Pro Longwear paint pot in "Nice Composure," of course.  This creme shadow is a very, very cool grey; which is absolutely perfect for this season since grey is one of the biggest trends right now.  It's also a great product to use to achieve a mess free, smooth, smokey eye.

"Pleasure's All Mine"
So let's see.  We have lips... we have eyes... what are we missing?  Nails! "Simply Swinging" is this beautifully grey lilac shade that is modern, trendy, and still ladylike.  The color is perfect for those wanting more than just the standard pink or red nail, but still wanting a softer look. And for those who tend to stay away from the darker nail colors that appear with the cooler seasons?  This color is for you.  It's a great way to update your color for the season without having to opt for a dark red or blue.

And now you see why this collection is named "MACnificent Me."  While staying cohesive as a collection, it provides something for everyone and every look. Truly allowing you to customize your look to fit the one and only you!

  2. Really amazing shades to try on. I am definitely gonna add them in my pallete as I think, a cool lipstick shade and a suitable skin cream are sufficient to make my pallete complete. Thanks for sharing such an amazing post.

  3. I loved these beauty products. Would like to include in my makeup kit. I loved the lipstick shade the most. Also, I was wondering that if I could buy the same in pink color.
