Review & Swatches: MAC Me Over (Part I) Eye Shadows

MAC Me Over Eye Shadows

Limited Edition
Release Date: August 25, 2011
Availability: MAC online & MAC stores

This review covers MAC’s 5 MAC Me Over eye shadows.

  • Creamy Bisque (frost): Mid-tone ivory with pearlized pigments (Limited Edition)
  • Moleskin (matte): Nude brown (Limited Edition)
  • Outre (matte): Mid-tone mustard (Limited Edition)
  • Mythical (veluxe pearl): Frosty copper red (Limited Edition)
  • Carbonized (veluxe pearl): Frosty dark brown (Limited Edition)

Packaging: 9/10

These shadows come in standard MAC packaging. The compacts are plastic and come with snap-shut, flip-up tops.

Quality: 9/10

There is a mix of matte and frosty finishes, but all of the colors are neutral and are suitable for a wide range of skin tones.

The two matte formulas–Moleskin and Outre–have surprisingly decent pigmentation. MAC’s matte formulas are usually disappointing. Creamy Bisque is a good, solid highlight color. Moleskin is a perfect crease color. Mythical is a red-toned, frosty brown that could be used for a smoky eye. Carbonized is a frosty, darker brown good for everyday wear or a smoky eye.

I think the most difficult color to wear will be Outre because, while it is also a brown, neutral color, it leans strongly yellow. It may suit warm skin tones, but I don’t think it would work well with pale, cool skin tones.

Ease of Use: 9.25/10

These colors apply fairly smoothly. Use 2 or more layers to intensify the color.

Price: 8.75/10

These are the same size (1.5 g) as regular MAC shadows. You may notice the slight price increase from $14.50, which was the previous price.

Final Grade


Toss if: you want super-intense colors
Try if: you want a good range of neutral colors
Buy if: you want a mix of matte and frosty neutral shades, good for everyday wear

    Creamy Bisque and Moleskin look great! I’m not a fan of mustardy warm shadows or reddish/pink shadows, so Outre and Mythical are no go for me.
    Since we are about NC20s in MAC, does that mean we’re warm or cool? (although it seems like NW and NC are for warm and cool, I thought someone said MAC has it backwards?) Do you like Outre on yourself?
