MAC MAC Me Over - Xee and Sharon

Xee and Sharon is the last part of the MAC Me Over collection, this one is another great fall collection and will have huge appeal based on the trends of the season.  Xee and Sharon is another collection that is focused the heaviest on eye makeup shades and the much-loved Shadesticks make one of their first reappearances since the Spring of 2009's Sugarsweet collection.  The Shadesticks were actually the first major reason that I got very excited for this collection since I haven't been super impressed with many of MAC's recent collections.  I missed out on the Shadesticks in the first round and I am so happy that I have a second chance to get this product.

"Play it cool-toned and style savvy in smoky grays, whites, and beiges.  An assortment of lightly icy, soft and grayed out shades in Eye Shadow x 4, Shadesticks, Lipglass, and Nail Lacquer that range from elegantly edgy to super sophisticated."  Oh Shadesticks!! 

Here is the last part of the MAC Me Over collection!

Lady Gray: Eye Shadow x 4 - A quartet of intriguingly icy, fashion-forward shades perfect for the season.  Includes All Races, Tendersmoke, Lady Gray, and Hazy Gray.
- All Races - cool light taupe (Matte)
- Tendersmoke - muted silver lilac (Frost)
- Lady Gray - light frosted green-gray (Satin)
- Haze Day - mid-tone gray (Veluxe Pearl)

Shadestick - A smooth and silky, rich and creamy eye shadow delivered in a stick-style format.  Provides rich colour overlaid by soft finishes of shine.  Glides on: works as a shadow - or a liner.  Builds up coverage from sheer.
- Butternutty - frosted light neutral beige
- Heirloom - light icy pink
- Tundra - icy silver
- Cakeshop - frosted pewter
- Street Cool - midtone gray violet taupe

Lipglass - A unique lip gloss available in a wide variety of colours that can create a high gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen.  Designed to be worn on its own, over Lip Pencil or Lipstick, Tinte Lipglass is the perfect product for creating shine that lasts.  It's pigmented, very shiny, and can impart subtle or dramatic colour.  It contains Jojoba Oil to help soften and condition the lips.  Tinted Lipglass is packaged in a convenient bottle with a sponge tip applicator that provides a quick, smooth, even application.
- Wee Coquette - naked neutral pink
- Good Times - pale mauve
- Spite - muted plum-taupe beige

Nail Lacquer - Revolutionary new high gloss formula.  Three long-wearing finishes - Cream, Sheer, Frost.  Visibly different.  Provides no-streak/no-chip finish.  Contains conditioners and UV protection.  Go hi-lacquer!
- Quiet Time - beige nude
- Fatiques - army green

214 Short Shader Brush - Short, rounded, double-chiselled brush with soft, natural bristles.  Can be used with shadow to line and smudge around the lash line and very effective for densely shading lids.

I still think that the second part of the collection was my favorite even though this part contains the Shadesticks.  The Shadesticks look exactly like the offerings from Sugarsweet so I really do get a second chance at these shades.  I want the Butternutty and Cakeshop shades the most and I am so excited for these.  I would also love the have the Eye Quad, I like the lilac shades and all the grays in it.  Wee Coquette and Good Times Lipglasses are the last two pieces that I would like to own from this collection, I can skip out on the rest of the Lipglass shades and all the Nail Lacquers.

Overall, this collection is one of the best choices this fall.  It is very well rounded and offers some many products and shades that everyone will find something that will mkae them happy.
