MAC Simpsons Haul & First Impressions

The MAC Simpsons collection is finally here! In case you’ve been living under a rock the colorful limited edition collection released online at MAC and Nordstrom a few days ago. Surprisingly, everything is still in stock! Including the beautiful MAC online exclusive, Sideshow You blush.

The packaging didn’t really wow me when I first saw the pictures. I thought it looked cheap, clunky and a little kitschy but it’s actually kinda cute in person. Pictures honestly don’t do it any justice! The blush features a shiny black plastic design with a half picture of Marge serving some serious face. It also has a mirror inside so it doubles as a cute compact for on the go, too.

I was pretty intrigued with the lipglasses at first but once the swatches came out I was hooked on Sideshow You. It’s a light, warm pinky coral with a satin finish and Marge’s face embossed on the powder. Just in case you were wondering the design does seem to go all the way through the pan. It didn’t budge once when I swatched it or tried it on.

I’ll have to admit that I was really nervous when I first swatched Sideshow You. I didn’t think it would be a good fit for my skin tone at all because it looked so light. But once I tried it on I fell in love! It’ll make a great everyday blush for WOC. It’s a very soft shade so it’s almost impossible to overdo yet it’s still pigmented enough to give a nice wash of color. I think a variety of complexions will get good use out of Sideshow You!

Although Sideshow You is a regular ol’ blush it’s twice the size of your average MAC blush. I thought it contained more product too but it actually has the same amount (0.21 oz). I still think it’s worth the extra $2 though because of the cool packaging and mirror. Overall, I’m really digging Sideshow You! If you haven’t had a chance to order yours I highly recommend heading over to MAC to grab one before it’s all gone! It’s an online exclusive (remember?) so you won’t be able to pick one up at your local MAC store or counter this Thursday. Happy hauling!
