I've been a fan of The Simpsons for years and when I saw that MAC were collaborating with The Simpsons, I was a little surprised. I've never thought that The Simpsons would have a makeup collection, but, if it were to be any company it's great that it was MAC! Because can you imagine YSL doing it? Nhew!
I only bought one thing from the collection, I have enough blushes etc, so went for something I rarely buy. Surprisingly though, there were no lipsticks in the collection?!
Can we just...the packaging. I love the look of the outer packaging, the boxes are bright Simpsons yellow with blue insides. The name of the product is on the end of the packaging on a yellow sticker. Because this is Marge's collection, her hair is highlighted in blue on the front, and there are a while bundle of line drawings of different characters all over it!
The thing is, I do feel that with the products, MAC really missed a trick. This is the company that brought us water droplets on products, I feel like the product packaging is a little last-minute. It sucks a bit. With the lipsticks (if they'd done some!) they could have made the lids 3D styled like Marge's hair, I mean SERIOUSLY they had so many creative venues to go down. I feel like they could have done better with the packaging, it's a bit of a let-down.
None the less, I got the colour Grand Pumpkin. Its something I'd usually never go for but I think it's pretty awesome! There were a couple of more 'out there' colours, like this one and Nacho Cheese Explosion, which is a dubious greeny yellow.
I chose Grand Pumpkin particularly because of the name, and this time of year. Also I LOVE the Grand Pumpkin Treehouse of Horror episodes, so it was naturally what I was drawn to.

It's a gorgeous creamy pumpkin colour, it's definitely not a peach or nude it's an orange. It's much more of a 'delicate' orange than a bright, loud orange which I think makes it more wearable. It's ver glossy and from what I can tell, like most MAC Lipglasses, it's slightly sticky.
I really like this lipgloss and can't wait to try it out over a variety of lipsticks and liners!
