Today I'm going to share with you a very fun MAC haul. I'm sure by now you've seen the new collection by MAC called Alluring Aquatic. This collection was released in stores last week and has an ocean fantasy-type theme.
As you can see the most appealing thing about this collection is the packaging. It is an absolutely gorgeous teal color that looks wet with little raised droplets.
This collection was expected to sell out super quick so I was actually surprised that I was able to get my hands on anything in this collection. I purchased 2 lipsticks, a gloss, an eye shadow, and a blush.
I got the lipsticks Goddess of the Sea and Mystical and they are both the creamshean formulation. Goddess of the Sea is violet and Mystical is a rosy mauve. Both lipsticks are super creamy and pigmented. Goddess of the Sea is a very bold color but can be toned down with the right gloss. Mystical is almost a nude on me which I love. The lipsticks in this collection are $17.50.

The lipglass I got is Seducing Sound. This is a nice bronze and looks gorgeous over Mystical. It has the typical sticky formula you can expect from a MAC Lipglass. The glosses in this collection are $16.50.
I also purchased an eye shadow and a blush, both of which are the extra dimension liquid-powder formula. The eye shadow is $19.50 and the blush is $27.50.
The eye shadow is Legendary Lure which is a very dark metallic almost olive green/black color. The blush is Seduced at Sea which is a nice peach with a sheen.
Here are a few other random things I purchased:
If you watch Youtube beauty videos you'll have heard of the MAC 217 blending brush. This brush is not cheap at $24 but I've had my eye on it forever so I decided to just try it. I purchased the MAC foundation pump because I heard that these fit with Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation bottles. I also purchased Fix+ which I've never tried before.
I love everything I bought in the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection! Though, I will probably return the eye shadow because once I got home I saw that I have quite a few shadows that are very similar to it.
How about you...have you bought anything in this collection??
- Maybe you noticed my lack of posts last week. I had gone to LA for vacation and then to San Diego for a conference for my "real job". I'm back to blogging full force this week though!
- I'm excited to be getting ready for my 2nd giveaway. Stay tuned!
