I know it has been QUITE AWHILE since my last post and I am so sorry about that but here are pictures on my MAC haul.

 

I lurve every thang about it!

First off, I didnt get the bronzers and blushes since I already have a few blushes I rarely use and a bronzer that I swatch at home lol. I’m not that very good when it comes to makeup such as those items but I cannot live without eye shadow, lippies, and mascara!

Can we at least agree that the packaging of MACs new limited edition collection Alluring Aquatic is everything!! One of the many reasons why I hoped on it.

Here is the packaging up close and personal. All in natural lighting. :]

The 3D water drop effect is just… breathtaking!

This is how MACs Extra Dimension line looks like.

The wave is just perfect for this underwater, kinda mermaid, Greek Mythology theme.

Now, onto the swatches!

From Top to Bottom:

Clear Water (Sparkly goodness!)
Mystical
Goddess of the Sea 
Covergirl Sultry 200 (comparing purpose)
Enchanted One (I thought this was like Covergirl Sultry but it’s much lighter. Super pretty with Clear Water)

***I have also purchased Head in the Clouds from MACs Playland collection. These swatches are for folks wondering if it’s the same as RiRi Viva Glam.***

Head in the Clouds (comparing purpose)
RiRi Viva Glam (RVG is so obviously a darker red than HITC. HITC has gold specks)

 

The MAC Alluring Aquatic lippies are super opaque and non drying. Mystical gives you that “your natural pigmented lips but better” look. Goddess of the Sea is thee perfect purple and Enchanted One is a gorgeous nude! I can honestly wear that nude better that Covergirl Sultry 200.

From Top to Bottom:

Lorelai (a lovely soft pink. Compared to Stila Kitten it is a deeper pink)

Fathom’s Deep (Certain light it’s Navy Blue and sometimes it appears purple)

Sea Worship (Antique olive gold)

The MAC Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimensional eyeshadows were super buttery smooth and very high in pigment although out of the three I’ve purchase, Fathoms Deep is more pigmented. FD was only swatched once; Sea Worship and Lorelai twice.

Now I hope you’re not still wondering if you should get this collection. Okay… I get it because it’s super expensive. The eyeshadows alone were $19.50 each!! Gag city. I’m just saying if you can afford it then run, do not walk, to the nearest MAC, Nordstrom, Belk and get you a couple please! You will not regret it. I on the other hand already regretting on not getting Siren Song and Pet Me Please.  Remember, these are LIMITED EDITION (although MAC still has it on the site) so don’t sleep!
