MAC Seaside Cream Colour Base

MAC Me Over: Seaside Cream Colour Base

MAC Seaside Cream Colour Base ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft peach rose.” It has a very warm, slightly bronzed look to it with a hint of peach–the rose is very, very subtle. I can see some using this as a highlighter, and I think it will work particularly well on darker skin tones as such. It has more of a sheen than shimmer to its finish, and it can easily be blended out for a glowy sheen on cheeks. It’s rosier than MAC Peachtwist but has a lot more shimmer than Burberry Russet.

Cream Colour Bases tend to wear poorly when worn alone, because they have a lot of slip and take awhile to dry down, especially if you use them opaque–if you sheer them out to a wash, they will cooperate better when worn alone. I recommend setting with powder if you wear it over the lid. The creaminess of the formula, however, enables it to glide on like butter and easily blended across wherever you might apply it.

MAC Seaside Cream Colour Base Review, Photos, Swatches

It could act as a shimmery bronzer on lighter skin tones as a glowy highlight on darker skin tones. It seems like a rather versatile shade, though it distinctly warm, so it will complement warmer complexions better.

    This is gorgeous! Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. :)

  3. I like the shimmer in this. It reminds me of a peachier NARS Luster.

    How would you say this compares to Hush CCB? I’ve seen people suggesting that they might be virtually identical

  5. Emily

  6. i must have this! i think i fall in love 😀

  7. Marina

    Pretty! Though I don’t think I’ll be purchasing it.

    By the way, MAC ME OVER is ONLINE at!!! It is organized into 3 collection duos, Rachel & Ian, Xee & Sharon, and Shirly & Nicole. All the stuff I really want (Offshoot l/s, Social light l/g, and Carbonized e/s) are is the Rachel and Ian section. SO PUMPED!

    …shoot…wasn’t I on a no-buy?…..

    So in case anyone was wondering, it looks like the neutral part of this collection is up on MAC’s site. Nothing is sold out yet (crossing fingers). I know a lot of people are interested in the 226, but it doesn’t seem to be up even in the preview section of the other 2 parts of the collection. Hmm…I wonder if they’re holding out on even putting up a preview of it for some reason. Or maybe it’s still very early. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

      I was looking for the 226 but I don’t see it either – and the fluidlines are available either. boo!

    I wish there was a picture with you wearing the ccb :(

  10. Laura

    Ahh, I was considering getting this from the description but I can see now that it would be far to warm for me. What would I do without your reviews?! x

  11. Carrie Ann

    Gorgeous! I think that’s the prettiest CCB I’ve seen.

  12. Cheryl

    I love that color 😉 Would there be a dupe shadow for it? I don’t think I can use the CCB as shadow :)

  13. Catelyn

    This is such a must have!! They really need a color like this in the permenent line!

    Looks just like the NARS multiple in Mustique.
