MAC To the Beach Collection
MAC Lipglasses: Flurry of Fun, Easy Lounger, Splashing

MAC To the Beach Collection — Lipglass Reviews, Photos, Swatches

MAC’s To the Beach Collection features four limited edition lipsticks from champagne-gold to deep berry, with each retailing for $14.

  • Flurry of Fun is a sheer, muted tangerine peach with iridescent teal shimmer–yes, teal.  The shimmer in this reminds me of Reflects Transparent Teal, which is kind of cool.
  • Easy Lounger is an ultra sheer light baby pink with silvered shimmer.  The shimmer in this gloss feels different than the average lipglass, to be honest.  It seems incredibly fine and brilliant.  The shade itself doesn’t do much on lips but add a glossy, shimmering look with no real color change.  It’d be nice over a darker lipstick, though.
  • Splashing is a medium pink with yellow undertones and soft champagne shimmer.  It’s pretty pigmented as far as lipglosses go, and it doesn’t emphasize lines too badly, though the milkiness of the gloss does seem to settle there.

See more photos & swatches!

  1. Tiffany

    definitely want. :)

  2. Lisa

    It’s very pretty, but too sheer. There are so many other shades that give better color payoff.

  3. spitting image of virgin kiss from rose romance if you ask me!

  4. Michelle

    I love sheer colors for summer — and this would look so pretty over a lipstick. I need all of the lipglasses from this collection!

  5. I think this looks great! Super easy to wear but maybe a little too much of a silver frost to it. I prefer golden shimmer on the lips.

  6. Nikki

    Is this similar to Culture Clash?

  7. Carrie

    Lovely. I like the sparkle. I’m sure it would look pretty over so many lipstick shades.

  8. Hannah

    Christine I just want to say that you are AMAZING for getting the reviews for this collection up so quickly! Seriously, the best beauty blogger, not competition. Having access to swatches is so useful for a college student far, far away from a MAC store who has no option but to order LE things that will probably sell out online!

    • Happy to help, Hannah!

      What’s on your list so far?

      • Hannah

        Marine life, definitely (which I was not expecting to like/need)… and after seeing the completed lipglass review I think I’ll have to pick up Flurry of Fun which seems quite unique and a fun shade for summer!

  9. Maria

    It’s gorgeous, I want it. Ok, so now one e/s, thrills, and easy lounger. I am such a sucker for MAC lipglosses, it’s ridiculous. I’ll probably wind up getting the other two.

  10. Christina

    I wanted this lipglass originally, but now that I see a swatch of it I’m not too crazy about it. I expected something completely different, it doesn’t have much of a “wow” factor.

  11. Evelyn

    I have to laugh at myself, I simply cannot forgo a sparkly lip gloss. I must have twinkly lips! :)

  12. darcey

    Can you do with this collection what what you did with just add colour…put up dupes and “skip this if you already have”? That was the most helpful thing I have ever seen b/c I’m so drawn to certain colors and shades that I buy 8 of the same thing feels.

  13. lauraaaaaaaa

    no color :( ill pass

  14. Sarah

    I’m going to go broke from this collection! And I’m going to love every second of it!

  15. While pretty, I think I’ll skip Easy Lounger for now.

  16. Sarah

    Hi Cristine :o) Thank you so much for keeping us updated. I live over an hr away from the nearest mac counter and 2.5+ hrs from the nearest mac store, so your swatches help me a lot. especially when I have to order online… I was just wondering if I get hipness blush do I need the highlight powder as well, or vice versa. How close/similar are they in color? Or what do yyou think would suit me best, Im an nw20. Thank you so much :o)

    • I think you may like Hipness more as NW20, but either would work. It’s so, so hard for me not to tell you to just grab the highlight powder knowing it’s going to be pretty hard-to-find soon enough.

  17. Paloma

    I wish both the gloss AND the lipstick had more color :( The lipstick I can barely see…

  18. Thanks for the swatch. I’m probably not going to get this one. I have way too many glosses as it is!

    I really like your eyeliner in this picture, what did you use?

  19. Diana B

    It’s nice but it looks like many other glosses that I have so I will pass.

  20. too sheer for my taste =(

  21. Sparkleandsmile16

    I’m definitely passing on this one. I don’t need to spend that much for no color and glitter. I can get that at a drugstore easily. :(

    Hopefully I’ll like the other ones!

  22. Brittany

    What would be some differences between this and MAC HK’s She Loves Candy l/g besides that S.L.C had gold shimmer?

  23. Ashley

    Yay! I’m so glad you were able to get swatches of the other lipsticks and lipglasses! I was trying to wait patiently 😉 I think I’m definitely going to be grabbing Splashing and Lazy Day! Funbathing is really incredibly gorgeous in my opinion, but I don’t think I would get enough use out of a darker color. Although, it will be hard to pass up!

    • Yes, $600 later and here it all is, LOL! :) Too bad UPS delivered so late today, otherwise I would have had them up much earlier — sorry about that!

      • Ashley

        No need to be sorry Christine! You are doing all of us a HUGE favor. And holy smokes, that’s quite the expensive haul, I hope you at least liked some of the stuff you managed to get!

  24. Hayley

    Do you think Flurry of Fun will show up on pigmented lips?
    And is the collection still due out on the 27th?

  25. Must get Flurry of Fun!

  26. Vickie

    hey christine how would you say that Flurry of Fun compares to Kumquat and Gold Dust fromt the Spring Colour Forecast?

  27. Wendy

    I’m kind of put off by the Flurry of Fun teal shimmers, but other than that it looks really pretty. :)
    Do you think Splashing would look nice on NC35, Christine?

  28. NEED Splashing – although it reminds me a lot of Ample Pink Plushglass on you. <3

  29. Alyssa

    Flurry of Fun looks a bit like Kumquat. I like Splashing, it looks like strawberry milk… he.

  30. Flurry of Fun looks like… Um… Fun? Ha! I like it! I have to see it though, because I wouldn’t buy it if I could make it myself – I notice that MOST of my Lipglasses are either the oddball colors or REALLY DARK :)

  31. Sarah M

    Flurry of Fun is awesome over Lollipop Loving lipstick. I wore it yesterday and got sooo so so many compliments! :-)

  32. stephanie

    is flurry of fun like nice to be nice from MAC HK?

  33. shuz4ever

    Splashing looks pretty…dang, just when i thought i wasn’t going to get another l/g…ugh

  34. starr

    splashing looks like a warmer version of english accents to me how do you think they compare? :) i will be picking up two i think :D!

  35. Cherie

    So after this I think I will pass on the lot of them. Nothing really struck me.

    Thanks for the swatches!! :)

  36. jaspreet

    i will definitely want means i want it

  37. Easy Lounger is pretty!

  38. Jywoi

    Thank you so much for the swatches, it’s so helpful, I don’t buy any Mac products until I read your review^^

    Btw, I have English Accents Lipglass, is Splashing anywhere similar to it? I like Splashing but can I skip it if I have Eng Acc?

    Thank you!

  39. crystal

    i love it!!! love the seahorses

  40. OMG, ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Easy Lounger, if I had to choose one! 😉

  41. Zinnia

    ohh splashing looks yummy

  42. rachael

    omg i have a bump on my nose in the same place just like that weird

  43. Shay

    ooooooo i want flurry of fun and splashing!

  44. Wendy

    dayum! the splashing looks awesome! is there a shade of permanent lipglass that looks like this?

  45. kcrystal

    After seeing these lipglasses in person, I have to say that i am most impressed by flurry of fun. The teal shimmer is definitely noticeable and the way it glistens on the lips and also gives a really neat effect when applied over lipstick. The easy lounger and splashing is a no go. Easy lounger is blah .. i can go to the drugstore and pretty much find an instant dupe and splashing is too milky and pigmented and not really pretty.
    Flurry of fun is definitely thumbs up!

  46. hi! thank you so much for these great on the lip swatches. i have been looking EVERYWHERE for them!

  47. Lily

    How much are they pigmented?

  48. jq

    hi what yellow/gold eyeshadow did u use in the last pic? Thanks :)

  49. cathy L B

    I want this gloss, hwo do I get it??
