MAC To the Beach Look: Humid, Shimmermoss, and “Sweet & Punchy”

MAC To the Beach Look: Humid, Shimmermoss, and “Sweet & Punchy”

If you’ve been collecting MAC for years, you and I both know that we own near-dupes of coming attractions, no matter how pretty the newest, shiniest thing may look. Since MAC To the Beach is out in the UK already, I thought I’d try a look using some of the products from the faux peek earlier this week. I used True Chartreuse as a base with Lucky Green eyeshadow layered over it to fake “Sweet & Punchy,” so if you have your To the Beach goodies, try using that on the lid instead :)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. With the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water), apply True Chartreuse pigment all over the lid area. Using the 239, apply Lucky Greeneyeshadow on the lower lid. Next, apply Humid eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending outwards and upwards to fade to the brow bone. With the 239, apply Shimmermoss eyeshadow into the crease directly and then blended towards the outer corner and lid. Blend Nylon eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying #7L eyeliner on the lower lash line and Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sun Rush lustre drops on the apples and upper cheekbones. Then, apply Hipness blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Thrills lipstick first, and then layer Sugar Overload superglass for a complementing lip.

MAC Superglass Collection: Review, Photos, & Swatches

Superglass is latest lipgloss creation by MAC.  My review for these is still the same and reposted with minor edits below.  They are a thick, sticky gloss loaded with both shimmer and flaky glitter particles.  They’re not for those who prefer less rather than more when it comes to shimmer, glitter, or texture.  I personally found it to be one of the thickest glosses I’ve ever worn–almost like the consistency of honey.

Sneak Peek: MAC Superglass Collection

Edit: I will have photos and swatches of the missing shades after I have a chance to purchase, swatch, photograph, etc. them tomorrow, when they launch in-stores, so I ask you to give me some time, but they will be up as soon as humanly possible, I swear :)

Ironically, after writing up my Pret-a-Papier review, some PR samples from MAC arrived, and included were four shades of the upcoming Superglass. I figured I’d give you guys a quick & dirty sneak peek of the shades and swatches, but I’ll do lip swatches tomorrow (hopefully!) along with a review (will be testing it tonight and tomorrow!).

Preliminary thoughts: very thick, quite sticky, doesn’t feel gritty, colors are quite sheer, glitter is large and more like flecks than shimmer.  Full review to come… give me time to test ’em out :)
