MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection for Summer 2014

Eyes take on a subtle radiance in tarnished olive, seafoam and darkened plum Extra Dimension Eye Shadow, lined with the pearlized black of Pearlglide Intense Eye Liner. Luminous Extra Dimension Blush gives cheeks a goddess glow and nails glisten in aquatic chrome. Lipstick, Lipglass and Lip Pencil feature dark, mystical violets and ice-cold pearlized nudes. Limited edition teal packaging, elegantly accented with sheer water droplets, leaves you totally seduced by the sea.

Bronzing primers and powders set summer skin refreshingly aglow, as Extra Dimension Bronzer washes over the face with a subtle gleam and Bronzing Powder sculpts and highlights in gentle pearlized shades with a touch of shimmer. Limited-edition compacts in aquatic teal are elegantly accented with sheer water droplets.

I’m actually really excited for the packaging in this collection! I’m thinking of buying a couple of the lipsticks.

I think the packaging might be One of the main reasons why consumers will buy this. It’s very creative and innovative. I hope the water drops isn’t photoshopped because that looks so cool.

Oh yeah, this is swimmingly delightful! Make an ethereal water theme and center it around teal packaging…. Happy Birthday! I love this & can’t wait for your reviews!

Noooo, MAC, you couldn’t wait until after my birthday so I could be all HECK YEAH NO SPENDING BAN! … well, i didn’t say spending ban on my freelance MUA kit….

JUST.
THE PACKAGING.
GIMME.

Originally I was extremely excited about this collection but the more swatches I see the more I think they just concentrated on the (admittedly gorgeous) packaging and not so much on the product. Some of it feels like MAC just knows we’ll buy up anything in limited edition packaging.

And sadly…I will be proving this as true because I HAVE TO HAVE THIS PACKAGING. Honestly I’m not that excited about the color story, especially the lipstick. But I’ll be buying Enchanted One because I don’t have a lot of nudes and it does look quite pretty and Mystic because…I don’t like only having 1 of something lol. I’m not generally a fan of such subdued shades. But those water drops….gotta’ have it. I guess it’s a blessing I’m keeping this haul short because the Osbourne collection is going to be murder on my bank account.

I know how you feel about the cynicism that creeps in sometimes with MAC stuff. I’m trying to,avoid it because of how horribly they overcharge here ($56 for a lipstick), but that packaging is honestly kryptonite to me! I love fake water droplets and the colour teal, and purple lipsticks. *sigh*

I haven’t bought any mac in 15 years…

This collection is already released here in Holland! Bought Enchanted One, Peachstock and Sea Worship. The bronzer were waaaay too shimmery for me and the other lipsticks just weren’t my taste. But I do love the packaging, the drops are such a funny detail.

Wow, the mac summer collections are bucking tradition this year! From the Lorde collab with the deep purple lip to the super pale promotional image for this campaign!
They are finally catching up to a trend I’ve been trying to start for years–vampy lips all year round!
Besides that though, and given that the packaging is beautiful, these lipstick shades look really dated, like 90s mauve/brown shades.

I hope the eyeshadows and blushes are good! Have to get something from this collection because of the gorgeous packaging!

I am so looking forward to this collection. I think it’s a nice take on summer shades; colorful but not loud. Very aquatic, indeed!

I’m a bit disappointed that most of these are warm toned. When I think of the water, I think of more cooler tones. Where is the green and blue? This is totally baffling to me

I think this is the first collection of the year that I will actively look to purchase. Can’t wait to see the purple lipstick! The blushes and eye shadows look pretty too!

It really hate it that no one at MAC is creative enough to invent ‘limited edition colors’ for new collections. They take permanent colors and put new names on them or take permanent colors, stick em in a palette and call it a new quad. I don’t want anything permanent at MAC in a new collection. That’s a waste of money!

This was released in the UK on April 22nd, and no one seemed to know anything about it. No swatches were available so we were all buying blind. MAC handled the released horribly – I’m signed up to their email newsletter and didn’t even get the email about this collection until FIVE days after release. Four of the lipsticks had been sold out and the fifth hadn’t been released. Shockingly poor promotion.

Luckily I had found out about it on the 24th by pure coincidence while browsing the site. I decided to buy the Mystical lipstick and Refined Golden Bronzing Powder (which I’d meant to buy at some point anyway). Let me tell you ladies, the packaging is phenomenal. If you’re thinking about getting something, but might be in two minds, let that sway you 🙂

I know! It was literally by chance that I was looking at the Patentpolish Pencils that day after the email advertising them, that I found this collection released that day! I’m LOVING my Mystical lipstick, and the Sea Me, Hear Me blush. I needed a new bronzer so went back and that’s on it’s way! X

I love this collection, I would just need to see if it would match my skin tone. I love the advertising though. I’m a sucker for anything blue or sea-like. 🙂

So far I am only liking two items from this collection, Mystical & Goddess of the Sea Lipstick, Ugh why didn’t they repromote Whisper of Gilt & the packaging looks very nice, but these colors don’t scream summer, come on MAC step the color game up!!

Gotta love the turquoise metallic packaging! Also the wearable makeup colors. Now will MAC make enough so it doesn’t sell out on the first day?

Hey, I’m not smitten by any of the colors, but the packaging wows everyone! Does anyone know if the BRUSHES also feature droplets? There are no pix of the brushes. That I could justify.

Maybe this makes me sound old… But didn’t Mac have a summer collection in similar sea green turquoise packaging years ago?

When Did the Canadian prices become so crazy?! =|
with my somewhat narrowed down list I’m still expecting to spend $239 without taxes on this collection ='(

I love the packaging and the lip colors look great for work. i have to see the eyeshadows in person before I will judge them though.

I’m excited about the extra dimension bronzers. I haven’t heard a lot of people express interest in those-am I missing something, because they look beautiful!

Hi Christine, I would really appreciate if you could tell me the EXACT time the collection goes live.. The reason I ask is that since I am in different time zone (country), I checked a little late, probably an hour or two late and the product which I REALLY wanted to buy went OOS.. I am dying to get my hands on these and I dont want to miss again… Thanks xoxo

Hi Preeti,

I do not have information regarding the exact time it launches – I may or may not be awake when it does go up – collections launch all over the place; 3AM PST, 10AM, 5PM…

And Mystical the only shade I wanted sold out in under 6 minutes – from the time I put it in my bag to the time I went to check out with the eyeshadow I had picked! Gah!
