MAC Bronze Collection Swatches

MAC Bronze Collection released earlier this month at Ulta, and a lot of it sold out (go figure!), but the collection is supposed to launch on MAC’s website on June 1st, so here are swatches for your perusal! As a FYI, the five Foiled Eyeshadows are actually previously-released shades but with new names–which is really odd for MAC as they repromote but usually use the same name!

For reference: Sunphoria = Feminine Wiles (slightly cooler this time around), White Haute = Fairy Land, Sand Tropez = Faerie Fayre, Monaco-co = Enchanted Forest, and Tide ‘n’ Seek = Magic in Your Eyes. They came out in 2015. The just-released version in 2020 felt marginally creamier with slightly smoother shimmer, but keep in mind, the originals are five years old at this point (so there could be minor changes in texture over time, like being a little drier!).

Because I missed out on Fairy Fayre last time around, I may get Sand Tropez. What I’m seriously drawn to is some of the lip products! Would Rather Lounge Lipglass looks AMAZING! So do Wham! and Set To Sizzle lipsticks.

I have Set to sizzle and on me I did not have so much color. Only a bit shimmer, very dissapointing. So if possible try it out before buying.

Many moons ago Mac came out with a summer collection called “Temperature Rising” which had a lipglass called “Underdressed.” I LOVED that lipglass and always wished I had stocked up. “Summer Chromance” kinda reminds me of it. Would be interested Christine in knowing how similar they are. If they are really closed, I’m buying 10 LOL

Some of those foiled shadows would make for excellent one-and-done looks. I could easily pull off (and love!) Monaco-co or White Haute as stand alone color on my lids.

IF I can get one or the other, I will. Otherwise, no stress. 🙂

The Radiant Matte Bronzing Powder in Beige-ing Beauty looks promising, but given how many bronzers I already have, plus the fact there’s no end in sight for mandatory face masks, I’m going to have to give it some more thought… The eyeshadows all look good, but I would imagine they’ll be the first to go, so I can’t really be bothered…

So do I.
If they become available here, I might get them, along with Cote d’Amour. Unless I have a lot of dupes, of course.

I’m liking how this collection looks a lot more than I thought I would. There’s a lot of interesting textures and shimmers that I didn’t expect, it’s not just basic summer bronze-y shades.

Isn’t there two face glaze shades missing?
“Like it lilac that” and “Magic hour”? Was curious to see the swatches for magic hour! 🙂

Well bummer, I missed some of the shadows on ulta so I was going to get them from Mac direct, but the collection looks to already be on their site and all the shadows are already sold out!

Well what in the craziness! I had checked again this morning and all colors showed sold out lol but now I see 3 – white haute is sold out now again? Lol) too. Thank you for the heads up, Christine!

Hey Mandy,

I just looked on MAC’s site–US for reference–and four of the five are in stock. Monaco-co is out!
