Awh man, I really like this one. I was hoping I’d hate it as much as I hated the last summer/beach collection. I’m gonna be so poor!
lol i agree me to
yup. i havent even filled up with the new summer este lauder collection christine reviewed a while back. saw it at the counter looks really nice but i dont think i can hold myself back from some of these colors.
FYI, I posted a link of swatches for MAC Surf Baby on my blog! I love the blush, its such a gorgeous coral. I just wished the gold lasted all the way through…
My thoughts exactly!!
BUT you’ll be beautiful and poor 😉
Lol j0o626. I loved your comment. I think I’ll hang on to ma money though. I only liked the coral blush and I have to see it in person to decide.
Sorry I meant CJ’s comment 🙂
I am more than excited that I am repulsed by this collection. More money i get to keep.
haha! Yeah, the neanderthal look is SO last year! The model is a bit scary. I’m over coral and aqua so I’ll be saving my cash.
Yeah, but you know that if they don’t “nab” us now, they’ll get us with something irresistible in the autumn!
Cool, I like coral, and I finally get the chance to buy strange potion;)
I’m so confused since the promo photo makes Strange Potion look darker/redder then it is from the VV collection. ^_^?
It’s a nice shade and need more love.
I personally don’t like this collection so much, but good call on them for repromoting Strange Potion! I have it and I love it!
They all look great & interesting!!!what is the difference between the 2 launch dates?
My Paradise Blush – Coral orange with champagne gold flower OMG!!!! I’m just drooling with the description …
Oh I love not being able to go to sleep until well after 3am somtimes 🙂 Pretty packaging!!! Love it!
O.EMM.GEE! It’s dusty”ooh”hunter! :”DDDD I LOVE you! You’re ridiculously talened and funny >< As is Christine! You're both such amazing inspirations to my best friends and I 🙂
I LOOOOOOVE THIS ONE !!!!!! Teal teal and teal !!!!!!
The collection is nice, but the model – gosh, she’s ugly!
I was thinking the same thing. Glad you said it and not me but I find it difficult to look at her. Maybe its the lighting on her.
I was thinking the exact same thing. She would be better looking if the lighting was adjusted so we could see her eyebrows.
I am gobsmacked by how gross this packaging design is.
that’s what i’m saying!
yeah, but I still think MAC Wonder Woman packaging was worse, I actually kind of like this one..
Yes I agree…this actually looks very lame. What’s up with a collection inspired by surfing, when hello you’re surfing. The makeup isn’t going to stay on! Nor would a surfer really be concerned with her bronzer considering she’s going to be bronzed naturally?!
This packaging looks cheap and tacky!
the packaging is such a turn off.
Agreed. Maybe I might be drawn to this collection if the packaging didn’t look like this!
Me too! It looks like they just slapped a sticker on their packaging :(. Nevertheless I still want the Ocean Dip polish if it doesn’t sell out too fast (I am not a crazed MAC fanatic so I dunno if I’ll get to it in time).
Damn, I wonder if My Paradise will be the Marine Life of 2011. I think it’s the only one I’ll get as everything else looks close to something I already own.
The packaging and promo pics are awful.
I agree, they’re not to my taste at all. I don’t get the whole “angry” model thing, she just looks PO’ed.
And I’m pretty sure that guy on the left has no pants on…
i was thinking that same exact thing!!
Interesting, I can’t wait to see swatches and review videos!!
Is the volume of product in the pigment stashes less than the holiday-size pigment jars?
OMG soooo excited for this! I thought that Quite Cute was going to be the insanely cute packaged collection of the year, but it seems that Surf Baby is going to be it instead!
Can’t wait for the info on the Blush Sticks, they seem very interesting!
The sticks are actually bronzers. The best one is Gilty Bronze. I looove this collection….
I don’t get why MAC chose this promo pic. I think the expression on the models face is scary and not flattering at all. And her pose is unnatural. At first look I immediately had to think that if she carried an axe in her hands, she would look as though she was going to murder someone!
I so agree about the promo pic! It is awful………I know Mac is more edgy when it comes to the promotional pictures but most of the time they look wierd and are a turn off for me. Maybe they should cut down on the number of collections per year and focus on better packaging and promotional advertising!!!
totally agree with you! so many collections through out the year can be easily bypassed. also, I feel like there would be so much more excitement and anticipation if the collections occurred less throughout the year & that extra money could go towards better packaging, as you said.
It definitely does not look like a fun day at the beach…
I love the fairly natural promo pic – it may not unretouched but it doesn’t look alien like either!!! also cool packaging!
i agree. it looks cheap to me even for a relaxed, beauty collection.
Cute packaging! That hibiscus flower powder is so pretty!
Sigh. I’m a sucker for LE MAC packaging, especially when they change the nail polish bottles! I’ll have to get something for my sister, too. This sort of theme is right up her alley.
Not excited about this at all, the packaging looks horrendous.
Why is MAC doing this packaging thing? Can´t they just do something beautiful? I know some people will like this but for me this doesn´t work. In my opinion it looks cheap.
it looks very cheap, not well planned or thoroughly thought through! i’m very disappointed since I have been waiting for the promo pics of summer :/
Eh…, I’m not too excited about this collection. I prefer their last summer collection!
Unless one of those pigment sets contains Jardin Aires or one of the other LE pigments from the past which I’ve really been wanting, chances are I will pass on this collection, as I did with last year’s “To the Beach”. About the only other thing that interests me is the Careblend powder but I’ll have to see that to know if it’s for me.
Sooo excited for this collection! 🙂
is there anyone else think that the girl in the promo pic looks a little scary? like zombified lol:) the collection is looking great,thanks god I have time save up for it until june.
lololol….I thought it was just me, when I first saw her it was night and I got scared, lol….her eyes look so scary :D….but does anyone else notice that one of the guys is naked?
Not a fan of the packaging! Colors are okay, but I don’t wear blue colors.
that is FREAKING awesome!!!!!! Can’t wait, Christine, thanks for posting this!!
Love the packaging!
I’m sooooo getting those eyeliners 😀
Thanks Christine! (why are you up se early?)
I love the look of the aqua eyeshadow! It looks like a fairly easy-to-wear blue. I also like the yellow.
i dident think wonder woman packaging was tacky, or the villains collection, but this screams disney channel to me! some colours are pretty, but still…:)xxx
I’m liking alot of the stuff here ^^ which a mondo plus because MAC collections haven’t much been enticing me much lately, that being said- I may be a little bias towards summer-tan collections =P
Intrigued by the pigment stacks, and maybe the teal/gray shadows. A lot of the shades of everything else are either seem like they’d be too bright or too warm for my taste.
The blush looks so pretty…Loving the polishes too…;)
Looking forward to the collection: especially the Hibiscus lipstick and silver metallic stacked pigments
Oh my gosh, this collection is screaming my name! I love the blush and the pigment stacks, and I can’t wait for swatches of the e/s and lip products!
Oh! I’m so glad to see Strange Potion again! The only one that I have from the VV collection is already half way gone 🙁
I am SO excited for this collection!! I want almost everything, especially those crushed metal pigments
Thanks for the heads up and the constant work and effort you put into your blog, Christine! You are a makeup angel! 🙂
I am loving the strange potion lipglass!
A tad underwhelmed by this collection. I do have to have that blush though. Maybe I will feel better about it once I see the swatches. Thanks for the info Christine!
Looks interesting so far, nothing looks like a must have yet. The packaging is okay I guess, but I really don’t like the makeup on the model.
Is this the same Saffron E/S That was released with the Mickey Contractor line?
It seems like it, but I’m not sure yet!
really not digging the packaging. reminds me of those tacky hawaiian shirts lol
Yeah… my wallet is not going to be happy with me when this collection comes out 🙁 I got my eye on 2 of the lipglasses, both of the pigment stacks, the teal eye liner, and maybe a lipstick… ugh! 🙁
I really don’t like the packaging, it looks cheap somehow.
“My Paradise” is sure to sell out fast!
The promo picture is just awful…
Oh no. I think this collection is going to make my wallet literally explode!!!
boooooooo…i’m dissapointed in the packaging.
That picture scared me! She kinda, sorta looks like a zombie… The pigment stacks look promising! 😀
FINALLY!! I haven’t been too impressed with most of the MAC collections over the past year, but this one gives me hope! Definitely looking forward to seeing the swatches for My Paradise blush, Hibiscus lipstick and Saffron and Short Shorts eyeshadows.
Wow!! This year I’ll not miss this collection and will definitely get the coral-gold blush. I missed MAC To the beach and the super gorgeous Thrills lipstick. Thanks a lot Christine.
Quite certain I just died from excitement. :)….
This collection looks soooo cute!!
Love the packaging! Crisp and clean.
OMG that promo pic is terrifying!!!!
That blush is gorgeous! Defiantly have that on my list. And strange potion…. And maybe the eyeliners.
Such a cute collection!
Thank for the info! 🙂
OMG Christine this is such a cuteee collection. I definately need to start saving soon. LOVE this one… OMG OMG love u
Definetly have my on the blush, single eyeshadows and a couple of lip products :)) pretty collection, cant wait for more info.
When i saw those package designs, i just thought about “Hawaii”
Burst Out lipstick will be mine!!! I go for anything purple or unique in lipsticks. I usually don’t buy the Summer collections cause I can’t wear make-up in the Summer. I am heat sensitive and sweat the minute the sun hits me. But lipstick…YES ma’am!!!! Tx for the information Christine!!!
I LOVE IT!!! Everything put the promo image… it kind of creeps me out!
Hmm… Not into the packaging. I think mainly because that hibiscus flower is blocking the MAC logo (have to admit- one of my favorite parts of a product). I’ll prolly get that shimmery white eyeliner and the nude nail polish. I like the blush but have a feeling that gold on the flower is overspary like the one released last summer with To The Beach. :/ I was looking forward to this collection. I hope your review brings back some of the excitement…
hi christine! quick question — is that saffron eyeshadow the same as the one that came out w/ mickey contractor?
It seems like it, but I’m not sure yet.
thanks a lot
I sure hope it is too!!!!!
Sooooooo cute!!!!!!!! I want everything!!!
Can’t wait for this one!!
I normally have zero interest in MAC, but a few of these look really nice!
Also, that model looks like she’s about to eat your soul. Scary!
Finally a collection with cute packaging! Although the collection itself isn’t very interesting to me, maybe I’ll grab a piggie stack. Thanks for the info Christine!
That picture of the surfer girl is horrible!! It looks like what happens to you when you are in the sun too much! Gross.
The blush and coral lipstick/lipglass will be mine! The packaging is too cute!
I’m so digging the pigment stacks, the lipsticks and that beautiful blush!! But oh boy that model is creepy. O_O
HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY!!
looks like some cute colours and lemming that my paradise blush but the packaging SUUUCKS! bleh
I might be hated for this comment, but I’m so tired of coral!! I know it’s the color of the moment (and again last year), but I have an overload of coral blushes and lipsticks!
Packaging is quite interesting. Looking forward to a few things from this collection.
I’ve been so disappointed with MAC packaging lately (Wonder Woman, VV, etc)– this collection looks like a Hawaiian punch container! Oh well, my wallet will be happy.
I love the blush, as long as the flower is not an overspray or chunky glitter. It has the potential to be amazing, which is funny, because it’s been non-stop “you have to have this” blushes from MAC over the last year (Marine Life, Stereo Rose, Bite of an Apple, Mighty Aphrodite, just to name a few).
…and hipness blush 🙂
These look amazing! I can’t wait to see them in person 🙂
OH MY GOD THE BLUSH! i just put like 10 notifications into my phone so I won’t forget to raid this…
The colors and products overall seem very cool, but that packaging…oh my god that’s very tacky. verry tacky.
What an amazing collection! I’m gonna have to create more vanity space for makeup once this collection comes out. I hope the Saffron in this collection is like the one from the Mickey Contractor collection.
Funny, i was thinking with all the collections mac came out lately that were in aweful packaging, i thought why not just make it white and simple and here it is. I would prefer it more simple but this is alright. I’m pretty excited.
Ooooooo love! Can’t wait!
That purple lipstick looks like the one to buy!
Crap. Here we go again.
As if MAC doesn’t have enough of my money, now it appeals directly to this born and raised beach bum Cali girl!
I really should hate you, MAC, I really should.
Just like last year’s To the Beach Collection, I’m super excited for this!
Curious about the tan tint, new coral blush (a more orange Hipness) and will not miss out on the crushed metal stacks this time!
Cute packaging. Very summery colors. I will have to see some swatches to be sure I don’t have dupes though. Def like the white and light grey eyeshadows which I know I don’t have dupes for.
Wow I think I want one of everything! I wonder how fast my paradise will sell out , Im definitely pre-ordering mine!
Im liking swell baby! Can’t wait for the reviews. Thanks for having this site!
Oh my gosh this is so cute! Good job MAC, I’m definitely going to pick up that blush and those shadows. The yellow is to die for!
I also like the eyeliners. Christine I have a question for you. I only own two eyeliners a Bobbi brown gel in black and a black sephora pencil obviously buying colored eyeliners hasn’t interested me much as I’ve been getting brushes and shadows. Do you think I should go with the 15 anniversary UD set or just pick up different eyeliners here and there. I mostly do natural looks if that helps. Thanks!
I love the set and it’s a great way to just be done with eyeliners in a way… but have you tried UD’s? If you haven’t, I would say try it first to see if the formula works for you (or else just be prepared to return the whole set).
i am in loveee i love surfing!!!!
Cute packaging! It looks like they are bringing back Strange Potion from Venomous Villians, right?
Mac hasn’t been releasing collections that I’ve really like lately but that’s been good for my wallet:)
I’m want to get my paradise blush, hangin loose nail laquer maybe, and gilded white eye liner so far
I guess thats not too bad
I like the teal nail polish and the white eye pencil.
Oooooh such lovely colors and amazing packaging! I mean I really LOVE the packaging! I may have to end my Mac boycott for that blush. Too bad the promo pic is hideous.
Not a big fan of the packaging, but the colors look so cute! i love MAC’s summer collections 🙂
I like the look of this! Very summery and exactly the colours I’d expect from a surfing inspired collection! I’m pretty curious about those Crushed Metallic Pigment Stacks. Oh well, a couple more months to go before we’ll know for sure! 😀
Thank you for posting this sort of information, Christine. I love looking at the promotional pictures and being able to see what it’s all about! You rock
Im excited about this…love the blush!
I was kinda hoping for a beach/ocean inspired theme with sandy golds, sky blues, shades of turquoise and teal and corals… not surfwear inspired!! Doubt i will get anything except the blush. but the blushsticks sound interesting.
I absolutely hateeee the packaging if it weren’t for that it probably wouldn’t be so bad, but i dont see anything epic, the packaging honestly looks like the fake barbie makeup you buy for a 7 year old where no matter what color it looks like everything basically comes out a clearish pink.
packaging is very unattractive. i’m really loving the blush & cannot wait to get my hands on it!!!
This collection packaging looks kinda funky oh well I will still probably buy all of it anyway!^_^
Oooh… I feel another Marine Life situation coming on!
OH MY GOD!Love! I need that blush, the off white shimmery eye liner, BOTH nail lacquers, strange potion lip glass, and swell baby e/s ! I am in love with this collection. So gorgeous and full of CORAL! Can’t wait for your reviews!
I actually think it’s cool how the packaging is based on surfboard wax tins. It’s a really neat idea. As for the colors, I need to see swatches before I can make a final judgment. But the Billionaire Bronze and the crushed metallic stacks intrigue me.
And, yes, I am a little put off by the fact the model doesn’t have eyebrows; it’d be one thing if it wasn’t such a high-maintenance shot. I’m just tired of the no-brow trend.
I don’t really like this collection! Everything is so natural looking, and I love dramatic makeup like blue lipstick and just crazy makeup! But I LOVE purple lipsticks, so I may get that purple one, if it is not a lustre finish. If it is, I am not going to get it because it will be way too sheer for me. I don’t know about any of the lipglasses, but I may pick up that pink one, and the blush is gorgeous! So I have to get that! But why does MAC put out so many collections??? I am always broke!
I absolutely love this collection! Pretty packaging a few great, normal priced products. Love it!
Gorgeous collection. They never disappoint with the summer collection. This is a very different look than last years beach collection. Looking forward to it!
First collection I have liked since A Tartan Tale. But the packaging…*sigh*. A simple white with a graphic (like they did with Liberty of London) would have been nicer.
And there goes my savings. So excited for new crush metal pigments! And that blush! Wow!
Cool looking forward to the pigment stacks.
Can anyone tell if the My Paradise blush is the same size as Marine Life (MSF size)?
Ack! I am always a sucker for the MAC summer collections, because I am warm toned. I like this one!!!!!
OMG! LOVE IT! PIGMENT STACKS TOO!?!? YAY! Such a great bang for the buck! I don’t like the promo photo with the model though, she doesn’t invoke summer, heat and bronzey goodness to me. She a little bit reminds of me of the rodart promo photo that was published. :/
YES!!! I’ve been eagerly awaiting this colour story. Thanks Christine!
OMG, I am a Total Sucker for Anything Beachy, Cant Wait!!!
ugh so annoying how people keep complaining about the packaging. get over it people. the products themselves are nice. who cares if the packaging isnt up to ur standards
Annnnnnnd now I’ll start saving up for this because, unfortunately, I really like all of it. Well, I guess I’ll have to wait and see what it looks like in real life. I’m always enticed by promo photos, but disappointed by the real thing.
The blush, Surf The Ocean metallic pigment stacks and the white and yellow eyeshadows…..definitely on my list. The aqua eyeshadow looks similar to Shimmermoss……
I’m not really into MAC but I’m loving the blush, pigment stacks, a lipstick, lipglass and the blue shadow. So happy 🙂 Need to start saving 🙂
I’ve never gasped excitedly at a computer screen but……OMFG LOVE IT!
Wrong model. That’s creepy.
orrible packaging, interesting shades…Mmm need To see it in person To décidé!
the lip products and blush look interesting
I love this packaging! I have been wanting white for the longest!
Oh shucks, I’m loving this way too much.
I am saving up for this one! this is what I’m talking about MAC!! thaaaankk you. loved your last beach collection, bought two things. now i want a looooooooooooot more.
I kinda like the packaging! Can’t wait to see the Blush Sticks!
The colors in this collection look too warm for me. The only things I’m interested in is the Yellow and the Teal eye shadows. I can take or leave the packaging.
oh! and i AM getting that blush ahhaha, i own a blush from the liberty collection, and a bronzer from the last summer collection… and no more blush from mac. i want that. sooooooooo bad. sooo pretty!
I think this packaging is the worst I’ve ever seen from MAC…
omg i want it all!
Interesting collection…some products worth checking out for sure! But please please please, for the love of God, re-release the 226 brush again instead of things like lipglasses that were just released a few months ago!! I want that brush so bad.
Oh and not sure I ‘get’ the promo picture.
YES! I’ve been waiting for some photos and info on this collection. I really hope those pigment stacks are great quality because I’m very interested in them.
omahgahhhd!! aqua crushed metal pigment???? i agree…i’m gonna be so poor…darnit!
The packaging is horrendous… But I love the blush!
That promo pic is kinda creepy. i love the matte shadows though.
AHHH SO EXCITED i want to hear more about thoes blush sticks xxx
Hmm..i’m not loving the yellow packaging at all..I really enjoyed last year’s summer beach collection though..it was more “summery” and inviting.
Poor wallet, poor Credit card. These lipsticks, pigments, lipglass, eye pencils, nails, Saffron Coral, Short Shorts Whte champagne, Sun Blonde Yellow with gold pearl, Surf U.S.A. Aqua with teal pearl, Swell Baby Medium gray, how much will I spend? 🙁 (—> my wallet which is crying) 🙂
They should’ve just put the hibiscus flower in kind of the corner of each package and placed the “MAC” beside it. Would’ve been much more clean and simple, without being overly tacky.
I love the products! The packaging reminds me of LILO and Stitch, and the model reminds me of the girl in The Exorcist…
I just forgot to mention, here’s hoping Bust Out is an amplified creme finish!!
Wow, I actually don’t like this collection very much! Well, at least not as much as last year’s MAC summer collection, or this year’s EL Bronze Goddess. The packaging is cute (the hibiscus motif totally takes me back to the 90s) but the colors just aren’t the right hues for me.
Not sold on this collection yet… I’m drawn to the corals, but how many coral lipsticks/blushes does one girl need? Also, not keen on the packaging at all, was hoping it would be more like To The Beach!
i cant wait for this time to save up! i hope that the flower on the my paradise blush isnt overspray 🙁
Despite the model and promo pic being decidedly uninspiring, I have to admit, I’m excited for this collection..
Wow, they’re bringing back Strange Potion and Saffron already? I’m not crazy about the design on the lipsticks, lipglasses and eye liners, but the eye shadows, nail lacquers and blush are really cute.
is strange potion the same as the evil queen strange potion?? i hope so!!
I agree, that model looks scary. And the logo on the packaging sucks. It reminds me of something I would create from Microsoft Word – – – making an oval, color in, put a flower in it and type MAC. But as far as what they are offering, the e/s look like dupes. So far, I think one of the stackers and the blush will be on my list. Looking forward to the rest of the collection.
I bet that blush is going to be a huge hit.
packaging – looks cheap and nasty.
products – look really nice.
Gorgeous. I’m excited by this collection.
Im not thrilled on the packaging, but the products look great ! So excited for the lipsticks ! xx
What is happening with MAC? I was so disappointed with the tacky Wonder Woman packaging. The Surf Collection is even more cheesy. The SC colors are also tremendously lackluster and boooring!
I hate the packaging and none of the colors are a must except for a backup of solar riche (thank you mac gods for bringing it back), which is good because i’ll be out of the country when it comes out anyways.
I love this collection!!! Going to start saving now!!! Once again, Mac is awesome!!!!
Lovely colours, terrible packaging. Looks like something from the early ’90s.
Seriously, what is up with MAC these days? I used to be such a hardcore fan. I know it must be tough with the economy and all but really? Don’t jeopardize your integrity and raise your prices and turn around and be lazy with design and packaging. if this is what MAC wants to represent-CHEAP-then so be it, i think i’m no longer a fan of this brand as they seem to be slapping anything on their products thinking that everyone will buy it because it’s MAC. i had much more respect for this brand back when they were worthy to love.
YAAAYYY!!! They brought back Saffron eyeshadow from the Mickey Contractor collection! Too bad they didn’t bring back the Flesh lipglass from that same collection too though.
love the packaging simple but cool love the inprint on the powwer blushs really groovy hate promo pic it should be colourful for summer surly!
I’m soooo getting this. I do think the model’s picture is creepy.
I am loving this collection! I plan on spending about $75 :/ Ahh!
Seeing the word “coral” like three times means this collection is definitely for me! And I think the packaging is so pretty, especially with the eyeshadows.
Good, I will be passing on this collection. It’s full of the same old shades and colors that MAC already has promoted before.
This collection looks like it is going to burn a hole in my wallet.
this looks too much like the to the beach collection from last year!!
i am such a junkie for this stuff!! The collection is mine! muahhh!!
Not terribly awesome. But those pigment stacks look cool! They look like coloured beach sand!
Hey, I just LOOOOOVE this colection. Is the shorts for sale eather? lol..
packaging ok but i love love love purple lipstick right now
I love the po;ishes and nude lipstick…and maybe the blush,too!!
hahaha so funny how most of you hate the packaging and I’m sitting here going “WOW I like this packaging I might actually buy something!”. ha! 😛
can’t keep up with MAC collections anymore. this one is not for me. will definitely pass.
This is the first collection in a while that I’ve gotten really really excited about…
I’m hyperventilating right now, guys. This is a problem.
Where’s the model’s eyebrows??
OhMyWord! I don’t know…HAHA! That’s so creepy..
Are the shorts part of the launch? I wish, but it wouldn’t be logical. I want the shorts! I also intend to internet stalk My Paradise because of the flower. Just like Marine Life it will adorn my bathroom and grace it with its pretty untouched overlay. Yep, I’m one of those people.
Love it! Can’t wait!! Summer of Mac!! Yippee
Last years collection was way prettier…(SAD)I guess I will splurge on a new handbag 😉
hmmmmm,I was expecting something ALOT better since the To The Beach collection was AMAZING.But I have to say I am quite disappointed 🙁
i know what you mean. I LOVED “to the beach”, and was hoping this was going to be somewhat better.
Some swatches here:http://princessebeudy.fr/2011/02/mac-collection-surf-baby-deux-items/ , on a reputable french beauty blog…
YAY, I get to stack up on my “strange potion” l/g again!!! 😀
Not fond of the packaging! It’s just not the sleek MAC look I’m used to.
not diggin the packaging, but some of the products do sound nice. 🙂
I can’t wait for this!!! Lucky thing I only saw like, 2 things I want from the Quite Cute collection. This one is going to break my wallet in half!
I’m from Hawaii so it’s nice to see a collection like this coming from MAC 🙂
crap…after quite cute and surf baby i may be homeless…lol
Seems like only yesterday the “To the Beach” collection came out. Oh summer, how I love thee! 🙂
I read this post from my phone before, and I musn’t have been paying attention because… ONE blush??!!! oh noes! must be mine! 0_0
Oh damn you MAC! I thought I would be pretty safe after the QC collection, but NO! Now I want everything from this collection. I still need to find out about the Fashion Flower & Flighty collections cause I need me some colored mascaras. That blush will be all mine ladies. Loving that orange & purple lipstick. When will we find out about what kind of finish the lipsticks are? Hoping for amplifieds so that the colors are creamy & bright.
The packaging reminds me of Malibu Barbie for some reason. I havent bought a dang thing from any of the Mac collections this year, which is insane cause I’m the biggest Mac fan ever. Nothing excites me here, expect for a few lip glasses. And Mocha lipstick? I HATE when Mac releases permanent items in their LE collections. Mac collections make me sad.
love the packaging in this one!!
