MAC To the Beach Collection — Official Information & Photos
There is fun in the sun, to be sure, but to the beach is more of a sensual state of mind – a pleasure we all feel near the sea. The girl and boy from Ipanema, from Cap d’Antibes to West Palm Beach… all around the world, the seaside has a romance, and a kind of golden, sexy alchemy we’re all drawn to. This collection encapsulates it, with a new, lapping-wave lip pencil and high-light powder in coral shades, nail lacquer – a scorcher! – eye shadow, kohl, and powder blush to get away from it all effortlessly. Sand-dabs, seashells, the magic of marine life decorating packaging in the most soothing, sultry shades of summertime. Close your eyes, and go to the beach!
What’s on your wish list? What are you most excited for?

Ugh that powder is to die for!
hmm, I’m only looking at Sand and Sun e/s, Flurry of fun l/g and the highlight powder. I wish they hadn’t made Beachbound a glaze 🙁
I absolutely agree on the beachbound part! Really wanted it for the color, but glaze?
I’m looking into:
Sand & Sun e/s
Flurry of Fun lg
Temperature rising lp
Marine Life Hp (it’s soooo pretty)
and the 130 brush.
Such a pretty collection, I’m loving it.
I’m also wondering what sweet and punchy looks like compared to Lucky Green, probably alot more yellow but I want to see them side by side before I purchase.
Specktra has a comparison shot in their To The Beach swatch forum.
Been waiting for this since it was announced. I don’t know how I’m going to accomplish it but I’m going to fight tooth and nail to get that tote bag — especially since I was never able to get my hands on the Hello Kitty bag!!
I heard from someone (blanking on who – can’t remember if it was a reading or a MUA) said their store only got THREE bags in.
I think it will be sold online, though… usually EVERYTHING is online, even if it says MAC stores only.
Everything from this collection looks cheap with that packaging, I just get swallow the whole beach theme. I think there are one or two lipglasses I might want or maybe one of the what I think are the bronzing powders the one in the orange packaging. But I think I’ll pass, who knows most of the time the online photos can be deceiving so I might like it better in person.
I want Thrills lipstick!!!!!
The collection already came out here in the UK…I have no idea what to buy, but i can’t wait too long or everything will be sold out! :/
If any of you guys want the seahorse higlight powder or the 131 brush, just a warning, in the UK they sold out on the website in like the first day they were out!!!
I bought too many things from the collection, they were all too pretty! I might be broke now, but least I look good!! LOL
hey, will you be getting all the products in because I really want to see what they look like and order online…I always trust your opinions and you have been right on every occasion 😀
Also…coz i know you have hipness, does it look like benefit coralista because I dont want to get hooked onto a le product…
I always buy all of the products when possible. Thanks!
Coralista is more pigmented and pinker than Hipness.
I’ve purchased the highlighting powder, hipness blush, the refined golden bronzing powder and the 130 due fibre brush from this collection 🙂 im looking to purchase the cream bronzers and the 131 brush 🙂
I really want…
– Marine Life highlight powder
And I think thats it… unless your swatches will make me want more, which is all too likely XD
I was looking at pictures of the tote though, and I think Europe is getting a completely different tote, unless I remember it wrong. I think it was green?
I’ve got the Marine Life highlight powder and it’s awesomeness!!! And I’ve also got Thrills lipstick, lovely color! =)
Overall I really like this collection! Thanks for the infos & photos! ^_^
I am looking into the powder bronzers, but don’t know which one to choose and I’m most likely gonna be buying online. I have warmer and yellow-er skintone, which one suits me more? Thanks! Really look forward to your full review 🙂
Golden is really light, Refined Golden is a bit darker – if you are really light, go with Golden. Either will work for warm skin!
bronze oil.. mmmm 😉
I am little disappointed in the lack of limited addition colors. Especially in the eye shadows. Still a lovely collection.
I think I will have to see swatches of the lipsticks to know what I’ll get but I know for sure I want the highlight powder, which for be will be more of a blush, and a powder bronzer in “Golden”. I really love the powder bronzer packaging.
I am definately going to pick up all the lip glasses, maybe the pink lipstick, the olive eyeliner and the peach eye shadow. Ouch, that is going to cost me! Better start saving now
I’m rellay looking foreward Thrills since seeing the “faux” preview.
– Blush in Hipness
– Cream Bronzer in Beach Bronze
Wait, are they not coming out with Refined Golden and Golden in this collection? 🙁 I see the promo pics for it though!
Are the bronzers a powder or cream? Your previous post mentions refined golden (which I have) but this post has two different colors… Just wondering!
I’m actually excited about this collection.. rarely do I do so with MAC. The colors are right up my alley.. I can’t wait to see Sweet & Punchy, I’m always on the look out for a nice green e/s. Well heck, I can’t wait to see the whole collection!
I’m from the UK and just got my haul today. Bought some of the eye shadows – Sweet and Punchy is exactly the same as Rated R, which is a bit disappointing – will be returning that one. Also, firecracker is very similar hot hot hot – from the spring collection.
Must Haves: Hipness blush, Highlight powder
Maybe: 131 brush, Lazy Day lipstick, firecraker eyeshadow
Thank You for the pictures Christine 😉
I’m wondering if the boxes will have special packaging as well? just curious 🙂 Thanks!
They are green or orange 🙂
I got lustre drops…..so so pretty!!!
The high-light powder and the 130 caught my eye, maybe an eyeliner cause the packaging is so cute. The lipsticks look like neosci-fi though.
I want the highlight powder and thrills lipstick for sure and possibly the Sun Rush lustre drops, depending on how dark and orange it is. I also want to check out the Funbathing lipstick. 🙂
Luckily the only things i have my eye on:
the MSF highlighter
Float on By pencil
i can pass on rest…
I got a couple of things and posted swatches!
Haul and Swatches:
Hipness applied to the cheeks:
Coral blushes comparison swatches:
Viva Glam Gaga vs. Lazy Day:
Hope it’s helpful! (normally I always check your site Christine, but this time that wasn’t possible). I just realized how much of a help your swatches always are!
Does anyone know how close Sweet & Punchy will be to Bitter? That’s really the only thing that I’m eying from this collection.
Or lucky green for that matter?
Not at all 🙂
Call me a nerd, but I’m planning to take the day off work to go to MAC!
Here is my shopping list, which may change once I see the products in person.
Eyeshadow in Sand & Sun, Firecracker, Sweet & Punchy and Shimmermoss
Lipstick in Thrills and Funbathing
Lipglass in Flurry of Fun
Lip Pencil in Temperature Rising
Eye Kohl in Float On By
Bronze Body Oil
I am confused as to why the 130 is listed as a Limited Edition item but on the website, it does not indicate that it’s a LE brush.
This is my list (may change once I see products in person)
Float On By pencil
Marine Life powder
Beach Bronze cream bronzer
Sand & Sun eyeshadow
If the cream bronzer has a ton of shimmer in it, I probably won’t bother purchasing. If Sand & Sun has poor colour pay-off, I won’t bother with that either. Really looking forward to this!
-eyeshadow in sweet & punchy
-eye kohl in float on by
-bronzing powder in refined golden
-lipglass in flurry of fun
If I get EVERYTHING that I want it will set me back $400.00!!! Thank Goodness my Birthday is on the 18th!! I have been good and have not made any MAC purchases lately.
I’m making my list now.
I’m so excited for this. I basically skipped over Pret-A-Papier, with the exception of the Coral Crepe paint pot. This collection is beautiful. I’m definitely going for the highlight powder, both brushes, a few shadows, Hipness (blush), and Lazy Day lipstick. Oh, and the lighter of the two cream bronzers. Love it!
Have so far bought
– Highlight powder
– Cream Bronzer in Beach Bronze – love love love it
– Thrills l/s
But am betting will be back for more after your reviews!
😀 I just sold back my books XD and got enough money to cover what I want from this collection… I think… your swatches and opinions always sway me. 😛
-Lazy Day *maybe
-Beach Bound *maybe
-All lip glosses (at least flurry of fun and one other)
-Float on by *possibly
-Luster drops Sun Rush *maybe
-My first bronzer *maybe
-Highlight powder *possibly if i can get my hands on it
T_T My wallet is crying…
The Hipness blush and Splashing gloss are on my wish list for sure. I would have to see the eye shadows in person before purchasing them.
man for all the stuff i liked !!!! im gonna go broke !!! not fair mac!!!
I really love the packaging but I don’t really see anything worth buying. Maybe the Float on By eye kohl but besides that I think I’m all set.
What do u recommend in this whole collection
I haven’t seen the whole collection, so I can’t make any recommendations.
is that 130 brush permanent?
I think it may be now 🙂
when this collection hit the UK within a day it was sold out across the hole UK is this out in AMERICA yet? and does any1 know if i can purchase it from america n ship to london :(((((((((((( the highlight powder was the ONLY ONLY thing i wanted and before i could even breathe it was sold out
Not yet 🙁 It was on Bloomingdale’s website for under a week, but they removed it.
do you think its possible to ship it from america to london when it comes out via the MAC webisite Christine? Because when i click on the MAC website for america it automatically turns into the UK one 🙁
As far as I know, you can’t 🙁
the prices for lipstick are not posted above… are they the regular price? Do you know if B2M empties are accepted for this collection?
They’re $14. Check with your local store for the B2M policy.
Are the bronzing powders (Golden & Refined Golden) from the permanent line?? Please let me know!!
I’m looking into:
Golden Bronzing Powder
Get-Away Bronze blush
really cant wait for this im so excited
I hope they launch earlier here in the philippines, i really like the highlight powder and the hipness blush. 🙂
when wil this be realease in australia
Hey I own the marine life but my light pink side is at the bottom.
Is it supposed to be like that cause in the picture it’s the opposite..
Nope – everyone’s is reversed compared to the pic!
