Blogosphere Buzz : MAC To The Beach Collection

The much anticipated MAC collection, To The Beach, is definitely not disappointing. The summer collection launched in U.S./Canada a few days ago, and most of the collection had already sold out online and in stores. This is one of the biggest collections that MAC had came out with recently, with 31 products debuting all at once. The retro and summer themed packaging attracted many attention, and certain items, such as the Marine Life Highlight Power ($26), has been the talk of the blogosphere world. Unfortunately, the collection is flying off the shelve so quick that if you are interested in any of the products, go get it now.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get the highlight powder. However, both my MAC counter and MAC store said that they are expecting another shipment of Marine Life soon, so if any of you ladies is still looking for it, call your MAC and ask about their restock date. Luckily, I was able to get everything else on my wishlist from this collection.

  • Hipness ($18.50) : is a very beautiful coral blush with pink undertone. It was originally released with the Fafi Collection. The subtle golden shimmer in the blush is very pretty but not overwhelming. This is the blush to have for the summer.

  • Firecracker ($14.50) : is a coral shade with a very strong orange undertone. Under certain lightening, it is almost an orange color. It has very high pigmentation and shows up beautifully.
  • Sweet & Punchy ($14.50) : is a very unique yellowish green color. It is the most anticipated shade from this collection and is definitely not something that you usually see from MAC. It is very similar to Nars Rated R Duo Eyeshadow ($32), which has a much stronger greenish tone.

  • Thrills ($14) : is a very pretty rosy red color with golden shimmer and a bronze undertone. The color is a perfect shade to hit the beach with.

  • Easy Lounger ($14) : is a baby pink shade with silver shimmer. It's not something special and can be easily duped. The color is also very sheet. I got it only because I had some B2M empties. Otherwise, I probably would have just skipped this.
  • Flurry of Fun ($14) : is a peachy color with very beautiful teal shimmer. It is also very sheer but the teal shimmer is very unique. This is my favorite out of the 3 lipglosses.
  • Splashing ($14) : is a blue toned pink shade. It can easily duped and would be nice to pair with Angel lipstick ($14).
