I did my haul yesterday and I'm super excited about it!! I got Crew, Fleet Fast, Red Racer & Sail la vie l/s and Riviera life l/g. Red Racer was not on my list but I couldn't skip this, it's an amazing clean red! Riviera life is my new favorite l/g, it's not as sticky as I thought it would be and its color is so vibrant. Sail la vie is the perfect orange
Fleet fast is a very complimentary shade, it's really pigmented so I don't have to use a lot! And last but not least, Crew!! I prefer using this as a blush, I'm sooo happy the stripes are not an overspray!!

Tommorrow, I'm going back for one of the bronzers, and I also have to choose between Launch Away p/b & Feeling Fresh e/s. Love them both but I can afford only one.
This has nothing to do with Hey Sailor collection, but I really wanted to share this with you guys because I'm very disappointed. When I asked the MUA about Extra Dimension and Tres Cheek collections, she told me that we're not getting these in Greece at all..
The more I look at everyone's swatches, the more I'm getting tempted by this collection. Crew does look pretty in your swatch, but it seems like I have so many light pink blushes... I think there's part of me that hates the idea of letting the "summer special" powder pass me by, since I have Marine Life and My Paradise. (And I use them both, particularly ML, very frequently.)
As far as not getting the collections, I think it's worth double-checking. Maybe not all counters are getting them, or maybe they'll only be available on line, but it seems strange that you wouldn't get the collections at all. Hopefully, you get better news soon.
If you have been making purchases at their MAC counter, I bett the SA will hold one for you. The SA's that work at my Macy's MAC are really good that way and will hold one for me--they even called me when they restocked from S3C3 which is how I got a Dish It Up.
It NEVER hurts to ask, the worst that will happen is they will say they can't.
I second that. You'd be surprised at how willing a lot of MUAs are to help you, even if they don't seem to recognise you when you're there.
Those who have hauled, what're your Hey, Sailor! looks? I was in a rush this morning and wanted to use the eye shadows but I was so tired I couldn't even think of what to do with them. I'm lacking inspiration at the moment.. or I'm just so exhausted with exams that I no longer have an imagination lol.
I haven't hauled yet, but I'd personally love to see a combination of Crystal Avalanche with Barefoot on the eyes. I've had CA for ages and I love it, because it really makes a bright pop on the eyes. I think the combination of shimmery whiter-than-white and rich gold would look lovely. Especially with an intense red or orange lip. Sort of a bold look, but I think it could work. (See? I said there was hardly anything I wanted and I'm already planning looks...)
