Waking up this morning and seeing the promo pics and discussion threads already for a collection that doesn't come out in Aus until May/June has officially put me into MAC burnout! I looked at the collection and NOTHING interested me.....
I feel like it is all the same stuff just renamed and repackaged... Even the cream bronzers arent calling my name...
I just took a closer look at the collection. For the first time in the history of man I am interested in a MAC nail polish. Thought that I would never own one, I have found every single one boring or straight down ugly. But that "In the Buff" sounds amazing! And unique!
Will I have to buy a nail polish from MAC? A very dear friend of mine will absolutely kill me if I do.
^When I first saw the packaging I thought it looked kinda cheap and Avon-y but the little starfish on the blush and the sea horsey on the highlight powder are adorable. >_< My list for this is pretty short thankfully.
Easy Lounger lipglass
Float on By Eye Kohl
Marine Life Highlight Powder <3 Cuuuuute!
Scorcher Nail Polish - if the formula is good.
Oh goodness, I know what mama wants for mother's day this May!!! Everything up there is calling me! I live 35 minutes from the beach, and these are the types of colors I wear in the summer when I'm darker. This is perfect for me! I can't wait till the swatches start popping up!
I actually quite like the green packaging, but I don't care for the green/orange combo. IMO it should have been all one color. I don't want a ton from this collection, but the few things I am eyeing, I am excited about
I think I would like:
Sweet & Punchy e/s – Bright Yellow Green (Veluxe Pearl)
Shimmermoss e/s – Green with Green Pearl (Veluxe Pearl) (WHY don't I have this already?)
Easy Lounger l/g – Light Baby Pink with Multi-Dimensional Pearl
Float on By e/k – Dark Green Turquoise
Hipness Blush – Intense Coral with Soft White Pearl (Frost)
From the leaked photo of the collection I can piece what some of those things are in the photo. I love the eyeshadows and I definitely want to try the cream bronzers. I definitely want the eyeshadows. I think this collection will be a major haul. Alot of the repromotes I skipped last year like the lustre drops and I dont have any of MAC's bronzers but solar riche. I already made my list. Hoping the list will shrink when we get some swatches.
I love the models swimsuit, I wish they were releasing that too!
But in truth, I am kinda disappointed w this collection. There are maybe 2 or 3 eyeshadows and 1 lipstick that I like, but Im not excited like I was with Style Warriors or Neo Sci-Fi. Nothing screams must have to me, but maybe it is bc my collection has come full circle?
Though it's cute, I'll probably will myself to pass on the gimmicky seahorse powder. It kind of reminds me of Chantecaille's previous special releases with the gorgeous designs...like they're trying to mimic those.

I am betting so, too. Have we seen a highlight powder yet that wasn't overspray? Dame Edma, Baloonacy, Naked Honey... they were all overspray. When I hear the words "highlight powder" I automatically assume the pretty will be gone in one swipe
