MAC Alluring Aquatic kicks off the Spring 2014 launches

I’m back, bitches.

I’ve missed you lot and I’ve missed being able to include words like bitches in the things I write. I don’t have replacements for my own tools yet (details), so I’m working on a pretty old loan laptop and I dug out my old point and shoot camera. But in the end I figured the trimmings aren’t as important – I have my mojo back (I’m here writing at 6pm on a Friday evening instead of living it up with a vodka in hand – although no guarantees I’m not going to do that later) so I’ll carry on instead.

To start, this entire week will be devoted to MAC cosmetics with one collection being featured every day (other things too, don’t fear if that’s not your thing – I’ll be loading two posts most days this week to catch up). MAC has a whopping FIVE collections launching on May 23rd, and I’ve been drooling over them long enough – time to share.

MAC limited edition collections are technically available for 4-6 weeks but the most popular items sometimes sell out within the first day or two. If you’re after specific items, it’s best to get there on launch day. It usually only goes online a couple of days after it launches in stores, but to be sure it’s best to subscribe to the newsletter on maccosmetics.co.za.

Since it’s my party, I’m featuring my favourite collection first – MAC Alluring Aquatic.

MAC Alluring Aquatic

I lost my heart a little here – chromes, olives, metallics, plums and glistening nudes might give you an idea of what’s going on here – it’s not aquatic shades, but shades of things that are in the ocean. Easily one of my favourite, most wearable MAC collections to date – a shopping trip is absolutely in order. Never have I ever seen so many products from one MAC collection that I needed wanted. And one of those two pale lipsticks MUST be the perfect nude pink that has eluded me all my life.

If my dire budget was no factor I’d happily get myself all the eyeshadows except the blue and green, the lighter blush, a nude pencil and lipstick, the brushes AND the nail polishes. I’m clearly sold on Alluring Aquatic.

      Erm, BRUSHES. Not brushers. Haha. Got a little carried away there… the excitement is too much!

        It is very exciting indeed, who can blame you for a teeny little typo? Flip, can’t remember when Last I wanted so much MAC.

    MAC Mystical lipstick is on my wishlist. This will be my first MAC lipstick. Actually, the first MAC product I’ll ever buy myself. The other MAC thing I own is one of their single eyeshadows in Print 😛 So excited!
