Hi everyone! So yesterday marked the release of MAC`s `Alluring Aquatic` summer collection in stores, and judging from its online sales, this collection was going to sell out quickly. I wasn`t able to buy anything online when it was initially available, so I was counting on being at the stores when the mall opened so I could get my paws on some of these pretties. Blue is one of my favorite colors, and I love the beauty of water so this collection was a must for me. For some reason MAC seems to hit home runs when it comes to its summer collections. Last year`s `Temperature Rising` collection was also very popular, but all of the other collections released during the year are less exciting.
I was actually in school before the mall opened and happened to be checking some of the sites that sold the collection before the physical release date and was able to get some items from Nordstrom on backorder, so those will be shipping the first week of June. Everything shown in this post was picked up at Nordstrom, MAC or Macy`s.
The packaging for Alluring Aquatic is so beautiful. Everything that is normally black for the regular MAC packaging is bright teal/aqua with a metallic finish. To highlight the aquatic aspect even further, the box packaging and the product packaging feature raised water drops. Due to the special packaging, the prices were raised for every item in the collection, even the permanent shade bronzers (Golden and Refined Golden) housed in special packaging.
What I picked up:
>> Extra Dimension Blushes in `Sea Me, Hear Me` and `Seduced at Sea`
>> Extra Dimension Eyeshadows in `Sea Worship,` `Fathoms Deep` and `Legendary Lure`
>> Cremesheen lipstick in `Mystical`
Needless to say I am very happy I was able to get everything I wanted from the collection (which includes the backordered items), but my wallet is very angry with me.
Thanks for reading! Did you get anything from this collection?
