MAC Haul and First Impressions: Alluring Aquatics

2 years ago

Back a few months ago MAC came out with the Alluring Aquatics collection. The collection was well known for it`s unique packaging; metallic blue with clear drops that made it seem as if water was on it. I had been eyeing one particular product when the collection came out but sadly it was sold out way too fast before I was able to get it. So pretty much I gave up trying to find it. The only places that sold the products were on ebay but sellers were jacking the prices way up!

I recently stopped by my local MAC to see the Simpsons collection in person just for kicks and was surprised to see them selling a few products from the Alluring Aquatics collection. I was secretly hoping to find the Mystical Lipstick and just as luck would have it, I did! In fact I found the last two of them! I asked the sales associate why they still had these for sale since the collection was sold out in days, and I was told that a few products were randomly found in the stock room. (The Mystical Lipstick is a `mid-tone creamy rose` colour in a cremesheen finish.)

First Impressions:
-Packaging: this is what definitely caught my attention; it`s super cute and unique! I like that I`m able to tell right away which lipstick it is rather than reading the bottom labels. I`m a sucker for limited edition products!
-Colour: mid-tone rose lipsticks are my favourite shade to buy mainly because it`s just a better version of my natural lip colour. And I like how it`s not a `in your face` kind of colour.
-Smell: has the same scent as every other lipstick made by MAC. To me it smells like a light vanilla.
-Price: each lipstick was $21 CAD. This is more than the usual price for a lipstick due to the limited edition packaging. I wished the Canadian prices matched the American ones ($17.50 USD vs $21 CAD)!

Overall, I`m stoked to have found not only one but two Mystical lipsticks! I can`t wait to try them out!

Did you buy anything from this collection?
