MAC launched a new line of cosmetics for the start of beach season that are really flirty and fun. All very sunny and bright colours, they make a gal wanna hit the sandy shore with a big towel and some oversized sun glasses.
MAC describes the new line as such: The seaside has a kind of golden, sexy alchemy we're all drawn to. This collection encapsulates it with the most soothing, sultry shades of summertime. A safe way to bronze, beautify, and get colour that looks sun-kissed. Close your eyes, and go To The Beach!
Couldn’t have said it better myself MAC. Now let’s have a little look-see at what they came up with to smear on my face.
Eye Shadow $14.50 (U.S.)
Sand & Sun -Light peach (Matte)
Firecracker -Frosted mid-tone red-orange (Veluxe Pearl)
Sweet & Punchy -Bright yellow-green (Veluxe Pearl)
Shimmermoss -Green with green pearl (Veluxe Pearl)
Humid -Intense green with shimmer (Frost)
Dontcha just love the packaging? That’s always my weakest spot. I’d buy poison if they put in a pretty enough package. Makes you wonder how much time they spend on the presentation vs. the actual product.
Lipstick $14.00 (U.S.)
Beach Bound -Sheer frosted pale peach (Glaze)
Lazy Day -Light dirty blue-pink (Lustre)
Thrills -Rosy copper with gold pearl (Frost)
Fun Bathing -Mid-tone bronzed plum (Creme Sheen)
Lip Glass $14.00 (U.S.)
Easy Lounger -Light baby pink with multi-dimensional pearl

Thanks for making my lips glossy and sparkly Mr. Seahorse!

What’s a beach look without a little bronzer on your cheeks? Nothing, that’s what. It can be really tricky to apply when you’re a pasty white girl like me though.
Lustre Drops $18.50 (U.S.)
Pink Rebel -Blue-pink with gold pearl

I don’t know what a “lustre drop” is but I know I want it…. I want to be lustrous too.

May as well bronze up those gams while you’re at it!
Nail Lacquer $12.00 (U.S.)

Scorcher -Creamy bright coral-red (Cream)
Brush 130 Short Duo Fibre $38.00 (U.S.)

Flat, tapered face brush that contains a combination of short, natural, fibers and longer, fibre optic fibres ideal for light application and highlighting/ shading with various face powders; Ideally suited with mineralize skinfinish powder products.
Not sure why it needs it’s own set of “beach brushes” but who am I to question the skilled masterminds at MAC? Is it just me or does it look like a cat’s paw coming out of the end of the stick? Someone get that kitty outta there stat!
MAC To The Beach Bag $49.50 (U.S.)
Available only at MAC store -Limited edition
And of course you need a bag to store all this stuff in along with your towel and sunscreen but don’t fret cuz they got your back there too. Gee MAC, you really thought of everything, you’re swell. Now let’s hit the waves!
