MAC Alluring Aquatics Swatches and Review!

Brand: MAC Cosmetics

Collection: Alluring Aquatics (LE)

MAC Alluring Aquatics

First off, apologies for taking long with this mini review and swatch post.  Okay (assuming you accepted my apologies, let’s get to it), so I didn’t get as many things as I thought I was from this collection.  As it often happens with MAC, you see a color, get excited then the excitement waivers when the colors are not up to expectations in person. At least for me that is the case sometimes, the colors look different in person than they do on the website.  Alas, I did get some things. Now on to the fun stuff!

So let’s start with the Extra Dimension Bronzer in Aphrodite’s Shell.

 I LOVE THIS bronzer.  It isn’t dark on me, it only really gives me a very light glow which I love, especially for more natural looks.  I usually use it to set my foundation and add some color back into my face.  For reference I am around a NC30 in MAC’s foundation.  It leaves a gorgeous satin finish and just makes skin look radiant.  I give this a solid 8 out of 10.

Next up is the matte lipstick in Enchanted One.  This color is lovely, a very gorgeous brown-nude.  Like most MAC lipsticks it stays on for quite a while and has amazing color payoff.  Again, this is a nude lipstick with hints of brown and a slight burnt peachy undertone.  Here it is:

Next is the MAC Lip glass in Seducing Sound.  I really love this color! It’s shimmery and bronze and totally appropriate for summer!  The shimmer doesn’t look too glittery on the lips (and I totes appreciate that).  It’s also very lovely when layered on top of the lipstick.

Last but not least is the lip liner in What Comes Naturally.  This lip liner blends into my skin perfectly which makes it the perfect pencil to shade in for nude lips or whenever I want to tweak the shape of my lips.

Overall the collection was a bit underwhelming, but I do love the products I did choose to buy.  To be honest the real highlight of the collection is the stunning packaging.  I don’t think I’ve seen packaging that is quite as beautiful as this.
