Because why not?

MAC Cosmetics - Alluring Aquatic Collection + Giveaway. CLOSED - Winners Announced.

10 June 2014
So the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection was released in Australia on the 2nd of June and life made sure that I wasn't able to purchase anything until a week later when most of the goodies were sold out. So rude.



Anyway I grabbed a few things and thought I'd do some swatchy swatches for you.

Oh.. While I was looking at the goodies I had you folks on my mind so I grabbed a couple extras for some giveaways. You're welcome.

Eye Shadow - Silver Sun
I wanted a lot of the eye shadows from this collection and was pretty sad when I saw this was the only one they had left but after swatching it I knew I had to have it. Like butter.

It's described as a midtone dirty seafoam green but I would just call it fucking gorgeous, guess MAC wouldn't find that so easy to get away with though.


Lipstick - Siren Song
Again, wasn't my first choice in the collection but the only one they had left, I hesitated for about 0.5 of a second before grabbing two.




This is a Lustre formula and described as a sheer pale beige, when I saw how sheer this was when swatched I knew it would be wearable for anyone and that was when I grabbed a second one for you guys. I have a plum lip stain on in the picture above so the colour you see is more pink than the actual lipstick but if you usually fear nudes you should know that this one is very soft and forgiving. I can see myself layering with this a lot in the future.

Nail Polish - Shimmer Fish, Submerged & Neptune


From left to right as pictured.

Shimmerfish - Described as a sparkling platinum this stunning silver is opaque in two coats, dries quickly and was my favourite in the collection. You get one too!

Submerged - Described as a dark teal chrome. I don't think it's teal but I did think it would be mean to omit this from my purchase, can't be mean to the pretty polish now can we!

Neptune - Described as a tarnished gold, god knows I don't need more nail polish. Wanting more nail polish is another story though. Not sorry that I own this now.


The packaging is killer! MAC has done an awesome job creating the textured feel and the wet look throughout the collection. It's love.

  3. Oh my..I am loving the seafoam green. I have a strong passion for green eyeshadows.
    I really dont have an all time Mac Favorite as Ive never really had MAC products so i have no experience with them.
    For future MAC giveaways im keen on anything at all as i really dont know anything about their products from personal experience...greens and oranges are enticing.

  5. I am so in love with all 3 nail polish that you got! They're just so gorgeous!!! I hope I win it! ;)
    I haven't bought any MAC products lately and i don't have a favorite but I'm loving this collection.
    As for your future MAC giveaways, I'm happy with any but I'm a lippie girl so I'll say more lip products please! :)

    1. Hi Monique, I can see some tweet entries from you in the list of entries on both giveaways, since it is a daily entry the tweet link needs to be different each day, have you tried to use the same link as yesterday? I believe it monitors them and my not accept the links unless they are different.

  7. I did a different tweet this morning and after I refreshed the page it didn't accept the entries, but I just tried again now and it seems to be working - yay! Sorry to annoy haha must've been my shitty internet or something

  10. I'd love to see matte eyeshadows, everything is sparkly nowadays - which is great when I want to stand out, but sometimes I like to blend in.
    And favourite MAC product would have to be SIREN SONG lipstick, I dreamt about it last night. Gotta get me one of those!!

  11. My favorite MAC product is Hue lipstick. It's such an easy color to wear and I've even had friends purchase it on my recommendation.

    I love MAC Pro Longwear Concealer and a great giveaway would be the gel eyeliners! Thanks

  15. I would love to see a giveaway with MAC eyeshadows, paint pots or fluid line eyeliner!

  16. I think this is the best limited edition collection MAC has done in a while. As to giveaways, pencils, paintpots and lipsticks. A girl can never have too many lipsticks. Maybe a brush, they are always good too.
