MAC Alluring Aquatic

MAC has done it again with another stunning and innovative collection. This limited edition collection will launch mid May online, and this Friday at MAC in Limegrove and Cave Shepherd, Barbados in time for the Summer 2014 season. The MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection packaging gives a sense of coolness and the aquatic properties are evident with the colour and water droplets. Even though the packaging is bright blue, the colours of the products are on the softer nude side for the bronzers and blushes with rich eye shadow and lipstick colours such as darkened plum and tarnished olive giving the eyes extra dimension. The bronzer and blushes are seen in soft bronze tones, coppers and peaches. The eye shadows come in a spectrum of colours starting with nudes and ending with richer tone and the same can also be said for the lip gloss and lipstick. The nail polishes are in keeping with the same sea goddess theme but in more shimmery darker tones such as Neptune tarnished gold. 
 

Thanks to MAC I was able to get my hands on a few of the new Alluring Aquatic products before they are out in stores and I have to say they are even more impressive and beautiful in person. The packaging is stunning and it looks like there are water droplets dancing on the shimmering turqouise. Stay tuned for a post including these and other MAC products as makeup artist Kia Foster Blades gives me a step by step tutorial on how to apply! 




Bronzing primers and powders set summer skin refreshingly aglow, as Extra Dimension Bronzer washes over the face with a subtle gleam and Bronzing Powder sculpts and highlights in gentle pearlized shades with a touch of shimmer. Limited-edition compacts in aquatic teal are elegantly accented with sheer water droplets.

Luminous blush gives skin an extra glow. Available in two finishes - Sea Me, Hear me beige pink and Seaduced at Sea mid-tone neutral plum. 



Lipsticks, glosses and lip pencils come in a spectrum of colours starting with neturals and graduating to richer and more vibrant colours. See the whole collection below.
