So, if you’ve followed me for awhile, you know that I’m crazy about teal and all of its similar hues AND maroon and all of its similar hues! So, when I saw that MAC was releasing an Alluring Aqua Collection, you know I was super excited. This collection has yet to release. I believe the release date is May 22, but don’t quote me on that because MAC can change release dates online and in-store, so subscribe to their emails to make sure. I happened to get my mitts on this early thanks to a friend of mine who knows I’m crazy for MAC, so first off, a BIG thank you to them! 😉
This is one of the lipsticks from the collection, and I believe it is also a repromote, Pet Me Please! The packaging on this is unbelievable! It’s a teal chrome/mirror finish with “raindrops” on it. I had it set aside on my countertop, and my husband picked it up and asked, “Why is this wet?!” And, he quickly realized it wasn’t real droplets, and was taken aback, “THAT is cool!” It sure is, Hubster. I can honestly say I am madly in love with this packaging and will be getting A LOT from this collection!
Let’s ooh and aah over the packaging, shall we?
So, this lipstick is a frost and is a pale pinkish beigey/silvery frost, and it’s lovely. I think it’s quite drying – I’ve been wearing it for an hour now. Now, most frosts do have a slight drying effect, so make sure you know what lipsticks suit you and if you can handle the finish.
And, of course, I paired this lipstick with a teal, silver and golden look! Blush is MAC Petal Power from the Fantasy of Flowers Collection and contour is MAC Pure Sculpture. (I will do a review on those (mainly Pure Sculpture as it is supposed to be permanent!) soon – so watch for that!) Mascara is Maybelline Teal Appeal.
Will you be waiting for this collection? I know I sure will be!! Remember, I will update the post as time gets closer to the release. I do believe it is May 22, but these dates can be tentative.
Gift from friend. All opinions are honest and my own.
