MAC Alluring Aquatic (Partial) Collection Photos/Swatches/Review

| 14 Comments

So, yesterday the launch of Alluring Aquatic lost me some precious sleep, but it was OH-SO-WORTH-IT! The beautiful packaging with its raised faux droplets of water and the shiny teal chrome packaging just won my heart 1 million times over. I got as many pieces as I saw fit, and I’m going to show them off for you! Don’t forget I had a sneak peek earlier this month with Pet Me, Please. Aside from that lipstick, there were 4 others, from which I selected 3. I picked up 2 Extra Dimension Blushes, 2 Extra Dimension Bronzers, and 2 Extra Dimension Eyeshadows. Shall we get on with it?

Let’s start with the Extra Dimension Bronzers: Aphrodite’s Shell and Delphic.

Aphrodite’s Shell is described as “Golden bronze with a touch of fine shimmer”
Delphic is described as “Soft tan with a touch of fine shimmer”

The Extra Dimension Eyeshadows I purchased were Lorelei (my favorite character in Gilmore Girls, gah!) and Sea Worship. I am a HUGE fan of olive colored eyeshadows, so I had to have Sea Worship, and Lorelei looked like it could double as a highlighter!

Lorelei is described as, “Golden beige”
Sea Worship is described as, “Tarnished olive”

And, the lipsticks! WOW! They were amazing!!!! Let’s look:

AlluringAquaLipsticks

(L-R: Pet Me Please, Mystical, Goddess of the Sea, and Enchanted One)

Pet Me Please can be seen here: HERE

Mystical was the PERFECT “My Lips But WAY, WAY Better” – this cremesheen was comfortable and was pretty opaque, as well! (Wearing Sea Worship on lids; Sea Me, Hear Me on cheeks and contoured with both Bronzers)

Goddess at Sea is the purple of my dreams. This cremesheen packs quite a punch and is definitely a violet dream. It’s so comfortable and almost opaque, as well. There is also a slight shimmer in there! (Sea Worship on lids; Sea Me, Hear Me on cheeks; contour with both Bronzers!)

For Enchanted One, I decided to test out Lorelei as a highlighter! And, I used Seduced at Sea on the cheeks. Everything else remains the same. I almost skipped this one, and 1 minute before it SOLD OUT, I added it to my cart and pulled the trigger. So glad I did – this worked as the perfect neutral for my lips.

And, that completes my Alluring Aquatic Haul! Wasn’t that hefty and GORGEOUS?! Let me leave you all with a few arm swatches, so you can compare/contrast and see them a little better – hard to see what’s on the face even though it’s there!

  1. These look incredible, especially the Mystical lipstick and Seduced at Sea blush! I also read your post about the Pet Me Please lipstick and it looks really beautiful on you, but I don’t think I could pull it off. Great post, and you’ve definitely inspired me to check out the collection the next time I’m in MAC!

    • Thank you! It is a gorgeous collection and the blushes, bronzers are very soft. Even the lipsticks are delicate and sweet, as well. Hope you find something you enjoy! <3

  2. OMG I have been in love with the packaging from the moment I first saw it, and I usually avoid the MAC hype and LEs like the plague (especially because of the SAs) but I have fallen hook, line and sinker for Mystical – it looks fabulous on you and I want it!

  3. Gorgeous collection! I want the Sea Me, Hear Me blush!

  4. Great post, I absolutely love the packaging on this collection x

  5. They’re all so pretty! You make me want to get Delphic too! LOL

  6. oh my….so gorgeous!! I love the packaging too. I think I’ll be needing the blush and lipsticks for sure!
