MAC Surf Baby Has Finally Hit Our Shores!


Finally, MAC's summer collection has arrived in Asia... at the end of summer and just when it's starting to pour.  Oh the irony of it all!

It was just released yesterday and I was able to test everything... so bright and pretty!  The items they didn't have were the Crushed Metallic Pigment Stacks and the Suntint Lip Balms.  A bit of a bummer because I actually wanted the pigments.  They said it (the pigments) will be released on a later date.  I didn't ask about the Suntints.

Anyway,  I've been lusting after the My Paradise Cheek Powder ever since I saw the sneak peek.  Obviously, it's something I've been looking forward to.  I must have passed by the MAC counter five times since just to ask if Surf Baby's out. 

When I swatched it, it was all I expected it to be - a loud coral color that will make your cheeks stand out.  Even without the gold overspray, it's still pretty.  For those with lighter compexion, it provides a bright pop of color and I think it would also look beautiful on those with darker tones as the color is deep.

To be honest, I don't know what I'm going to do with this or how I'm going to pull it off.  I just have a weakness of bright colors in general.  Oh the pretty colors!

Th cheek powder comes in a compact that's a big as MAC's pressed powder foundation.

On my way to the mall, I told myself that I would not buy anything.  And I left with an additional item:  a Lustre Lipstick in Naturally Eccentric.  At first I wasn't sure about it but I found myself holding it after every swatch.  The reason?  I've been looking for a really pale lipstick that would go well with the Sugarpill eyeshadows I purchased earlier this year.  This could possibly be it.  We'll find out soon enough.


Other products in this collection that I liked but didn't get were:

  • Surf USA & Sun Blonde Eyeshadow - Because I already own colors similar to those
  • Short Shorts Eyeshadow - Because I'm not sure what to do with it.
  • Hibsicus Lipstick - A bright red coral color that's really pretty.  I would have bought it except I have too many bright lipsticks already.  We'll see... I need to think it over.
  • Gilded White Powerpoint Pencil - An off-white shimmery eye pencil.  If I didn't have my Paul & Joe Eye Liner, I would have gotten this!

Let me know if you want me to do a Swatch & Tell.  I just need to use this for some time so that I can provide a proper review.

Is there anything you want from the Surf Baby collection?  Share!
