I get so excited for MAC’s summer collections. They are always on point in terms of color, packaging, and general feel. Their summer 2014 release, Alluring Aquatic, is no exception. It is beckoning to me big-time with its siren song! With its sleek metallic blue packaging, sea-inspired names, and deep, complex shades, it’s conjuring up images of mermaids, Neptune, and deep ocean waters. Imagine translating that concept into to a cohesive makeup look. Gorgeous!
You’ve got to take a look at this collection. Trust me, you will fall in love!

Bottom row, from left: Soul Serenade (deep plummy brown), Legendary Lure (deep cerulean–kind of like a cross between deep green and steely blue), Fathoms Deep (dirty gunmetal gray/blue/violet). Note: These shades are incredibly rich and complex in person. It’s impossible to see all their layers on a computer screen; you’ve got to see them in person to appreciate their beauty!
