Buzzworthy: MAC's Surf Baby Collection

I'm such a sucker for MAC's summer collections. I fell in love with last year's To the Beach collection and Surf Baby did not disappoint. Surf Baby's official launch date is May 26 and is an array of bronze, sea blues and greens and coral colors for eyes, cheeks, nails and lips. The standout player of this collection has to be the beautiful My Paradise cheek color, an orange coral blush with golden overspray in the shape of a hibiscus flower. I also picked up one of the stackable pigments in Surf the Ocean, four pigments in golden bronze, dark blue, silver and sea foam green. I absolutely love the colors of these crushed pigments. The color payoff is remarkable. Lastly, I got the bronzing cream stick in Billionaire Bronze. This stick is a dark matte brown which is perfect for contouring and warming up complexions, even for darker tones. Pictured below are swatches of my new goodies. I have a gut feeling I will be picking up more from this collection as the days pass. What are you picking up from MAC's Surf Baby collection? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  12. Hey girl, haven't seen you around Blogger for a while but just wanted to say I really appreciate the sweet comment you left me on my blog. I also wanted to say my MAC stuff finally came in if you wanted to check it out. Sadly my followers widget was broken that day, so I don't think you were able to follow--so I just wanted to drop by and let you know my Surf Baby stuff came in.

    Oh and also, My Paradise looks way better on you. :( I'm so jealous!
