MAC Alluring Aquatic | Mystical & Sea Me, Hear Me


When I saw the promotional images for MAC Alluring Aquatic a few months ago, I knew I'd be making some purchases. I don't think I've ever seen them release a collection that has been so beautifully packaged before! I even prefer it to the Venomous Villains packaging (don't shoot me). I've picked up two products so far - the cremesheen lipstick in Mystical and the Extra Dimension blusher in Sea Me, Hear Me. On first impressions, I couldn't be more in love with them. 

Mystical is a rose pink and a very wearable shade that I think would suit many. Admittedly you could probably find a more affordable dupe on the high street, but the texture is heavenly. It glides onto the lips with no tugging, and stays put for a good few hours before fading away. It's a pretty sheer lipstick, and because of this it appears differently depending on how pigmented your lips are. 

Sea Me, Hear Me is pretty much the blusher version of Mystical; a rose pink. This is my first ED blusher from MAC, and I wasn't sure what to expect. They're defined as liquid-powder blushers, though I do think they have a slight gel texture to them. It does require a bit of a heavy hand for colour to show up, but I prefer that as I can sometimes get a bit blusher happy. Sea Me, Hear Me gives a lovely natural glow to the skin and I have a feeling I'll be using this daily for a little while now.

Although I personally am smitten with the two bits I bought, if you're not keen on the packaging the Alluring Aquatic collection may not be for you. I intend to buy another cremesheen lipstick in Goddess of the Sea when it launches in Debenhams today, though!

Have you bought anything from this collection?

  3. The packaging of this collection is gorgeous! Is it bad to buy something based purely on the packaging? God, I hope not! Love the look of that lipstick too though! Hopefully these come to Australia in the foreseeable future ...

  8. That packaging is like no other; M.A.C really got it right with this one. Admittedly so I wasn't even aware this collection was out yet, and as much as I like the blush you picked up I might have to pass.

  13. I love the packaging of this whole collection and wish I could have it in my possession, but nothing looked like it would suit me too well so I decided to not pick anything up! The lipstick looks amazing on you though!
