Hey there!

This is just a quick and dirty review of MAC’s new color called In The Buff, which is part of the To The Beach collection. There is another color called Scorcher which I think is a coral creme. It didn’t appeal to me so I didn’t buy it.

Here goes!

In The Buff

In The Buff is a camel/putty colored creme. Some people were calling it avocado green, which I don’t agree with at all. It much more camel, or brownish to me than green, but I do see some green in it. Someone mentioned that this might be similar to Kelly’s Green from BB Couture, but as you can see here, they are very different. Mine is what I think of as a true avocado green. I really liked this when I saw it online on other people, but I have to say I’m not really loving it so much on myself. I thought it would be this great, “weird-ugly” color, but it turns out with my skin it just kinda looks ugly. Sigh. Maybe I’ll give it a go later, but right now I’m not feeling it.

The formula was really nice, I think they are finally getting the hint! It went on very smooth in thin even coats, and I only needed two for full opacity.

How are you feeling about this one?
