Hello and welcome to summer with MAC Alluring Aquatic.
Alluring Aquatic is a collection that is almost sure to set your heart racing, if only for the packaging! It’s all a teal blue metallic color with water droplets on everything that looks completely convincingly real. I am in awe over the look and texture of it, truly.
The collection includes five Lipsticks, five Lipglasses, two Lip Pencils, six Extra Dimension Eye Shadows, two Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners, two Bronzing Powders, two Extra Dimension Bronzers, two Extra Dimension Blushes, three Nail Lacquers, two Brushes and a Makeup Bag.
FYI – My best swatching lens recently broke so I had to use a different lens for this post. Sorry for the not so perfect swatches!
Seduced At Sea Extra Dimension Blush is a medium neutral plum shade.
Lorelei Extra Dimension Eye Shadow is a light golden beige. Very pretty shade, nice pigmentation.
Legendary Lure Extra Dimension Eye Shadow is a deep cerulean blue. So pigmented and amazing!
Siren Song Lipstick is an extremely pale beige (lustre). It doesn’t really even show up on my hand or lips much.
Mystical Lipstick is a medium creamy rose shade (cremesheen).
Neptune is a deep gold/green duochrome shimmer. You mostly see this deep old gold shade but in low light (below) you do see some green flashes. It had a good formula, I used three thin coats.
Overall: Aside from the packaging, which might seem gimmicky to some, but I loved, there are some things here I really liked. The Extra Dimension Eye Shadows in particular are really great. I am going to be checking out more of them when they go on sale. The Extra Dimension Blush was nice and I also really liked Neptune Nail Lacquer. The two Lipstick shades I have don’t blow me away in terms of color or anything though.
Availability: Online at MAC on May 15th, and in stores May 22nd.
