Mac To The Beach haul part 1

I ordered my favourites from Mac's To The Beach collection on Tuesday immediately after they were available online, and my little black box has just arrived with the following goodies: 2 x Marine Life Highlight powder Hipness blush Thrills lipstick Splashing lipglass Yes, I had to get two of the highlight powder because otherwise I just wouldn't use it. I feel it's just too pretty to destroy, and I'm quite happy to pay £19.50 for another one. Hey, I paid for two of Chantecaille's Protected Paradise palettes (both face and eyes) and they are a lot more expensive (£80 each!). I know, I have a problem, lol! After the initial confusion about release dates, I can now confirm that To The Beach will be arriving on the counters next Thursday (13th May), however, the collection is available online if you can't wait until then (the highlight powder is sold out already though!). As usual, free standard delivery on order over £50! I will go to my counter on Thursday to check out the rest of the collection, I'm pretty sure I will pick up another lipstick and/or lipglass (or two!) and maybe an eyeshadow as well. See photos of my goodies below!

  10. Lol, reading beauty blogs is definitely one reason why my collection has grown to this size! :)

    Hope you get to buy one of them, have you checked MUA for a swap maybe?

  11. i swear - have not seen bigger collection than yours anywhere and i spend vast majority of my time going through beauty blogs ;-) plus your collection is the most to my taste, i love dior eyeshadows and meteorites.

    ahh i havent checked MUA i will definately have a look there if my friend is unable to get me one, brilliant idea, thank you :-)

  12. Do you think Hipness is worth getting if I already have Instant Chic?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi, I think it is, but in all fairness I don't think Hipness is that much different from Instant Chic. It is brighter and pinker, and I would probably choose it over Instant Chic myself. Please check out my new post for comparison swatches, hope it helps.

  14. wow you got these so fast! to the beach just posted on the canadian website tonight and marine life is sold out already. I think everyone is nuts over this, but it's just overspray. It's pretty to look at though.
