My Mac Surf Baby! haul and swatches

Mac's summer collection Surf Baby! launched last Thursday and I picked up a few things that I'd like to share with you. I only got a few things which is unlike me, but a lot of products in this collection are bronzers and I'm not really into them, so I didn't pick any up. In fact I've just realised that I haven't even used the cream bronzer that I picked up last year with To The Beach, so I think I'm okay for bronzers! I was more interested in the colour part of the collection, so got both of the crushed metallic pigment stacks, an eyeshadow, the gorgeous blush with the gold flower overlay, an eyeliner, a lipstick and an a lipglass.


My favourite item from the collection is definitely the blush, not just because it's so pretty to look at, but it is also a lovely peachy coral colour. I haven't worn it yet as I'm not ready to mess up the flower detail, but I did swatch it (see below). I also like Hibiscus lipstick, it's a nice redish coral. Another thing that made me go wow is the light green shade in Surf The Ocean pigment stack and also the dark from shade in Summer Stash. All in all I am very happy with everything I got. I also like the packaging, I think it's cheerful and reminds me of surf boards (I'm sure that was intentional), and the flower detail is cute.

In case you haven't picked up everything you wanted from this collection, Debenhams are offering 10% off ALL beauty products and 750 bonus points if you spend over £40, so now is the time to shop!
