MAC ALLURING AQUATIC (Lipstick Swatches)

MAC Cosmetics recently released  a new collection called Alluring Aquatic. I’m not a collector of Mac or any kind of makeup. I believe you should only buy what you’re going to use. I do have a good amount of makeup, but I can assure you everything I buy I do use, or if I don’t end up using I give away to my cousins. Back to the collection, I had been looking at the leaked photos of this collection for months and I just couldn’t say no to it. This collection released five lipsticks and out of five, I picked up four.The packaging is the most gorgeous thing I have ever  laid eyes on.

Even the lipstick bullets contained water drop effects. Oh and the bullets were also a metallic aqua color.

 

 

Lipstick Swatches:

Enchanted One 

Mac Alluring Aquatic Enchanted One Lipstick BY: Ami Garza

Enchanted One is a matte nude lipstick (the only matte lipstick in this collection). This lipstick is compared to Velvet Teddy and Kinda Sexy from Matte (which I also own)

Left To Right: Velvet Teddy, Kinda Sexy and Enchanted One

In my opinion they’re all very different yet similar nude shades. Enchanted One seems like a softer Velvet Teddy and a little less pink than Kinda Sexy.

Pet Me, Please

Pet Me, Please Lipstick by Ami Garza

Pet Me, Please is a Frost lipstick in the Aquatic Collection. Okay, so Pet Me, Please looked like an amazing color on a random girl I saw on Instagram who swatched it. I’m a medium skin tone, and the random Instagram girl had fair skin. I wanted to try it on my medium skin tone in hopes it would look okay on me. I don’t adore this lipstick on my skin tone. I think this lipstick looks amazing on fair skin tones. I’ve seen dupes of this lipstick before it came out with mac. I owned a very similar Revlon lipstick which I can’t remember what it’s called. Anyway, I wouldn’t recommend this lipstick for medium to dark complexions. It is wearable for medium to dark skin tones if you line it up with a liner and make the lipstick a bit darker.

Mystical

This picture doesn’t give the lipstick its proper color. This lipstick looks more Mauve in real life. I didn’t think this lipstick was going to be my favorite, but surprisingly it was. This lipstick is a Cream-sheen.

Goddess Of The Sea

Again, the color in the picture doesn’t give it justice. The color is real life is more like a plum color. This lipstick sort of reminds me of Heroine, Heroine and Goddess Of The Sea could be cousins in the lipstick world. GOTS is a cream-sheen lipstick.

These lipsticks were released about two days ago in Mac Counters, Nordstorm and In Macy’s Mac Stores.  REMINDER: These lipsticks are LIMITED EDITION which means you can only grab these while supply lasts.  Hope you guys enjoyed this post, if you did make sure to like this post!
