MAC "Hey, Sailor!" Collection - Swatches & a Video

As I do with most new MAC collections, I've received a good bit of items from the new Hey, Sailor! collection from MAC to share with you all.
This is a true Summer collection- from bronzers, bright lip colors, sandy and water-colored eye shadows, to shimmering body oils. It kind of had me when I opened the box. 
While I can appreciate a great collection of brights and extremely "out-there" colors (unique, but may not get much wear out of me), I'm most surprised by collections that truly have something to offer everyone. Trendy and "of the moment", while still looking put-together and grown up. I haven't said that about a MAC collection in a while. 
Out of the items I have in the collection, I was surprised by a few things. Really wearable and gorgeous bronzers I can totally see myself wearing everyday, an amazing (maybe even favorite worthy) blush shade, Suntints (love), and two long-wearing lip liners that are really unique.  
Oh and don't get me started on Seaside Body Oil...  Love.  The key is wearing it outdoors. When the sunlight hits it, it's amazing, people. It's coming to the beach with me in a few weeks for sure. ;)
Of course, out of the items I tried, there was a "miss".  Just one though.  The High-Light Powder in Crew. Just doesn't do it for me and comes off more as a pink rather than a highlight.
 I'll be sure to put stars next to my favorite items from the collection below to make things easier. 

Check out my swatch photos below of my items I have from the collection as well as my video where I give you my first impressions and more thoughts on the products.

xoxo,
Tiffany

  2. Everything looks very beautiful in all kind of skins. I can`t wait to order them. I LOVE THE PIGMENT. however, I have never bought any pigment. I am kind of afraid of not being able to use it as it is supposed to. I have just started buying more make up and trying different products and brands. Any tips on how to use the pigment? Thanks Tiffany!

  6. I can't stop wearing Man Rays. It's fab in this Florida sun. Also Red Racer lipstick is incredible. I got all four lipsticks but should have got another Red Racer backup. Knowing Mac it will soon go into the vault of obscurity only to be repromoted when we least expect it. I tried Crew but I couldnt understand it. Is it a blush? Is it a highlighter? Shrug.

  20. This is really cool! I love when you do links to art stuff.
    On an unrelated note- I was wondering if you have been having problems
    posting links to blogger on facebook. I have been suddenly having trouble
    (and by that I mean it won't do it) and so I looked up some other bloggers
    I read on fb to see if they post links.
    I noticed you have in the past... have you had problems lately?
