MAC Temperature Rising Collection- SWATCHES & Thoughts

MAC Temperature Rising
Available May 23, 2013 where MAC products are sold

I'm bringing you all info and my thoughts on this upcoming MAC collection a wee bit early... Mainly because that's what I'd prefer as a reader. I promise you guys, I try to share MAC collections as soon as I get them. Sometimes the products arrive to me a little late and it can make it a bit difficult for you all to plan your purchases and see what you may be interested in getting your hands on before the release. 
Because let's face it, it's absolutely NO fun watching me carry on about how great a collection is, meanwhile, all the products you want are sold out.
So I hope you guys enjoy my thoughts and my swatches for this collection. 
The idea is very deep, sweltering shades that shimmer and shine for Summer. Some of the colors feel a bit Fall-like to me, but they're gorgeous nonetheless. There are definitely some hits and misses in my opinion, so be sure to check out my video at the bottom of the post where I show the products and talk about them in a bit more detail and share with you all my favs and not-so-favs.
Hope you guys enjoy!

  2. I think the packaging looks very pretty and I want to check these out in person!
    The Temperature Rising quad looks interesting but after you said you would probably skip it, I need to swatch them first. In the Bare My Soul quad, When in Rio looks brown on the swatch. Is that just my monitor? It appears green in the quad.
    Soft Serenade looks like a color for me, it might be my must-have for the whole collection.

  3. Want to see how the nailpolish comes out!
