It's not only a fairly large collection, but I truly love the variety of products and flattering shades it offers. SO perfect for the warmer months!
And can we talk about that packaging? SO fun! I've never seen anything quite like this with the perfect little realistic faux water droplets. The packaging actually looks like it's been splashed with water which is really fun. That combined with the mirrored aqua really makes for something unique and different... and pretty.
MAC Alluring Aquatic

While this a quite sizable collection, I was only sent a fraction of what's available for this one, so be sure to check out my video (linked at the bottom of the post) for more on the rest of the colors and to see these in action!
MYSTICAL mid-tone creamy rose (cremesheen), $17.50
Granted, this isn't a truly unique shade by any means, but it's definitely one that would complement nearly every skin tone. The neutral-lipstick-lover in me was disappointed that I didn't get either of the two more nude shades to try out, but they look gorgeous as well! There are also five absolutely beautiful shades of lipglass that I'm coveting. Must. Stay. Strong...
BRONZING POWDER IN REFINED GOLDEN finely spun golden with soft pearl, $27.
EXTRA DIMENSION BLUSH IN SEDUCED AT SEA mid-tone neutral plum, $27.50
While two bronzers in the collection (Golden, and Refined Golden) are just re-packaged for the collection, they're both great, basic bronzer shades that I would actually suggest picking up (if you need a good bronzer) just for the cute packaging (which I hardly ever suggest doing). It sort of makes sense for a bronzer, being a more summer-inspired design.
The Extra Dimension Blush in Seduced at Sea is a beautiful color. I actually wouldn't describe it as a "plum" when swatched though. It looks more like a soft mauve-rose. I think anyone could pull off that shade. Also, the particular formula of the Extra Dimension Blushes has always been one of my favorites. They're just so smooth with the perfect amount of sheen (not frost).
EXTRA DIMENSION EYE SHADOW IN LEGENDARY LURE deep cerulean, $19.50
While this is a GORGEOUS eye shadow with amazing payoff, I wouldn't describe it as they did as a "cerulean" at all. Not even a deep one. It's more of a cool gunmetal color with the slightest hint of navy.
Finally, the Nail Lacquer...
I'll make it a point to wear this color next, as I just applied the MAC Maleficent lacquer I have from that collection (CHECK OUT THAT POST HERE).
However, I can usually honestly say that these type of shimmery nail lacquers by MAC have a great formula. I'll post it soon on my Instagram!
