MAC To The Beach Collection Review & Swatches! ♥

Photobucket
The MAC To The Beach collection coming up this May has a lot of re-promoted products, and I have a few of them. I know a lot of you may not have these products in your collection yet, and I would like to share a few swatches of what I have so you might have an idea as to which products you should check out in this collection. Personally, I love every single product I have here, and I am happy to consider them as must-haves for the collection. Keep reading for more photos, swatches and comparison swatches! All swatches done on NC30 skin ♥

Swatches:

Thrills lipstick, Humid, eyeshadow, Refined Golden bronzer, Hipness blush

And in different lighting- you can see the shimmers in the products here.

Some people might be worried as Hipness blush is considered a 'frost', but its not very frosty at all. In fact, Dainty mineralized blush has a lot more shimmers as you can see in the swatch below:

Dainty blush, Hipness blush

Coral lips are a trend this summer, and here are some coral lipsticks I've compared with Thrills:

Fresh Salmon, Lollipop Loving, Thrills


Thrills is a frost, Lollipop Loving is a glaze, whereas Fresh Salmon is a lustre. All three have gold shimmers though, more obvious in the swatch below:

Refined Golden bronzer and Humid eyeshadow are in the permanent line. They are really pretty to have though. However, I haven't been using my Humid eyeshadow as much as I should.

I reviewed the 130 brush here. I believe its a permanent brush in the US, but its limited edition in the UK. ^_^

I hope this post was useful dolls! Are you planning to get anything from this collection?? ♥

  4. Thank you for the swatches!! I've been dying to know if I would like the bronzer, I defiantly think it would work on me, the blush I think I'm going to have to see in person to see if I have anything similar before buying.

  12. I have these products too. Thanks for posting the comparisons. I don't think I'll be getting anything from the collection -- in fact I think the packaging is a bit tacky! Probably good for my wallet that I'm not excited about this collection.
