Never before have I jumped on a MAC limited edition launch bandwagon. Yes I like their products, but for some reason, none have really grabbed me before, until now.
A couple weeks ago I saw a blogger share a picture of a lipstick they'd bought from the 'Alluring Aquatic' collection, and I honestly though she'd sprinkled water on it to make it more 'Aquatic' Oh how I was wrong!
After seeing a couple of bloggers talk about the 3D droplet effects on the packaging, I was hooked! I had to go into MAC anyway to pick up some giveaway prizes and when I was there I saw the collection. They'd sold out of nearly all of it, apart from the lipstick shade I was most drawn to (Goddess of the sea).
Goddess of the sea is a mauvy plum colour from their cremesheen range, so it's also fairly hydrating. It's not exactly a matte lipstick, but a fairly glossy one. This is only the 3rd MAC lipstick to make it into my collection (others being Rebel and Creme cup). I've only worn it a couple of times, but from when I have worn it, it lasts as well as other MAC lipsticks I've worn, and lasts best when applied with a lip brush (I find this true of all lipsticks), you get a nice defined line that way too. It also has that MAC lipstick smell that you find with all their other lippies, it's a lovely sweet scent.
It's a beautiful lipstick in even-more beautiful packaging - this certainly won't be a piece making the chop when I have a clear-out ever, this is a dressing-table piece that I'll keep well beyond it's time to throw it away.
