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.

  4. This is so pretty, I really wish I'd picked one of these up, guessing I'm too late now though!
    I'm really shocked that you only have three Mac lipsticks, for some reason I assumed you would have loads! x

    1. I don't think it's too late - I picked it up from the free standing store in the Capital Centre just over a week ago :D Nope, I have loads of lipsticks, but only 3 MAC :)

  9. GAHHH it's such a pretty colour! And as for the packaging! I think that's the nicest limited edition packaging that MAC has ever come out with!

  11. I really wanted something from this collection just because the packaging looks so amazing but I was disappointed to find that none of the shades really stood out for me. This was the lipstick shade that appealed to me the most and when I swatched it in store last week I discovered it is a lovely shade. But I was good and resisted buying it (and it most likely would have been out of stock anyway I expect) x

    1. Fair enough - I guess it can't appeal to everyone :) You did really well to stay strong and not buy anything, I didn't have that will power :D

  12. This is beautiful on you, I really do regret not picking up one of the lipsticks from this line.
