Hello! It feels like I’ve been waiting forever to post this haul since I had to wait to order a couple things from Nordstrom, but I am REALLY excited about it!! 🙂
MAC devotees may know that their recent collection, Alluring Aquatic, was highly coveted and basically sold out in minutes. I was actually waiting for it to launch, and then I decided forget it and hopped in the shower. Forty minutes later (after showering and getting ready), the collection had launched and nearly everything was sold out! The bronzers were gone, the blushes were gone…then I had a lipstick in my cart and it sold out before I paid. I think this launch may have been as crazy as the Marilyn Monroe collection. It all worked out though, since it helped me figure out what I truly wanted!
Here’s what I ended up with:
127 Brush– I ended up getting both brushes with this collection. I have the 128 brush and really like it, so I had to get the 127. I love the shape of this one too.
233 Brush– This is a dual sided eyeshadow brush. I’ve already used it and am loving it so far.
Silver Sun Extra Dimension eyeshadow. I definitely made the right color choice. I love it!
The makeup bag! Usually I don’t go for bags from MAC, but this one is seriously gorgeous! It’s incredibly soft too.

This bag was perfect for going out of town over the long weekend and fit everything I wanted to take without a problem.
My favorite of this collection is definitely Water Deities lipglass. The MAC formula has changed a bit, and this is a lot less sticky than previous formulas. Also, the color is simply amazing. I ordered a back up, and I NEVER do that with gloss!
Water Deities is a bronzed pink gloss with sparkling pearl. I wish it was permanent!
From Nordstrom, I ordered two items that were already sold out on MAC’s website: Pet Me, Please lipstick and Aphrodite’s Shell Extra Dimension bronzer.
I will probably wear this as a blush more than a bronzer, but I love the texture and finish of the Extra Dimension line. This has a bit of pink to it. I struggled with what bronzer to get, but chose this one since I wanted to wear it as a blush.
Pet Me, Please is a re-released lipstick, and it is a pink frost shade. I like it and am really glad I picked this out of the bunch.
The detail on the packaging is so stunning. I love that it looks wet and the turquoise…you just can’t beat it!
Did you get anything from this collection? As a heads up, a lot of the lipsticks say “Coming Soon” on MAC’s website, so I’m assuming they might release more if you had your eye on them.
My favorites of the bunch are Water Deities and the makeup bag right now, but I haven’t had a chance to use the other items as much just yet. 🙂
