MAC To the beach Haul Part 1

mac to the beach
I got some of my MAC goodies from "to the beach" today! I love ordering online because it means I can get it the next day and I don't have to fight my way to get items that sell out quickly. I was so excited about this collection and lemming it for the longest time. I was so happy when I saw it yesterday, I ordered at like 3am and got it today!

They came all warm in the box because it's soo humid and hot today. Now, you are probably wondering why Part 1? It's because I caved and bought Marine Life afterwards. It was out of stock as soon as I saw the collection online on the Canadian site, and then around noon it came back! So I snatched up the sea horse, I couldn't help myself. I also got the cream bronzer as well. So 5 items in total from this collection, for me that's a lot.

Refined Golden Bronzer - I use Golden, which also came out as a re-promote in this collection, pretty much everyday. It's really good for fair skinned girls, but I find it doesn't really show up despite how much you put on. I wanted something darker, so I opted for refined golden. I knew it was coming out with the uber cute packaging in this collection, so I waited and got it. It's a tad darker and shimmery.

Hipness Blush - this is lovely, comes in the puke green packaging, with the cute starfish on the front. It's a pinky peach, no shimmer, just matte.

Lazy Day - is a baby pink lipstick, more beige than Lady gaga lipstick, which I have seen others compare it to, this is not stark like that.

I love the packaging of this collection and can't wait until Part 2 arrives, hopefully tomorrow. If you guys want any swatches or comparisons, please let me know. ;)

not sure if you read my comment, but i called them this morning at 10:30 and asked to put Marine Life powder, lazy day lipsticks, splashing lipglass and hipness blush on hold ! ! ! unfortunately, I wasnt able to get the car to drive there this morning so i had to call instead. hopefully none of the SA's take mine and give it to someone else !!! im surprised yours came SO fast. just like how i ordered shoes yesterday after midnight and got it today ! :)

i really want the refined golden bronzer too but ahhhh!!! i just dont feel like spending more on this collection. i think im just going to find something similar to it at the mac sale for less.

sooo i guess u ordered the marine life too LOLOL...after you said you weren't. i guess temptation really hits us ;)

@eleventhofapril - of course I read your comment, I already replied to it ;)

You could probably get refined bronzer at the warehouse sale, but in the regular packaging since it's a permanent product. I liked it for that packaging and do not have access to the warehouse sale. I totally ordered ML after hearing everyone drooling over it, and it sold out in 2 hours on the us site, that made me want to get it. ;)

@eleventhofapril - congrats on getting ML! I swatched it all, but haven't worn it, I don't wear makeup if I don't leave the house.

Great haul! Hope you get Marine Life soon.

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@naturalchicmakeup - I will be so excited tomorrow, they haven't emailed me to tell me it was out of stock, so I think it made it through.. the seahorse is coming! ;)

i pre-ordered marine life and lazy day from nordstrom but if they still have refined and hipness when i go to pick my order up, i might just get them too! I haven't even gotten marine life yet and i am already scared to use it because it is too pretty.. lol

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@marti - lots of girls bought two, one to use and one to just look at, kinda silly if you ask me, but it does look really pretty. ;)

i got hipness blush too :) but i didnt get any bronzers because they didnt seem too remarkable to me. i skipped out on the marine life too because it seemed too shimmery. glad you got something that a lot of people have been trying to get their hands on though <3

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@ kellyyes - I don't have marine life yet, and I am starting to think that I won't because my package wasn't delivered today from mac and my status online shows as "changed" and there are no changes. Normally I get emailed if something is out of stock, it happened with mac's peppermint patti nail polish too, but this time no email. :( If I don't get it, it's okay, but I will definitely be disappointed.
