I know that I've shared with you a massive MAC haul last week, but with the new Alluring Aquatic collection hitting the stores on Thursday I simply couldn't resist adding two lipsticks. The inspiration behind the collection are "Sirens of the deep inspire an aquascape of shades, as waves of tarnished olive, seafoam and darkened plum surrender to water’s enticing spirit". I admit I was mainly drawn to the beautiful and completely unique limited edition teal packaging, dramatically accented with sheer water droplets. I can confirm that the rumours are true - the water droplets are 3D and accentuate the theme of the collection perfectly. They bullets are just so pretty and I love having them on display.
After much pondering and swatching all five shades in Selfridges, I've settled for Pet Me, Please and Goddess of the Sea. Pet Me, Please is a light shimmering mauve which can be perfect worn alone to add a hint of shimmer to the lips or even on top of a statement shade to give it extra shine and tone it down slightly. Goddess of the Sea couldn't be more different - a dark vibrant violet has a cremesheen finish - much favoured by me. It's a perfect night-time lipstick shade, so I am very happy to made these two choices which will definitely go with my on my holidays.
Did you get anything from the Alluring Aquatic collection?
