Mac Surf Baby Collection

I ended up getting only 3 4 things this time... a lipstick, an eyeshadows and a bronzer.  I'm starting to shop smarter recently and not just get things because it looks pretty.  This collection is up on the Mac website, so you can look at the rest of the products they have, and the prices.

Swell Baby
This shadow a nice grey shadow with some sparkle in it (the sparkles aren't overwhelming.  It just helps the shadow not look so flat). It is described by Mac as a mid-tone grey. It has a satin finish and it is really pigmented. This is my first grey shadow and I loveee it.  I tried it with NYX Milk jumbo pencil underneath and it looks wonderful. I will try it with a black pencil underneath next time.  I also tried putting Mac's Brun eyeshadow on the crease and it also looked really good. I feel like this shadow can be used in every which way and with different colors and it would still look good. 

Sun Blonde
I decided to get this shadow because the only yellow shadow that I have is Mac Chrome Yellow which is a matte.  Sun Blonde is said to be a frost, even though its not so frosty. It has a nice sheen though.  On the mac website it is described as a dirty yellow gold.  I'm happy that I got it but  I think I could live without it.


Mac describes this as a bright orange coral, but for some reason it swatches more red on my lips.  I wish it was a bit more on the orange side, but it is still a pretty color. It has a cremesheen finish, so it is very creamy and opaque.

Refined Golden Bronzer

This is permanent at Mac, but since i knew i was going to get it regardless, might as well have it in a special packaging.  It'll be easier for me to pick this out when I open my make up drawer.  This is described as a finely spun golden with soft pearl finish.  When i put this on my cheeks i feel as if my face looks more healthy and awake (if that makes any sense to you lol).  I've been more into bronzing my face and/or cheeks more than putting on colors lately and this bronzer will make a nice addition to my collection.
