MAC Surf Baby Collection Haul

.

I know, I know, i've been slacking on posts, I have SO much to post about too but it's so hard to find the time lately because I have been so busy at work and by the time I get home, all I wanna do is sleep! But I received my MAC Surf Baby goodies in the mail the other day, and finally got around to doing some swatches...I didn't get a lot from this collection; as usual I only ended up getting two lipsticks- "Hibiscus" (cremesheen) and "Mocha" (Satin, and is part of the permanent line) and a back up of "Strange Potion". I originally got it when Venomous Villains came out, but I loved it so much I thought id buy a back-up!

I adore the packaging of this collection, I love how the lipstick tubes remind me of little surfboards, and the Hibiscus flower is a nice touch because I absolutely love Hawaii and it was nice to have a lil something to remind me of my vacation when I went a year ago with my sisters.

The lipsticks are super pretty, I wasn't sure about "Hibiscus" when I ordered it online, I thought it might be too out there for me, but because it's a cremesheen, it's the right amount of color and it's definitely wearable! I think this is definitely a shade anyone can pull of regardless of skintone or complexion. It's just such a pretty coral, reddish color and pairs wonderfully with a neutral eye look.

"Mocha" is part of MAC's permanent line so no need to rush to get it, but I am glad I got this color because I never really paid attention to this color, and it being in this collection really brought it to light. It's a nice medium terracotta brown, has a tinge of orange and red undertones, but it's a really pretty color! I am a sucker for earth tones, and MAC "Cherish" l/s is my all-time favorite everyday lipstick, so "Mocha" is definitely up there at quickly becoming a staple in my bag.

The camera didn't show their true colors :(
