To The Beach

I thought I would share about the To The Beach release party I attended last night. There is nothing much better than an evening looking at makeup, sipping a lime cocktail, and getting to check out some eye candy. Ha! Leave it to MAC to hire two young cuties to pass out drinks and appetizers (one looked like he stepped right out of the pages of Twilight as a werewolf!), not to mention the other hottie who was posing in board shorts and nothing else. :)

Aside from the eye candy, the release was better than I thought. I am pale…like Twilight vampire pale…so I usually shy away from beachy, summery collections. But this one impressed me. I picked up the tealish liner Float on By – gorgeous. The olive one is pretty too, but I don’t wear olive enough to warrant the purchase. I loved Sweet and Punchy e/s, but opted to not get it as it looked a bit like gangrene on my skin. I also have Humid and Shimmermoss already…worth it if you don’t have them. I got Temperature Rising lip liner – totally not something I would usually wear, but all of the MAs were wearing it, even the pale ones. Some wore it as lipstick alone, others added on the glosses to change the shade. I picked up Flurry of Fun lipglass. It is such an amazing color I could not pass up. Kind of a tangerine with these wonderful teal flashes of glitter. I can never pass up the MAC colors that show iridescent flashes! I'll come back and add some photos...

It was also my first time checking out the Superglasses. LOVE! Can’t wait to wear one today. I got Cherry Electric, Sugar Overload, and Gift Wrap. I had picked out Sugar Overload and two others prior to seeing them, so was surprised that I switched picks once I saw them. Usually all of the swatches online helps me to pick beforehand, but seeing them in person is totally different. Someone said Sugar Overload is like Sugarrimmed, but it is not. Sugarrimmed is blue glitter, where as Sugar Overload is almost orangey-bronzey. Gift Wrap is this gorgeous melony color – I had gotten my nails done a week ago in a similar color and am now obsessed with it for summer. Cherry Electric is a yummy cherry shade that is not too pink, not orange. I was really hoping to like the grape colored one, but no go. Someday I will find the grape colored lipstick I have been waiting for. The closest I have is a Lipmix, but it is too sheer to wear alone.

So…hope you all enjoyed my ramblings! I have been taking a makeup hiatus this past year, so maybe now I will get back in to it and post to you guys with more frequency!
