MAC Hey, Sailor! Feeling Fresh Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

Hey, Sailors!

Ready for MAC Summer 2012? It’s coming atcha soon. I wasn’t too excited about it myself, I feel like the nautical theme is a little repetitive but I’m sure many folks are hyped over the collection.

I have a few products available that I’ll be swatching for you today.

Let’s start with MAC Feeling Fresh Eyeshadow.

Take a peek!

Feeling Fresh Eyeshadow is a frost finish but applies pretty nicely. I’m typically frightened of such a finish but I had no issues with this one. The formula is on par with MAC’s older shadow releases (I’ve been known to complain that MAC eyeshadow formula is a bit weak lately) and has a smooth, easy to apply formula that runs a little drier but applies easily with primer.

The bright grass green shade is quite lovely and will pair up nicely with blues, aquas, and/or golds.

For the packaging MAC went with a nautical striped themed. I’m a little impartial to it but it is cute and fitting for this collection.

Overall, Feeling Fresh is a lovely bright green. I have a ton of greens in my collection already but most are darker and more forest-y. This is a very nice grassy green for Summer.

Will you be hauling it?

    I just ended up getting Jaunty eyeshadow and Crew highlighter (but blush for me). Everything else was alright but not very exciting/unique/useful for me, and I am all about useful for cosmetics (or I would have gotten Feeling Fresh) 😛

    I love green shades! Or the color green in general and after years of sticking with mostly nudes (brown/taupe) colors, I’m finally venturing out into the world of color!

    I recently purchased a green shade from UD that I love (in Kush) and I’ve been eyeing this color as well (no pun intended!! xD). I do need some darker/forest-y greens though.

    Green is my favourite colour and I’ve had this in my basket for a few days on the MAC website, I think I’ll be picking it up alongside the Launch Away! blush I saw in your other post 😀 Yay!
