Upcoming from MAC: Neo Sci-Fi and Naughty Nauticals

We haven’t even made it through Heatherette and already the next color stories are pouring in!

Janice and her team at Specktra keep us abreast of all the latest and the greatest! What would we do without her?

MAC Neo-Sci Fi

To be released with this collecion:

5 lipsticks
4 lip glosses
4 eye shadows
3 lip liners
1 mascara (plush lash)
2 blushes
4 nail lacquers

Neo Sci-Fi looks very C-Shock like to me and I’m absolutely dying to see these colors! Excited as the Muse?

MAC Naughty Nauticals

To be released with this collecton:

4 lipsticks
4 lipglosses
5 eye shadows
4 pigments
2 technakohl eyeliners

I’m just as excited about this release! I’m hopeful we get some aquas and sea greens with this particular collection!

MAC is moving along fast and May will be a busy, busy month for color stories! Start saving your pennies ladies!

What collections are you excited about for the Summer?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Hi! I got here from some Temptalia (i think) and i’m blown away by how nice you are! I usually find beauty bloggers a tad bit stand-offish, but you are such a warm bundle of joy! Thank you for making this a good day for me, i had such a laugh reading through some of your posts, you engage the reader very well! Here’s to many more happy reads 🙂

    Aarti from Singapore! (:

  • the Muse

    hi aarti!

    First let me say how happy I am you’re here 😉 I have many, many, many beautiful Singaporean readers!!!!

    Secondly, aw thanks *sniff* you’ve made me blush 😉 I really appreciate that. This blog is definately a labor of love and I’ve met so many wonderful people while doing it so I can’t help but feel like I am friends with each reader that pops on to say hello everyday!

    Many many many thanks! You’ve really made my day with your beautiful comment!

    I hope you’ll stop by and visit often with me! I look forward to getting to know you!

    and thanks again!

    Many hugs from the Muse!

  • loey

    Moi is from Singapore too! 😀
    (And I happen to have a friend called Aarti too!)
    Anyway, I hope there will be dark blues with nautical that are good textures (VP would be good) because the dark blue in the quad released for Fafi wasn’t nice.
    MAC is making us poor, I swear.

    Anyway, yes, I love reading your beauty blog!

  • the Muse

    hey loey!

    maybe aarti is your mate 😉 it’d be a damn small world if she was wouldn’t it?!

    I hope there are dark blues too but something with good blend. I have a hard time blending MAC dark blue colors. The blue with fafi and cloudburst with heatherette I find really hard to blend!

    god yes. We just won’t eat we’ll live for MAC 😉

    Thanks hun!

  • PaoPao

    I just can’t wait for the absolutely gorgeous red lipstick from the Naughty nauticals collection!!! And the pigments (hope they’re all new shades)!!!

    I don’t like the Neo-Sci-Fi collection very much… I’ll save for the nauticals hehe!


  • couturesista

    Good Morning MUSE and MUSE Lovers,

    I’m excited about the nautical collection I love the dark blue shades. The neon collection maybe cute for the spring in summer, expecially the bright nail colors!!

    I may need to ask my boss for a raise soon! Because of my beauty haul yesterday, I’ll be eating ramen noodles for the next week. Oh well at least I’ll look hot doing so!! TTFN

  • Allysia-May

    Hey hun,

    You know what? I’m so over MAC! That’s it, won’t be bothering to rush down to see any of their collections as i’ve decided they’re certainly not for me. Too bright for my liking.

    I usually just like the simplicity of mascara, eyeliner, blush and maybe the odd eyeshadow that comes in deep tones. I unfortunately won’t be getting excited for these new releases. But then, that’s great for my wallet.

  • Sminkan

    MAC Naughty Nauticals could probably get my attention this summer. I haven’t really dropped my jaw in awe for a while, but now I do feel a little tingling sensation and a sudden urge to throw my money about at the MAC counter. Red lips and pale skin is lovely! Blues are always good! And I too hope for some greenish colours.

  • the Muse

    hi PaoPao.

    I must admit I am very excited about the red lippie. I really love reds lately!

    I hope the piggies are new. Let’s send some force MAC’s piggies…new piggies..we need new piggies….teehee!

    the neo sci fi has identical colors to c-shock..hmm…but the good news is at least they are bold 🙂

    Hugs back to you lovie!

    Happy Easter!

  • the Muse

    hi couturesista!


    I hope the blues are good for blending! I’m excited 😉

    I’m actually excited about the nail varnish too. I’m not one for nail stuff but it looks really nice!

    LOL!!!!!!! Well I can think of worst things then ramen 😉 hehe!

    We seriously need 2nd and 3rd jobs to make more money for mac crack 😉

    Happy Easter!

  • the Muse

    hey Allysia-May!

    I WISH I could say I was off mac but it hasn’t really happened for me. The colors are excellent the price is right (at least for me in the US) and the quality is amazing.

    I’m surprised you feel they are too bright. You’re a very beautiful chocolate shade and some of these colors would look outstanding on your skin tone lovie.

    Especially purples. They’d be so flattering on you!

    I wish I could keep things simple but I’m always experimenting with ridiculous amounts of color. 😉

    But you’re right it’s better for your wallet! Plus it’s bloody expensive across your side of the pond. The prices are jawdropping 🙁

    Even if you’re off the mac train I still lurve you 😉

    *hugs* Happy Easter!

  • the Muse

    hey Sminkan how are you love? I owe you an email and will reply very soon! *hugs*

    YAY! I’ve created a few lemmings for you!

    Red Lips are definately get alot of my attention lately as you know 😉

    I am really, really, really yearning for some greens to go with all the blues!

    We can create some killer looks 😉

  • MandyPandy

    Neo-Sci-Fi? Lt. Uhura is not going to be happy about this! They done stole’d her look!

  • Aarti

    Hehe Muse (is that your real name btw? very cute ;)), i think we’ll get along very well!

    Oh and Loey, what a coincidence that you have a friend called Aarti! I’ve only met one other person in singapore with my name, it’s that unusual! Lol, fyi, i’m of asian indian origin, but born & brought up in Singapore 😀 It’s a lovely place, you should visit it Muse! You have many many fans here i’m sure 😛


  • the Muse

    LOL LMAO! LOL! Next week you’ll see Nichelle sueing MAC for copyright infringement on her looks 😉

    beam me up scottie!

  • the Muse

    hiya again Aarti!

    hehe no 😉 I’m actually Isabel or izzy 😉 the Muse is just an alias 😉 hehe that’d be interesting and funny if it was my name!

    I think we will too lovie!

    of what sort of indian descent aarti? aside from Asian, Indian would be another of my cultural passions 🙂

    I’d love to visit! We can have a fan base gathering hehehe!

    So many people I absolutely love live in Singapore. One in particular who’s a very good friend is Iris from Rouge Deluxe dunno if you read her blog 😉

    Many hugs!
