MAC Submarine Versus Freshwater

I got plenty of emails this weekend asking after MAC Eyeshadow in Submarine and Freshwater. Here are the comparisons if you’re thinking of purchasing Submarine but already own Freshwater!

Freshwater swatches as more of a aqua blue while Submarine is more of a true blue in my opinion!

Hope this helps!


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.

    Oh er, missus.

    This look is lovely on you. Yeah! I have freshwater, so at least I can skip on Submarine. Dontcha think MAC has loads of similar-ish kinda shades?

    P.S. Madam has not let me know yet which Dr Who DVD it is you want from!

    hey girlie!

    Thank you kindly 🙂 Freshwater swatches more aqua while Submarine is truer blue!

    Yes and no. I know so many people bitch about MAC having similar shades but I have tons of the eyeshadows and I ALWAYS find little differences in each release. So I don’t normally rant about similar shades as most times the little differences appease me 😉

    OH YES YES! I will 🙂 Tis the LE edition! Also need an action figure set. So will let you know! Been so busy lately it completely went out of my head!

    i thought myself that freshwater looked quite different from submarine, so I got submarine. But i’m gonna return it anyway because I realised today I have a similar shade from NYX.

    hi ‘ * : . b | u 3 . : * ‘!

    NYX has alot of similar blues as mac 😉

    Plus you can mix colors anyway to get these. But I still like submarine hehe!
