MAC Surf Baby Collection

When anyone mentions the new MAC Surf Baby Collection I start singing Beach Baby by First Class but replace “beach” with “surf”…..retro song moment sorry!

But MAC Surf Baby launches soon, May 26th to be exact. It’s an exciting time because I commonly associate MAC’s first Summer Collections with the start of the actual Summer season!

Looks like we can relive Summer 2010 with the MAC My Paradise Blush, looks kinda like MAC Marine Life, you’ll see what I mean after the jump. Keep in mind what a smashing success Marine Life was so hopefully May Paradise doesn’t sell out super quickly!

 

 

Jump!

    So what do you think?

    The retro California beach packaging is kinda cool eh? If you’re a native and a surfer I imagine the collection will really make your Summer. Colors look friendly enough, I’m partial to peaches and corals. I really want the stacks but I’m trying to keep in mind how I haven’t used my Spring Forecast ones as much as I would have liked.

    Thoughts?

      I’M TOTALLY LOVING THIS COLLECTION. THIS IS THE ONLY MAC COLLECTION I WILL BE EXITED ABOUT FOR A WHILE. i JUST FEEL THAT EYESHADOW WISE THEY KEEP COMING OUT WITH THE SAME REPETITIVE COLORS. LOL. BUT ASIDE FROM THAT i WILL PROBABLY BE PICKING UP ONE OF EVERYTHING. LOOKS LIKE SOME OF MY MONEY i WAS SAVING FOR IMATS WILL BE GOING TO THIS COLLECTION. oH, AND BY THE WAY i REALLY LOVE THE PACKAGING, ITS THE BEST PART OF THE COLLECTION SO FAR. 😀

    • Eve

      These are perfect summer colors! Really makes me think of the beach!
      On another note, MAC’s promo pics usually freak me out. The no eyebrow look does not look good on ANYONE!

    • Allli

      oooh! loving the packaging – ugh, I’m such a sucker for packaging…it’s a problem! heehee Think I’m really digging the blush and the pinky lipglass!

    • tee

      I NEED the blush and Good Lovin’ lipglass!

      Missed the marine life collection last year 🙁 Hope I wont miss this one again this year 😀

    • Cj

      Does anyone else feel like a kid in a candy store everytime a new Mac collection comes out? The white champagne eyeshadow looks like it’s gonna be the perfect inner corner/brow bone highlight, and I’m really curious about the gold-go-lightly careblend powder. I completely adore the regular version, I just wish they would of released a picture of it lol

    • Ludwig

      I now know what I will be asking for for my birthday – the ENTIRE collection!! Wow, I haven’t been this excited about a MAC collection in so long! : D

    • Amy

      MAC Surf Baby My Paradise Blush looks gorgeous, but the gold is most likely gonna be just an over spray 🙁
      Swell Baby looks amazing too, I feel mac doesn’t have many grays, they more silver metal tones.

    • Nunuiviet

      Love the packaging but not really impressed by the colors… The blush is similar to the coral blush of last summer collection but there’s a flower imprint. I think I’ll pass this collection and better splurge in the quite cute collection tehheeeeeee 🙂

    • Heather

      I don’t like the packaging..will be interested in seeing swatches though

    • ssaem

      OH MY GAHD, I WANT. I got into MAC late so I missed the To The Beach collection. I really want a handful of these, but I’ll wait and see when swatches come out first. 😉

    • The Beauty Alchemist

      I never used my pigment stacks much either and I really like them. Why are we not using them ??? Stoked for the return of Suntints. I love them. Fun packaging here. MAC summer is always a fav.

      • the Muse

        that’s what I am saying?! too much makeup too little time girl! MAC Sum is def a good time!

    • Joanna

      I’m curious to know if the My Paradise blush is the same size as Marine Life (like Mineralize Skin Finishes).

      If it is, I’m buying it for sure!

    • anna

      MAC Surf Baby Studio Careblend Pressed Powder <— what is that?!? I'm excited to see it!

    • Phyrra

      I’m happy to see Strange Potion promoted again. It’s lovely. I really love the look of Hibiscus.

    • Courtney

      Maybe it’s just me, but the model’s eyes are totally weirding me out. Maybe it’s the bleached brows? Don’t get me wrong, she’s beautiful, but the look in her eyes reminds me of a human trafficking victim on Law & Order or something. Creepidy. Love the collection though.

    • Josie

      I’ve been dreaming about that blush for 2 weeks now since i saw a pic! I read there is 2 blushes in this colletion, another called Beach Girls which was the name that went with the pic you have but i noticed a lot of blogs have changed it as well. I’m a sucker for corals so this is #1 on my list! I also want Good Lovin’ lipgloss. The rest of the collection is kinda blah to me. Some of those shades (like the dark lipstick) don’t scream summer. Strange Potion looks really nice & a little different by looking at the pic from the VV one. It looks like a more juicier shade, where SP from VV was more pink. And can you believe my SP is still in a box? Thanks for posting!

    • deb

      Ehh, I totaly went overboard with last summers collection so this one isn’t as exciting to me. I now have Beach Baby stuck in my head, thanks Muse!

    • neutralgirl

      I really want the saffron and sun blonde shadows. What is a suntint?

    • Kristen

      I really want the blush! Im already planning to drop a small fortune on Quite Cute so I dont know how much I’ll really buy from this

      • Rosemary

        I am so glad that I am not the only one to think “freak-on-a-leash” regarding the promo pic. I am glad they are embracing a non-traditional take on “beauty” (barf!)

    • Quinctia

      That pic!

      Go to the beach…WITH REAGAN FROM THE EXORCIST.

      It’s not the model, it’s the filter they smacked on the picture.

    • Casey

      Ugh, I hate the packaging. It reminds me of tacky Hawaiian souvenirs.
      I’m LOVING that blush though!

    • Stellar

      Omg! Cute packaging!

      I have been seeing a lot of Hawaiian prints lately…

    • Ricci

      OMG , I love this collection! I dont get the crushed metallic pigment, is it like pigment? Does it stay on?

    • Jen

      Ooh new pictures! Yay!

      However… I’m not loving the packaging at all. I hate that whole surf-look deal. Blah. Packaging aside, the products look pretty good though!

    • sarah

      i like the packaging! especially the blush! but i dont need another one

    • Amber

      This collection is going to kill me. I’m a beach bunny by birth so the surf-esque packaging is making me want to buy all of it.
