There’s actually already been a nautical themed collection from MAC but not a Summer one. I am disappointed. I thought they’d go more warmer with this, don’t get wrong there are warm elements to it, but not sizzling Summer ones. I really wanted something orange, corally in nature but I guess you can’t base an entire massive MAC Collection on a single shade alone.

I’m not sure any of this is appealing to me at the moment.

How about you?

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.

    The To Catch a Sailor lipstick looks interesting, only because I like odd colored lipsticks and feel like I could use a gold frost 😀 Otherwise, I’m a bit overwhelmed by all of the stripes, lol.

  • Stephanie C.

    OH MY GOSH! This collection is so cute! I didn’t like any of the collections coming out lately (or their promo photos) but this is adorable! I want it just for the casing almost! Sadly, I have similar colors to most of these already, but tempted by Sail la Vie lipstick, the various eye shadows (would need to see how the frost shows up), and MAYYBE a blush… The bag is also super cute. I really love nautical/marine themed stuff though.

  • Janelle

    I like it! But I’m surprised they did this again as they had the Naughty Nauticals collection (Summer 2008, I think) which was similar in theme. But I definitely see some things I will *need* 😉

    • the Muse

      yup, agreed Janelle, mentioned in the post they already did a nautical theme, kinda a rehash :-/

  • Stephanie C.

    Also, Re: the pantone collection at Sephora, what do you think of the blushes? I’ve heard they’re good (specifically the chrome one), but haven’t seen many blog reviews on it yet. I’m tempted to get but no idea… Still need to drop by the store~

    • Joan

      The Pantone blush duo is GORGEOUS!! Just received it a couple of days ago. Very pleased with the shades.

  • Cj

    I like it! I really like it infact. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, the high-light powder looks amazing! I can’t wait for swatches of it. And the 2 blushes look really good too 🙂 Oh and the lip balms! Yeah I’m really liking this collection lol

    • Majick

      I really LOVE the packaging. I have to get a lippie because it will match a shirt I got at WHBM – it’s white with the navy stripes going in diagonal different directions just like the cases here.
      I will probably end up with the red or orange lippie (lvoe those colors in summer wtih just some liner and mascara.
      Maybe a gloss but I really just want to whip out that lippie when I’m wearing the shirt. LOL

  • Joyce

    The 167SH Face Blender looks awesome. Hopefully a long handle version will be available in the future. =)

  • Daniela

    CUTE!!!!!!!! God I love vintage nautical themes and le packaging!! So long wallet..

  • Sarah S.

    All I want is Riviera Life! And maybe a shadow or two once I see swatches 🙂

  • Mal @ The Chic Geek

    So cute, love the stripes and a lot of the colors look great, can’t wait to see them IRL

  • Jennie

    Finally, a collection I’m actually looking forward to! Their past ones have been so bland. I can’t wait for the release! 😀

  • Lucy

    To be honest I’m glad I don’t want everything. I might though after swatches. I’m particularly interested in Salute! and Red racer lipstick. I think the packaging could be a bit more nautical. Maybe have some red in there.. I do like how the stripes go in different directions though and I can’t wait for swatches!!

  • Rawr

    OMG! Am i the only one whos heart stopped when i saw special packaging! YES YES YES! It feels like its been FOREVER since special packaging and im so loving the theme too… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS WHAT WE WANT MAC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sukipooki

    I’m a huge sucker for anything nautical so I will most definitively be picking something up despite the fact that I know I don’t need anything from this collection but darn the packaging is just way too cute to pass up, hopefully they come up with a sizzling orange collection for you soon! =D

  • Misato-san

    I’m a girl who loves and wears cool tones better than those offered here. So… skip!

  • Hoang

    I LOVE the packaging! so pretty^^ I foresee the highlight powder in Crew to sell out quickly. And new Suntints!! I don’t really love any of the lipstick shades except for Salute. Lipglasses and the other products look fairly interesting though 🙂
    Maybe a Pantone collection later in the summer with MAC? *crosses fingers*

  • Crystal

    I like the packaging but I don’t think of red lips and navy shadows when its summer but I’ll walk away with some of it I can’t lie!

  • Jeanne

    I love this packaging! I’ve been skipping a lot of MAC’s LE collections if they don’t change the packaging at all (unless there’s something outstanding), I hate having to memorize all the names since all the black packaging looks the same lol!

  • plue

    i think i will have the blush please, and maybe the bright red lipstick n lipglass but that’s about it.

  • JCz

    That Seaside Body Oil will find it’s way into my bathroom somehow…

  • Emily

    I don’t like the promo photos with the model – I think her makeup looks really naff and dated. MAC usually put a fresh twist on everything and make it look so modern. Although the products sound good I’m not feeling the whole vibe of this collection! X

  • Ellie

    Oh my! It looks wonderful! I am especially interested in that brush, wonder what it will cost! Thanks for the post! x

  • Gigi

    I usually look forward to the summer collection. Hopefully this looks better in person. So far, the colors look like everything else they have had in the past & the packaging looks cheap.

  • Joan

    I am so there with a couple of the lip glasses and both the blushes. Can’t wait (again)! Mac just comes out with too much. Not good for the checkbook. Purchasing four of the Tres Blush shades this coming week and one Cremesheen lip glass from the Reel Sexy collection. It never ends!!

  • Ruthless

    OOooo I am excited about the lipsticks/balm/glaze and the body oil. Everything else is a pass but I will have to check those out

  • Joan

    Is it me, or do the two blush shades look exactly alike? Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be getting both. I’m hoping it’s just how they photographed.
