I have wanted a MAC Pro card for forever, but I have no credentials that make me eligible. A few years ago, my sister somehow managed to get a MAC Pro card and we used the discount on brushes and whatever colors we wanted in the store. We were completely unaware that we had access to a whole, exclusive line of Pro products. Silly girls….
Well now the lipstick hoarding masses have access to 9 gorgeous MAC Pro lip colors. I love orange for the summer, so the first lipstick I bought is Neon Orange. I’ve been wearing it for a week and I’m in love. It’s beyond bright, which makes it the perfect summer orange.

The wear time is great. I’ve gotten 5 hours before I even had to think about a touch up. Because it’s such a bright color, I pair it with a clear lip liner (clear lip liner – the jury is still out on weather this is a bogus or brilliant product) just in case it starts to bleed. This lipstick isn’t drying but your lips should be in tip top condition because it will highlight any dryness. My lips are notoriously dry so I scrub and moisturize them before application.
I ordered this from maccosmetics.com sight unseen. Yesterday I went into a store to play around with the other colors. I also love Fusion Pink, Show Orchid, and Full Fuschia.
Have you picked up any of these?

Every once and a while MAC has something that I can’t live without….and it’s usually something in their summer collection. Last year it was this gorgeous sparkly brown lipglass and I don’t do brown lips ever. Last week, I was lucky enough to snag the Clear Water Lipglass from their upcoming Alluring Aquatic collection.
I have had this all of three days and I’m already in love. Clear Water has a clear base with no color but tons of sparkle. The sparkle is mostly pink and silver. It’s a traditional MAC lipglass according to scent, wear time, and feel. I did notice that I have to apply two layers of this color to get the look I want. If you wear Clear Water alone you get crazy pretty sparkle. It also makes your lips look polished.
(It’s hard to get good swatches because the gloss is so sparkly!)
I’ve been wearing it over a almost nude pinky color and it makes the color shiny and fun! I promise you that Clear Water will transform every lip color….even the ones you bought and said ugh why did I buy this?! Try this color on top of pinks because that will really bring out all of the pink shimmer in the gloss.

So, unfortunately Clear Water is sold out on MAC’s website. Macy’s and Nordstrom has the collection online right now.
Alluring Aquatic launches in stores this Thursday. I suggest that you shop on Thursday to snag this little beauty! I’m hitting counters early because I really want to try the shadows that have sold out online as well.
Did you happen to grab something from the collection before it sold out online?
Stay Gorgeous 😉
