MAC "Surf Baby" Summer 2011

It's only a few weeks ago that I was blogging about how excited I am for the launch of the MAC 'Quite Cute' Spring collection (which is due out in a few short weeks, squeal!), yet here I am posting about the next major makeup collection from the consistently strong cosmetic brand who continually leave me living on cheap cereal (yet with awesome makeup).

The summer collection has been announced as 'Surf Baby' a collection celebrating everything that is bronzed, beautiful and beach babeish, due to be realised here in the UK in June. Described as "colourful, lustrous, and full of life", Surf Baby embraces the vibe of a Californian Summer full throttle, so grab your surf boards, bikini tops and boogey boards, its time to hang ten!

As you can see in the graphic below, it's all about bronzed skin, surf blues and a little sunny shimmer, to create the perfect boho beachy face. I can imagine the products are designed specifically to match an impressive tan, but judging by the product images that have been released, there really will be something for everybody (even us criminally pale English folk). 

With product names such as 'Short Shorts' 'Lush-Light Bronze' and 'Hangin Loose', and Tan Tints, Bronzing Powders and Glitter Pots on the cards, I have a feeling this is going to be an amazing collection. 

Eye kohls, Lipsticks, Crushed metallic pigment stacks, Eyeshadows, Nail varnish, Blush

I'm particularly excited by the peachy blush with the gold flower, the 'Surf the Ocean' bluey green glitter stack and the fat turqouise kohl! The matching makeup bags are also cute, bright yellow and super summery. I'm not sure what I make of the white packaging, as I have a feeling it might look a little cheap..? But it definitely wont stop me treating myself to a few of these bits when they arrive in the UK!

What do you guys think? Are you impressed with this new 'Surf Baby' collection for Summer 2011? Are you gonna be a boho beach babe or a sleek city chick this summer?

  1. I really want that teal nail polish, it's perfect for the loads of inky blue items I have been buying the past few weeks...

    I do think mac packaging can look kind of cheap though. I've had tops snap off my eyeshadow pots too, it was quite sad really.

  2. yeah tbh it looks great.
    just wanted to let you know I think you're effin gorgeous, and has great style. :)
