MAC To the Beach Summer 2010 Collection

Summer is just around the corner, believe it or not! It’s really time to get that cute bathing suit you’ve been putting off week after week.. before it’s sold out! I found a super-cute bright coral bathing suit at ::gasp:: Fashion Bug! I never thought I’d set foot in that store, but when I did a web search for coral one-piece swimsuits.. that came up and I just loved it. Only problem is that it’s not long enough for my 5’10 frame and it shows wayyy too much cleavage for me. The quality and color really surprised me though, I am impressed.

So to tip off the summer in a gorgeous way, MAC has something rather impressive in store for us.

MAC To the Beach Summer Collection 2010

MAC says about To the Beach: There is fun in the sun, to be sure, but to the beach is more of a sensual state of mind – a pleasure we all feel near the sea. The girl and boy from Ipanema, from Cap D’Antibes to West Palm Beach…All around the world, the seaside has a romance, and a kind of golden, sexy alchemy we’re all drawn to. This collection encapsulates it, with a new, lapping-wave Lip-Pencil and High-Light Powder in coral shades, Nail Lacquer – A Scorcher! – Eye Shadow, Kohl, and Powder Blush to get away from it all effortlessly. Sandbags, seashells, the magic of marine life decorating packaging in the most soothing sultry shades of summertime. Close your eyes, and go To The Beach!

Coral is yet again a dominant color in a MAC collection.. it matches my bathing suit perfectly!.. and yes, I DO go to the pool / beach with full makeup on. hah!
