Hey guys, the much anticipated MAC Summer Collection was launched today and I swatched absolutely everything to the point I felt like my arm was going to drop off!

All the liquid lip balms are lovely not sticky with a texture of syrup.
The bronzers are lovely too with 'Refined Golden' a permanent at MAC anyway. Depending on your skin tone you should try them out to see what shade you prefer. For my NC42 skintone I picked 'Soft Sand' and 'Refined Golden' these showed up nicely. 'Nude on Board' is quite light and yellow based bronze whereas 'Sun Dipped' is a more red based bronze - it didn't show up too well on my skintone but also appeared like it will show up more orange than bronze. These two will suit any other skin tone really well, NC35 upwards may prefer my choices of bronzer.
To the Beach Body oils are gorgeous, I picked up both as they are different, one has a silver shimmer and the other a gold shimmer, no colour pay off but a subtle sheen.
I personally didn't like two of the lipsticks only 'Red Racer' and 'To Catch A Sailor' and both lipsticks are absolutely gorgeous, Red Racer is a stunning red and To Catch a Sailor is a different kind of gold lipstick topped with a clear lipgloss it's really pretty. The other two lipsticks were ok but not my cup of tea. The lipglasses are cool, I'm not so sure about 'Cut Loose' though, white lipgloss anyone? The lip pencils are useful I guess too but easily dupable and not a necessity.
All the eyeshadows are gorgeous so if your on the out for new shades I would recommend all of them, I personally picked 'Feeling Fresh' as I don't have anything like it in my collection. If your a person for eye pencils they are awesome to have in your collection too. The pigments are colourful as always but I'm not sure I'm one of those pigment users, they're too messy for me!
The blushers are nice, one peach toned and one pink toned. 'Fleet Fast' reminds me of Nars Orgasm without any shimmer and a sheerer version. 'Launch Away' is quite powdery soft pink. The highlight powder looks nice in the pan but one I skipped because it's not something I would use that much as it just wasn't as lovely as some skin finishes or highlighters that have been around, to me it was like a blusher so I skipped it.
I'll be posting up my MAC Hey, Sailor! Haul post soon so stay tuned, I only bought a few items so I'll do a more in-depth review of them.
So what will you be purchasing? Note: On the UK website the 'Red Racer' lipstick and 'Feeling Fresh' eyeshadow have sold out, these two being the most popular items so far in the collection! So hurry down to your local MAC!
