MAC Alluring Aquatics Collection | The Cheeks - Swatches & Review

Hi dolls! I'm home! What an amazing road trip. We had such a blast and I got to spend time seeing the sights and spending time with family. What's better than that? I'll probably do a post about it but until then I have part two of the MAC Alluring Aquatics Collection - The Cheeks! I was trying to think of a cooler title but nothing came to mind. Lately, I can't even remember my own name, let alone a cool title for a post. Pregnancy brain, ladies and gentlemen, it's a real thing.

MAC Alluring Aquatics

Sea Me, Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush
Sea Me, Hear Me is described as a "beige pink". I would describe it as a crazy concoction of a pinky-brown-coral. The picture shows it a little lighter than it's true color but it does have that beautiful satin look to it as shown. The texture was super duper soft and easy to apply. It does go on sheer at first but it's buildable.

Delphic Extra Dimension Bronzer
Delphic is described as a "soft brick tan with a touch of shimmer". I would agree with that. When I first got this in the mail, I was like, "Crap. That's orange." which is no bueno for my light skin, but it actually worked and was flattering. The texture is soft and blends out nicely but is pretty sheer (which is why I think it worked for me). It's somewhat buildable.

Swatches of: Sea Me, Hear Me | Delphic

Overall: These are my first "extra dimension" buys from MAC so I wasn't sure what to expect nor what that really meant. I'm so impressed and pleased with these two! SMHM is absolutely stunning and is basically my favorite blush right now. I was so unsure about Delphic being too orange for my skintone but it worked well with it. They both have that gorgeous "sheen" (which I'm assuming is the "extra dimension" part) that makes both so flattering. I'm so happy that the packaging sucked me in to buy but the product itself stood out as well.

Availability: Limited Edition at MACCosmetics.com | Price: $27.50 & $33
