MAC Surf Baby Eyeshadow Swatches!

Picked up a few shadows from MAC's Surf Baby collection and I have to say, they're SO gorgeous. I don't have anything like them and they're all crazy pigmented. I didn't pick up the grey eyeshadow though...kinda wish I did!

My favorites are Surf USA and Sun Blonde, and Sun Blonde is likely the most unique. It's a dirty yellow...totally different from any yellow I own. If you love yellow shadows, I highly suggest Sun Blonde!

Surf USA, Saffron, Sun Blonde, Short Shorts

the shadows are very vibrant on you! shadow-wise, i only picked up sun blonde and surf usa but you kind of make me wish i'd gotten short shorts now. saffron is nice too but i look kind of bruised when i wear colors like that LOL.

i love you blog!

was wondering what these where like... I like that they are highly pigmented but how do they blend? I've had a few problems with mac in the past.

but i do like the short short color and the sun blonde make great highlight colors!

@Cooking without the recipe: They blend fine for me. I'll be posting a look soon using all the colors. They blend and transition into each other beautifully.

I picked up Sun Blonde and Surf USA as well and I cannot wait to play around with them. I was a little disappointed when I swatched them in store but once I got them home and put them over a base they looked gorgeous.

here are some dupes my lovelies:

surf usa = mac gulf stream
sun blonde = urban decay honey
short shorts = mac white gold pigment over mac nylon
swell baby = print over white base like nyx milk or nyx white/pearl eyeshadow base
saffron (I'm still working on this one) far leaning towards red brick + coppering
