MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection is gonna be hitting the counters soon in India in all its teal, water-splashed glory!

Now the packaging is killer, every one knows & yearns for it! How about the products in the collection?

That is what I am exactly gonna help you with in this post today!


Shiny, metallic teal finish with water droplets speckled all over the packaging is a delight to look at it! I don’t remember any other brand/product that had come with such a refreshing-killer packaging!

This was launched for Summer 2014 in the US, whereas with its apt packaging, its hitting Indian shores now over the monsoons (or the lack of it!) 😀

Continue reading the post, to more details on what is launched & not! 😀


Following lipsticks are to be launched in India –

Enchanted one – Neutral peachy-coral.
Pet Me Please – Shimmery peachy-beige. Has a frost finish.

I like Goddess of the Sea obviously in this collection! 🙂


The entire lipglass collection will be available in India.

Swatches L to R are –

Modern Lure – Berry-red shade with pink shimmer.
Peachstock – Peachy nude.No shimmer.
Water Deities – Light brown with beige & bronze shimmer.
Seducing Sound – Plummy-bronze with bronze & plum shimmer.

Modern Lure suits my taste amongst the lipglasses though I’m a no gloss person.


2 lip pencils are launched in this collection being –

Half Red – Plum with light red undertones.
What Comes Naturally – Peachy-beige shade.

Half Red has to be my pick from the lip pencils.


2 shades have been launched in this line –

Black Line – Black with golden olive shimmer.
Black Swan – Black with silver shimmer.

Both the shades are absolutely stunning!


6 eye shadow singles are part of this collection, of which I could spot 5 at the store.

Fathoms Deep – Gunmetal with hint of blue.
Lorelei – Golden beige with hint of peach.
Legendary Lure – Tealish gray.
Silver Sun – Dirty green.
Sea Worship – Yellowish olive with golden sheen.

Swatches with flash –

I could not spot shade “Soul Serenade” at the stores.

I like all the eyeshadows from this collection. They are crazily pigmented and ideal for party/festive wear.


There are 2 extra dimension blushes in the collection. Only 1 of 2 is launched here.

Sea Me, Hear Me – Warm coral with pink undertones & satiny finish.

The other one missing is “Seduced at Sea”. MAC describes it as “mid-tone neutral plum”.

I was all out for Sea Me, Hear Me ever since it launched in the US, and glad that it got launched here too!


There are 4 bronzing powders launched of which 2 belong to the extra dimension range.

The two extra dimension bronzers are for INR 2100 each.

Aphrodite’s Shell – Golden bronze with a fine touch of shimmer.
Delphic – Fine brick tan with a hint of shimmer.

Golden & Refined Golden are the other two shades of bronzers.

I couldn’t manage to take the swatches since they didn’t seem to show properly in the store lighting across my skin.


The 3 nail lacquers in this collection include –

Neptune – Frosty yellowish-antique gold with brown undertones.
Shimmerfish – Metallic silver with bronze shimmer.
Submerged – Blue & teal duochrome shade with teal shimmer.

Neptune has to be my absolute favorite in this range! Have not come across a shade like this before! 🙂

The makeup bag & makeup brushes don’t seem to be launched here.

This completes my post on MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection. And this has launched this Friday already (July 25).
