Woohoo! First "real" post in a long time! (Still gotta share wedding pics, which i'll save for another day soon since there's so many LOL.) So since i've been on hiatus, I haven't really bought much from any of the MAC collections that have been coming out, but Hey Sailor really intrigued me because of the blushes and bronzing powder, and originally I ordered only the eyeshadow in Jaunty, lipstick in Sail La Vie, Bronzing Powder in Soft Sand, and the Shore Leave Pro Longwear lipliner; but when I went back to the MAC store, the MUA sold me on the blushes and the highlighting powder! HAHA, I ended up loving them too!
"Jaunty" (Frost) eyeshadow makes a nice pretty highlight color, it's a light pearl champagne color with a lovely texture so it's easy to apply. "Sail La Vie" is a nice reddish orange color, definitely more wearable than some of the orange lipsticks i've been seeing. It's a lot more muted than Morange and goes well with any skintone I feel. Shore Leave lipliner is a pretty color all in itself, I wish they made a lipstick this color, I tried to put it all over my lips to rock it by itself, but it was way too drying and chalky for me to wear alone and was going on a bit steaky. I even put a tiny bit of chapstick to see if that helps, but sadly it didn't. :(
"Launch Away!" blush is a super pretty pale pink, but when applied it goes on as a nice soft natural pink because it has a little pop of brightness to it giving you nice "dolly cheeks". I originally thought this was going to be chalky but when I swatches it, I really liked it! "Fleet Fast" was the first thing I had my eye on because I don't really have any blushes that are like this color. Many of my blushes are either pink or coral, and this is just the hybrid of the two because it's like a gorgeous natural looking coral pink blush with a hint of shimmer which looks awesome when paired with the bronzer and highlighting powder. I just love the way it looks on my light skin, gives a nice warmth to your face.
The bronzing powder "Soft Sand" is just PERFECT with my skin because many bronzers are way too dark for me, even the lightest bronzers gives a weird color on and can tend to look orangey. But soft sand is perfect, even with a heavy hand, it never goes on too dark, just the right amount of color to add depth and definition.
So there you have it! Enjoy the pics!
