MAC has been quite the busy bee this year! After churning out Fashion Sets, Baking Beauties, In Extra Dimension AND The Return of Marilyn in just 2 months I’m completely in awe! I’m not sure if I (or my wallet) can keep up with all these new goodies coming my way! Summer is right around the corner and MAC is bringing some serious heat with their new Temperature Rising limited edition collection.  It’s a pretty big collection with 4 eye pencils, 2 eyeshadow quads, 4 lipsticks, 4 lip glass, 4 bronzers, a bronzing oil and a strobe liquid.

I was recently hired into Nordstrom’s cosmetics department so I got a chance to sneak a peek at the display! I wasn’t allowed to take pics of the display because it was still in storage (BOOO!) but I did manage to get some swatches for you ladies! This mega collection was much too big to swatch everything so I just focused on the blushes and lipsticks. All of them are beautiful but I like Ripe for Love, Sheer Seduction and Altered Beige the most. Of course, I would LOVE to get my hands on Feel My Pulse but it looks soooo super close to Seductive Intent from the Taste Temptation collection. Not to mention I also have my heart set on picking up a Refined Golden bronzer, Liquid Passion lip glass, Man Rays bronzing oil and Golden Elixir strobe liquid. Such a big haul! Temperature Rising is already available online but a few items are sold out already. Luckily, this collection will be released in stores next Wednesday, May 22, at all MAC locations! Will MAC get your Temperature Rising next week??
