MAC Tropical Taboo Collection Sneak Peek

Yes ladies. Another limited edition MAC collection! Whew, slow down MAC! This week the mega beauty brand releases the Tropical Taboo Mineralize summer collection and I must say I’m honestly not impressed. This will be a VERY small haul. Shocking right??

I’ll only be hauling the 159, Narcissus and Have to Have It. The lipsticks are all permanent minus Midnight Mambo which isn’t worth getting because it’s very similar to the pinky purple lipsticks MAC keeps releasing. The blushes are uninteresting at best and the all of the Skinfinishes look like blushes. Very unimpressive. The collection is available online now and in stores this Thursday. Will you ladies be hauling anything from Tropical Taboo?

One Thought to “MAC Tropical Taboo Collection Sneak Peek”

  1. I actually hauled quite a bit from this collection. Then again I’m a sucker for mineral makeup. However, that Cha-Cha-Cha swatch has me feeling a little worried. I only ordered 2 of the shadows since those have disappointed in the past, but I’m hoping for a few winners here. I am excited to get my skinfinish and blush though.
