MAC Cosmetics has just launched their new limited edition summer collection: Hey, Sailor! “Set sail this summer with a colour collection inspired by the glam of vintage pin-up girls.” This collection features shades of navy blue and golden tones, the perfect mix of sea and sun. It also boasts waterproof mascaras and long wear lip pencils, so makeup stays put while you sail away!

All products come in a sailor inspired navy blue and white striped case. Makeup bag sets and sailing totes are also available.

Items that perked my interest include:

Hey, Sailor! Lipglass in Rivera Life – a bright tangerine gloss $15.50

Hey, Sailor! Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board – a light golden compact bronzer $28

Hey, Sailor! Gone Sailing Tote – a large navy blue and white striped tote bag that’s big enough for the beach!

Do I sense a Rihanna/ Battleship/ MAC Collabo? The collection is available online now and will be available in stores 5/24/12.

I recently switched over to MAC Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation and I really like it. It features new foundation technology that uses translucent pigments. These pigments create a custom finish according to your skin’s unique undertone and helps reduce the appearance of lines. It offers a moisturizing  buildable medium coverage with a demi-matte finish. This means your makeup won’t looked caked on and you won’t be a victim of “5’oclock shine”.

The formula is thick and not runny like other liquid foundations. It does not  apply thick on the face, because it has medium coverage. I chose to try this foundation because it helps keep shine at bay. As the weather gets warmer, my face gets shinier! So I wanted to find something that would help me fight that battle! It reminds me of cream-to-powder compact foundations, it is like an updated version of those.

At first I was matched with shade 4, the next day I applied it to my entire face and I immediately noticed it was too light for me. I won’t complain too much because their mistake gave me an extra swatch color!  The following day, I went back and they matched me with shade 5.  I found my perfect match!

Matchmaster comes in a 1.2 oz. pump bottle . It can be  applied it with a foundation brush or simply with your fingers. Use the MAC Brush Finder tool if you need help choosing your brush. I generally use two pumps and set it with my bare minerals veil. $33
