If you’re following me on Instagram, you already know that I got my hands on the new summer “Wash and Dry” limited edition collection by MAC!

I chose a few items from this collection and I’m truly happy with my choice.

The items that it got –

Lipsticks – “Morange” , “Tumble dry “, “Steam Heat”

Blush – “Hipness”

Bronzing Powder – “Refined Golden”

Highlight powder – “Freshen Up”

The packaging!

To tell you the truth, the first thing that got my attention was the packaging , it’s so gorgeous, I love the summery gradient design,it’s very fresh and different from the standard Mac packaging.

Some people say that the packaging feels cheap, I don’t feel this way, the packaging in my opinion is the same as always, just the coloring is different. yes, there is no magnetic closure, but I don’t really care about those things.

Blush “Hipness”

I really like this blush, I’ve been wearing it since the day I got it, it’s definitely my new favorite blush, The color is a Coral pink, and I chose it over the other “Crisp Whites” blush, because I liked the color a lot more and it is definitely more pigmented. (This color is a repromote)


Bronzing Powder “Refined Golden”

The color of this bronzer is worm brown with golden shimmer in it, it is great for contouring and just for getting that overall tan warm look. When swatched , you can’t really see the shimmer anymore, it appears matte. (This bronzer is from the permanent line)


Wash and dry mac bronzer blushHighlight powder “Freshen Up”

This is a highlighter ,but you can also use it as a blush, and even as an eyeshadow because it is so pigmented, the color is peachy golden when mixed.

it looks very pretty in the packaging, it’s the prettiest and most interesting item from this whole collection.


wash and dry mac freshen up swatch“Morange” Lipstick

This is a beautiful bright orange lipstick, The finish is Amplified creme, ,this is my favorite lipstick from this collection, great summer color, I always love orangey colors for summer. This is a permanent shade but I didn’t have it, so I decided to get it.

“Steam Heat” Lipstick

This is a warm bright red lipstick, the finish is Satin,  I like this color, but there are many similar colors to it, and I don’t feel that it’s unique in any way.

“Tumble dry” Lipstick

This is a sheer nude peach lipstick, the finish is Lustre,  I like this color in the packaging, but it feels a little dry to me and not pigmented.

The lipstick that I didn’t get is “Creme D’nude” – This is not a new color, This is a permanent shade, I already have it, so I didn’t get it, overall I don’t really like this color, it’s too light for me and makes me look kinda dead.



Bottom line

I love the design of the packaging, but other than that I don’t really feel that this collection is special in any way, many of the items are from the permanent line or repromotes and only the packaging is different.

Don’t get me wrong, I do like the Items that I got, But I feel that Mac could have done a better job with this collection, I expected completely new products and I’m a bit disappointed to see so many items from the permanent line just in a different package.

What do you guys think about this collection? What items are you getting?

* The new “Wash and Dry” limited edition collection will be available for purchase online on May 14th, and May 21st in stores (North America).
