I love these cutesy collections that MAC come out with every spring. Shop MAC, Cook MAC comes in especially adorable packaging!

Out of the 3 Nail Lacquers, I only chose 1 called Salad Dressed (mid-tone dirty aqua, creme finish). As you can see, it came with a removable sleeve, all decked out in pink and yellow, going along with the theme of the rest of this cute collection. This is yet another shade that fits in with the For Audrey family. What can I say? I like what I like. I’ve swatched Salad Dressed next to Mischievous Mint. Salad Dressed looks darker and greener.

I got my first ever MAC Eyeshadow Quad in Call Me Bubbles which consisted of 4 shades; Call Me Bubbles (light tan, satin finish), Fresh Daily (orange, frost finish), Brash (frosty reddish copper, veluxe pearl finish), and Full of Flavor (coral, matte finish). Technically, I own several other quads but since I put those together, they don’t really count. It also came with a removable sleeve. This quad has a wonderful combination of colors that remind me of a setting sun. Brash is so pigmented that it’s straight up metallic. Full of Flavor looks lovely albeit unconventional as a crease color, especially when paired with Fresh Daily. This is a soft colorful take on the glow-y, soft eye look that is so flattering on everyone. You can mix and match the shades in this quad to come up with your own customized eyeshadow shade(s). Call me Bubbles works as a brow bone/inner corner highlight. I adore this quad!

I only got 1 lipstick from this collection called Watch Me Simmer (bright pink-orange, amplified finish). The sleeve is removable as well. Watch Me Simmer is a beautiful coral that’s perfect for summer and looks especially great with a tan! It’s everything I wanted Viva Glam Nicki to be, only better!

Even though I wanted all 4 that came out in this collection, I decided to be realistic and just get 2. Purring is described as a sheer tangerine with pearl (erm… actually this has a lovely cream finish, no shimmer, no pearl) and Hush, Hush is described as a sheer gold with yellow pearl. The sleeve is not removable on the packaging. Out of everything in Shop MAC, Cook MAC, I was most excited about tendertones. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a tendertone since forever but you know how MAC rolls; They create a fantastic product, wait for you to fall in love with it, then promptly discontinue it sending you (or just me) into a panicked frenzy. Long story short, I was really happy that these were re-promoted. Basically, these are just potted lip balms. They deposit very little color if any on the lips. Tendertones are very, very sheer which is why I didn’t bother swatching them. I love the delicious watermelon scent on these things, which is a nice change from the usual vanilla. They are also quite hydrating.

Lastly, I got Wholesome fluidline which is described as a blackened brown. This is perfect for those times when I’m so pale that black can look quite stark on my skin. It’s a nice alternative to black.
