I was wandering around the mall the other day and TOTALLY forgot that the MAC Hey, Sailor! collection had already been released. Me being a Navy Wife I should definitely own an item or two from the collection, right? I don’t know what it is, but I haven’t been following MAC Limited Edition releases lately… Fleet Fast definitely had me at Hello!
The packaging is something that I didn’t think I would like at first but it is growing on me. I love the red, white and blue with the striping that is sort of off and whimsical. Very summer.
The shade is a nice coral pink with golden sheen. The sheen is subtle and the color itself is muted. It is a very nice summer color. I would compare it to NARS Orgasm (but definitely worlds better) or even Tarte Glisten. There are a few shades in my collection that are similar but this one is definitely very pigmented.
You can see the golden shimmer in the swatch below, but it is ever so faint. It shows up as a true satin finish and I think it would suit ladies of many different skintones. It is nice and muted for ladies who are more pale but pigmented enough to show up on darker skin as well. I wore it 2-3 times since purchasing and I had no problem with it lasting all day (10 hours of wear in all) and I don’t expect that anyone would have much of a problem. All-in-all I think this would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s blush collection.
It is limited edition so if you are interested and you find it, definitely snag it. This is the only thing I ended up picking up from the collection because I have so many similar colors. I wanted to pick up the Jaunty eyeshadow but I didn’t in fear that I have too many neutrals and I probably have a dozen or so dupes for it. Who knows… I may pick it up at a later time. What did you pick up from Hey, Sailor!, tell me in the comments below!
