MAC Temperature Rising Collection

MAC has just released their newest collection for the summer. This is such a great collection and I have going back and forth with my wishlist.

It was released online on Thursday and will be available in stores next Thurs. A lot of items are sold out online already within a day so I am guessing they will sell out quickly in store also. So if you are thinking of getting your hands on this collection, better go to your stores early.


I only got 2 products from this collection. I got the pro longwear bronzing powder and one of the eye shadow quads.

First, I have to say their packaging for this collection is absolutely amazing. It is a bronzy gold brown packaging. Inside the boxes is a vibrant purple color.


It is just your regular MAC bronzer/blush packaging. It is a soft rubbery packaging. Very chic-looking.

Prolong wear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board

This particular shade was released in previous collection. I have not tried MAC prolong wear bronzing powder before and I want to see how the staying power is. I picked this shade as I want a more natural shade, both as a bronzer and a contouring powder. 


A very soft color with a tiny bit of shimmer, only visible in the pan and not on the swatch or on my skin. 


Bare My Soul Quad


The packaging is again to die for. The same bronzy brown rim on the quad.


Top Left: Romantico (a light taupe bronze in veluxe pearl)
Top Right: Bare My Soul(frosted gold in lustre)
Bottom Left: Summer Indulgence( deep chocolate bronze in veluxe pearl)
Bottom Right: When in Rio(deep green with bronze pearl in frost finish)


I really love this quad. The colors are amazing and very pigmented. They are shimmery but very wearable. Especially love "When in Rio"(the one on the far right). It is a deep green bronze color, almost like a duo-chrome color. I love to apply that on the outer corner and line on my bottom lash line. Very excited and happy to try more ways with this quad.

Are you excited about this collection from MAC? What is on your wishlist?

    1. It is $52. A bit more than the regular MAC quad. Guess they increase the price for limited edition/special packaging.

    1. I am really enjoying this quad. I don't usually like shimmery shadows but they are subtle enough and am suitable for daytime use.
