MAC To The Beach: Shimmer Moss Eyeshadow (Thank You Kaitlyn!)

The lovely Kaitlyn held a MAC Giveaway a while ago and I was so lucky to win! She gifted me any item under a certain amount and I was so excited to finally try something from the much sought-after To The Beach collection. Of course Marine Life, Splashing, Flurries of Fun, Sweet and Punchy, Hipness were long gone but there were still a few left. I'm a sucker for packaging so I opted for a cute little eyeshadow compact. Thank you Kaitlyn for introducing me to my first MAC product ever! :D

Shimmer Moss is a really pretty blue-teal (it shimmers a pretty green in the right lighting). It's pretty sheer and pearly, so it looks more natural and less street-alley grimace. Last time I used blues was in junior high and that was literally not pretty. As you have seen in my Summer Meadow FOTD attempt, the blue isn't super bright but more of a nice sky blue. This would have been so nice to wear with my little sailor dress.

Everything came in a nice sleek black MAC box about the size of a textbook across and I opened it to find a teeny tiny package. They don't skimp on the packaging at all. I am finally a proud, proud owner of a beautiful MAC shadow!

I am wearing ELF Matte Nail Polish Finish over my leopard print nails. It's so cool! I still prefer the shiny pretty sparkles though haha I'm such a 5-year old xD

See a look here featuring Shimmer Moss. Let the picspam begin!

Adorable shell detail on the packaging + pretty green shade of plastic
I don't think my camera does the teal part of the shadow justice. These are in bright sunlight

Swatch: See how pearly it is?
Thank you Kaitlyn! Aww she included a card that MAC printed too : ) She is so generous and sweet. Check out her blog and leave some love!
5 more days! I feel like my brain is reaching saturation point but baby steps and deep breaths. I'm going to go back to meandering my way through the Verbal Reasoning logic and trying to scrape a few more points off Physics. I miss all of you! It smiles every time I get a comment from you guys and totally cheers up my studying woes
