MAC in Lillyland Collection: Coconut Ice, Steamy
|Product: MAC in Lillyland Collection, Nail Lacquer .40 oz|
|Buy it: MAC, Macy's, Nordies|
"When MAC meets the lore and legend that is Lilly Pulitzer, you get a fabulous and funky fun new chapter: a bit of Mar-a-Lago, some well-to-do winky-wink, and a dash of retro-modern pop culture mayhem in prints and colours that make it hip to be in permanent happy land!
MAC Cosmetics newest collection, MAC in Lillyland launches with two fresh and colorful Nail Lacquers for Spring. Steamy, a permanent color, is a hot pink creme and Coconut Ice, limited edition, is a peachy sorbet treat.
Check out the swatches.
Coconut Ice is a yummy confectionary sweet made from coconut, sugar, eggs, and milk. Depending on the food coloring, it can range between a whitish/red or pink tint.
MAC represents Coconut Ice in the Lillyland collection as a bright peachy-pink creme perfect for Spring and Summer on those tootsies.
Do we really have to talk about the formula... because I'm so bummed with a capital B? Gorgeous shade, but the application was troublesome. No matter what method I tried, I couldn't get away from streak lines.
Check out some comparisons below.
Coconut Ice is brightened, less pastel and more pink compared to MAC's Seasonal Peach. A good alternative is Barielle's Blossom, which leans towards peach.
Steamy is a MAC core line shade, described as a hot pink creme.
Are you feeling Coconut Ice? Did you pick up anything from MAC in Lillyland Collection? Have a wonderful Friday! TGIF!

I really like Coconut Ice but I still love Barielle's Blossom. It's perfect!

Thank you for doing the comparison between Coconut Ice & Blossom! Now that I see they're not dupes I don't feel bad about getting both :) That coconut ice dessert looks yummy! I just picked up that NP and the peach Lip Gelee.

Your dots always look so perfect, how do you get them like that?

Is there a difference between Steamy and the Hello Kitty Something About Pink polish? What about Essie's Shakers and Movers?

I love me some Lilly & love the collaborations that MAC has. However, I ALWAYS seem to have issues when applying creme polishes so even though I LOVE Coconut Ice I may have to double think the purchase.
