I don't normally buy MAC over the counter just because of how expensive they are in New Zealand, but when MAC Alluring Aquatic launched in NZ on the 2nd of June, I travel all the way to town just to pick up Enchanted One!
When MAC Alluring Aquatic launched on Nordstrom, I was only able to pick up a bronzer and the Siren Song lipstick. As always, being almost late for everything, I missed out on the lipstick (Enchanted One) I have been eyeing up on since Temptalia reviewed this collection. Of course, I have expected this collection to be sold out immediate cause who doesn't love the packaging? It's GORGEOUS!
MAC Alluring Aquatic Bronzing Powder
This bronzing powder is one of the two which I was able to grab from Nordstrom at a cheaper price, it cost USD $27.50 and not that I need another bronzer, especially not one that looks like it's filled with a whole pan of glitters; it's so obvious, I bought this for the packaging.

Review for Submerged is coming soon ;) I got this nail lacquer over the MAC counter in Smith and Caughey for NZD $28.00, it's not bad, I guess ~ Ever since I purchased my first bottle of MAC nail lacquer, I have been so obsessed! Submerged is described as a dark teal chrome, I love that it changes color in different lighting.

So glad to finally own Enchanted One ♥ I drool over this every time I see it on Instagram! I bought MAC Enchanted One over the MAC counter in Smith and Caughey for NZD $44.00, almost twice the price than US pricing. If only I wasn't late for the Nordstrom launch, I would've get this at a much cheaper price. Still worth it thou ~

This may be one of my most regretted MAC purchase :( I bought this purely for the packaging and because it was the only lipstick left from this collection, being a lipstick addict I am, I have to at least own one lipstick from a MAC collection I like. So I bought MAC Siren Song on Nordstrom for USD $17.50.
