MAC "To The Beach" collection Haul [Pic heavy!!]

Hello Biuties!
I must warn you there is a whole lot of pictures here!
As soon as it was online I was eying it and deciding weather I wanted something or not. Finally I caved and here's what I got!
(click on the pics to have a better look)

I found a few dupes and though they were definitely worth sharing!

I will do a video about what I think of them as soon as I feel better
But here are my initial thoughts:

They are really pretty and I like the finish, if you are tight for cash definitely check out the NYC ones the only difference between them and the MAC ones is the shimmeriness (? that a word?). The MAC ones are more on the golden side as well.

Very pretty color, however I think it would look best with lighter skin tones. I'll definitely make it work and apply it on top of the darker lipsticks I have.

I love this color! Compared to Gilda from NARS its on the pink side and a little less pigmented. I'm also sure that Sleek has a blusher that has the same shade as Hipness. Other than that, perfect for summer!
Lotsa Love!
