To the Beach: What did you get?

So, I just placed my order for MAC's To the Beach collection...because I currently live in Alaska, I don't have a MAC within a 700 mile radius. :D So yes, it will probably be a bit before I'll have swatches and reviews for you.

Anyways, I picked up:
-Marine Life (luckily grabbed it when it was up on nordstrom.com)
-Sand & Sun e/s
-Firecracker e/s
-Temperature Rising l/p
-Lazy Day l/s
-Beach Bronze cream bronzer (very intrigued by this)

I think that's it. I already have Hipness, though with the green packaging it was definitely tempting me! So we'll see if I can hold out...the other blush (bronze one) is interesting too..and the eyeshadows- I almost got Sweet & Punchy, but as I already have Rated R, I managed to resist. I haven't even used Rated R! I have Humid, and although I don't have Shimmermoss, I can't find myself using it any time soon.

Now, can we just talk about the Marine Life hype for a sec! I have to say, in all my years of collecting MAC, I can't remember a product with as much hype as this one. The most recent one that comes close is Ripe Peach, but I feel like there was a delay in RP's popularity...it took a couple days to sell out, at least from my recollection. I admit I might have bought ML for the hype; but let's face it, the "chase" is kinda fun, especially when you find this sought-after item. I also LOVE these kind of pinky/coral colors, so I know it will get plenty of use from me.

What about you, what did you end up getting from To the Beach? What were the hits and misses?

Awesome!! I ordered Sand & Sun, Sweet & Punchy, Firecracker, Easy Lounger, Hipness, Beachbound and Flurry of Fun online and I have Marine Life in my possession!! I was managed to get it at my MAC store yesterday since they released it one day early. They had one left in stock and that one lucky person better get it!

I think you've officially talked me out of sweet and punchy, thanks!!! :) I mean, I gave in and bought lucky green but I have still yet to wear that.

I haven't bought anything from the collection, and don't really plan to. The Marine Life hype is not something I bought into, and to be honest I can't see myself using it. Although I did toy with the idea of ordering a few online (Canadian site didn't sell out nearly as quick), and selling them for a profit later on :)

I am so envious that you got Marine Life. I didn't want it for myself but a friend who can't get to Mac did, so I went to grab it from what I thought was a not busy store... yeah, sold out in 30 MINUTES. ><;;;

I just picked up Thrills lipstick and Flurry of Fun lipglass. Both are gorgeous, I dunno about together though. The FoF kinda takes away from the copper gorgeousness of Thrills and vice versa.
