Mac Surf Baby Lipsticks Swatches and Reviews featuring Hibiscus and Bust Out

Mac Surf Baby collection has just been released and this post will cover the lipsticks. Naturally Eccentric was released previously eons ago in another collection and Mocha is a standard Mac color, available anytime. I LOVE Mocha. I wear it often. But today, I am covering the two newest colors Hibiscus and Bust Out!

I was excited to see these two colors because lately, I'm all about the purple and coral lips. I seem to be collecting. I've had a nude lip comfort zone for a long time because it's so easy as far as maintenance thruout the day or when you're out to lunch with the girls...another way to read that would be lazy, I guess. :)

The lipsticks come in a special packaging designed to cue the closet surfer in you. With special packaging comes a slightly higher price of $15.50 in the US. The bullet shaped white packaging has the same surfboard inspired oval that is on the nail polish packages and sporting the same fabulous hibiscus flower pointing to the word Mac.


On the left is Hibiscus, a cremesheen formula coral, and on the right is Bust Out!, a violet lustre formula. Here's a bit more of a close-up and some swatches on the skin:


I have been loving all the purples and violets Mac has come out with for lips lately, mainly because I didn't know I could wear them! I thought they'd make me look dead and I find that they look really natural on me and kind of even brighten up my face.


My only complaint with this lipstick is that it's so sheer. I'm not fond of lustres in general, although I have many that I adore. This one just seems to fade quickly. It's a shame because I really love the color but it doesn't seem to last on me. So I shall be trying it with a liner or gloss for more ooomph and longer wear.

Hibiscus is a longer lasting color. You won't have to touch up often and the color remains true as it wears. Delightful for summer. I have pictures in a couple different lightings.


I love the mix of colors that Mac used in the lipsticks in this collection. They are vastly different from each other which makes it seem like there is truely at least one of the four for everyone.

  1. These are very wearable shades, especially Bust Out which isn't too blue. Very nice!
