Review: MAC’s Tropical Taboo Collection

Hi Glamifys,

Another quick update before the weekend!

MAC’s latest collection Tropical Taboo finally hit stores a week ago and the items were selling out fast!

*I wanted to get this post out before the weekend mob at Sephora Ion*



The collection included 4 lipsticks, one bronzer, one highlighter and about 9 mineral eyeshadows.

Most of the items were from the mineralized selection like their baked eyeshadows and skin finishes.

Bronzers and highlighters were going for about SGD 50 I believe… not too sure of the prices for the skin finishes.


As for the lipsticks, it comes with a magnetic case and retails for SGD 40 each.


The bottom 2 swatches are of the same color… accidentally duplicated the swatch.. don’t mind me~~~~ oopsies!

The eyeshadows were mostly from the regular line except for BOSSA BLUE (bottom row left). Yes! It is blue and a bronzy taupe. But when mixed, it comes off as a greyish purple.. Absolutely wow!


Left is the bronzy taupe, middle is the blue, right is the mixed colors.











The eyeshadows retail at SGD 37 each and can be used either wet or dry

Such a nice color! It can be used separately as well as together.. so technically.. u get 3 eyeshadows for the price of one..

Just a little tip for all of you still searching for this collection. Most stores released it 2 weeks ago.. but Sephora Ion Mac branch released it just yesterday! So YES!!! The best chance of getting sold out items would most probably be at Sephora Ion.

Do look for this really cute bright red hair MAC MUA named Cynthia. She is so helpful and friendly.. Plus I found out that MAC MUA’s are commission based. So why bother spending your money with a snooty MUA anyways!!!???

My friends purchased the lipstick in Strikingly Fabulous and they can’t wait to buy a second tube.

** Please note that Strikingly Fabulous is from the Spring collection of mineralized lipsticks. It was added into the Singapore release of Tropical Taboo. This lipstick is not found on the MAC USA website.

Strikingly Fabulous is the lipstick on the top row, in the middle 😀 pretty creamy pink.


Here are some comments from my friends about Strikingly Fabulous:

“The lipstick is super pigmented and felt like butter on my lips. Moisturizes throughout the day and does not sink into the fine lines. My Perfect lipstick shade.” – A.T.


Picture courtesty of A.T.

“This lipstick makes my lips look and feel so kissable. The color is just the right shade of pink. Best part is that the color does not bleed outside of my lips.” – J.S.

Go grab the collection before it’s all gone~~~~~~
