Look at that adorable seahorse! He is the star of the MAC To The Beach collection, but to be honest, I wouldn’t even wanna use him. He’s too beautiful!

I break down my feelings and top picks from the MAC To The Beach Collection in this, my first makeup review video. I hope you like it!

So yes, in order my top picks would be:

5- the bronzers — I particularly love Refined Golden, which is a finely spun golden with soft pearl finish.

4 – the blush – Hipness is an intense, but soft coral. It’s a bit pale but I’m getting a lot of wear out of it, especially with the bronzer over it.

3 – the eyeshadow – Sweet and Punchy is that acid yellow-green and I LOVE it!

2 – the eye kohls – Float on By Dark is that dark green turquoise, and Rosemary & Thyme is the olive gold. Love them both!

1 – The lip pencil/ lip glass combo – Temperature Rising is HOT for summer! But it seriously benefits from a gloss to layer over it. It’s super pretty with Easy Lounger, and — here’s a drugstore tip — the Milani 3D Glitzy Gloss that Clumps Of Mascara has been raving about looks amazing layered over this pencil and just about any other bright color!

Yes I realize that’s not exactly FIVE items, but those are the categories in which this collection shines brightest.

So, what did you think? I’ll try to keep these videos coming if you like them!

I bought the Bronze Body Oil! I can't wait to rock it...Need to tan a little more first. The eyeshadows in that collection are pretty amazing. Great colors! P.S. You look so purty!

I loved the video! I am a makeup junkie and M.A.C is my all time favorite brand. Will definitely be stocking up on this collection. I loved how you did your eyes. Perhaps next time you could do a little demo about how you applied and blended the colors. Keep 'em coming. PS Your hair looks amazing as well!

Wonderful video, Patrice! It's the next best thing to visiting Chicago (which is still a desire cuz it is a beautiful city...in the summer ;-) My MAC Bronzer is on a shelf in my bathroom...now I know what to do with it. I like the colored containers cuz they would be easier to find in your purse. I wear green eye shadow often. It seems to be my default now. I like the pattern on "Float on Eyes." Similar effect as the seahorse highlighter without feeling bad about using it. Can you do an instructional video....like step by step? U know that I am remedial when it comes to makeup. lol

Great job Bella! You look absolutely beautiful and you've given me a kick in the butt to get my videos done as well. P.S. Love the shadow/liner combo. Looks like I'm overdue for a trip to the MAC store. Again, great job and keep rockin' it!!!

You look fab! This is really nice. A good addition would be showing us the actual application of some of these cosmetics so we can see how you've achieved the effects you achieve. In the meantime, thanks and enjoy!

What a great video you come across a such a genuine person what a shame you aren't in the Uk you would be great for the www.simple.co.uk/star search for a blogger - I would purchase anything I think. Love the Seahorse but I couldnt use it. I also agree with Irie and Candi what a great move to do the video.

Great video, loved it as much as I loved the first one. You look like a pro. I agree that an instructional video will be great for those of us trying to revamp our makeup routine but not knowing how. I love MAC and I think they have really great products for brown skin. Thanks and I love your nails, the colour is great.

Bella I am loving your vids! You're great on camera, so personable (I can totally see you as some sort of fashion reporter). You should do a video where you show off some of your favorite things (makeup, hair products, accessories, clothes . . .etc). I'd love to see what some of your current favs are and why you love them so much. Anyways, good job, and keep the videos coming

Love everything about the video! You are a pro! Keep up the good work. By the way, you are outwardly gorgeous. Yet, its your inner spirit that seems to shine. Some people have "IT"-and you do. It appears you are truly walking in your passion. :)

First off, I love that you are doing make-up videos now! You are such an inspiration. Secondly, I am not a big fan of MAC products, I guess because I feel they are overhyped but this video is making me want to try out this collection pronto! The colors seem to pop on your skin, and looks natural without being overdone. Kudos sister!

I loved your video. I was not particularly hyped over this MAC Collection because I have several of the shades in my regular collection already such as Humid and Shimmermoss
