MAC Blush Palette & Collection Swatches

 

Hello there, my fellow beauty junkies. A few weeks ago I posted photos and swatches of my MAC Eye Shadow Palette and Collection. While I was at it, I also swatched my blushes…you know for future reference (us bloggers, always planning ahead). Anyway, I finally put together those photos and today I am sharing my (small) MAC Blush Palette and Collection, along with some brief thoughts on each.

Gingerly – Sheer Tone, Capri Bronzer. My summer staple. Skip a separate bronzer and sweep this beautiful bronze beauty from the temples downward just stopping short of the apples of your cheeks. Concentrate the color in that area just above where you would normally place your bronzer bringing it into your contour just a little. Stunning!

Springsheen – Sheer Tone Shimmer, Peach with Pearl. Easy does it with this one as it contains some serious shimmer. In fact, I use it more as a highlighter, on the top of my cheeks to pair with bronze and neutral tone blushes (I use it with Gingerly and Tenderling quite a bit).

Fleur PowerSatin, Soft Bright Pinkish Coral. Use a light hand, particularly if you are fair to light. A little of this goes a long way. The finish is described as satin, but to me, is leans a little matte. A beautiful option for the summer and on medium-deep skin tones, gorgeous!

TenderlingSheer Tone, Nude Pink. I completed my palette with this baby a few months ago. It’s a beige with a hint of pink that gives my light/medium skin tone a very natural looking flush. I would characterise the finish as semi-matte. One of my new favorite neutrals.

Breathe of PlumSheer Tone, Light Plum. Another fairly recent purchase, I’ve only worn this once. In another month or so, I look forward to busting it out on a regular basis. The plum is not too “heavy” of a plum and it’s pinky undertones means that it can translate well on a range of skin tones. Again, I would say this leans matte to semi-matte in finish. (Note: It’s showing up slightly darker in the photo than it is in real life.)

Full of JoyFrost, Lavender.  The first makeup item I reviewed on my blog (still not the quality I’d like but my, how far my photos have come, lol). A pinky lavender colour I reserve for the spring or fall/autumn. I love it despite the fact that it is not the most flattering in terms of emphasizing one’s pores if you go to heavy with it.

Sea Me, Hear Me (LE Alluring Aquatics) – Extra Dimension, Beige Pink. This comes off as a slightly pinky-coral colour with hints of red and plum on me. The finish is satin with a slight sheen. I actually enjoy this blush more than I thought I would.
 
MAC Blush Palette and Collection - Warm Soul

MAC Blush Palette and Collection - Warm Soul Swatches

Warm Soul


 
Warm Soul – Mineralized, Midtone Beige with Gold Pearl. My first MAC Blush. In fact, I think it probably was everyone’s first MAC blush, lol. This is a go-to year round colour that is warm but neutral and pairs well with almost anything. An all time favorite.
 

That’s my MAC Blush Collection as it stands now. If all goes according to plan, I’ll probably have a few more blushes by the end of the year. Regular MAC powder blushes retail for $22.00 USD/BSD while the Mineralized blushes go for $27.00 USD/BSD. I usually purchased locally, at Macy’s or MAC website.

  1. Can you believe Warm Soul wasn’t my first MAC blush, but I got it quite recently? I love it! Love your collection, mine is almost all LE blushes because it’s what I’m always drawn too in front of the display… But I’ve found some true loves that way! 😉 xx

      I almost can’t believe it, lol. I suppose almost everyone picks up Warm Soul eventually. 🙂 Their Limited Edition collections are really addicting, I can see why most of your collection is their LE stuff! 🙂

  2. I have a few blushes from MAC, but nothing in your collection! I always wanted Springsheen when I first got into makeup, but over time I’m just not sure I can handle the shimmer! It’s a great idea to use it as a highlighter though!

      Thanks hun! Springsheen is definitely some major shimmer and I admit I’ve been guilty of overdoing it sometimes – a few more years and I probably won’t be able to wear it anymore, lol. 🙂

  3. I personally own the MAC Cream Blush ‘Something special’ which I love! Yet to try MAC powder blushes. I do like the look of the ‘See me hear me’ blush! x

      It’s too bad Sea Me, Hear Me was limited. 🙁 I’ve actually not tried any of the cream blushes. I probably should. 😀

    Full of Joy is my favourite here!!
    I really REALLY wanted to like the blushes from Alluring Aquatic, and I kept trying them every time I walked into a Mac store for as long as the collection was out, but it just never happened, I found one too red and the other too orange 🙁
    But I got both bronzers from that collection instead ^_^
    Kiss xx

      I actually picked up Sea Me, Hear Me because the bronzers were sold out, just to have something from the Collection. At first I wasn’t too crazy about it but it has grown on me for sure. I love the look of Full of Joy, just need to be careful with it. 🙂 What are some of your favourites?

  4. You have such a great collection! I don’t have any MAC blushers but I’m so tempted to try some out now.

    Love,

      They’ve got some really great ones! Let me know if you end up picking up any. Warm Soul is a great one to start. 🙂

    Gingerly is one of my favourite blushes, i love the matte formula and it stays on so well for work. I think its time I got a mac palette for my blushes, just to save some space of course!

      Of course, we all need to save space, lol. Seriously though, having them in a palette has helped me reach for them more. 🙂
