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.
Palette Row 1 (Top Left, Bottom Left)
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).
Palette Row 2 (Top Middle, Bottom Middle)
Fleur Power – Satin, 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!
Tenderling – Sheer 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.
Palette Row 3 (Top Right, Bottom Right)
Breathe of Plum – Sheer 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 Joy – Frost, 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.
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.
Are you guys a fan of MAC blushes? Which are some of your favourites?
