MAC Blush swatches..

Here's my MAC Blush Collection. I only own 5 hehe. =P
Aside from this brand, I also own a few from Elianto, L'oreal, LA Colors, ELF, etc..

As I write this, am saying goodbye to my Posey Blushcreme.. I love the color, but I prefer to use powder blushes... Thanks to Lovely for adopting my baby! =)



MAC Blushes from Lower left:

Dollymix - Pure Candy Pink (sheertone shimmer)
Springsheen - Peach with Pearl (sheertone shimmer)
Afterdusk (Moonbathe Collection) - raspberry/plum with gold shimmers (sheertone shimmer)
Pink Swoon - Clearly Pink (sheertone)
Posey Blushcreme - Dewey-fresh rosey pink (cream)

My thoughts:
I'm NC20-25 for reference

Dollymix - my favorite among the 5. Really gives me a nice flush. This looks scary on the pan, but the key in applying this is to use a kabuki brush or duo fibre brush so that it will not look too harsh on fair skintones.

Save: Everbilena blush in Shy. I had this before, but gave it away coz the color looks kinda similar but the Dollymix is pigmented compared to EB.

Springsheen - gives warmth on my face. The color is a subtle bronzey-peach on my skintone with a hint of shimmers.

Save : ELF bronzer in sunkissed + ELF Glow blush if applied with a light hand. First apply Glow then the bronzer to achieve a peachy-bronze glow.. =)

Afterdusk - my fave blush to use during nighttime coz of its shimmers. I layer this with any pink blush. When used alone, its really hard to get the color to show up on my skin and its not that long lasting compared my to other MAC blushes.

Pink Swoon - A no-brainer blush. Gives a subtle baby pink flush that compliments blue, green or smokey eyeshadows. I read Kim Kardashian is a fan of this blush!

Posey Blushcream - a pinky-red color on the pan. You only need a dot per cheek area. The only thing I don't like with cream/liquid/gel blushes is that it leaves a stain on my fingertips! =P


Hope you like my review.. See ya next time!
