Just Swatches : Mac Powder Blushes

This might seem as too many or too few to some, but here are my Mac blushes! I’ve had some of these for ages and one is fairly new! Also for reference, my skintone is NC40.


01. Peaches { Sheertone } – I bought this because I felt I was missing out on it (blush wise), and I was right! It’s sheer, super blendable and just a great colour to wear all year round. It’s a very pretty light peach.

02. Sunbasque { Sheertone Shimmer } – This was the first Mac blush I bought along with Plum Foolery. It has a bit of gold shimmer to it and it looks so good on medium skintones. Even on lighter skintones it gives such a nice sunkissed look. If you don’t mind shimmer in your blushes, try this once!

03. Pinch Me { Sheertone } – This is my newest blush. I was looking for a rosy brown and this looked great on me. It’s a bit more pigmented for a sheertone and perfect for everyday wear.

04. Well Dressed { Satin} – Not the best colour for my skintone but this works well when used lightly and in tow with a highlighter. It’s a pretty baby pink!

05. Plum Foolery { Sheertone Shimmer } – Plum blushes aren’t too popular but this one is a good mix of plum and rose shades. It’s a bit in between and the shimmer makes it really gorgeous.

06. Frankly Scarlet { Matte } – Damn that looks scary in the pan! I know it looks like I haven’t touched it, but you need so, so little that I just lightly touch my brush against it and I’m done. It’s very pigmented and yet when used correctly, you get a very natural coloured flush on your cheeks. It looks more red in the pan but it’s more pink on the cheeks. For deeper skintones this is perfect and a lot more easier to use. I wouldn’t suggest this as your first blush but at some point, it’s a good purchase which will last you forever! Despite the matte finish, it doesn’t look powdery at all, blends really well.
