My first introduction to MAC, and makeup in general, was when I was around 8 or 9 and my cousins used to put makeup on me for fun when I would visit. They’d go all out and it was truly a sight to see – I wish I had pictures. I remember them dipping their brush into MAC blushes and eyeshadows and it was always such a fun time that I’ll never forget.
When I first started experimenting with more higher end products, MAC was the first store that I went to. Since then, I now have an
unhealthy obsession with their lipsticks and always enjoy adding new products to my collection. Now while I don’t have the largest MAC blush stash, I thought I’d share the ones that I do have as they are truly beautiful.
Pink Swoon is a great option for my pale girls out there, as it’s a very cool-toned baby pink shade. This was the first MAC blush I purchased and I still love it, especially during the Spring. It’s a sheertone formula so it blends out very easily onto the cheeks but can be built up with multiple layers.
Speaking of shades that are perfect for Spring, What I Fancy is one of my top picks. It came out with their Flamingo Park collection last year, and it’s a bright peachy pink blush that really livens up the face. It is a satin finish and too can be worn sheer, or built up for more colour.
Next is Ripe For Love, which is a beautiful coral shade with a hint of peach. This blush takes a bit of building up to get true colour pay off, but I am a fan of more sheer blushes on me personally. I find some coral blushes can be a bit harsh against my fair skin, especially if they lean way into the warm/orange spectrum, but this one still works nicely. This is also a satin blush, but it does have the tiniest amount of golden shimmers throughout.
When I think of MAC blushes, I instantly think of their mineralize line. The gorgeous marbled pattern and stunning sheen that they give to the cheeks is undeniably beautiful. Dainty is a shade that you need to have in your collection as it’s such a flattering shade of pink. It does have some gold shimmer in it which I think adds that little bit of something extra to the cheeks.
Lastly, Gentle is another mineralize blush and is a medium rosy pink. I think you can tell by now that I love my pink and peach blushes. This too has some golden shimmer throughout, but I find that it blends away when applying it to the cheeks and only leaves that beautiful sheen behind. I find that MAC’s mineralizes blushes look the most natural on the skin which I love.
I am really wanting to expand my blush collection and currently have Margin, Harmony, Peachtwist and Love Joy on my wishlist. It’s safe to say that MAC is one of my favourite makeup brands and never disappoints!
