1. MAC Cosmetics Pro Powder Blush in Full Fucshia for $17.00
MAC Cosmetics is well known. It is the gateway cosmetic brand for someone making the jump from drugstore to department store. It is cool, colorful, fairly priced, and just too much freaking fun. You can easily develop a cosmetic addiction off of MAC Cosmetics alone. There isn’t much to say about this powder blush purchase. I love blushes, in general. This Pro Powder Blush is designed to fit in a palette, which I love. There is nothing more awesome than opening a palette and just seeing circles of color and dab, dab, dabbing your brush in there like a painter. It makes me feel oh so creative and skilled – except I am not that skilled, or talented, on the creative front. Boooo. But I can oh so pretend to my heart’s content.
Anyways, this is Full Fuchsia and you can see it is a hair more purple and deeper than the fucshia shade I have from Kevyn Aucoin’s The Creamy Glow in Liquifucshia. Liquifucshia has this vibrancy that I love. Full Fuchsia can be used to tone down the vibrancy of Liquifuchsia, but also impart a richer, multi-dimensional fuchsia flush. It can also anchor the color so that the cream blush doesn’t fade away or migrate on oily skin. I likes. Hate to say it, but it NEVER occurred to me to actually layer blushes, especially powders over creams, until I started this blog. #FACEPALM. #FAIL.
Here are the swatches.
