MAC x Selena Techno Cumbia Powder Blush Duo

MAC Techno Cumbia Blush Duo ($29.00 for TBA oz.) is blush duo that features a split-pan with more of the deeper shade (Blunt) and a smaller portion of the lighter shade (Ven Conmigo). The smaller blush is hard to apply on its own, as it doesn’t accommodate the average blush brush well, and even my smaller blush brushes were too large and I had to pinch the brush head to get it to narrow and fit in the area. This was the weakest product in the collection, so I figured we’d get it out of the way.

P.S. — I’ll be redoing the Eros and Gumball lip swatches later today (not quite as in focus as they should be).
