MAC Modest Blush & Sweet Sentiment Mineralize Blushes

MAC Modest Blush Mineralize Blush ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light baby salmon pink.” It’s a light-medium, muted pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish.

Sneak Peek: Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O’ Blushes Photos & Swatches

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Box O’ Blushes ($36.00 for 1.08 oz.) includes six powder blushes and a cream highlighter–all shades from Benefit’s permanent line-up in a metal tin. A few of these I haven’t tested in a long time, so now seems like a good time to re-test and re-review (to update swatches, photos, dupes, and all that jazz!). I had actually re-photographed my permanent Box O’ Powders a few months ago but haven’t had time to test all of them yet, so this palette is quite timely! I bought mine at Sephora, but it is also available at ULTA last I saw.
