MAC Her Blooming Cheek Blush

MAC Her Blooming Cheek Blush ($18.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a ridiculously pigmented bright fuchsia pink blush with a satin finish. It has a subtle sheen but no shimmer. It is very, very pigmented. I recommend tapping it on and diffusing color with foundation or pressed powder or using a stippling brush like the 187 or 188 so that you can gradually build up color. It has cooler, blue undertones, but it still looks really lovely on warmer skin.

MAC Tartan Tale: Happily Ever After Lip Kit

Happily Ever After Lip Kit ($22.50) is a trio of lip products, featuring one sheer lipglass and two lipsticks. This is a very pink-themed lip palette that does run a bit cool-toned, but it’s very wearable for both cool and warm skin tones.  Lip palettes tend to be a hate it or love it kind of product; either you love the utility and portability of them or find them impractical and frustrating. I belong to the latter camp, so I’ve always leaned towards MAC’s Lip Bags during the holidays!

MAC Tartan Tale: A Fabulous Fantasy Lip Kit

A Fabulous Fantasy Lip Kit ($22.50) is a trio of lip products, featuring one sheer lipglass and two lipsticks.  There’s a nice variety in the finishes, and they do seem to coordinate well–they are all a touch on the warm side, but not too warm.  Lip palettes tend to be a hate it or love it kind of product; either you love the utility and portability of them or find them impractical and frustrating.  I belong to the latter camp, so I’ve always leaned towards MAC’s Lip Bags during the holidays!
