I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak at four of these last week. The texture is just divine and so easy to blend out. As an interesting side note, Sweetness looked like the secret twin sister Fafi blush Fashion Frenzy.

Thats great to know Tekoa 🙂 because right now the Fafi blush, Fashion Frenzy, is my all time fav color!! It just looks so amazingly beautiful on!!

I have Sweetness. The color is so bright but I have yet to wear it. 🙂 I heard that it packs on color like Azalea so use with caution.

Oh man I can’t wait for these!!! Fafi, Beauty Powder Blush, Strobe AND Viva Glam VI SE all come out on the same day!! I will be so broke, but so happy, lol.

Stacey Avatar

I know! I’ve never been more excited in my life, lol. I think I’m going to have to purchase a lot more storage stuff that day because my collection is going to be HUGE(er) 🙂

I can’t wait for these to come out…I love beauty powders and wish they had more color payoff. These are perfect solution and the colors look AWESOME.

I had bought True Romantic and its indeed beautiful. The quality is very fine with just the right amount of shimmers, love it.

I bought true romantic and love it. I am an NC25 and it looks great on my skin. Reading some of the reviews on another sight i noticed it is compared to afterdusk and coygirl. I ran to my makeup case and noticed I had those 2 blushes already and they were used up (tucked in the back of the drawer). Who knew makeup could make one so happy:)

I have all of them already and they are very beautiful. But yes, they are very pigmented so don’t use to much (or use with a light hand) especially with the brighter colors! The texture is very fine and they give you a great glow!

And yes, we here in The Netherlands a very fortunate since they are already out in the Mac store here!!!

The family relations come out of the woodwork! Looks like I’ll be passing on Joyous and Sweetness since I already have the Fafi blushes.

I have sweetness already and its gorgeous and this after noon im off to buy joyous, true romantic, shy beauty and maybe secret blush. This is the first time ive bought a mac collection without your reviews 🙁

These were released today in England and i bought Eversun which is a lovely peachy bronze with a gold shimmer. It’s so pretty! I thought that Sweetness was a lot like Fafi’s fashion frenzy, only it was brighter and had a pearly sheen to it. I might return in the week to purchase it but I think I’m going to play around with fashion frenzy before I do decide and part with more cash!

The blushes are a lot more pigmented than I thought they would be and I have to be more light handed with my EverSun. I really love the colours in this collection and might just end up purchasing Secret Blush and Sweetness!

I’ve also had a look at those, and they are as gorgeous as they say, finely milled, with very subtle shimmer. The colours above are not really correct, you will find that the blushes look a bit different. I bought True Romantic as well, even though I thought I would go for Joyous. True Romantic looks plummy, but gives a gorgeous cold pinky shimmer, very natural and perfect for that pastelly Marie Antoinette- look!
I live in Sweden, btw..

I’m going to get at least 7 of them because they are updated colors. There’s nothing worse than wearing colors that are so yesterday to ruin a makeup look…ok, well there really are worse things but ya know what i mean

I have sweetness, shy beauty and joyous. All are gorgeous colours and come out sheer if you use a skunk brush. The finish is amazing – so glowy and beautiful!
