WOW, looks like MAC knocked it out of the ballpark with these blushes!!! Love the pigment and glowy finish, looks like I will need to pick some up!

I have Fairly Precious (swatches posted yesterday) and Into the Pink (swatches posted today) and Rosy Cheeks and Sweets for my Sweet arrive today. I’m still considering getting Cheeky Bits. I should have the other 2 swatches up tomorrow/Saturday. I’m very pleased with what I have so far…

Hi Denise. I suspended my actual blog last year (it was too time consuming to “do it right” with a full time job but may start it again at some point) but I still post swatches daily on my IG and Twitter which is @Binxcat4ever. I do always answer any questions someone sends me. You’re also more than welcome to send me a fr on FB. It’s my personal account and I do sometimes post “personal” things but not a ton of non-makeup stuff. The FB is (Michele Snavely). Oh, and thank you 🙂

Color-wise (on my monitor at least), Rosy Cheeks looks to be very close to the hot pink shade in Nars Adorable. I’m looking forward to seeing the dupe list and review. Clear, bright rosy blushes call out to me every.single.time. Can anyone recommend a cream blush dupe for the Nars Adorable hot pink shade?

Thank goodness these are permanent! I want Glow With It, Superb, Cheeky Bits, Just A Pinch, and Telling Glow. These look really lovely, although, I need to exercise some restraint. I think I may start with one SF and one Blush. Decisions, decisions!!!

So pleased these are permanent, there’s a few shades that I definitely want, just need to wait for payday. Love the swatches

Oh, I am in SUCH trouble….I want all of the cooler toned blushes – Wrapped Candy, Rosy Cheeks, In the Pink and even Sweet for My Sweet (which looks a bit peachier). Oh, these are SO gorgeous looking and the finishes look out of this world. And I haven’t even looked at the highlighters! I may pass on the Becca blushes I was thinking of getting in favour of these beauties!

I use Superb as an eye shadow color. I’d like to get Hard to Get for the same thing, but MAC uses carmine in most of their reddish colors, and carmine is a deal-breaker for me. I will check it out just in case because I like the color.

These look absolute gorgeous! I’m glad I’ll have an opportunity to finally get Oh Darling.
Sweets for my Sweet and Cheeky Bits also look good. I’m curious as to whether these are better than Becca’s Luminous blushes? The real test will be whether to buy them now from MAC or wait to get them from Ulta.

Great finish on these. As usual, drawn to the darker, more intense shades, like wrapped candy and hard to get, which probably explains why my blushes have very small dents! Maybe this time I’ll try out something more subdued. Kick it down a notch. Lots to like here.

I walked through Nordstrom and I had to try it. Hushed Tone is stunning and still going strong hours later. I didn’t buy it because I don’t need it but I did walk out with the new #140 Full Fan Brush. It’s a thing of beauty.

Does anyone experience breakouts from this product? Some MAC face items give me breakouts, and I want to know if I should even attempt to use this product. They look gorgeous! D:
