I’d wear sweet samba blush with calypso beat cremesheen glass from the same collection and mascara.

I’m going to wear Simmer with a bright summer eye look – most likely an opaque cobalt eyeliner and some gold/coral/bronze blended onto my lid – plus lots and lots of mascara!

I’d wear this with my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua all over. I’d even out my under eye circles with Benefit’s Boi-ing and Laura Mercier Brightening Powder. I’d do a neutral eye with winged liner so that the cheeks really stand out!

I would wear these all year round! I find mineralize blushes suit me well since my skin is more on the dry side, it gives me a glow

I would wear any of these to a fun day at the beach or to a pool party with a fresh neutral look and my favorite MAC lipglass.

Hi Kim,

The rules state: This contest is open to all participants unless prohibited by their local state/country.

Could you let me know what contest you’re referring to? The majority of our contests are open to all readers, and that has always been the case! There are very few that are not.

I’d wear MAC Simmer with some gold and copper eyeshadow, similar but darker liner, and mascara! Maybe a sheer, shimmery nude lip.

The colors from these blushes are amazing to wear everyday, I would use them with a neutral eye and bold lips.

I love Simmer and Sweet Samba. I’d wear them both as a blush and highlight with soft smokey eye and a natural lip.

I love them all. The orange one looks a little intimidating, but I guess with a light hand I might work. Thank you Christine.

I’d wear these daily with any look probably, but perhaps more of a neutral eye with bold lip being the go-to with these blushes. c:

I would wear Sweet Samba with a neutral, natural eye and a soft pop of color on the lips for a bright and glowy summer look. =]

I’d wear them with bronze smokey eyes and a nude lipstick with orange undertones for that sun kissed look (:
Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

Since they all have shimmer in them, I would pair them with a neutral matte eye! And nothing on the lips, I just don’t usually wear anything on my lips! πŸ™‚

Sweet Samba is definitely my favourite of the bunch. I’d wear it quite lightly though to give a relatively natural look and wear a purpley-pink lipstick along with a light dusting of grey shadow on the eyes and a cat liner.

Sweet Samba Mineralize Blush would work really well with a tropical colored eye: Cha-Cha-Cha Mineralize Eyeshadow on the outer third, Tropica Mineralize Eyeshadow on the middle, and Dare to Bare Mineralize Eyeshadow on the inner corner.

I’d wear sweet samba with chanel gold eyeshadow and nars isola bella satin lip pencil to get a hint of pink gold and nude!

I’d wear it over some BB and with waterproof black eyeliner..and some waterproof mascara..Labello on my lips..and of to the beach:))))

I’d wear any of the three products lightly with a bold lipstick and simple eye look for a pretty summer look.

I’d wear the orange and brown blush with a shimmery golden highlight and then a golden eyeshadow for the lids then maybe a reddish-orange lipstick to top it off

I’d wear Simmer as an eyeshadow on the lid. I’d love to wear it as a highlight on my cheekbones, nose, and above my brows. Of course I’d use them as a blush. So beautiful! My current favorite blush is MAC’s mineralize blush in Handfinish I love pairing it with my clinique coral blush.

Honestly these are so versatile, they could be used as eyeshadow, highlight, patted over a lipstick or lipgloss to add dimension, as well their intended use as a blush.

I would wear Exotc Ember as an eyeshadow for various looks. I am on the darker side, so I can’t see wearing this as a blush or highlighter, but it is a beautiful and very interesting combination. I would experiment with swirling and using the two tones independently.

How I would use the lighter one as a highlighter and the pinker one as a blush and the bronzer one when I dont want to wear a blush I can just use that so I could have a little bit of color and have a bold lip

In celebration of my birthday July 6th, I will wear one (or more) of the three blushes every day for the rest of the summer! Summer babies unite!

I would use these as a great light pop of color on the cheeks for summer time! Something to show off tanned skin πŸ˜€

Hello Christine πŸ™‚ I would love to win these MAC products because since I am struggling with school, I can’t afford MAC. I really love makeup and this would really help build my collection. Thanks for the opportunity πŸ™‚

Hi! I would wear MAC Sweet Samba with a lightweight semi matte foundation, a good concealer and only mascara on the eyes (but plenty of it) ! Also, very polished but not overdrawn eyebrows! and i’d darkened them a bit since I love having this sort of contrast with my blond hair and a touch of pink on the cheeks. I think the mineralize formula allows a very simple and healthy looking makeup without overdoing it πŸ™‚

I would wear sweet samba with a neutral smokey eye with ud junkie eye pencil and Mac Ronnie red lipstick and a little Laguna bronzer

I would wear exotic ember blush with a bronze smokey eye (using Mac’s Woodwinked and amberlights) and Mac’s Myth lipstick w/Angel Lipglass over it. I would wear simmer blush with a bold purple eye ( using MAC stars & rockets and Hepcat ) and MAC Rebel on the lips. I would wear sweet samba blush with a neutral eye (using Mac’s Light Touch Pressed Pigment) and Mac’s Vegas Volt on the lips.

I’d wear fresh skin makeup with the orange color from the blush that has the orange and brown duo colors. The orange from that blush is perfecttttt. ((^__^))/*

i will use these blushes to give a nice healthy glow to my cheeks!! they will be perfect blushes to replace my highlighter, blush, bronzer for my summer light make up! thanks!

I’d wear these blushes with a black cat eye and lots of mascara, the blush colours look rather bright, so I’d keep the rest of my makeup minimal. I’d use the golden colour in one of the blushes as a highlight and be done with the look!

Mineralize blushes are amazing for highlights, this collection I would use particularly in place of both blush and bronzer to brighten and warm my complexion

I just bought Simmer, and I can’t wait to try it with my Shape the Future MSF for a perfect glowy finsh on my NC45 skin! If the others look this pretty, I’m sure I’ll find lots of combinations for them too!

I’ve been so into dramatic blush as of late…I would certainly get a kick out of experimenting with these different colors!

I will add a pop of colour on my cheeks because these blushes are perfect for summer. I have a colourful summer dress which is like all 3 blushes together – rainbow.

I would love to wear these blushes! they look lovely and versatile for any look πŸ™‚ Also I would probably double them as an eye accent so my eyes and cheeks complement one another.

How would I use this, I dunno they’re so pretty I wanna roll around in them! lol Such an exciting giveaway, thanks!

These would go perfect with my skin tone. I would wear MAC Sweet Samba with my ‘tropical colors’ eye look – gold, champange, and purple, with purple eyeliner on top.
