MAC Beauty Powder Blush


MAC just came out with a set of 8 different blushes:

  • Shy Beauty
  • Feeling
  • Sweetness
  • Joyous
  • True Romantic
  • Serenely
  • Eversun
  • Secret Blush

 I like them all because of the pearlized pigments but I honeslty think that most of them are too light for darker complexions. If you are a NW 45 or darker, I would recommend Sweet Romantic or Secret Blush. If you are lighter, they can all work depending of the look you are going for…

    Your honest opinion helped! I think I’ll pass. I have to start saving for summer collections.

    I would have to disagree Eva.. Joyous and Serenely are beautiful on darker skin tones and I am NW55. However, I do agree that Sweetness will leave u an ashy mess if you are NW45 or darker. I know this from experience or maybe it is not good for photography.

    I am always very careful when it comes to blushes on darker complexion. It may look good when you look at it and you do not apply a lot but if you are on camera or take pics, you will see the ashy look on the face… I tried Joyous but wasn’t crazy about it…For me, the best blushes for darker complexions are the dark/bright colors like raizin, lovercrush etc. I am also a big fan of Format… I would love to see how Joyous and sweetness look on you…let me know if you have a pic…

    I stopped by MAC this afternoon and I had a look at the blushes. I wasn’t impressed. Serenely looked beautiful but it was too reddish for me. So I picked up Raizin which looks great with Sweet as Cocoa. I tried format but it looked a bit subtle on me. Do you usually wear it alone or with another blush? thank you.

    I’m NC45 and I have six of the Beauty Powder Blushes. I’m really enjoying them.

    I don’t wear MAC foundation so I’m not sure but I think I am NC45 (think Sanaa Lathan-ish) and Format can be a little too deep if I don’t apply with a light hand. I really want a brown skin friendly pink blush but I don’t want to look ashy either. Joyous looks really pretty to me.

    I love all your blushes! I have sweetness too, it’s really sweet – as it’s called sweetness too 😉
