A Week of Favorites: MAC Extra Dimension Blushes (Alluring Aquatic Collection)
29 Aug 2014
It’s Friday!! Today’s favorites are two blushes from the Alluring Aquatic Collection by MAC, a limited edition collection that came out in May. At first I wasn’t planning on getting them, but when I saw the packaging in person I totally fell in love! I think this is MAC’s coolest packaging to date: pretty teal packaging with 3D water droplets…I love it! Ever since I got these blushes I’ve been basically rotating between them. I can’t help it. They are so beautiful! Below is a closer look.
On the left: MAC Sea Me, Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush. It’s described as a ‘beige pink’. It’s a muted, warm-toned coral with a satiny sheen. The texture is incredibly soft, finely-milled and smooth, but not powdery.
On the right: MAC Seduced at Sea Extra Dimension Blush. It’s described as a ‘mid-tone neutral plum’. It’s a muted, medium orange with a hint of pinky-red and a golden shimmer. It has good color payoff, while the consistency is soft, velvety and smooth. source
These blushes are so soft and smooth! Great color payoff and very easy to apply. They last all day long, even on my oily skin. I love that these blushes are shiny, but there are no big shimmers and they don’t emphasize the pores on my cheeks. Even though the lighter one has much more sheen to it, I like both colors on me. I can’t really pick a favorite! I’m happy I got both!
Unfortunately you can’t get these anymore (they were limited edition obviously), but If you run into them at a blog sale or CCO, grab them! They originally retailed for $27.50 (for 0.22 oz.).
