    long time no post..so..long post!

    lol..i can't think of a dumber title..hehe!


    I just don't know where to start with all of these collections coming out..i mean, is MAC trying to gang up on us with all these releases, what, like a week or a few days apart?..aye yay yay!..why can't they do it at least every 2 weeks, so we'll be ready with our crisp paychecks..i seriously was caught off guard with the Heatherette collection being released a week early..i know everyone was just excited to get their hands on 'em and heck yea me too, but with the damage the beauty powder blushes has done to my pocket, i almost did not make it for Heatherette..lol..okay okay..a lil over dramatic..but you get the point..

    Product Pictures:


    TOP: SWEETNESS, SECRET BLUSH, JOYOUS
    BOTTOM: TRUE ROMANTIC, EVERSUN, SHY BEAUTY

    For reference on what they look like without flash:

    TOP: SHY BEAUTY, EVERSUN, SECRET BLUSH
    BOTTOM: SWEETNESS, JOYOUS, TRUE ROMANTIC

    left: Hipness blush (Fafi) right: Joyous (BPB)

    they look very similar, even in person, i haven't tried swatching them side by side yet, but if you have Hipness, you might want to pass up on Joyous, or if you're a MAC whore like me, then get it!lol

    left: Fashion Frenzy (Fafi) right: Sweetness (BPB)

    i swatched them both at the store, and the only slight difference there is, is that Sweetness BPB just has more blue undertones than Fashion Frenzy. Sweetness is a tad bit brighter than Fashion Frenzy..but "brightness" can be easily achieved with layering which is basically applying more, right?..so, again, if you have Fashion Frenzy, then you'll probably don't need to pick up Sweetness..

    then here are swatches..i forgot which is which..gaaah..well, just thought i'd post it anyway for preference how pigmented they are. i'm NC 37 by the way..

    with flash

    they are pretty pigmented, eh?

    without flash


    To wrap this up:
    I really like how they are in between beauty powder and blush..(uh duh, hence the title)..i mean, they have enough pigment to be worn alone as blush, and the very minimal shimmer, or should i say sheen it has just gives you the right glow. i would say these blushes are goof-proof meaning you'll never go wrong with them..love!

    I hope this helps..:)

    ok, so much for being a long post..haha..photobucket just takes a long ass time to deal with..and plus being side-tracked with reading other beauty blogs always doesn't help with getting things done fast..so my Heatherette haul and swatches will have to wait to be showcased maybe tomorrow..ahh..nothing big really though..

    Til then, good night!..


    MwahMwah!

    they look really pretty on me. On my skin(NW50), i found them to be too sheer and they needed to be layered with another blush. So I passed. Eversun looks like it can be used as a bronzer
