Within the last two years Iâ€™ve developed a serious blush addiction, so I wanted to get the pink blush, Donâ€™t Be Shy, but they ran out. I recently got Dollymix and Iâ€™ve been using that as my go-to pink blush for the past two months so I wasnâ€™t too disappointed.
Fab looks a bit dark in person, but Iâ€™ve found that itâ€™s kind of sheer on my skin so it takes a while for the color to build and I have to add a few layers. The MAC website describes Fab as a â€œmid-tone plum with gold pearl,â€ but on me it looks like a reddish brown with gold flecks. I use a 129 Blush Brush with it and gently bounce the brush on the apples of my cheeks to get a soft brown cheek.
Both Beauty Powders are to die for â€“ Iâ€™m seriously thinking about purchasing backups. Iâ€™ve been looking for a highlighter without disco-ball glitter and the Beauty Powders deliver a subtle, tasteful shimmer. You can use Pearl Sunshine as an all-over highlighter and as a brow highlighter. Pearl Blossom is also a great highlighter and can also be used to brighten up your inner eye. Use a small, fluffy eye brush like MACâ€™s 217 blending brush and tap the powder gently over your concealer to instantly get a bright-eyed look.
I purchased Style It Up Lipglass and Fashion Pack Lipstick because Iâ€™m currently on the hunt for my holy grail neutral lip. I was first a little scared by the â€œFrostâ€ in Style it Up but when applied found that the frost is very subtle, not scary like the Wet & Wild frost lipsticks from the 80s. I line my lips first with Subculture lipliner, and use the 316 Lip Brush to first add Style it Up. I then blot and then dab Fashion Pack on with the same brush. Love it!
I tried to order the Barbie Loves MAC T-shirt online but itâ€™s on backorder for the next two weeks, boo hoo! The makeup artists at the MAC counter were wearing them this weekend and the shirts are really cute in person. If I do end up getting it Iâ€™ll take a pic and post it.
