Shhh… did you hear that? I think it’s the sound of a new MAC obsession being born (aww!).
MAC’s Cream Colour Base in Hush ($16.50) isn’t a new product (it’s part of the permanent line), but it was new to me when our paths crossed a couple weeks ago.
Like the rest of the Cream Colour Bases, shimmery Hush feels like a creamy blush to the touch. I’ve been using it all sorts of different ways, but my favorite way? — using it as a highlighter.
It adds a really pretty subtle glow to peach and pink blushes, in particular, like when it’s layered with a Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Blusher Brush on the tops of my cheeks bones, at my temples or down the bridge of my nose after foundation, powder and blush.
I’m not always up for doing a full face of makeup, and that’s where Hush REALLY shines.
For a fresh and dewy look, sometimes I’ll start with a little tinted moisturizer, then add some Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Blush on the apples of my cheeks and finish with Hush applied to my upper cheek bones.
But even though it’s a great highlighter, it’s a lot more than just that. Like MAC Pearl (been my go-to Cream Colour Base for years), it also makes the colors of powder eyeshadows, blushes and beauty powders richer when they’re layered on top.
TIP: If you decide to use Hush as an eyeshadow base, keep the color on your lids and not in the crease or on your brow bone (and don’t use too much). It tends to makes things migrate around the eyelids if you aren’t too careful.
Hush! Try these colors on for size
I’ve heard some gals say they have trubs blending Hush, and they feel it has a chunky texture, but I don’t see that at all. As a matter of fact, I think Hush’s gorgeous color and flexibility both qualify it for early Unsung Hero status. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
