MAC Hot Nights Powder Blush is for those times when you want your cheeks to look like they’re “glistening” (let’s not call it sweating; it’s not nearly as cute), like after some hot hubba-hubba action or a seriously vigorous elliptical session at the gym.
Got time? I hope so, because I wouldn’t even bother with this berry pink unless I had a few extra minutes for blending. That’s how pigmented it is. But I think it’s worth every second, especially if the theme of your evening is, “huntress on the prowl…”
Where Ripe For Love, the other blush from the Temperature Rising collection, can pull off naughty or nice, Hot Nights can’t.
Because it’s straight up naughty (which is nice).
There’s something wanton and reckless about it, like standing too close to someone you know is off limits but you really, really want to kiss.
I think it’s the frosty finish…
If you decide to take Hot Nights out for a spin, treat it to tanned skin, or wear it with copious amounts of bronzer, or layer it on top of a shimmery golden highlighter like MAC’s Golden Elixir Strobe Liquid Lotion (also from the Temperature Rising collection) for cheeks that blaze with fiery desire.
Best for: pigment fanatics, or anyone with bronzed or tanned skin, a naughty streak and extra time to blend.
