I can see myself clutching these three blushes against my bosom, falling to my knees and screaming “Why? WHY!?” at the top of my lungs.
In this fugue state/daydream, I’m alone at the top of a hill in the pouring rain under an angry sky as thunder booms all around me.
Suddenly, RyGos appears out of nowhere, and when he pulls his shirt up to reveal his chiseled, almost porcelain abs, the clouds above our heads part, the rain immediately stops, and finches following sunbeams down through the opening in the clouds start singing.
Ah… I refuse to believe that this scenario is not entirely possible.
Anyway, it’s absolute and total crap that At Dusk, Autoerotique and Pleasure Model from the new Magnetic Nude collection aren’t permanent blushes in the MAC line.
From a couple feet away, these Satin finish blushes look like mattes on my cheeks, but I can definitely see a subtle shine up close in the right light.
I love it. It breathes a lot of life into these colors makes them much more than basic matte blushes.
And then there’s the way they keep my pores — which you can now see from across the Milky Way, for real! — on the D.L. for 8-10 hours.
The pink, coral and copper shades look quite natural in pics (don’t they?), and like the Magnetic Nude Extra Dimension Eye Shadows, I bet I’d be able to apply and blend these while soaring through the air as a flying trapeze.
Do yourself a solid, and swatch at least one of these on a future trip to a MAC counter.
Oh, and if you happen to be curious about blush but don’t have a lot of blush experience, ask a MAC artist to put a little on you while you’re there.
Trust me. It won’t look fake, and you won’t have crazy clown cheeks, either.
