MAC Tres Cheek 2014

Three of the four MAC Tres Cheek 2014 Blushes

You might remember these MAC cuties from waaaay back in the day — like, um, 2012, LOL!

MAC quietly re-released four of the six shades from 2012’s fabulous Tres Cheek collection of blushes on this week.

Remember Tres Cheek? It had some majorly memorable shades. Smooth textures, fresh colors and some of the most natural-looking, wearable shades I’d seen from the line.

If ya missed them the first time around, here’s a second chance to grab bright pink Lovecloud, lavender Full of Joy, reddish orange Modern Mandarin and/or bright bluish pink Peony Petal ($20 each) while they’re available online. They’ll also be coming to counters April 3.

I love the three I’ve been wearing from this new batch — Lovecloud, Modern Mandarin and Full of Joy — just as much as I did back when I first met them in 2012. Just as flawless, smooth and fresh on my cheeks as I remember them, and with that all-day wear time I love so much!


I actually can’t remember right now whey I ever stopped wearing them.

Gonna put them back in rotation ASAP. 🙂

    Which ones you think are well suit for my NC42 skin (I know we use the same shade but I think I have more yellow-golden undertones)?

    I really want to splurge in good makeup instead of experimenting with brands I can’t try on.

  13. JAEISFANCY says:

    You read my mind, I was looking through your archives yesterday to see swatches. so glad you are posting these swatches especially because I use the same foundation shade as you!!

  14. Ashley Celikay says:

    I have always wanted Full Of Joy. I am obsessed with lavender tones. I hope I can get my hands on it.

    Full of Joy is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I have a lavender maybeline bouncy blush, I don’t love the texture but the color is so pretty! So I just ordered it along with the lighter purple fluidline that came out earlier this year, since it was restocked!

  20. Cindy says:

    Love those colors!! Very Subtle!

  21. Liz says:

    I have wanted a lavender blush for some time now and Full of Joy was specifically recommended to me. Gotta have it.

  22. Jen says:

    I got Lovecloud when it was first released, and I love it! I wore it today, in fact.
