MAC Jeanius: The Blushes!

Hello everyone! As I'm sure many of you already know, MAC recently released a new collection called Jeanius, inspired by denim. The collection features a variety of products including eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, and lip glosses. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed with the color selection for most of the products, but the two blushes really caught my eye.

The first blush is called Pink Cult, and it is a dusty pink matte color. It reminds me a lot of MAC Tenderling blush but a hint darker and a little more pink. This color looks pretty unexciting in the pan, and even swatched on skin, but on the cheeks it is actually quite beautiful. I would only recommend this for light to medium skin tones though... the dusty tint to it will definitely pull ashy grey on darker complexions.

The next blush is my favorite of the two, called Overdyed. I think this color is so gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming spring/summer season. It is a bright magenta, but is surprisingly very wearable on me! It is a satin, so it can be applied fairly sheer, yet is still buildable. It gives me noticeably bright pink cheeks, but not so much that I look clowny. I recommend this to all skin tones... I think light skin tones can wear it if a very light hand is used. If you have extremely light skin (NC/NW 5-15), I personally would skip it.

  2. Where did you take these photos (the white surface)? I keep trying out different places/surfaces to take photos for my blog, and still haven't found the perfect one.

  3. At first glance I wasn't crazy over it then at second glance I was in love with it. I don't know why but I think the way they designed the eyeshadows is adorable. Overall I am interested in trying most of this collection

  4. Pink Cult looks interesting, but I'm sort of disenchanted with MAC at this point. They need to quit releasing a new collection every ten minutes.

  12. Pink Cult looks good but I agree with Anna, they seem to be bringing out too many collections; it is overwhelming!

  14. Would you mind posting about what you plan on buying from the new collections before they come out? I always seem to miss out on the popular colors because they are gone before I learn about them.

  17. Overdyed looks really nice.
    Pink Cult looks kind of boring. I think you can only wear it if your skin is very light.

  21. Pink Cult is GORGEOUS! I've been looking for a new blush recently...I might decide to try a cream formula, though. Still, they are both so amazing, and love the Jeanius collection overall, especially how cutely the eyeshadows are designed.
