MAC POWDER BLUSH
DOLLYMIX (SHEERTONE SHIMMER)
DESCRIPTION: Medium/Dark berry pink powder blush with a slight shimmer.
COST: $18.50 USD $40 AUD
PERFECT FOR: Those wanting a blush that gives you that natural flushed look, but can also be built up for a more intense color.
APPLY WITH: Blush brush (116, 129, 168).
REVIEW: I purchased my MAC blush off the MAC website. I chose Dollymix because I wanted a really bright medium to dark pink blush.
MAC blushes come in different finishes (E.g. matte, satin, sheertone etc) and Dollymix is a sheertone shimmer finish. I love sheertone shimmer finishes because with a light hand they give you a nice natural hint of color. The color can also be built up if you want something more intense. The shimmer is also nice, not too sparkly, just perfect.
In the pan, Dollymix looks very scary bright pink. But don’t be scared by what it looks like in the pan, because it actually comes out a very nice natural medium/dark pink color. I find this color gives you that lovely healthy flushed look that’s not too over the top.
The texture of the blush is quite smooth and when applied does not look powdery. What I love about MAC blushes is that they don’t go powdery and cakey when you want to build up the color.
OVERALL: Dollymix is my HG blush! The subtle dark pink color and the shimmer are just perfect. Seriously, if you don’t have this blush you must go out and get it! Highly recommended.
