Today’s blushes are all about being pretty in pink. Well Dressed is pale and cool (and slightly mauvey). Pink Swoon is just slightly warmer… but still cool. Well Dressed has a bit of a sheen to it; Pink Swoon is matte.
Dollymix is a high sheen, medium, “satin” pink (I call it that because I picture swishy dresses). Full Fuchsia is… fuchsia, and it reflects white (you can see the sheen in the picture). Azalea is maybe just slightly more atomic.
MAC’s potted blushes are $18.50; the pans are $15.50. To buy a pro shade, you can visit a pro store, or call 1-800-387-6707.
So what brush do you use to apply your blush? Everybody has her (or his) own preference. Some folks like a duo fibre, or skunk, brush, because it applies diffusely, keeping you from putting on too much. It’s a good way to apply a loud blush.
My personal preference is for something like MAC’s 129, which is a paddle-shaped (not uniformly round), domed blush brush.
