MAC A Rose Romance hits counters today and I have a feeling that the blushes from this collection will be all the rage.
MAC collectors will want to take a gander at A Rose Romance beauty powders ($22 US) with a rose-shape embossed into them. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a total advocate for beauty powders, I always urge folks to pick one up!
However, in testing the beauty powder in Summer Rose I found that my brush didn’t pick up as much color as blushes normally do. I wonder if it’s because of the imprint and if that plays a factor. In order to swatch the shade, I couldn’t use my fingers, I had to use a tissue to wipe some of it from the pan and onto my hand.
Summer Rose (right) is a blue-based violet pink with subtle pearl that reminded me of True Romance at first glance. It’s definitely pigmented and becomes easy to apply again once that top film is worn or wiped off.
Just a Pinch Gel Blush ($18.50 US) is a fun product for me since I’m a novice when it comes to wearing gel/cream/stains on my cheeks. I loved swatching this sheer raspberry shade (left) onto my hand. The texture is not sticky at all and feels like a thin, lightweight film that’s easy to apply. Just a Pinch is sheer enough to give a rosy glow but is easily buildable to medium coverage if you want more color.
I think I’m going to do a summer FOTD with Just a Pinch Gel Blush later today to share with you
What do you think of MAC’s new A Rose Romance cheek products? Let me know if you found the beauty powders to be a little hard to work with like I did, maybe I just got a bad seed.
