My Small Collection of MAC Limited Edition Blushes

I don’t own many MAC blushes and the few that I have in my stash are from previous limited edition releases. I got them just because they seem to be a little more unique than most of their regular blush range. I also purchased them at the time of release so I can avoid having to hunt them down on eBay if I changed my mind ;-)

MAC Tippy Beauty Powder Blush from Hello Kitty Collection (Spring 2009)
Okay, I must admit I got this blush just because it has Hello Kitty on it. Tippy is a bright, blue-toned pink. It looks rather loud in the pan but if you use a light hand and blend, it looks very pretty on skin. It imparts a strawberry pink flush and I absolutely love it. This blush would probably suit those with cooler or neutral undertones better and I think will look lovely on those with deeper skin tones.

MAC Ripe Peach and Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre from Spring Colour Forecast Collection (Spring 2010)
Both these blushes were released last year, just shortly before Give Me Liberty came out. I think they look absolutely gorgeous and so very unique too. In the pan, they both have a gradation effect that looks really quite pretty. Azalea Blossom is a blend of pinks and purples and it goes on with a slight sheen. Between the two blushes, this suits my skin tone better and the slight hint of lavender makes it a bit more interesting than just regular pink. Ripe Peach is a golden, peachy-orange and it reminds me of a sunset. The colour is really beautiful! I tend to apply with a light hand as it can sometimes be a tad bit warm on me. They are both larger than a regular MAC blush, weighing at 8.9g each.

MAC Prim and Proper Powder Blush from Give Me Liberty of London Collection (Spring 2010)
MAC collaborated with Liberty’s and came up with a colourful range of cosmetics that set many a collector’s heart a-flutter. I actually find the bird on the cover a wee bit scary-looking but I picked up Prim and Proper anyway because I do not have a similar shade in my stash. It is described as a neutral nude, which is fairly accurate. On me, it appears as a pinkish nude with a light sheen. The texture is soft and smooth and really easy to apply. I think it will look nice on most skin tones. This blush is my favourite of the lot.

What’s your favourite MAC blush and which shade from their permanent line or seasonal releases would you highly recommend? Do tell as I’m looking for ideas and plan to explore more MAC blushes :-)

I'm not usually a fan of MAC, so I'm not bothered with their limited edition pieces (or any of their regulars, for that matter). But I am kicking myself hard for not evening noticing the Ripe Peach blush because that would have been so up my alley. I mean, how pretty is that?? :P

Thanks, plue! I'm such a silly kid at heart and love Hello Kitty :-) And the power of makeup is amazing, you can fake good skin ;-)

Thanks for the recommendations! Oh, I am so glad I got both those blushes before they were sold out.

Sadly, I forgot to take a photo. I'll try to do one of those 'Face of the Day' posts and feature the blush :-)

Thank you! They are both so unique. I've seen gradated blushes before but nothing like these two.

Thanks, sweetie! It is my favourite and the pan is actually much prettier in person.

Thanks, Jamilla :-) These blushes make me so happy just by looking at them.

If you're lucky, they just might re-promote Ripe Peach in a future collection ;-) I'm not a big fan of MAC myself but these blushes were too pretty to pass.

I have never purchased anything from MAC for myself but purchased a Tartan eye palette for a friend's birthday. I might pickup a blush next time if it goes on sale on strawberrynet :P am not a fan of any LE but if it's nice, will pick it up nonetheless :D

I used to be a big fan of MAC many years ago but lost interest over the years. These days, I'd only pick something up if it's unique. But you know, they started the crazy LE trend and now every cosmetic company is following suit.

Actually I did but I forgot and overwrote my memory card! One fine day, I'll feature it in another post ;-)
