MAC Blush Palettes

6.4.09

Hey guys! Here is a little peek into my MAC blush palettes and how I organize them. Keep in mind these are just my powder blushes (and just MAC). I don't depot the cream blush or mineral blush or even some of the limited edition ones in cute packaging. I actually depot most of the l.e. ones because the little pots are annoying... I think I only have a couple that are not depotted (HK and Manish Arora)--trust me, it's been hard. I've wanted to depot them so bad! haha
**Also, I removed the inserts in the palettes, which basically serve as little "guides" to place your refill pans in. You don't need them since the entire bottom of the palette is a solid piece of metal, so the whole thing is magnetic. The insert just keeps them straight and separated. To me, removing the insert is worth the extra 2 spaces it provides. Normally, blush palettes hold only 6. With the inserts removed, they hold 8 nicely. Removing the inserts is easy. Just wedge something around the edges and it will pop right out.

(top-bottom, left-right)
Cute (dc'd), Well Dressed, Pinch O' Peach, Blushbaby
Pink Swoon, Dollymix, Peachykeen, X-Rocks (le)


Spaced Out (le), Cantaloupe (pro), Sunbasque, Prism
*Lightsweep (pro, shape powder), Harmony, Sincere, Gingerly
*only shape powder I own in a refill--I have all the shades in le duos--Lightsweep makes for an AWESOME color to use to blend out blush if you've overdone it or to highlight tan/olive skin tones, so I like to keep it handy :)

...and for my favorite. My Beauty Powder Blushes I've depotted. Please note, these ARE NOT the same as a Beauty Powder (see the FAQ section of my blog). They are FABULOUS and I love them. I want to eventually have all the shades. They are le items. I also have the HK Tippy bpb as well, but couldn't bring myself to depot it :) The formulas and the finish of these are just amazing.
(all shades are le)
Enough Said, Shy Beauty, Eversun, Serenely
Secret Blush, Stark Naked, Feeling, On a Mission

So I think I'm set with MAC blush...haha. Next on my list is to hopefully round out my bpb collection with the shades I don't have and I'm also working on a palette with other pro blush colors because they have awesome brights. I'll post that when it's all done and I'm happy with it ;)

Hope this was helpful! I've also done something similar with my MAC eye shadow palettes. Click here for that post. **Keep in mind, that was a few months ago and they've changed DRAMATICALLY since then. New post to come soon on that :)

  6. haha Nice collection...I feel behind. I just ordered my first MAC blush the other day. I've got plenty of e/s but no blushes. Very pretty though. Any ideas what ones would be good for the extremely pale (like almost albino, no foundation is light enough kinda pale)?

  8. Lovely collection and very helpful description. I could not convince myself to depot any of my MAC bpb, blushes or e/s so far. My collection is getting too big and I am running out of space. Do you have any recommendations on how to depot? Many thanks.

  17. Hi Tiffany, what colour blush would you recommend for a silver eyeshadow look & blue eyes & fair skin? I really enjoy watching your tutorials btw - you are so talented!

  18. OMG wanna be you friend to share products with you :D

    I know there are a lot of questions from other girls, but maybe you could help me?! :)

    My skin is a little bit darker than yours I guess and oily with blemishes. What MAC blush would you recommend? I heard I should use a brownish blush because with a rose/pink/red blush the blemishes would come out even more. Is that true?

    I am considering to buy "sunbasque" or "peachykeen". Is that a good choice?

    You are marvelous, and LOVE your blog and tutorials.
