I can’t remember the last MAC blush I bought. Oh, wait-it probably was Supercontinental from the whatever whosits collection from that season of past. HONESTLY. Who can keep up with MAC and their collections? It is beyond my comprehension and if you do then you deserve a gold star. [emoji white medium star] I personally, gives up. Don’t get me wrong, I like MAC a lot, but I don’t live and die by the plethora of collections they release.
But that doesn’t mean that I SEE what’s coming up. I am a beauty blogger, and by nature I SEES all the good stuffs coming out. Doesn’t mean I run to my MAC counter to buy everything up(MAN I remember in the 90s lining up outside the stores before they opened up for their Christmas collections-anybody else remember those days??) but I do keep a mental note of what I see that I actually like and might want.
And when I saw these MAC Proenza Schouler Ombre blushes-well, ya know. BLUSH. And Ombre! I really wanted the one called Ocean City, but alas the MAC Junkies and orange blush lovers bought that one up TOOT SWEET(gonna make it happen I tell ya), so Sunset Beach was my only choice. And I’m quite HAPPY about that actually!
Ombre blushes really make your blush fiend heart skip a beat, hey? So pretty!
Now I know that everyone reads Temptalia for MAC makeup reviews. I do too, but not regularly though, because I do like to avoid a lot of the BIG makeup bloggers that get everything so that I can formulate my own opinion, if ya’ know what I mean. But the morning that my MAC Proenza Schouler Sunset Beach Blush was delivered on my doorstep, there popped up her review of this same blush: F. AN F RATING she gave it! Needless to say I was terribly bummed out, and thought I had made a big mistake, and WHY did I order this blush because GOSH DARN it Tracy you know better than ordering something without touching it first.
PFFFT. I don’t know, but I disagree with her rating COMPLETELY. Mine is WONDERFUL. It’s soft, buttery, finely milled, pigmented and blends like a dream. I think there’s been some quality issues with manufacturing, and some of these blushes AREN’T like the others. But mine? Is NICE. It’s pretty much a natural flush for me as you can see and I ADORE when a blush can do that. And MAC Proenza Schoiuler Sunset Beach Blush does just that. Perfectly.
I’m pretty sure you can still find MAC Proenza Schouler Sunset Beach Blush on counters right now if you really want to take a look at it. Ocean City on the other hand, is pretty much a no-go, which annoys me to NO END. Why does MAC do that still? I find it rather….IMMATURE. Grow up MAC. Sell your products like an ADULT for makeup’s sake. And I do feel like you really should touch this one before buying because of the discrepancy in texture that’s been happening.
Do you live and die by the MAC LE SWORD? Or are you like me, and MAC makes you ANNOYED. I’m old, and I don’t have time for this BULL CRAP of having to stay up all night to order something, or lineup for 3 hours to get a…BLUSH. Not gonna happen MAC. But toot Sweet? OH, YEAH-that’s gonna happen. [emoji face with stuck-out tongue]
