MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush | Dollymix - Review + Swatch

MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush | Dollymix, $22.00
Now, I know that summer is winding down for some of you, but here summer is still in full force. Nothing screams the dog days of summer like a beautiful pink blush, and today I thought I'd bring you one of my all-time favorites from MAC Cosmetics. If you're not yet ready to let go of this gorgeous, warm weather or your bright hued makeup, then I've got a lovely rouge you won't want to miss!

MAC Cosmetics' Powder Blush in Dollymix is this fantastic girly pink, perfect for long summer days and sultry summer nights. It's a sheertone blush that borderlines on hot pink, but needs to be built to it's full potential, so you can easily wear it as a light wash on days you want your makeup a little more natural. It also has just a hint of shimmer to illuminate your cheeks and give you a healthy, youthful glow.

I love to take a fluffy blush brush and apply it directly to the apples of my cheeks to give my face a nice pop of color. I pair it with a neutral eye and a bright lip for a fab, fresh look that is always on trend. It's one of my favorite go-to looks when I'm in a hurry, but want to make a statement. Dollymix applies well and, with the proper primer, lasts most of the day. And don't freak out if you put on a little too much. Just take a clean blush brush and swipe it over your cheeks a few times to tone the intensity down.

Dollymix has quickly become one of my favorite blushes. It is seriously beautiful and I can imagine that it would work well on all skin tones. If you are looking for a new pink blush to see you through the end of the summer, I definitely recommend this one. Head over to your local MAC counter and give it a swatch. You might find that Dollymix becomes your new favorite, too!

  13. Now this is a gorgeous blusher! I love a hot pink, especially on my super pale skin. I might have to pop this on my birthday wishlist, along with Cranberry eyeshadow, I'm having a MAC moment! The great thing is Chris works in merchandising and gets a discount on all sorts of products including beauty!! So my birthday wishlist is ten pages long, haha. Hope you had a wonderful time at your sister in law's wedding :) xxx
