Hi ladies! I was so excited to start this week because…short work week! I’m only in the office until Wednesday and then, it’s wilderness time! 🙂 I literally cannot wait to get out of cell phone range and be totally unplugged! But, for now I am still here. I had two reader requests recently that I wanted to go ahead and post about it. Both are blush related.I hope this helps you ladies out, and thanks for being such sweethearts 😉

Milani Luminoso vs MAC Nuance

The first request was to show how Milani Luminoso and MAC Nuance blushes compare. As you can see, Luminoso has more pink to it, and Nuance is more of a true peach. Nuance was a limited edition shade (or it was discontinued) and isn’t available anymore (try CCO or AllCosmeticsWholesale as they both usually have it). They are similar, but not dupes.

The next request was to swatch all of my MAC blushes. I had to wait for it to get sunny out, and luckily today gave me a bit of sun later in the day and I was able to swatch everything before dusk hit!

That’s it for now! I still have my eye on a few blushes from MAC, namely Melba, Cantaloupe, and Burnt Pepper. Are there any other MAC permanent blushes you feel are must haves? Lemme know! I am truly a blush girl and am always looking to try new favorites.

I know I still need to do a NARS blush post as well, and believe me that’s coming soon. I just need to wrap up some other things first. I am always happy to take requests, whether it’s comparing things with swatches or otherwise.

    Bite of an Apple is one of my all time favorites! I usually don’t go for bright blush, but I find it goes on quite sheer. 😀

    I wish I’d got Pink Cult when it was out, my friend bought it and I thought it looked like such a wearable neutral nudey pink but didn’t buy it. >__> *stalks ebay*

  8. […] ten. The reason is that although I think MAC does make a nice blush (as evidenced by my collection here) and has the most extensive range of colors, their formula doesn’t usually ‘wow’ […]
