MAC Pink Sprinkles Blush ($24) is one of two limited edition powder blush shades launching with the MAC The Simpsons Makeup Collection. Pink Sprinkles might have you think of Homer’s favorite tasty donut treat but this collection is actually something that celebrates Marge as you can see from the packaging! The blush comes housed in a black lacquer case with a yellow face plate featuring Marge’s fluttery lashes and legendary hair peeking back at you!

I admit that the other blush launched with this collection, Sideshow You, is my favorite of the two blushes in terms of color and formulation. The MAC Pink Sprinkles Blush is a lighter blue based baby pink with a matte finish although MAC calls it satin! I think the finish is very matte with a denser, slightly drier texture. It is fairly cooled toned with a sheerer color pay off but it builds easily however, the intensity of the pink you see in the pan is never achieved fully on the face in my opinion. It wears for a good eight to nine hours without fading or losing intensity. I had a little issue blending out because my skin is drier and mattes seem to like to go clown-y on me when my cheeks are drier so do prep well if you have a similar skin type!

MAC went a little larger with these blushes as they weight in at 0.33 oz in size versus the standard blush size of 0.21 oz. The outer packaging is a celebration of all things Simpsons with an appearance of many of your favorite characters including Maggie, Lisa, Bart, Homer, and many others. The inside packaging is more about Marge though. I dunno if this particularly shade reminds me of Marge but it does evoke Homer’s favorite treat that’s for sure (a pink frosted sprinkle donut!).
It is available today at maccosmetics.com and the entire MAC The Simpsons Collection will be available September 4th on counter and in stores.
Whether you are or aren’t a fan of the Simpsons you can’t deny this collection is quite cute and a must have for both fans and non fans alike!
