MAC Pro Blushes

Ah do insert a happy sigh right here my pretties!

Your Muse has just popped back from the MAC Pro shop and she got two fabulous blushes that she’s in lust with at the moment!

Around July or maybe June MAC Pro had introduced a few blushes and eyeshadows (Visit with Christine and you can see swatches of all the shadows and blushes that were released!) that were exclusive to Pro shops only. It’s been a while since I dragged myself into a MAC Pro store so I decided to hop in today as I needed a bit of cheering up!

My little eyes did indeed spy two gorgeous shades of blush that were introduced in the line I was just talking about above and those are Full Fuchsia and Salsarose.

I’m positive if I showed these two colors to a professional makeup artist they’d yell and scream at me for purchasing such loud, bright, vibrant colors for my complexion but bloody hell I’m so used to breaking every cosmetic law in the book that I firgure I might as well go on and not stop now!

Both colors are utterly illegal and it’s possible I could be arrested for purchasing these vibrant shades but like I said I’m just not caring! I love these!

Full Fuchsia is just what you’d expect from a fuchsia colored blush! Holy cow it might very well glow in the dark if I switch the lights off my dears! It’s quite full on! When I wear it I look like I’m stepped in from a really cold winter’s night and I just adore that look as it makes me appear younger than I am hehe…!

The shade is truly fabulous and I’m absolutely ecstatic to use it with some vibrant shade of fushica eyeshadow (Hey why stop at blush! I want the ENTIRE look!).

I’m not entirely sure how many people (or myself for that matter) can pull this color off but I’m positive you’ll (and I) will have tons of fun trying to find just the right look using it!

Now Salsarose is much more subdued than Full Fuchsia (not by much). Salsarose is a coral red color that again gives me the just out of the cold (or pinched) look! It’s just as vibrant and gorgeous as Full Fuchsia and I’m really looking forward to using it in a full makeup look!

Overall, I’m so saddened I hadn’t picked these up when they were originally released because truly they are gems! Several other colors I wanted were out of stock and are equally in your face vibrant and yum!

If you live near a Pro shop do stop in to peek at these! If not you can always dial any Pro shop in the US and they’ll promptly deliver these or anything else your little heart desires for $7 UPS shipping fee!

Your Muse(y) approves of full on blush colors and highly suggests having a peek at these to see if they are just right for you icon wink

Teen Corner: Pigment Pressing Tutorial

If you’re a great reader of beauty blogs like the Muse you must make several stops to Makeup Bag a day (it’s ok you can admit your addiction to this great site)!

A wonderful and beautiful lady runs the site by the name of Erika and she has three gorgeous daughters one of which writes a column each week entitled Teen Corner.

This week I did so have to share with you, if you hadn’t already seen it, Bree’s (Erika’s daughter) fantastic Pigment Pressing Tutorial!

I’ve seen plenty pigment pressing tutorials but I find Bree’s entertaining and fun to read and quite helpful so I really HAD to link her!

Go visit this adorable girl icon smile

I’m sure her mum is very, very proud of her fantastic, witty, and clever beauty posts!

Ahhh…the future of beauty blogging lays in the hands of the young (the Muse is feeling old today lol) icon wink
