MAC Crisp Whites Powder Blush Review & Swatches

MAC Crisp Whites Blush

MAC Crisp Whites Blush ($24.50) is one of two new, limited edition MAC Blush shades that launched with the MAC Wash & Dry Summer 2015 Makeup Collection.

Earlier this month I was talking about how the lipstick index seemed to be taking a nose dive and how makeup collections and beauty releases seem a little slower and I feel like the MAC Summer 2015 Collection is testimony to that. This is such a tiny release for Summer! Typically MAC releases Summer Collections in two parts because they are rather large. Wash & Dry is a really tiny collection. No worries, I’m sure we have plenty to look forward to from MAC this Summer including their Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive Collection but still I sure do find it unusual for them to release merely two blushes for Summer.

None the less here’s some thoughts on the MAC Crisp Whites Powder Blush!

10 Budget Cream Blush Suggestions for Summer

Tis the season for cream blushes and I created a list of 10 Budget Cream Blush Suggestions for Summer that will give your cheeks the perfect flush of lightweight color without breaking your beauty budget!

I dunno what it is but when Summer rolls around I start going through my stash and setting aside all my cream blushes so I can wear them more often. Maybe it’s because they tend to be travel friendly and easy to apply without a ton of tools (just dab them on with your fingers and blend out!). Or maybe it’s because they are so lightweight and provide such natural color!

Whatever it is I tend to love wearing cream blush in the Summer.

How about you?
