I  love blush…a lot, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new MAC Glow Play Blush collection. It has a lovely bouncy texture and comes in a beautiful range of shades. Check out my photos and swatches.

As a glowy skin fan, these new blusher massively appeal to me. Also, the packaging is great. It is very MAC, but in a kind of space age way!

I think you can get a great idea of how gorgeous they are on the complexion when you see how they look on the fingertips.

The finish of MAC Glow Play Blush has a soft luminosity that makes skin look dewy, juicy and healthy. Make sure you are following me on Instagram to see how they look on the skin. I have been using my fingertips for a really naturally flushed finish. The texture melts into the skin so effortlessly, and doesn’t disturb any makeup that’s underneath.

You can also apply with a brush for a more intense effect. They are super versatile because you can go for a really sheer wash, or build up for something a lot more noticable. The texture works really well on the eyelids too, so you can achieve a quick, harmonious monochrome look.  Love them!
