MAC in Lillyland Cremeblend Blush – Pictures & Swatches

Here are my initial thoughts about the new Cremeblend Blush from the MAC in Lillyland collection, due for release in January 2010.

I’ve only worn So Sweet, So Easy and I like it so far. The texture is great and it was easy to blend. I personally don’t find cream blushes as flattering as powder blushes on my skin, and this was no exception. I just find that creams can emphasise any bumps I have on my skin. But his issue I have is not unique to these blushes, and I will continue to wear them.MAC in Lillyland Cremeblend Blush

Texture wise, it’s definitely not as sticky and tacky as the blushcremes. It’s a tricky one to describe, the surface isn’t super soft but the blush itself is really easy to work with. I applied with my MAC 188 brush and blended out with my stila 21 brush. Sometimes the application and blending of cream blushes can irritate my skin and cause redness, but I’m happy to report that there was none of that today!

Honestly, I’m not sure if I’m going to keep this one, it’s bright fuchsia! Me and pinks don’t always get along so I need to have a think. I haven’t taken any swatches of this one just in case I decide I don’t want it.MAC in Lillyland Cremeblend Blush Swatches

MAC Cremeblend Blushes: Optimistic Orange, Joie-de-Vivre, So Sweet So Easy, Florida

Joie-De-Vivre  – I think this is my favourite of these cremeblend blushes. I love coral, there’s not much more to say. I can see myself wearing this heaps in summer.

Optimistic Orange – This is described my MAC as ‘bright coral’. As the name suggests, it’s definitely more orange than coral. I can’t wait to use this one.

Swatch  So Sweet, So Easy : I wore this today. As far as pinks go, I really like this one. It’s almost a milky pink and the colour is quite sheer compared It the others but don’t let that deter you! It’s such a pretty shade of pink.
