Hello there pretties here is my MAC Stunner Blush & MAC 226 Brush Review!
I’m so excited to show you what I got from Mac Me Over Collection that was launched
last Saturday, ~ here in Philippines.
I was able to drop by yesterday and get my reservation from Ms. Kang, my favourite Mac Consultant in Rustan’s Makati. So, even without my Yaya (Nanny) I managed to drive and pack up with my baby just to get what I want from this collection.
Anyway, So I finally got the Mac Stunner Blush and the MAC 226 brush– the most anticipated item from this collection! I’m so in love with this BRUSH!
The Mac 226 is a small, tapered, and has a dome-shaped brush designed for crease-work.
It’s like a thinner, pointier version of the MAC 224-which is larger, fluffier, covers a wider area, and totally not ideal for crease work. I can only use the MAC 224 for blending out harsh lines.
I love the MAC 226’s shorter bristles; less bushy and much tapered, fits beautifully in any crease type and blends shadow perfectly! I like how it is so easy to use to create an outer-v, perfect smoky look in seconds without overdoing your eye-make-up! It applies the shadow softly and more evenly.
Simply a fabulous brush for me, I just wish I can get more.
Thanks to Ms. Kang for reserving me one!
Stunner is described as “light coral pink” with a satin finish.
It comes in standard Mac compact, lightweight portable plastic with a see-through lid.
It looks like an average pink blush with a subtle sheen to its finish.
On my NC20 skin tone, it is more of a peachy pink hue, light with a hint of coral when it is blended.
It has a light pigmentation- good for a mistake free application.
You can build or add more layers to make it more visible without getting too powdery.
The texture is quite nice, no chalky feel at all.
It does give me a nice rosy flush while it stays true to its color.
However, It really takes a little effort to make it more opaque.
Here are some other swatch for comparison..
Shue Uemura M Soft Coral is a matte, light natural softened coral pink. I believe they look so similar..
What you say? though, Stunner has a light pink sheen that makes it more beautiful. while, Benefit Coralista is a lot brighter, warmer and frostier compared to the Mac Stunner. Honestly, I wasn’t wowed at all when I saw the whole MAC Me Over Collection.. Others didn’t tickle my fancy either, apart from the MAC226 and the MAC Stunner.
Price at Local Malls:
MAC 226 – PHP 1,450 (approx $32)
MAC Stunner – PHP 1,300 (approx $29)
