In today's post I swatched MAC My Highland Honey and Her Blooming Cheek blushes, both from the Tartan Tale collection. As mentioned before, I'm a huge orange and peach blush fiend, so My Highland Honey is definitely on my wishlist, I made a mistake telling the MUA to try Her Blooming Cheek on me, oh well, I'm glad she did. Now you will see why you NEED Her Blooming Cheek blush! :DSwatched on the arm:
My cheeks with foundation only (Laneige Snow Crystal Dual Foundation liquid #31):
Pretty satisfied with the glow it gives me. This is a true orange blush, and is different if compared with MAC Utterly Game (from Fabulous Felines), the latter is more coral. And they DO look different in the pan. My Highland Honey brings a sun-kissed glow to my apples, what more could a blush fiend ask for? :D
Another shot with foundation only:
Now the pink really is something isn't it? It's INTENSELY PIGMENTED. Really a light dap of the brush on the pan is enough to give you a lovely glow. I was applying more than I needed for this photo :) I was in AWE in the store when the MUA swept this over my cheeks - my friend was with me and she was surprised at how it showed up too! I knew then I had to get this. I don't own anything that bright or fuschia pink in my stash, and certainly there isn't a dupe in my stash for comparison.
This is my second foray into MAC blushes and I'm pleasantly surprised by Her Blooming Cheek! I can foresee it making its way to my HG list.
Those of you who have NARS Angelika or Desire (or any bright pink/fuschia pink blushes for that matter), OR if you think you know a dupe for this, please let me know ^_^!
On another note, I will announce giveaway details tomorrow (yes finally!)!
