MAC used to be one of my favourite beauty brands, and I used to find myself splurging everytime they released a new collection. However in the last 18 months or so, I’ve just not found myself being wowed by their collections and their constant repromotes. When I saw the MAC Summer collection, I knew I’d have to get something as the packaging alone was amazing. I opted for the MAC Wash and Dry Crisp Whites Powder Blush £20, and even though the collection launched a month ago, you can still purchase items from the collection on the Selfridges and House of Fraser websites, which never happens with MAC collections as they usually sell out within days.
The packaging is stunning.. with a glossy ombré metallic turquoise, coral and yellow pattern which is ideal for a Summer collection, and it has to be one of my favourite packaging designs MAC have done for one of their summer collections.
Crisp Whites is described as being a pale tangerine with pearls, and is the most perfect peach blush for pale skin like mine as it gives a subtle flush of colour and a pretty sheen to the cheeks without any obnoxious shimmer or glitter.
The texture is really smooth, and I find it easy to blend and it always looks so pretty on the cheeks. Crisp Whites can be worn quite sheerly as a pale peach, but it can also be built up to almost an orange shade depending on how much you apply.
This has fast become my favourite Summer blush, and I am so glad I bought it as it’s just so pretty and compliments any makeup look. If you fancy picking something up from the MAC Wash and Dry collection, I’d recommend doing it very soon as I can’t imagine it’ll hang around for much longer…
