Blush crazy - MAC & Estee Lauder

I've been going through a bit of a blush obsession lately but up until recently I did not own a cream blush mainly because I didn't know how well they would last on my cheeks, and I didn't want to risk it.

That is until I came across MAC Something Special... and I thought that ... well, it is something special and needs to come home with me! The other purchase, Estee Lauder Peach Nuance, is from a blog sale held by the lovely Delyteful Speaks (who incidentally has the same taste as me in EVERYTHING beauty related).

L/R: Estee Lauder Peach Nuance, MAC Something Special


MAC Something Special
This is a cremeblend formula by MAC which is now part of their permanent line. It's a lovely peachy pink that goes on very smoothly and surprisingly lasts an 8hr day without sliding down to my chin or going patchy. It looks really natural on, and gives a beautiful glow to the face.



Estee Lauder Peach Nuance
I'd read about this blush on so many blogs that I lost count, but never really thought about buying it. I will be honest here, I'm not one to buy from Estee Lauder much because I always get distracted by hipper, cooler brands like Illamasqua and MAC, so I never even set out to purchase this blush. But when I saw it at the blog sale I thought this is my perfect opportunity to try it. The colour graduates from light to dark, from a pale peachy tone to a darker coral tone. The lighter side is too light for me, so I only ever wear it swirled together.


These two blushes are also great for layering to get a totally different colour tone, and make it last for ages. The Peach Nuance over Something Special turns into a lovely warm peach colour that is perfect for summer cheeks.


Have you got any of these blushes? Do you layer your creams and powders?

  3. I want to try cream blushes, too, but I am nervous how they might hold up with my oily prone skin. And I love to layer blush!

  7. I have peach nuance and hate it. Even though I'm super pale it never shows up as well as I want it to on my skin. On a happier not yes I do layer y blush products, it's really been helping keep my blush in place in this heat :-) x

  12. I've never layered my creams and powders because I still don't have as good an idea of what they will look like blended. The way that these two look together makes me want to try it! Such pretty colors!
