I bought this well over a month ago now and am only just posting because in all honesty this was just too pretty to use. I’m not sure if it’s a blogger thing or if everyone feels this way about some items but when something is engraved I never want to use it. The picture above was actually taken AFTER I’d had my brush in the pan for those wondering so it’s not like one use will ruin it or anything but.. well.. it’s a strange thing to want to keep makeup for best, isn’t it?
I have a few MAC blushes and they’re nice, not my most reached for but they’re good, I used them. My favourites are the matte finishes such as Peaches and Desert Rose so when I saw this matter duo I knew I had to have it.. plus the packaging.. oh I’ve drooled enough. I’ve never tried a bronzer from the brand so I was interested to see what it would be like.. especially since I’m so pale and this is really quite deep but I absolutely love it. The colours complement each other perfectly, I use the bronzer as more of a contour and the pink for a pop of colour on the apples of my cheeks and even in the dead of winter when my skin is practically blue I think it gives a nice rosy glow. It’s top of my makeup list of what I’m planning to take to New York in January and given that it’s a two in one it’s a space saver too! The wear time is great.. I am the least elitist when it comes to blush and am a huge advocate of drugstore brands but honestly nothing from Superdrug has ever lasted 7 hours on me and this did. I’m not saying that that’s a deal breaker and I’ll never wear my MUA again but if you’re looking for something long wearing for a special occasion I would definitely check out MAC. I feel ridiculous saying that because it’s such a well loved brand but although I have a few items I’m still relatively new to it so when I find something great I want to tell everyone as if they wont already know. I will be reviewing the RiRi Woo in my 12 days of lipstick which will kick off on 1st December so look out for that – *spoiler alert* that too is also awesome.
This is well and truly sold out everywhere now however I don’t feel too bad talking about it after the fact since this didn’t launch for the first time with this collection, it’s a re-promote so chances are you will see it again and if you do, GET IT!!
