For every contour control freak, for every persistent perfectionist comes this wondrous way to play with blush that gives you the most magnificent flexibility you’ve ever had…Starts creamy, stays creamy and proves once and for all that powder is NOT your only prerogative. You can get back to a new build for that retro “rouge” look Old Hollywood Glamour made modern or stop at subtle and natural; it’s all in your hands. In three aspects, two shades of each: One matched to skin, one for a brighter glow and one darker for cream contouring, it’s perfect for all skin colours, minus the silicone, particularly adept at preventing ashiness on darker complexions. Make powdery a thing of the past.
Although Blushcremes have been discontinued, MAC has created a new set of Cremeblend blushes that will surely fill the Blushcreme void you’ve been feeling. Brit Wit, Ladyblush, and Posey are all previous color names, and I suspect the colors will be the same in the Cremeblend line. So Sweet, So Easy was previously released with the Lillyland collection in Jan. 2010. Something Special and Tea Petal are new colors.
