Swatches ~ Mac Proenza Schouler Ombre Blushes

 Mac Proenza Schouler Ombre Blushes

How in the world did I end up with so many blushes!  Well, I initially placed my order with Mac online for two Sunset Beach blushes and two lipsticks from the Proenza Schouler collection. At the time, they were completely sold out of the Ocean City blushes, so I placed an order with Nordstroms online for two Ocean City blushes as well.  

When my order arrived from Mac, to my surprise there were two Ocean City blushes instead of the two Sunset Beach blushes I initially ordered. When I called Mac customer service to let them know about the mix up, they told me that somehow all the blushes were in the wrong bins and everyone's order got mixed up.  Well, they refunded me for the two blushes and told me to keep them.

Still following me.... well in the meantime, my order from Nordstroms arrived with the two Ocean City blushes I ordered.   Now I have in my posession a total of four (4) Ocean City blushes and no Sunset Beach blushes!  Well, I skidazzled over to Macy's and picked up two Sunset Beach blushes once they launched in stores... and this only happens once in a lifetime.

I'm quite disappointed with the pigmentation of the Ocean City matte blush.  It's very chalky and doesn't glide on smoothly.  I really had to pack on the powder for these swatches to show. I did however like the outcome after I swirled them together, it became peach with a slight shimmer on my skin.

I am quite pleased with the Sunset Beach matte blush.  I especially like the darkest color and once I swirled them all together, the outcome was a raspberry color with a slight sheen.
