FOTD/EOTD - *Cream blush + Mac's Texture* Rave

Mac's Jest paired with texture in the crease
I love Mac's Blacktrack Fluidline! It makes my eyes pop :)
Sebastian Trucco Blush Creme 'Desert Rose'

This is not exactly an EOTD guys but just wanted to rave about some products that I am loving right now!

The first one is Mac's Eyeshadow in Texture. As I mentioned in a previous post that it is the perfect crease color for all skintones. Thus I paired it up in the crease with Mac's Jest as the main lid color. The unique thing about texture is that it adapts itself to any eyeshadow color it is paired with. Thus in the above pink it just looks like a soft brown, whereas if used in a smokey eye it appears to be a deep orangey brown.

Despite being such a pigmented color it blends so well and creates that dimension without much effort. As you can see it looks quite natural in the crease. Definately get this one for your collection ladies!

The other thing that I have been wearing religiously these days is Sebastian Trucco's Blush Creme in Desert Rose. As you can see in the picture it looks a very bright fuschia in the pan but dont be scared of such colors ladies as you can play it up or down easily! Its a blush duo and comes with a lighter pink color which has illuminating properties and hence can be mixed with the brighter color or be used as a highligher.

It very much resembles the Nars Copacabana Multiple Stick. I am wearing a mix of both these colors in the pic above and to me it gives a lovely radiant effect/glow as compared to powder blushes. It even stays on the whole day and looks just as pretty! Best used with a Mac 116 or 187 brush. Try cream blushes gurlies if you havent yet!

Do you recommend any cream blushes which are musthaves?

I love this look on you! It's very pretty. I haven't actually heard of MAC texture for some reason but yep, it's on the website so I'm going to check it out when I'm in the store next!
I have a few MAC cream blushes but I don't find myself grabbing them much - I think because I find the texture a bit sticky which I don't like :( But the Sebastian Trucco blush creme looks lovely on you!

~Lisa said...

You look very pretty! I might try Texture soon! And sadly, I haven't tried any cream blushes yet. I'm so slow!! T.T

Crystal said...

i love texture too! you can pair it with anything! i used to be obsessed and only used creme blushes but i'm kinda over them now for some reason...i used to love MAC's ladyblush creme blush, it made my cheeks look flawless on top of my foundation but i lost the spark for it for some reason lol
