And welcome back to the Real Wonderland! Time’s flying so fast and it’s already fall and almost Halloween. So today, I prepared a little post about my favorite fall blushes – Mac Fever & Swiss Chocolate.
Let’s jump right into it!
Mac powder blushes come in 4 different formulas:
- Sheertone Shimmer – a shimmering blush that gives the face quite some glow (no opaque coverage)
- Sheertone – a nicely shimmering finish with a little transparency
- Satin – a creamy finish with semi-opaque coverage
- Matte – a neutral finish, without any shine, easy to blend out the intense colors
My two blushes come with the formula matte, as this one just blends easily and the shades have a great color pay-off.
Mac Powder Blush „Fever“ (6g for 24.50€)
Mac describes this shade as a „red-burgundy tone“ which fits it perfectly! The shade is a really nice darker red that reminds me of typical fall leaves that begin to fall from the trees. This blush has an amazing color pay-off so be careful and don’t use too much product otherwise you end up looking totally red in your face. However it blends very easy and feels rather creamy not really dusty – there’s no fall-out when applying it.
There are so many possibilities for wearing this blush! With a more natural look, only some mascara, a nude lipstick and only a little (!) amount of blush or for a night out or a more dramatic looks with smokey eyes (maybe in brown with a little touch of gold) and a darker plum/wine red lisptick where you accentuate your cheek bones.
Mac Powder Blush „Swiss Chocolate“ (6g for 24.50€)
Mac calls this blush a „soft cocoa color“ which I agree to and add that his is more on the warmer side and a light to medium brown, just as milkchocolate. This blush is multi usable – I use it as a blush and also for contouring. Mostly I mix this shade together with Fever to have a darker red/brownish shade to accentuate my cheeks when wearing a mkore dramatic face makeup.
However it’s also really good for contouring, especially because it is so easy to blend and the pigmentation is as well amazing! The intensity can easily be increased by just adding a little more color and the shade really has opaque coverage so that it is just perfect as a contour color. Just a little secret by the way, when traveling or in need of a matte crease color, I use it as a transition shade in my crease and blend it with a crease brush to give my eyes more depth!
Here are some swatches for you to see these great fall colors!
