Get Your Chic On with MAC Très Cheek


Blush is one of my biggest beauty vices. Impossible to use all at the rate I seem to accumulate, but I like options and COLOR. A look is not complete without a touch of blush. Even if I’m going for the “no-makeup” look, some type of blush/bronzer needs to be happening. MAC is clearly well aware of our community of blush lovers with the launch of the Très Cheek collection this month.

“Everyone loves when you blush. Fashioning your choices: A new sextet of MAC blush powders. Go hip in bright red-orange, or add a glorious touch of peach, pink or lavender – each shade staying as bright and un-beige on the skin as it is in the palette. With a formula that’s seamlessly sheer and unabashedly buildable, what do you get? A look that says Très Cheek.”

There are six shades to tug at your blush-loving heart strings:

  • Pink Tea: Neutral beige pink (Satin)
  • Lovecloud: Bright mid-tone pink (Satin)
  • Peony Petal: Bright blue pink (Satin)
  • Modern Mandarin: Red-orange (Satin)
  • Immortal Flower: Bright peach (Satin)
  • Full of Joy: Lavender (Frost)

Must-haves for me would be Modern Mandarin — reminds me of NARS Taj Majal a bit! — and Lovecloud. The latter is a subtly bright pink with a hint of peach (at least to my eye!)

The “Tres Cheek” blushes are $20 and available officially April 5 (but are online now). Anything catching your eye (or cheek)?
