I don’t think I am the only one that second guesses myself before a cosmetics purchase. I get weary of my weakness/love for all things makeup. When new collections come out I cannot help but drool over them, but I am to the point now that I have an ESTABLISHED collection and my color preferences are very well set so I question when I actually need to make a new purchase.
Unfortunately it can also be a bad thing… I sit back and second guess myself too much sometimes and let items that I really truly want slip away, which is what happened with the ever elusive MAC Azalea Blossom. It was released in December 2011 in a Limited Edition collection, so I was sure I would never see it again.
I literally wanted it before it ever came out but hesitation ruined it all… so luckily a found a lady that was getting rid of hers and I got a great deal for it. I am completely in love. I think I was hesitant because of the fact that it is sooo cool toned and I typically wear warm toned blush. Never the mind… it looks great on my skin.
I know this isn’t the first time any of you MAC Addicts have seen this blush but I had to do my own post anyway! I love this and I think it is absolutely stunning… It is a cool satin/shimmer bubble-gum pink that fades into a lilac purple.
I did a finger swatch but it is hard to show you. You can see that it replicates the gradient.
And here are the swatches… When you swipe it you will get a blurred ombre affect but if you swirl it all together you get a beautifully interesting shade of pink.
Same swatches with a flash!
Hope you guys enjoyed my little walk down happiness lane… You know what they say… If you love something set it free, if it returns it is yours forever! I love you, MAC Azalea Blossom!
