Spare Your Blushes

Well we all went a wee bit nuts over the new Mac collection didn't we? Even us brits where Archie comics aren't really a thing. Suckers. Now I know everyone always goes for the lipsticks, but I love the blushers in limited edition collections. I have blushes from the Heatherette collection that I bought in NYC, and an absolutely gorgeous blush from the Liberty London collection (that I bought in Frasers in Glasgow, not the same as NYC but hey ho). As much as I love these blushers, it's the packaging that really stands out for me, and I love having these as compacts in my make up bag - they're just too damn cute. Also there is no expiration date for powders if you look after them, so you can keep them for as long as you wish. Veronica's Blush from the Archie's Girls collection is no exception, but what I think adds to the appeal of this blush is the pink/red hearts which are, bedded into the pink blush - I mean how do they even do that?!! No wait don't tell me - I want to picture Mac Fairies in my head, running about in a magical make up land, sprinkling fairy dust all over the place and creating beautiful products. I am sure the Mac product developers would be overjoyed to hear that. 

Sorry about this photo, it was the best of a bad, bad bunch. (what is my hair doing?!)

So as we have taken care of the packaging, now to the actual blush. It is pretty standard, unfortunately doesn't  paint love hearts on your face - if you really like the look of that you have to do it yourself ;). It is a really pretty pinky colour when it's on, it almost has a kind of bluey tint to it, and a beautiful shimmer. I think this will be really lovely for spring, it is quite subtle, natural and fresh. Can we have some spring like weather now please?

What did you think of the Archie's Girls collection? What do you think of the Mac limited editions in general, do you get frustrated if you fall in love with a product and then can't buy it again? Do you love the packaging as much as I do?
