MAC Blusher Collection – Swatches!

I’m here today to show you my entire MAC Blusher collection. I absolutely adore all MAC products and blushers are a particular weakness of mine. I thought I’d film a video telling you a bit about them and you can also find swatches in this post too!

L-R Happy Together, Moonriver, Hipness, Pinch O’ Peach, Strada, Melba, Peaches, Ladyblush

MAC Blusher Collection!

Strada– My favourite blusher which has now been discontinued. In short, this makes my cheekbones look incredible! I need to find a blusher dupe of this for when it runs out – if you have any recommendations then do let me know!

Melba – Melba is the most stunning warm peach shade which really warms up my complexion. I think this is a really popular shade and really recommend it!

Peaches – Peaches is obviously a bright peach blush, which actually looks really similar in the pan to Melba.

Pinch O Peach – I have no idea why it is called Pinch O’ Peach because this pink blusher contains NO peach at all! A little bit silly, but it’s still a nice shade. I tend to steer clear of pink blushers as I think warmer tones suit me more.

Hipness – This was part of ‘To the Beach’ collection and I’ll admit I bought it mostly because of the seahorse on the front. In terms of colour, it’s a gorgeous pink with hints of peach and a gorgeous shimmer running through it too.

Moonriver – I absolutely love and adore this product. It was released in the Mineralized Collection and it contains two different sides – one shimmery pink blush and one highlighters with blue and silver veins running through it. This is gorgeous in the summer on dewy skin, but can be a little glittery.

Happy Together – Another one from the Mineralized Collection. I don’t use this often as it is a little brown and orange on me, but used well it’s a gorgeous contour/bronzer.

I know in the video I mentioned my MAC Skinfinish powders and highlighters but I’m going to save them for a separate post! 

Do let me know if you enjoyed this and if you would like any more brand collection posts/videos!

What are your favourite MAC blushers? Can you recommend me some more?

All purchased with my own money!

    Brilliant blog post. Seriously, i wish more bloggers would do comparisons like you've done.
    I only own Pinch O Peach from your collection, it's one of my most used blushes, but looking at your swatches i can see the other shades that take my fancy. Before now, i wouldn't have taken much notice of the other shades.

    Very handy! Hipness reminds me a lot of NARS deep throat. I think I'm going to try Melba. Great colour for summer! x

    Wow beautiful color collection. Really nice. I think STRADA is suitable for my skin.

    I only own MAC Something Special and I like it. It's a lovely color, looks like Hipnes…I will review it soon on my blog.

    I love your blog, check out mine at !

    Now i find your blog, very nice, and also a good article, thank you!

    I highly recommend 'fleur power' by mac for pale skin it looks amazing- very pigmented though but with a light hand dusted softly on the cheeks is lovely!

    I highly recommend 'fleur power' by mac for pale skin. It looks so lovely dusted softly across the cheeks- it is very pigmented though so I would warn you to use it with a light hand 🙂 x

    I recommend Blushbaby or Well Dressed, they work perfectly with my extremely fair skin. I also love Pinkswoon but since you're more of a peachy lover you might not enjoy that shade as much. Wonderful post thank you for all the swatches!

    I recommend Blushbaby or Well Dressed, they both work beautifully with my extremely fair skin. I also love pink swoon but since you lean more towards peachy shades, it might not work for you, thank you for all of the lovely swatches!

    Have you ever found a Strada dupe? I haven't. I don't understand why they got rid of this awesome shade that no one else seem to have.

  33. April 10, 2014 / 3:27 pm

    Have you ever been able to find a Strada dupe? I haven't had any luck! Sad face. I don't understand why MAC nix this shade when it was so well liked and no one seems to make anything close to it.

  34. May 21, 2015 / 12:36 am

    I used to own Melba and loved it! Maybe I will try Peaches next.
