Mac Pro Blush Palette (£14) and Pro Palette Refill Pans (£14.50)
available online

I think Well Dressed blusher was one of my first ever purchases from a MAC store as an impressionable, newly-fledged blogger watching far too many beauty haul videos! Fast forward three years and I have now cultivated my capsule collection of blushers ranging from peachy-corals, delicate pinks and deep mauves. I've got to be honest, I don't whip this palette everyday and some blushers do actually lay pretty untouched, but it does house all my favourite shades and is ideal for slinging in your bag when packing for a few days away. As far as pretty baby-pink blushers go, Well Dressed is basically the ultimate colour and you can understand why it is one of MAC's more popular blushers with its soft, wearable hue and satin finish. On the other end of the spectrum, Style blush is one of my favourite coral-toned cheek products and I fall in love with its golden-frosty finish every time I use it. Think Benefit's Coralista but a little less pink and a little more peachy. Beautiful! If you prefer a more subtle flush of colour from your blusher then the Sheertone finishes from MAC are perfect for a gentle, yet buildable colour. Coygirl and Pink Swoon are both Sheertone blushers and are ideal for barely-there makeup days when you just want to add a bit of warmth to your cheeks and Peachykeen blusher was a must-have from the start, purely based on its name!

I'd love to know which MAC blushers feature in your makeup collection.

They have to be the prettiest swatches ever!! haha.

I have Well Dressed, I've not wore it for a long time but I've completely used one pot up and can barely get any on my brush because it's almost gone! I'm afraid if I use it again I'll fall back in love with it and have to spend more money!! lol! :P

This is a great post... and I've just realised I need Coygirl in my life... :')

I also have Dame but it doesn't blend out on me very well so I've barely touched mine aha.

Great post, lovely!!

I love the look of Pink Swoon! The colours you've put in there are gorgeous, although I can't help but wonder whether £14 for an empty palette is justifiable or not!
