Review: MAC Dollymix Sheertone Shimmer Blush

Overall rating: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Packaging quality: 4/5
Would I buy this again? Yes.

WHAT IS IT? A powder blush by MAC.
HOW DO YOU USE IT? Using a blush brush or a skunk brush (depending on the look you’re going for), lightly tap the brush into the pot and then swipe this over your cheeks.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? You get 6g/0.21 US OZ of powder in a round compact. It is housed in your typical MAC blush compact – black, round with a clear lid.
TEXTURE AND/OR SMELL: The textures of MAC’s blushes especially their sheertone shimmer blushes are really silky and smooth. They’re also very finely milled and in the case of the sheertone shimmer blushes, it is very easy to build up the colour. MAC blushes do not have a smell.
MY OPINION: Dollymix is a cool toned candy pink blush with silver shimmer which looks really scary in the pan and makes you wonder “Why would I want to apply that on my face?” But Dollymix is one of those colours which would surprise you and you wouldn’t know it til you’ve tried it. Once applied, it is the most perfect deep to medium berry pink on my skin. I like to use my Flirt! blush brush with this blush – I very lightly tap the blush with the brush and then swirl it on my cheeks for the perfect pop of pink. Staying power and pigmentation is fantastic as always with MAC blushes.

Don’t be afraid. I am beautiful when applied.

Swatch done in natural light.
