For part I of my MAC collection, which features all the MAC lipsticks I own (which isn't all that many really compared to others I've seen) please read my previous post (click here). As mentioned in my MAC lipstick collection post, I was asked to do a general makeup collection post a while ago and never knew how to go about doing it, until the idea of starting off with my MAC collection was born.
From the title of the post, I guess you'd know what this collection consists of - blushes.
It wasn't until I put all my MAC blushes together before I realised exactly how many of them I have... and don't use. After some contemplation, I'm ready to let go of the majority of these blushes. It's just such a waste of them to sit in my drawers without being used for extended periods of time! They need good homes!
Despite being a "sheertone" blush, Peachykeen has fantastic colour payoff. It is a peachy pink colour with a slight shimmer. I don't expect this one to sell due to its condition. I had an annoying oil buildup on the top layer of the blush, which prevented my brush from picking up the colour, so I had to scrap the buildup off with a clean knife.
Pinch O' Peach is another sheertone blush. It is a discontinued one, and I think MAC has changed it's formula over the course of manufacturing this blush, as I have another one of these (just in pan form, read further down below) and this one is cooler than the other. It is a cool matte pink colour.
Desert Rose^ is described as a "soft reddish-burgundy" by MAC. It is a warm rosy matte shade with great colour payoff.
Pinch Me is brand new, which is why I didn't swatch it. It is a rosy coral shade.

All four blushes above are mineralized blushes. I told you they're my favourite!
Warm Soul is my favourite MAC blush. As such, I probably won't be letting go of this one. It is such an interesting blush. It looks quite bronzey in the pan, and even on my arm (see below), but for some strange reason, it leans a little more pink on my cheeks. Love it!
Utterly Game is a peachy shade with a satin finish.
Early Morning is a coral blush with a very slight shimmer/sheen.
Giggly is a duo tone blush with a love heart imprint. It is described by a "light pink with pearly plum heart". This blush hasn't been used much, as it's just too cute. Make anything with a love heart on it, and you can pretty much guarantee I'll buy it.

Joyous is a bright peachy pink shade with a slight sheen.
Rosy Outlook is a semi-matte blush that is described as a "light yellow pink".
As mentioned above, the "Pinch O Peach"^ pan is slightly warmer than the other one that I have.
Fleur Power is a bright coral pink shade that is apparently a satin finish. It looks more of a matte finish in my opinion.
Accentuate and Sculpt aren't blushes and they aren't for sale. But I thought I'd include them here since I've stuck them in my palette (which I realise is missing the insert). Accentuate is a pale beige shaping powder, and Sculpt is a sculpting powder that is described as a soft taupe matte.

Whilst I absolutely love my MAC blushes collection, I think it's time to let these babies go. I sincerely hope to find new homes for them, where they will be loved and used more frequently.
After much deliberation, I've decided to have a standard price and a discount for multiple purchases despite some blushes being worth more than others (e.g. mineralize blushes retails for more than powder blushes).
1 blush = AUD $20 + postage
2 blushes = AUD $36 + postage
3 blushes = AUD $50 + postage
If you would like more than 3, we can discuss prices.
Please send me an email (email@example.com) advising which blushes you'd like and your postal address. An extra fee will be added should you wish to pay via paypal to cover fees incurred unless the payment is gifted, and you're absorbing the paypal fees.
