Okay so here’s a little story about these blushes (and why I even have two of them to begin with)
It all started when I went online and ordered the Ombre Blush in Ocean City and the Mangrove lipstick out of the Proenza Schouler x MAC collection. Well, they ended up sending me the wrong one (they sent me Sunset Beach instead) and I was devastated.
After getting on the phone with their customer service rep and being told it happened to a lot of us, I felt only slightly better. Either way they restocked on the Ombre Blush in Ocean City and they let me keep Sunset Beach for free ( talk about amazing customer service, Brava MAC)!
Okay. Lets talk packaging because it is obviously one of the most beautiful I’ve seen from MAC. It’s modern, sleek and it sits kind of heavy in the hands (which to me always means sturdiness). Again 10 out of 10 for packaging…super chic and sleek and glossy! Makes you want to apply blush everywhere in public.
As for the blushes themselves I really like them. Ocean City stays on for a few hours longer than Sunset Beach but they are both gorgeous colors. I really love that the Ombre gives you options, sometimes I mix both colors, and other times I apply either one alone (depending on the look). For around $30 these blushes were definitely a luxury purchase and not necessarily a necessity nor rarities.
