Surf, Baby!

My ikkle tiny, very well behaved buy from the Mac surf, baby! collection... the cheek powder in 'my paradise'. Mac say its "a peach shade with gold hibiscus overspray" cute is the design? and I'm glad it has a limited edition packaging unlike the quite cute collection, I am a sucker for the way things look.

I'll be honest the colour is pretty intimidating even for me and needs to be applied lightly. The gold shimmer is optional because you can work round it, which I love, and the shimmer is very fine so not overly glittery, another thumbs up. The gold seems quite deep aswell so wont run out after like 3 applications like they sometimes can do.

Here are the swatches of the gold on its own (left), peach on its own (middle) and mix (right).

And here it is on, it look quite light in this picture but trust me its just the camera, there was some serious blusher going on here!

A really summery and trendy colour, its definitely going to get used alot. I have seen some people compare it to Nars Orgasm so maybe not for you if you already have that.

The whole collection it pretty gorgeous actually, I really want to check out the bronzer creme sticks too and the eye pencils next time I'm in a store.
