MAC Wonder Woman Mighty Aphrodite Blush Review

March 11, 2011

I have no willpower whatsoever when it comes to ‘sold out’ or ‘only a few left’ products. When the pictures of mac wonder woman became available online before they hit the counter, my initial reaction was ‘aw..they are ugly..I would never buy these’. Yes I am the type of person who judges the book by its cover…

As I walked by a MAC counter a week ago, the word ‘sold-out’ immediately caught my eye.  It was the Mighty Aphrodite blush from Mac Wonder Woman Collection. I quickly snatched the tester and rubbed it on to my cheeks impatiently… then my heart stopped.. for a few seconds. It was surreal, the blush looked 10 times more beautiful when applied than it does in the pan. I spent a week to finally locate a store that still has the blush and finally received it today.

Packaging wise..it cannot be any uglier..

Once you open it, it is a 2 tone blush which is rather appealing. The lighter side is more of a coral/peach color with shimmer, and the dark side is in between pink and red.

On my face: For picture purpose I applied more blush than I would normally use. I have to say I really really like how it looks on my face! I applied the hot pink shade onto the center of my apples, then I swept the lighter shade across my cheeks.
