MAC Styleseeker Powder Blushes: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

The blushes from MAC’s Styleseeker collection are all vastly different from one another… They’re very colorful and well pigmented. Although all three may not be for everyone, you will surely find that one of these is something that you’ll like! They fit in well with the rest of the collection, though, and these blushes are perfect if you want to try something new and trendy.

 

All three blushes from the Styleseeker collection are available now on www.maccosmetics.com or at your local MAC store or counter. Like other powder blushes, these contain 6g / 0.21oz of product and sell for $20.

Hidden Treasure (Velvet):   Hidden Treasure is a “rich burnt red”… To me, it’s a medium-dark, slightly warm toned red with rusty undertones. The Velvet texture is something that you may not be familiar with, but it gives the blush a soft, subtle sheen without being shimmery or frosty. As you can see, when swatched heavily, it’s extremely bold! I think this looks best on medium to deep skintones, although anyone lighter can use it if it’s applied carefully, slowly building up the color with something like a MAC 188 brush. The color payoff and texture are both fantastic. Hidden Treasure also wears well… I got 8+ hours of wear without it fading or moving around at all!

Supercontinental (Satin):   This blush is a “bright cute coral”. It’s a medium, warm, pinky-coral with a soft, natural sheen to it.  This blush is definitely the most “normal” of the three and is wearable by nearly everyone, except perhaps those of you with deeper skin tones (it may look chalky on deeper skin). The color payoff is absolutely wonderful… Supercontinental is really easy to apply and build color with. so it can be as muted or bright as you like. I suggest a MAC 188 brush for building color, or something like a 116 brush to apply it more heavily. This blush gave me a full 8 hour day of wear without much, if any, fading or moving around.

Worldly Wealth (Frost):   Worldly Wealth is a “shimmering peachy bronze”. To me, this is more like a bronzer than a true blush… It’s a soft, warm, midtone peachy bronze with a golden glow. This can be worn by everyone somehow, it’s just a matter of how you apply it. Since I’m quite fair, I use a small stippling brush, like a MAC 188, and build the color up gradually. I actually really like this as a bronzer, but as a blush, it looks a wee bit funky on my NC20 skin. However, on deeper skin I think that Worldly Wealth would look very pretty and natural as a blush. The color payoff is decent and it goes on very smoothly, making it easily blendable. I got around 8 hours of wear with this blush, although the shimmer in it tends to settle in and emphasize my pores after about 4 hours.
