MAC Glamour Daze Powder Blush: Photos, Swatches and Reviews

There are three blushes with the Glamour Daze collection… All of which I fell in love with! At first glance, they don’t necessarily look like anything special, but after playing around with them both on myself and on customers for the past week, I’m pretty impressed! All of these blushes go along well with the rest of the collection and would be flattering on a variety of skintones.

MAC blushes are all nicely pigmented and apply evenly and easily. The three blushes with the Glamour Daze collection are especially nice, being brighter on the skin than they are in the packaging. They also all share a Satin finish, which to me, is the most natural and flattering of them all. I typically get 8 or more hours of wear with MAC blush before it starts to fade or move around. If you have pale to light skin or want to apply these blushes lightly and build on the color, the best brush to use would be a MAC 187 or 188 brush (with the 188 being smaller and giving you more control). To apply this more heavily, you can something more dense like a MAC 116, 129, or 168 brush.

All three blushes in the Glamour Daze collection are new colors and are limited edition. They have the special glossy black packaging, which ups the price to $22, rather than the usual $20. Each blush contains 6g / 0.21oz of product, which should last you quite a while!

Sorry this blush is not in pristine, new condition… I had to use it for work before I got a chance to photograph it!

Easy Manner:   Easy Manner is a “light dirty peach” with a Satin finish… I suppose I can see the “dirty” part when it’s in the pan, but on the skin, it’s a warm, light coral-ish peachy pink. It’s definitely more bold on the skin than the product itself is, so that gives it an A+ for color payoff and pigmentation! The Satin finish gives it a natural sheen and smooth texture which applies evenly for a flawless finish. Since this is the lightest of the three blushes, to me, this is best suited for pale to medium skin.

Again, I apologize for this blush not looking new. I used it before I got to take photos 😦

I’m The One:   This blush is a “midtone blue pink”. It’s a cool toned medium pink that’s actually brighter and darker on the skin than it is in the pan. Like other Satin finish blushes, it has a lovely, natural looking sheen and can be applied lightly or you can build up the color gradually until you get a bolder, brighter look. Since I’m The One is such a buildable color, it works well on pale to dark skin, although it may take several layers on darker skintones to achieve the perfect color payoff. Although this is suitable for everyone, I find that it compliments cooler skintones the best.

As with the other blushes in this post, this one has been lightly used previous to photographing it… Sorry!

Small Vanity:   Small Vanity is a “dusty rose tan” with a Satin finish. It’s a warm toned, slightly rosy tan. It is the darkest shade out of the three Glamour Daze blushes, though it can be applied either lightly for pale to light-medium skin, or more heavily on medium to dark skin. On lighter skintones, this can even be used as a soft bronzer. It’s highly pigmented so a little bit goes a long way. Like the rest of the Glamour Daze blushes, it has fantastic color payoff and coverage!
