Another must have for the brown skinned beauties, MAC Sweet As Cocoa Blush. A shimmering brown with slight red undertones that lights up the entire face with a natural looking glow. Did I say that this was a must have?! Yes, it’s a stunner.
See my sweet and innocent face? *batting my lashes* lol. I’ve had Sweet As Cocoa for about two years now and wore it non stop when I first added it to my collection, but after a while began to ignore it for MAC Raizin… which if you guys haven’t noticed is my absolute fave (full post coming soon.) Trying to keep my makeup as simple as possible lately due to time constraints, I’ve been wearing Sweet As Cocoa for the last four days straight and I’m in love again.
Very pigmented, applies smooth and blends well. Slight shimmer, definitely not over powering. Just a small amount on the apples of the cheeks does wonders. Even better, it’s pretty universal so anyone can wear it. Application is key.
Available at MAC Cosmetics $19.50. Want something similar at a fraction of the cost? Try NYX powder blush in Cocoa which retails for about $6 and is also gorgeous, I had it and used it all up. Only blush I’ve ever finished (although that is when I was first starting out my collection).
