I know I’ve been raving about a lot of blushes around here but hands down, MAC Raizin has got to be my favorite! This is another must have for the Brown Skinned Beauties. It gives a natural flush and goes with a ton of makeup looks. I especially love it for wearing to work and when I can’t decide on what blush to wear with a random look, Raizin always fits the bill. No matter how many other blushes I accumulate I will be sure to keep this in my stash.
Raizin is a matte brown with red undertones. It kind of reminds me of the clay on the hills in the South, the kind that pregnant women love to eat. If you’re from the South you know what I’m talking about. Gorgeous on women of color but can work with many different complexions.
Raizin is extremely pigmented so you have to use a light hand, especially if you have a lighter complexion to avoid a muddy look. It may also be used to contour. Applies smooth, blends well and stays on all day. Got to love it!
Btw, I’m wearing Sleek True Color Lipstick in OMG
Available at MAC Cosmetics $20. A bit too steep? Try NYX Cream Blush in Tan or Milani Blush in Sunset Beach which are both said to be close dupes. Sorry I can’t swatch to compare as I don’t own either. If you know of any other dupes feel free to put it in the comments.
