My new blush love

Hi

I know it's been a little time since I post but I had to share. Ok so because I am not a owner of a galore of MAC blushes and I want so badly MAC Raizin powder blush, I decided to dupe it in the meantime until I can afford it.



From the MAC cosmetics website Raizin is matte golden reddish brown blush. I absolute love the sight of seeing this blush on WOC. It gives that radiant sunburnt look to dark tone skin.
So what I did to dupe it: I used NYX eyeshadow in Africa and NYC Sun 2 Sun in Terracotta (the dark color side) combined and it gave me a very pretty color that is somewhat dupable to Raizin. It is not intense but you can intensify it by adding more of the NYC bronzer to the cheek. The only difference is NYX Africa e/s has some shimmer in it and Raizin is matte but a little shimmer doesn't hurt.

**btw I am stating this is a exact dupe but it will do well as it gives the same glow as Raizin on the cheek.


Here are some swatches and pictures of the combination.

NYX Africa e/s




NYC Sun 2 Sun bronzer 'Terracotta'




L-R: NYX e/s, NYC bronzer Terracotta, combination of both





Well lovelies if you haven't purchase the lovely MAC Raizin blush and would like to give this combination a try, do so and let me know.


Be Fabulous!

  2. While packing I found you a dupe for MAC's Raisin. La Femme Sienna is almost identical to MAC's Raisin. As soon as I get settled in I will make you some swatches.
