MAC CCO Haul: Grand Duo Mineralize Blush "Hot Planet" and Loose Beauty Powder "Dancing Light"

9:22 AM

A recent swing by the Cosmetic Company Outlet, and I found a few MAC items I needed to have.  The first is the Mineralize Blush Duo from the Grand Duo Collection called Hot Planet, and the second is a Loose Beauty Powder in Dancing Light.  Both are beautiful in their own right!  The Loose Beauty Powders are milled loose powders that bring a sheer irridescence to the eyes, cheeks and even lips!  I believe these are/were available through the MAC Pro stores only, if memory serves correctly.

The Grand Duo Blush in Hot Planet is a split blush, one side swirled with pale and deep corals, bronze and ivory shimmer.  The other side is a beautiful warm rose shade.  Blended together, this creates a gorgeous pink/coral flush.  Like most of these mineralize blushes, especially those with darker colors, I would suggest using a light hand to apply the first time, at least until you learn how *bright* the color will be on your cheeks.

The Loose Beauty Powder in Dancing Light reminds me of crushed pearls, or a larger version of Bare Escentuals White Gold Glimmer.  This is truely an ivory base with golden shimmer.  When applied with a brush, it sweeps across the skin and leaves behind a beautiful pale golden shimmer.  This is perfect to add highlight, use as an eyeshadow, or add some shimmer to a lip gloss.  I use this one all the time, especially in the summer when the golden shade can play on sun-kissed skin.

Swatches are above - I swiped both sides of the Mineralize Blush, and then blended together.  As you can see, it is quite pigmented!  Next to the blush is the Loose Beauty Powder...gorgeous!
