MAC products are a common favourite among makeup artists, makeup enthusiasts, and women in general. Their products are always high quality and long-lasting. Recently I've found myself staring longingly at one of my local mall's MAC display sets for their limited edition Sonic Chic line. This capsule set of baked mineralized blushes promises to carve cheekbones out of even the most doughy of faces.

At first glances, the price is a bit much, especially considering the size and plainness of the compact. There are no brushes, mirrors, or fanciful details here, only straight-up colour. However, the blush comes in a domed, not flat, compact allowing your brush to pick up more colour and for the compact itself to contain more blush bang for your 25 bucks. The reviews on MUA rave all about the line, which you can see in its full range of shades below:

The only complaints I've heard about this product is that it goes on sheer, but then remember people these are mineral blushes! Minerals in general go on very light I am told, so buyer beware as always.

The best shade for lighter skin tones wanting that Jane Austen porcelain skin and English rose glow (see: Kate Winslet) should check out Dainty (see above: top left) although currently it's sold out! For those with medium to olive skin tones, I recommend Nuance (above: top right) which is a more peachy-gold colour that would look great for summer if you don't enjoy the orangeness of bronzers. Finally, winter calls for a deeper flush, so if you're looking ahead for next season's blush must-have, I say give Merrily a try with its rose red tones and pearlized gold finish.

Have you tried out the Sonic Chic Mineralize blushes? Tell me what you thought in the comments!
