Two New MAC Blushes!

Evening my lovelies!!
As we all know my blush collection has been somewhat BALLOONING since i started blogging (all you lovely ladies leading me astray) and in the last week i have come into possession of TWO new MAC blushes which i am sooooo pleased about as i only had one in my collection up to now and NOW i have THREE!! The only way is UP from now on as far as i'm concerned. The seal has been broken and there's no stopping me hehehe. 
So i thought i'd do a little post and show them both to you and share my thoughts and a little info for my favourite girls (YOU).

So here they are!! 

I ordered the Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon at the same time as i ordered my Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick over the August Bank Holiday weekend as i had miraculously discovered that my Credit card was £36 in CREDIT (seriously, that NEVER happens) and once i had that information there was no WAY it was staying that way for a moment longer!! I chose pink swoon because i wanted a colour that was different and i don't own another pink quite like this. 
I picked up the Powder blush in Melba (matte) on my birthday shopping expedition on Tuesday because i was fed up of reading/hearing about it and just HAD to own it!! This strikes me as more of a pink-toned peach then the Sleek one i already have and it just looks so natural. I've seen it on so many blogs/vlogs and I'm chuffed to bits that i finally own it!

Love the pigmentation on both of these. Melba gives a perfect glowy natural finish on my cheeks as warm peachy tones seem to really suit my NC30 skintone (get me, finally knowing my MAC numbers haha). Its so easy to blend. I've been wearing it with my MSF from the Semi Precious collection (Goldstone) and it just gives a lovely warm glow. Perfect for the new season!
Pink Swoon, I bought because i just thought it was the prettiest pink. I like that its a Sheertone. Its subtle and isn't RAWR at all when applied, although its easily built upon if you were to want a more intense finish. I like pinks because they really make the green in my eyes go POP and this colour also looks stunning with a tan. 

So, all in all, I'm really pleased with these items. I can't believe its taken me so long to get Melba and i just LOVE Pink Swoon. It makes me feel very girly indeed, without making me feel like Barbie (not that thats too much of a bad thing - i know i have a few Barbie fans in the ranks). 

My next MAC blush fixation is likely to be along the lines of Style or Margin. If i'd had more money on Tuesday i would have picked these up too. I really was like a kid in a candy store when i was in MAC! I also picked up the new Matchmaster foundation and TWO lipsticks. All of these will be coming to a blog post near you in the VERY near future. I'm most excited about reviewing the foundation as i'm a newbie to MAC foundations and i really am enjoying using it.

What are your favourite MAC blushes?? Which ones should i add to the wishlist??
