Sister Post: Blushes You Can't Have - MAC Don't Be Shy

This blush comes from one of my FAVORITE collections ever: Barbie Loves MAC.

Talk about a coveted item! I remember when Barbie Loves Mac hit stores (or online) and this was gone pretty fast. People love the little embossed "Barbie" logo - and a great product too!

I'll be honest - bright blushes scare the crap out of me. Particularly bright pink blushes, especially when they are pigmented. Don't Be Shy opened me up to pink blushes. It's a satin blush so there's not really any shimmer in this. I actually think it applies on the skin more like a matte. What's really great about this blush is that it is buildable. I usually end up pulling it out in the spring because on my skin I can just add a little bit of it, maybe layer Pearl Blossom Beauty Powder on top to make the cheekbones really pop. I love that it adds pink to my look in a way that doesn't scream PINK (even though the product itself does). I mean really... could you get any more girly?
