mac- lilicent blushcreme♥


A few weeks ago I had a sudden urge to purchase a couple of new MAC blushers. I literally begged my mum to come along with me at 6pm at night to Meadowhall to get them, and in the end she agreed. I bought blushbaby, peachtwist and I was suppose to get peaches, but just as I was telling my mum what to ask the scary MAC ladies for, I thought of Lilicent, the blushcreme that has just been discontinued. I had wanted this for some time, but had never got round to getting it. I just thought maybe they'll have a few left over, and to my utter shock they had ONE. I was so excited!
(this was taken when I first got the blush obviously)

I would describe Lilicent as a nudish/peachy colour. Very natural, fresh and pretty. It is the perfect subtle blush to accompany a dark smokey eye, but on the other hand it also looks fab teamed with a few simple coats of mascara and a nude lips. It gives a polished, dewy look.

I have been a fan of Ladyblush for a while now, but this is more my type of colour. It is quite a thick consistency to begin with, but once you start blending, it quickly becomes silky soft and blends in beautifully. It is very pigmented though so a light hand is definitely advised. I personally like to apply this blush with either the Elf stippling brush or my fingers.
(I took these pictures outside and I was freezing, hence why I smudged it about abit and ran inside hehe.)

It's probably abit mean of me to blog about something that is now discontinued, but you never know if you ask instore they may have a few lurking...

If you happen to have this blushcreme, what are your thoughts on it?

 Thankyou for reading,
 Oh and don't mind my 3 William and Kate pictures down the side ;) I could have kept adding to them, but I restrained myself!

    I did exactly the same last week and did a late in the day trip to Meadowhell to get some of their eyeliner gel (esp as they had 10% off in Debenhams!), my 1st MAC purchase and I love it! :)
