MAC Tres Cheek Haul: Initial Thoughts + Swatches.

Hello Beauties! Now as you may or may not know MAC released a few new collections this month and instead of doing one big haul post I decided to break each one up and actually include swatches. This post will feature what I purchased from the Tres Cheek collection. I'll admit I'm a bit of a blush lover and when I first heard MAC was releasing six new blushes I was over the hills excited but when I saw the color story and initial swatches my excitement decreased. They are really lovely colors just not what I thought they would be.




From left to right:
*Immortal Flower
*Love Cloud
*Modern Mandarin 

*Price: 20.00
*Amount: 6g
*Finish: These each have a satin finish
*Where to buy: MAC website or local store/counter

More photos and swatches!

Initial thoughts: As I said before these are not a knock out of the park for me but I'm not totally disappointed. Of the three Modern Mandarin is my favorite and I can see it being used quite a bit for Spring and Summer. Love Cloud is the only one I've worn out so far and it did hold up on my cheeks for a good 5+ hours. Immortal Flower is a tad bit too light and I have to build it up for it to show up on my skin tone, but thankfully they all look better actually applied to the cheeks than they do in pan or in swatches.

Thanks so much for reading!

XOXO Brittany

  1. I too picked up 'love cloud' and 'modern mandarin'! I too thought they were a bit boring in the pan but I love the colours and how they appear! Great choices xx
