MAC Wonder Woman Mighty Aphrodite Blush Review

MAC's Wonder Woman collection is in stores now. I only picked up one item, the Mighty Aphrodite blush that was recommended to me by Jill. It's a dual-blush, with a large shimmery peach bit and dusty bright shimmery rose bit.

The official description is Warm peach coral with gold pearl/Bright coral pink with gold pearl (satin/frost).

Let's take a look at the packaging which is, well pretty spectacular.

This collection has bright, cartoony packaging which doesn't appeal to me particularly but is certainly fun and very American!

I like the reflection on the surface of the blush - it's like Wonder Woman's golden lariat.

The peachy portion is about twice the size of the coral portion. Both are shimmery with gold pearliness but the peachy portion has more shimmer. 

Mighty Aphrodite swatched on NC15 skin, coral on the left, peach on the right.

It's difficult to use just the coral shade since it's so small, but you could use a small brush, with a lighter amount on the brush. I've been wearing it blended, by swirling the brush and twisting it in the palette so that I get an even amount of each colour. It's a sheer, shimmery blush so it's not intimidating to wear at all. It's meant to go on almost like a bronzer, which makes it a good blush for fair skin and a pretty pop of highlighter colour for darker skin. It's definitely a blush you can build up or wear softly, like I am below.

Mighty Aphrodite on me, NC15 skin.

Not to mention that the Wonder Woman blushes are twice the size of a regular blush. They're $29 CDN/$24 US while regular MAC blushes/Mineralize MAC blushes/MAC Beauty Power blushes are about $24 CDN. How's that for value?

I recommend Mighty Aphrodite - check it out!
