Hey lovelies,

I've admired Marilyn Monroe for as long as I can remember, but somehow most of the MAC X Marilyn Monroe collection slipped by me when it first launched. I've been slowly gathering the items on my wishlist over the years and was pleased to recently get my hands on The Perfect Cheek blush.
Although it didn't grab my attention too much when it launched with the Marilyn collection in 2012 (and it wasn't even on my radar when it previously launched with Makeup Art Cosmetics in 2009), I've been craving some variation from my usual coral or warm pink blush choices lately, so The Perfect Cheek couldn't have come at a better time.

The Perfect Cheek is a rosy neutral beige which seems unassuming in the pan and in the arm swatch, but comes to life on cheeks. It's subtle, glowing, pared back and dominating all at the same time. I absolutely loved it from the minute I began to apply it and have been reaching for it often since. In fact, with its eleven hour wear time and soft, easy to blend texture, it's the blush I've chosen for my wedding.

  1. Looks absolutely gorgeous! I don't anything from the Marilyn MAC collection, I wasn't that interested at the time it launched, but when I do show my interest, everywhere else is selling double the original price. *sigh*

  2. It's crazy how ramped up some of the prices can be! Sometimes you can find some bargains though - I'm always on the lookout for those! :)
