A contour powder and a brightening blush powder:
What they are: MAC powder blushes are described as "colour for cheeks and face". Their wide range of formulas help create different looks.
-Blunt is a "muted golden brown" with a matte finish
-Margin is a "peach with golden shimmer" with a frost finish
|Blunt and Margin|
My Verdict: MAC has some of the best powder blushes I have tried. Their soft texture, pigmentation and the variety of colors and formulas they carry make their blushes a favorite to makeup artists and the public. Because Blunt has a matte finish, I do not use it as a blush. Instead I use this as a contour powder for defining the cheekbones and/or sculpting the face. One thing I will point out is that the description of the shade is deceiving. When blunt is swatched and applied on the skin, the color has a reddish undertone rather than golden. I personally do not mind that it is a bit red/brown because it does not make my face look muddy. For a finish that is matte, I have had no trouble blending the powder onto my face.
Okay, now on to Margin blush! Margin is among one of the popular blushes MAC carries. Many times I have heard people raving about Margin and how flattering it is on many skin tones. However, I always overlooked it when browsing their blushes in store. It wasn't until I asked one of their makeup artists to recommend me a blush I can pair with Blunt. She picked out Margin. After she applied both blushes and blended them I loved the way they looked together. Margin is a peach with golden shimmer and the frost finish flatters blunt's matte finish.
Blunt and Margin on the cheeks
How-to use Blunt and Margin together: For a sculpted face I recommend using an angle face brush with Blunt. I use MAC 168 large angle contour brush. To locate your cheekbones just suck in your cheeks (do the fishy lips face) and apply blunt diagonally blending upward towards the hairline. Then apply your cheek blush on the apples of your cheeks. Begin on the apples of the cheeks and work the color upwards, blending it with your contour powder.
