MAC – Sweet As Cocoa

I bought the MAC Sweet as Cocoa blush a few months back and I have been using it religiously after I got over my initial hesitation. Despite having many blushers I have one blush that I have stuck to for over 5 years (MAC Raizin), so getting myself to wear new blushers is quite hard, that asisde I really do like Sweet As Cocoa. Sweet As Cocoa is a warm reddish brown  shade with gold shimmer in it which works well with my skintone, MAC describes it as a ‘brown with pearl sheertone shimmer’ blush.
Here is a a picture of me wearing a hint of Sweet As Cocoa, it has easily become an everyday favourite of mine.

Whilst rummaging through my make up this morning I realised that my neglected Sleek Sunrise blush is actually very similar to Sweet As Cocoa…Oops! I’ll have to look at it properly and do a comparison later.

    Sweet As Cocoa looks gorgeous on you. I have it but sad to admit I don't give it enough play as I am always reaching for my Raizin. Will be pulling it out more!
