MAC Unsung Heroes: Sunbasque Sheertone Shimmer blush

At the top of the list of not-so-smart things I’ve done over the past few days: starting to view a scary film at 10:30 p.m. Yes, that’s when I cranked up Insidious the other night thinking I’d only view “10 minutes of it” before going straight to bed.

Schlechte Idee.


Of course I had to finish it, which was like viewing Britney’s infamous breakdown (I couldn’t look away!), except with sudden loud noises, scary silhouettes seen through darkened windows, and creaky wooden floors. note TO SELF: films featuring demon possession do not make for unwinding bedtime fare.

Luckily, I also managed to do something pretty smart this week, which practically balances things out. I remembered where I put my missing pan of MAC Sheertone Shimmer blush in Sunbasque ($19.50), one of my summer faves for sunkissed cheeks, and arguably one of MAC’s user-friendliest (I don’t think that’s a real word…) blushes.

Sheertone and I met a couple of years ago at a MAC counter when I’d asked a MAC artist for a blush recommendation. I wanted something easy that would look great with a tan, and she pulled out Sunbasque, a shimmery, peachy pink bronze. What made it special, she said, was the small red it contains, which complements the reddish tones in tanned skin.

It’s like a multifunction printer, but instead of printing, scanning and faxing, it blushes, bronzes and highlights. The bronze tones lend warmth to my cheeks, while the peachy pink adds a flush of color. The subtle shimmer just draws a little much more attention to the face, but not so much that I look like I’m rollin’ straight to da club.

Two layers (it’s sooo easy to blend), and I look like I spent the entire day practicing cannonballs at the pool…and napping and reading us Weekly.

I love the way it looks with conventional summer eye makeup colors, like bronze, gold, coral and teal, but I think it also pairs well with peachy pink lip colors (like MAC evolution revolution perhaps).

Have you spent much time with this Unsung Hero? maybe it’s time to strike up a summer romance.

Perlen der Weisheit…

I know it’s not The Godfather or anything, but I really frickin’ love Clueless. It was on TV the other day, and I can’t believe how much that film still makes me laugh.

Just great dialogue (“Cher’s saving herself for Luke Perry,” and “You try driving in platforms!”), bizarre characters and completely dated ’90s fashion. remember those awful velvet neck chokers? I think I still have one around…

Gute Zeiten.


Ihr freundlicher Nachbarschafts -Charme -Süchtiger,


P.S.S. Please tell me I’m not the only person who still likes loves Clueless.
