For Spring 2010, MAC Cosmetics identified four major color trends, the first of which is an emphasis on pink hues, particularly cool, purple-tinged colors. A bevy of pink, rose, mauve, violet, lilac, and lavender in various blends and intensities are incorporated into the MAC’s Spring Colour 1 Forecast. Check out all the products in the collection, as well as some swatches, below!
BLUSH OMBRE (pict’d above):
This blush features a gradient color scheme, ranging from a soft blue-tone pink to a mid-tone lavender purple shade. When blended together, the blush takes on this delicious, lavender magenta shade that makes you think of freshly picked blossoms and adds a dewy rosiness to your cheeks. This is one of my new must-have blush shades for spring.

Here’s what the blush looks like on skin (note that it’s been blended thoroughly):
Pink lips never go out of style, but they’re definitely in full effect this season. MAC explores the nuances of the shade in this collection, with four limited-edition hues: Bubblegum, a creamy light pink that literally reminds you of a wad of Bubblicious gum; Phlox, an extra sheer light pink hue; Laugh A Lot, a lustrous mauve pink; and Pink Burst, a Malibu Barbie-ready shade of pink.
I checked out both the Bubblegum and the Pink Burst lipsticks and enjoyed both hues though, again, they’re not revolutionary, inventive color derivations. Still, they’re versatile and great for everyday use.
