The packaging is a pretty ombre effect of green to purple. I really prefer when MAC does there special packaging just because it really makes it distinct from the permanent line.
The first blush I got is Ocean city. It was my first choice just because it was is an orange and I tend to shy away from it.
The ombre effect is done beautifully in it and there isn't a stark line between the colors. The pigmentation is good between both of the blushes. Not amazing but good enough that I don't have to scratch it. If I put my brush in sideways I get the goodness of the deep almost burnt orange but I also get somewhat of a highlight shade.
The other blush is called Sunset Beach. Just hearing the name made me think of the purples and pinks that happen at the beach and better yet, a sunset is filled with ombre colors.
For me this is an essential pink blush because I can control the shade of pink I get rather than having an orange and a highlight. I found this to be slightly less pigmented then Ocean City but it wasn't substantial.
Anybody else pick these up?
