MAC Cream Soda Powder Blush (Betty - Archie's Girls Makeup Collection)

MAC Cream Soda Powder Blush (available here) - $22

Blush like Betty with the all-new shade Cream Soda, a light neutral coral for cheeks and face with a satin finish.  Part of the MAC Archie's Girls Makeup Collection out for Spring 2013, this blush comes in a special compact featuring Archie's favourite Blonde-Next-Door.  Limited edition.

Part of Betty's side of the MAC Archie's Girls Collection, Cream Soda is a light neutral coral powder blush that comes in the limited edition Archie's-inspired packaging - all white and with Betty on the cover.

MAC Cream Soda is a soft neutral peach-coral, and because it is a satin finish, there is a bit of a sheen to it.  The color in itself is quite light, but what you see in the pan is what you get on the skin.  On my darker skin, this is a little difficult to show, especially in photos, but I hope the swatches help:

While this might look like a "why bother dabbing anything on" sort of color, at least for my skin tone, actually though it shows up as a soft, subtle hint of peach that I quite like.  It also gives a bit of a sheen (not shimmer) and warmth to my skin.  This would probably be a better blush for lighter skin tones than mine, but I find this just perfect for sunny days when all I want is a hint of color (nothing too harsh or pink).  Despite being such a light color, there is no chalkiness to this blush which makes it wearable even on my darker skin.

Overall, I think the MAC Powder Blush Cream Soda would be a fabulous pick for lighter skin tones and/or for those who are more comfortable with neutral colors.  The softer color makes it easy to blend, and the blush stays on pretty much the whole day - definitely a perfect spring blush!
