Mac Cream Colour Bases

So, I have been lusting after the Mac Cream Colour Bases for quite some time, and yesterday I finally decided that it was time to invest in my first two! The two shades I bought are Pearl and Hush.

^ Pearl is on the left, Hush is on the right.

Mac describes Pearl as a 'soft pale gold with an icy shimmer' - and that is a fairly accurate description. Do not be put off by the 'white' in the shade, as when applied to the skin it simply leaves a pearly gold sheen.

Hush is referred to as a 'soft pale peach with an icy shimmer' - I think Mac could have done a bit better than describe them all in exactly the same way! Hush is, however, a lovely light peach , and a shade which can be used for such a variety of things. You can use it as a blush, highlight and eyeshadow primer. The possibilities are endless!

If you have CCBs, do check whether you are able to apply them on the eyes/lips as some of the CCBs are not reccommended for use in those areas.

More soon! xx


  1. These are the only two cream colour bases I own. I use pearl as a cream highlight or even as a eyeshadow base.

    Hush I used under my blushes to give them a dewy look.

    Enjoy your new products!

  2. Thank you for those great ideas! I will definitely enjoy using them :) xx

  3. I love Hush!! I've bought it over and over. Enjoy!

  4. Thsnk you! I think that it's going to be my favourite too! xx

  5. These sound lovely, I think I am going to purchase some soon!

  6. Hope you do, I love the results from what I've seen so far! xx

  7. ah I love mac!
    I'm so bad when it comes to makeup, I usually have one blush, one eyeshadow, one mascara that I use untill they're empty and I can buy a new one.
    I'm such a tomboy when it comes to that, haha.


  8. That is what you call good! If only I had the discipline to do that...! xx
