MAC Mineralize Blush in Gentle

Have wanted to try MAC mineralize blush for a while. But since I don't live near a MAC or the Bay and usually shop online. Figure I would wait until I visit a MAC store to swatch the blushes before deciding on the shade. I'm glad I did since the colors are way off on the website.

Mineralize Blush in Gentle
Pro Longwear Concealer in NC30

When I was browsing online, I was contemplating between Love Thing, Love Joy and Gentle. I was leaning towards Love Thing but when I actually swatched and tried on my cheeks, it is a bit darker and much more pigmented than I thought.

Gentle does not seem that pigmented in the pan but when I tried it on my cheeks, it is a very nice mauve pinkish shade. I am really loving the pigmentation. Just a little bit goes a long way.

The swatch on my arm doesn't seem that interesting. When it is applied to the cheeks, it is very nice. Just the right amount of blush to be visible on my NC 30 skintone.

Also picked up the pro longwear concealer. It is a medium to full coverage concealer which I don't have any. This is in the shade NC30. I was going to go for a lighter shade for my under eye area but the sales associate suggested to go with my regular shade, NC30 since the NC 20 looks too light on me. 

I love this concealer. It is medium coverage and a little goes a long way. It doesn't dry out my under eye area and it doesn't look cakey. The only complaint is the pump. Since I only need a tiny bit to do both my eyes, the pump always dispense too much of the product. Does not matter how hard I tried to pump a tiny bit, it still comes out half a pea-sized.
