Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer Blush duo from RiRi Heart MAC

Hibiscus Kiss bronzer blush duo is the jewel in the crown of the RiRi heart MAC Summer Collection. Two of my favourite things - blush & bronzer with a little RiRi sass!

Hibiscus Kiss Bronzer is described as a “matte neutral bronze.” It’s a medium-dark tan with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a matte finish. I'd say it's suitible for medium to dark skin tones. It does look a little dark in the pan but it applies lightly so if you have a paler complexion you could get away with a little. It has a good, buildable colour payoff with a soft, smooth texture that doesn't look powdery and because it's matte, it's really good as a contour.

Hibiscus Kiss Blush is a warm pinky coral with a satiny sheen and a very subtle gold shimmer. In the pan the colour is quite bright but the initial colour pay off on my skin is a little poor (as with most MAC satin finishes). It takes some building but once you get there it's pretty damn striking. Gives my face a really pretty warm glow and it layers beautifully. I can't compare it too closely to any other blush in my collection. It has a brightness that reminds me of Benefit's Bella Bamba but more coral. The pinkness reminds me of MAC's dollymix but it's less shimmery.

Now neither are the easiest to swatch and since they just arrived this morning I can't comment so much on wear time but I'll share some pictures of them in action very soon. As for swirling the two together, I'm not a big fan of that - hate it when the bronzer bleeds into the blusher and makes it look dirty... separates all the way for me.

Overall I'm really impressed with Hibiscus Kiss £20/10.5g, a sassy two in one that will definitely help you chanel your inner bad gal. The bad news is the RiRiHeartsMAC Summer Collection sold out in minutes, sign up at MAC online here to be the first to know about the Fall (that's Autumn for us Brits) Collection.

UPDATE 25/06/13: Wear time is fantastic! Today I wore the blush and brozer and they're both still going strong... ten hours and counting...



  1. This is beautiful! I can't wait to try Riri's make up!

    Btw, have you heard what they said on TMZ that a girl went to rihanna's concert and there was a MAC counter and lots of testers of riri woo and she tried one and woke up the next morning with herpess and now wants to sue MAC? That was hilarious :D


  2. This seems like it might be too dark for my skin tone..shame as its such a gorgeous compact :)

  3. These colous are so yummy! Want! X
