Let’s kick off the Mickey Contractor madness with the Gana blush, shall we? Gana in Hindi (which is my mother tongue :P) means song and yes, this blush totally deserves a song of its own. It is described as a “bright white gold” and when I saw the very first swatches of this blush, I thought to myself, how can any Indian skin-tone wear this thing as a blush? Boy was I wrong! It looks so gorgeous on cheeks and can be used as a high-lighter as well and this will especially be the case for darker skin-tones, which most definitely won’t be able to pull this off as a blush. It gives a soft luminous golden sheen to your cheeks, so it will make a nice partner in crime to a killer dark lip. It is a frost finish blush, but surprisingly blends so easily into the cheeks. The pigmentation is amazing, as well. I am almost embarrassed to say that I only ordered this blush because Sur, the other blush from the collection was sold out and me being a blush fiend, had to get at least one blush from my favorite MUA’s collection. I have a gazillion MAC blushes, but this one is extremely special to me.
Get Gana, if:
  • You want a subtle blush that will double as a high-lighter (check)
  • You love Mickey Contractor (check)
  • You desperately want a blush from this collection and can’t get your hands on Sur (it is sold out online!). (check)
Don’t get Gana, if:
  • You can’t pull off light, sheeny blushes.
Swatch time!
MAC Gana Frost Blush
Overall thoughts: With many other superstars in the collection, MAC Gana Blush can be overlooked, but shouldn’t be. It is a beautiful blush that will especially be a hit with girls of fair to medium skin-tones and will work as a high-lighter for darker skin tones.

    I haven't ever swatched albatross, so I can't say for sure. I'm not one of those bloggers who see swatches on a blog and start thinking they have some experience with it..lol! But I <33 it. Its cheaper than the NARS one, though :)
