Why did I purchase this product?
I was looking a blusher for a long time, and didn’t have a clue what one to go for, as I haven’t really cared much about blusher in the past. As it’s getting into the colder months I think it’s nice to have a little glow on the cheeks so this is why I’m reviewing it now!
How much is it?
It is quite pricey at £18. I bought it in Dublin which was in euros and it came to around 25 euros!
What is the colour like?
It’s a very subtle pink colour which is great for a natural look that the cold weather would give you. If you like bright coloured cheeks, this won’t be for you. It is subtle but build-able to a certain amount. It has a shimmery sheen to it that gives a little bit of extra texture to your makeup. It is good for a natural pink cheek look or can be a shimmery party number depending on how you want it. Here is a picture with me wearing it on the apples of my cheeks. (Excuse my face being so close…) As you can see it looks natural but I have made it noticeable.
What is the texture like?
The texture is so soft it feels like velvet! It does feel quite luxurious, but what else can you expect from MAC? It doesn’t look cakey on the cheeks either which is why it looks so natural. Here is a photo with it swatched on my very pale wrist! It does look very natural and see through here, but it does look different over foundation.
Is it worth the money?
I would say, yes it is worth the money. It is expensive but you get what you pay for! If you want a natural looking blusher that is build-able and looks professional and will last you a long time, I would go for this one. Cheaper versions can crumble and you end up not getting the full use out of them, but with this one the packaging is superb and will hold in place forever.
What skin type is it suitable for?
I would say it is suitable for a lot of skin types. I am very pale and I always wear foundation, but if I didn’t I know it would look lovely on my pale skin as well. I think if you are very tanned you might want a slightly more pigmented colour as this one is natural looking and the pink might go unnoticed on some tanned skin.
What would you rate it out of 10?
This blusher gets a 10/10 from me because it is exactly what I like in a blusher. It is natural, buildable, shimmery and so soft on the skin! I would buy this again 100 percent. Below there is an image that shows the colour of this blush well.
I hope you all enjoyed this review and now you can all have those pink cheeks for the cold winter weather :)! Check out this product here if you are interested! x
