Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):

This color is described as a Shimmery Light Bronze with Gold Pearl on the website, which i felt was spot on! It appears as a lovely shimmery brownish peach on my NC20-25 skin. This blush is quite pigmented (more so than the Stark Naked BPB) so one swipe on each cheek is enough for the color to show up on me! :)

Swatch from the Mac Website:

Actual Color:


This blush comes in the regular MAC flip-top blush pot.

This is a Beauty Powder Blush, so its texture is exceptionally smooth!!

Time Test:
This blush lasts about 8 hours on my cheeks before it started to fade, which is excellent! :)

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM80 / US$18, which is the same price as the regular blushers. This blush is LE though, so grab yours asap at your nearest MAC counter / Pro Store or on!

I tried pairing this blush with smokey eyes and i loved it! I also love layering a shimmery blush like NARS Orgasm or the MAC Verve-acious IPP over it!!

My $0.02:
With so much hype buzzing around this blush's sister - the Stark Naked BPB, this blush is definitely underrated. Initially i thought this was going to be too dark for my skin, but i'm really surprised by how lovely it look on my skin! This makes me look really glowy and healthy! This is my first brownish blush! :)

In a Nutshell:

A really smooth textured brownish blush! :)

Likes: Lovely color on my skin, long lasting!
Gripes: None!
Repurchase: Yes!

4.5 Stars ! I love it!! :D

  1. wah~ another one more blusher!
    no need repurchase la~
    can hardly finish one also :P

  2. so bad lah you!! :P:P

    Yeah i don't think i'll ever run out of blush to use... still i'm lemming for more blushes!! =X

  3. hehe. you're a total blush addict! My NC25 friend tried this blush at the store the other day but she couldn't pull it off. It looked kinda muddy on her. The SA tried well-dressed on her and that made her look so pretty! I didn't try it myself since I already had Gleeful on my cheeks.

  4. icic!! I'm also NC20-25 too, but it looks alright on me leh!! maybe i have a ruddy face lah, that's why the mud-diness didn't seem so obvious! lol!!

    Well dressed is a lovely color!! So, did you get Gleeful? :D :D

  5. we always want more. i know i am one. hehe. :P

  6. That makes the two of us blush addicts!! hahaha!! :P

  7. She's NC25 but she's really pale. Maybe that's why. If she doesn't wear makeup she looks like she's dying :p

    I didn't get gleeful (and saved some precious moolah!) cuz it turned muddy on me. not as nice as I expected. but I can't help eying the other mineralized blush there :p

  8. Ahahaha icic!! Maybe that's why!! :D

    I know i've said this a million times already... but GO GET DAINTY!! hahaha!! i think your skintone can carry Nuance off as well!! I love nuance but it's too dark for my skin!!

  9. This looks so pretty. I may just have to buy this! Thanks mama!

  10. Hi Yas, yes this is really pretty!! Go get it already! :D

    Thanks for dropping by my site! :D
