Pigmentation & Color:


This blush is quite pigmented IMHO, although there are complaints that this doesn't show up on certain skin tones! This color is described as a Soft Orange Peach, which i think is rather accurate! :D

The swatch on the website, however, is CRAP! lol!!


Actual swatches:


And on my NC20-25 skin:

Excuse my ugly sleepshirt and temporary pottu on my forehead! XD

Texture:
Like all the other Beauty Powder Blushes, the texture of this one is exceptionally smooth!! It glides on really well!!

Packaging:


This blush is from the Hello Kitty collection, so it has a black (why black?!!) Kitty print on the window! It also has red glitters all over the compact! :D

The box it came in:


Time Test:
This blush lasts about 8 hours on me, which is really great!! :D

Price & Availability:
This blush is priced at US$18 / RM80, and is available at all MAC counters and on Maccosmetics.com. This is LE though, so i think it should be sold out by now!! :P

Usage:
This peachy blush would look great with almost any colors! :D


My $0.02:

Truth be told, this is the ONLY item from my Hello Kitty haul that i purchased not only for collection's sake, but also because i really liked it! This is my first orangey MAC blush and i really love how it flatters my skintone!!It gives me a peaches and cream complexion, plus it makes me look so healthy!! :D It's really versatile too, so i can foresee myself getting lots of use out of this! Futhermore, this being a beauty powder blush, has the most amazing texture a blush can have!! Me thinks that MAC should discontinue their usual blushes and just make this one permenant already!! lol!! :D

My only gripe? The Hello Kitty's ugly! Don't shoot me!!! :P
