Product Description

Pigmentation & Color:


This blush is really pigmented, so remember to adopt a light hand whilst applying this! :D This blush is described as a neutral peach bronze with gold pearl on the MAC website, which is think is fairly accurate. The gold pearl is really subtle though!!

The swatch on the website:

Not very accurate as usual! lol!!

Actual swatches:


I know alot of people say that this'll look too dark on them, but with a light hand, it gives a really nice glowy healthy look! This is how it looks like on my NC20-25 skin:


Texture:
Like all the other Beauty Powder Blushes, the texture of this one is amazing!! It applies on so smoothly!!

Packaging:


I got mine from the Beauty Powder Blush collection last year, so it's in the plain MAC blush casing. MAC is repromoting this one with the Style Warriors collection - that one has a special packaging! Do check it out! :D

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 do grab one before they're gone!!

Usage:
I use this primarily as a contour color as you can see in my FOTDs! :D


My $0.02:

When my MAC MA recommended this shade to me last year, i was like, ewww, muddy brown! lol! I was fixated on the other lighter colored beauty powder blushes from the same collection that i would've missed out on this amazing shade had she not pointed it out to me!! But when she applied this on my cheek, i was immediately sold! I look so naturally healthy and glowy with this on! You really need to adopt a light hand though, cuz this one's really pigmented, and YES, it'll really look muddy if you apply too much! With the right amount, it's divine! :D

Nowadays i use this mainly as a contour color because i like how it's not really matte and it does give some dimension to my flat face! lol! :D

This blush's currently repromoted with the Style Warriors collection, so if you missed out on this one the first time, go check it out now and don't miss it again! :D Part of me secretly wished that i didn't buy this one last year just because i want the LE packaging, lol!! But i do not regret buying this blush at all, because it's really amazing and i love it to bits!! :D
