MAC Cremeblend Blush13.8.12
Say hello to my first ever MAC blush and also first ever cream blush! I have been using MAC for years but I have never venture outside the...
|Warning: the blush will melt when it's hot. I was using this when I was in Thailand and it melted when it was left at room temperature. So, keep it in the fridge!|
The shade I've picked is called Ladyblush which I thought was a good name because the blush gives that natural looking finish. The colour is described as warm neutral coral. The colour is very pigmented. It looks really subtle on my skin but they are buildable so if you want to add more colour, you can. Although, I try not to overdo it, otherwise I look like I have a fever. But when I use it properly, I have been complemented that I look healthy and glowy.
I find the formula of this blush to be creamy and very easy to blend. When I apply it on my cheeks, it leaves that dewy finish that I have been looking for. However, at first I had difficulty using this blush as it can be rather tricky to use. Nonetheless, I have found that the best way to use this is to apply a bit of blush onto my cheeks and then blend using my finger. This is because the warmth from the tip of the finger helps apply the blush evenly. Another thing that you have to be careful about this blush is not to blend little pieces of fibres and things onto the blush itself (either from the finger or the brush you are using) because I did that and it was a nightmare to remove them.
|This is how it looks on my face!|
Overall, I like the finished look even though I do find it difficult to use. I have heard that stippling brush would be an ideal brush to use with this product but seeing as I don't own one. I will have to make do with my finger instead. However, even though I really like this colour I think that next time I will be trying the powder blush instead because I would like to find something that is easier to use. That, or I'm getting a stippling brush.
You can get this from here or any MAC counter.
