Review: MAC Powder Blush in Gingerly

Review: MAC Powder Blush in Gingerly

I’ve always hated blushes. I imagine big red/pink rosy cheeks and think of clowns. Once upon a time MAC was doing one of their events where they give people free makeovers with their new collections. I ended up looking awful and didn’t care much for the new products but imagine my surprise when I saw blush on my cheeks and actually loved it. Cue, MAC’s powder blush in Gingerly. Black packaging with a clear view of the product housed inside. It’s described as a, “capri bronze [Sheertone]“. Whatever that means, it’s a warm toned peachy orange colour with a matte finish. upon swatching it, it appears more on the orange side but upon application to your cheeks it’s a very natural peachy colour. A little unsure as to why it’s classified as sheer tone because it’s very pigmented. It applies nicely and blends out easily. It retails for $27.00 (Canadian) for 6 g / 0.21 oz of product. Also noticed that at this time it’s out of stock on MAC’s website so that must be a good sign.

Product Description:

Designed by and for professionals, formulated to provide fantastic colour with ease and consistency. Applies evenly, adheres lightly to skin to achieve a natural-looking application of colour that stays put all day.

Pros:

  1. Warm toned, it’s a super flattering shade that’s a peachy shade
  2. Matte finish, gives you a very natural flush of colour and makes it easy to wear anywhere
  3. Pigmented, takes very little product to get a nice flush going on
  4. Price,  retails for $27.00 (Canadian) for 6 g / 0.21 oz of product. I’m not much of a blush expert so I can’t really say whether it’s a good price point for this amount of product or not
  5. Easy to blend, long wearing; you’ll love this product

Cons:

  1. Shade, could look a little orange if you have a fair skin tone
  2. Price,  retails for $27.00 (Canadian) for 6 g / 0.21 oz of product. I’m not much of a blush expert so I can’t really say whether it’s a good price point for this amount of product or not
