Mac blush review- Peaches

Hey everyone,

How are you all doing? Finally after so many days I have lots of free time to write for my blog. I had been so wrapped up in work and my cousin's wedding that my blog went too ignored. Anyhow I am going to write about my second blush from Mac which is Peaches. I bought this blush a few months back when I went crazy for the color Peach. I wanted everything peach from blush to eye shadow to lipcolor. After reading lots of good reviews about this blush I decided to give it a try. The SA tried Peaches and Melba on me. And I don’t know if its because of how he applied the color or maybe the color of my skin but melba looked as if someone had just slapped me. So I went for peaches inspite of him convincing me that melba looked better. How I liked it, read on.

Price:- 1350/-


So I first read about this blush on Mehak’s blog which is peachesandblush.com. Apparently she loved this color so much that she named her blog after that. Now I had to check out this color. I read some more reviews and finally thought of buying it. Whenever I go to a Mac store I have already decided my mind about what I want to buy and then no matter how much someone tries to persuade me, I only buy stuff that I want to buy. Perhaps that is the reason I did not like Melba as much as I liked Peaches.

This is a sheertone blush which means you have to swipe a lot for the blush to show up properly which is a good thing too since it looks very natural and does not go over the top. It is a true peach blush and has no pink of red under tones. This is as peach as you can go in blushes. On the skin it looks very peachy and not that natural since, you don’t turn peach when you blush but still it looks good. It looks the best paired with nude/peach lips and nude eyes. It complements all the brown toned eye shadows very well. Personally I wear this blush a lot to work.

The staying power is about 4 hours after which it is still there but does not look as fresh. Personally none of my blushes last too long on me since I tend to scratch my face many times in the day and hence disturb my blush.

The quantity is very nice and it is very easy to blend. If you do not want to spend as much on this blush but still want a peach blush, I would recommend you to try out Inglot freedom system blush in number 29. When I saw it in the store, it looked so similar to this one.

I am not really sure if this blush would show up on dark skintones very well because it is very light in colour. You should definitely try it out in store before buying it.


So for me this is a very nice blush, not a must have but still something you should have just for the pure peach color and the easy blending part.

You can see me wearing this blush in this post here

PROS:-
1.       True peach color
2.       Blends well
3.       Good lasting power if you don’t touch your face
4.       Complements nude/peach makeup very well
5.       Good quantity

CONS:-
1.       Price but then its Mac
2.       Does not look as nice on dusky skintones

My rating:- 4/5

Have a great day J
