If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed some periods of silence from me of late. I have been battling even more pain than usual and I’m also processing a new neurological diagnosis but all that can wait for a separate post; today I want to share my thoughts on my first MAC blush – BlushBaby.
MAC stock an impressive range of formulas and shades of Blush. I opted for a Sheertone finish as my REALLY pale skin is easily overwhelmed by products that are too pigmented – Coco the Clown is not the look I’m going for! The Sheertone formula lets me build up to the amount of colour I’m after, as opposed to getting so much colour from one swipe that I then have to spend an age trying to blend it out into a more wearable look.
MAC describes BlushBaby as a beige-pink shade which I mostly agree with. It turned out to be more beige than I expected. It’s a lovely colour but I’m still getting used to it; until now I’ve only ever used cool pink blush shades.
If you’re super pale and/or wary of very pigmented shades for blush/contouring, BlushBaby is well worth considering. The sheer finish makes it very wearable and the shade would work with a wide range of skin tones and makeup looks. I find myself reaching for it regularly. That said I think my preference for a more cool pink shade remains. I’ll definitely look to MAC for my next blush purchase as I’m pleased with the formula and staying power of this one.
Do you have a favourite MAC blush?
