Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the MAC Powder Blush in the shade Dame. I got this about a year ago but I’ve recently rediscovered it in my collection which is always nice.
MAC Blushes are very famous but this is the only shade I own as I’m not really a blush person. On the website that’s what they say about their blushes:
“A blush that provides fantastic colour with ease and consistency”.
You can get from maccosmetics.com for 23$.
The packaging is very simple and minimal, I like that I can see the shade through the top.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite hard and stiff especially when you swatch it, it’s not really pigmented.
It doesn’t have any fallout.
Usually, I like a less pigmented blush, it reduces the risk of clown cheeks, but this is a too much, it takes so long to apply, I mean, you can build it up but it’s not quick.
As you can see, mine has the “expired product patches” the blush is not expired, it creates them every time I swatch it and it did since the beginning, I don’t know why. I can scrape them off but it’s quite annoying.
On me it lasts around 6 hours before starting to fade.
APPLICATION & SWATCH
It’s really easy to blend and to layer, it looks so beautiful on the skin.
The shade I have is Dame, which is a satin blue-pink, very elegant, it looks super natural on the skin.
- Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore is more peachy and more shimmer.
- Too Faced Love Blush in Your Love Is King is very similar.
- Colour: 9/10
- Longevity: 8/10
- Application: 7/10
- Texture: 6/10
- Pigmentation: 7/10
- Packaging: 10/10
This blush is very pretty once you put it on, it looks like you are naturally flushed but it’s also really really hard to apply, it takes ages to see some colour, once it’s on it blends easy and it layers but what a struggle. The lasting power is ok. If you like the colour you can get it since it’s not awful in any way but it’s not something I would run out to buy.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
