Blushbaby is yet another flattering natural flush shade with a not so appealing look in pan. It’s a nice muted & so sheer Earthy Pink (on my skintone)shade without any shimmers which needs to be built up to show up. Blushbaby comes under Sheertone formula from MAC which is soft & smooth texture wise sans being powdery which blends in like a dream. It gets easily loaded onto the brush without kicking up any loose stuff around the pan. However goes very easy on pigmentation & one needs few strokes to get a little better intensity. If you love your blushes to be pigmented & more intense then give a second thought before buying this.Contrary females preferring that subtle barely there makeup are going to love this sheertone formula which replicates as a soft, sheer & natural finish on skin.
I need few swipes with Blushbaby to actually show up on me & guess would surely hit pan with this blush! The natural sheerness of the shade combined with again a natural sheer (yet can be built up) formula makes it little difficult to show up on 40+ MAC scale. But having said that , it can be easily built up for some punch on cheeks & looks so effortlessly natural. I can see this wooing all the skintones except very duskier ones. Blushbaby stays put for whole day on me without any issues. If you want to add up some of the everyday wear blushes with long standing formula then this fits into the bill perfectly. MAC has got some amazing regular wear blush range- Margin, Sunbasque, Mocha, Melba, Gingerly & Blushbaby to name some.
The packaging is the regular MAC’s signature black compact case with see through lid.
wearing 4 swipes of MAC Blushbaby
- Compact & easy to locate packaging.
- Smooth & Soft texture sans being powdery.
- Easily buildable pigmentation, though it goes quite easy for fist brush (that’s sheertone).
- Blends effortlessly.
- Long wearing.
- Looks effortlessly natural on cheeks.
- Will woo all the complexions across.
- Though I have no issues with the shade whatsoever but this is one of the sheerest shades I have tried on my skintone (NC42). So if you like your blush to be higher on pigmentation part probably you won’t like this.
MAC’s sheertone formula has got a smooth & soft texture without being powdery. But they go very easy on pigmentation & are highly buildable if required. They comes out as very natural & soft finish on skin which is highly recommended for beginners. Blushbaby is no different but the shade being naturally sheer in itself takes some effort to show up on 40+ MAC scale but rest assured that it gives a gorgeous natural looking flush flattering across the skintones which stay s put for whole day. Isn’t the name so apt for the shade?
