BLUSHED! My Top 5 Mac Blush Shades

by Jannat Manghnani on November 20th, 2015

What Am I Saying?

​I take vanity really seriously and anyone who doesn’t is pure lazy! From skincare to a full blown make-up look, i like to do my research on the trending products as well as the upgrades in my preferred brand of products! 
​One such trusted and favourited brand is MAC. Did you guys know, MAC is part of the Estee Lauder group of companies along with some other biggies like Clinique, Bobbi Brown and La Mer to name a few! I’m obsessed with the colour palette they have to offer, not only in lip colours or nail varnishes, but extraordinary BLUSHES that suit all skin tones! 

My favourite variety is the MAC Mineralise Blush collection that “builds lightly, layer after layer, without heavy coverage"

When i spoke to a MAC specialist they said that the beauty of these products is that they are non-acnegenic(huge blessing for me), dermatology tested and are essentially baked minerals refined into a powder formula. What’s not to like here? I mean ever since Kim Kardashian dropped the word “non-touring”(thank the LORD), it’s time we put down our contouring palettes and embrace these cheeky, summer friendly blushes to enhance the cheekbones while getting that pearly-shimmery glow! 

My TOP 5 Picks

Petal Power

This is one of my absolute favourite shades of pink in the form of a blush! Its highly pigmented and doesn’t wear off, even though I have an oily skin. The additional advantage is that it has an underlaying gold shimmer aspect to it, which really highlights the cheekbones! 

Pigment level: High
Packaging: Convenient 
Price Range: $$$
Repurchase: Yes! 
​Love Joy

I was gifted this blush shade to be honest and was a bit apprehensive to try it, because if you look at the colour its the most earthiest brown I’ve seen and I like to stick to my usual pinks and peaches. But I did end up trying it and I’ve haven’t been able to put it down! I personally feel this shade suits all kinds of skin tones including the wheatish Indian skin-tones. Yes, this one is comes with gold elements as well but they only ever enhance your features! One of my absolute favourites!

Pigment level: Very High
Packaging: Convenient 
Price Range: $$$
Repurchase: Yes! 
New Romance

I know it’s getting a bit jaded, with me just praising everything, but you guys HAVE to try them on to believe me! New Romance is no exception. The colour is a cross between pink and peach- almost coral and a light application will give you a very “fresh” and “dewy” glow, unlike major glitter elements that are present by default in all the other shades! I always buy them in pairs because I fear they will stop manufacturing it one day! Like ALL MAC blushes this one is highly pigmented as well and transfers easily to the brush or the fingers for application! 

Pigment level: Medium
Packaging: Convenient 
Price Range: $$$
Repurchase: Yes! 
​Just A Wisp

I got introduced to the world of MAC mineralize blushes when i bought this one! Just a wisp is a pink tinged highlighter that can get more opaque with more layered application! The shimmer content is quite high which is why I started liking this range of products in the first place! The good things is, these shades suit even darker skin tones as the shimmer highlights the aspects you want it to! 

Pigment level: Very High
Packaging: Convenient 
Price Range: $$$
Repurchase: Yes! 
​Ray Beam

Ray Beam is something almost everyone can identify with! This one doest exist to make a statement but will blend and suit whatever dramatics you’ve chosen for your make-up look. It’s pretty and softly pigmented so it mostly highlights and enhances almost like many of its Chanel counterparts.Whats more? Its also the newest one on the market. Grab it because trust me when you are in one of those days where you just can’t be asked and slip this on, you’ll not be disappointed! 

Pigment level: Slightly Low
Packaging: Convenient 
Price Range: $$$
Repurchase: Yes!
