Today I´m writing about the cremeblend blush range from MAC, in particular the So sweet So easy colour pictured above.
It come in a 5.6g measure only and costs 18GBP
It is available from any MAC seller, department stores such as House of Fraiser and Debenhams and can be found on-line.
This was given as part of a set as a present to me from a friend that actually works on a MACS counter. I personally wouldn't by a cream based blush as I haven't liked them in the past. So this colour was chosen out by her to suit my colourings and normal make up style.
It comes in a Black box made from cardboard, which I didn't think much too but all of MACS products come like this. Then when you take it out it is a chunky black circular case, or pan as the professionals call it. It has a see through lid so you can see the colour. At first I was taken aback by this colour, its very bright and I don't normally wear pink but I still wanted to try.
Applying the blush is actually really easy to put on and builds up nicely to a soft powder finish, that feels and looks velvets. Its also very blend-able and looks very natural. Its not sticky at all which I was expecting as its a cream, My friend actually advised me to use my fingers when applying but I´ve also applied with a brush. I find it blends better with my fingers though I have to say. It takes two mins and despite my reaction to the brightness its very natural looking and suits my skin.
I have found however it doesn't last for very long, maybe 2-3 hours which I think is a disappointment as I expected better from MAC.
Taking it off is easy enough, I use make up wipes and it glides straight off. I have problematic skin that is prone to acne, but using this product didnt give me any reactions or breakouts.
Is it a good product? yes, I like that its blend-able and that you can build to a colour suitable for you. I also like how quick it is to apply and the way it leaves my skin afterwards.
Would I personally buy it again? Although its a good product, I don't think its worth the money as I´m sure its not going to last long due to reapplying 4/5 times a day. It is a little expensive for what it is, though all MAC products are around that price.
Would I recommend it? If you have the money to spend, it is an awesome blush, very natural and easy to wear.
I´m giving it 4/5 because It doesn't last all day and it is expensive, other than that a nice product from MAC.
Thanks for reading.
