Mine at last: MAC Modern Mandarin Blush

mac modern mandarin blush review swatch nc30
Some time ago MAC released the beautiful Modern Mandarin Blush ($21) in one of their limited edition collections. Some MAC collections (and some products in particular, mainly blushes and lipsticks) sell ridiculously fast. I wasn't able to pick up Modern Mandarin back then but luckily MAC re-released it. I believe it's permanent now (don't quote me on that) and also available in refill pan form ($17).

I am so in love with this blush. It's everything I wanted it to be. The color is a bright peach/orange. Think of an intensified (and satin) version of Peaches by MAC. The texture of Modern Mandarin is very soft. And though it's pigmented, it's quite easy to blend. I also like that the finish is a true satin: it has a bit of glow and shimmer but no frost. 

In other words, if you were toying with the idea of getting this color: do it! Sorry for enabling, haha!

    1. Aw, mine is quite soft. Maybe it has developed a film on top? Try scraping off a little bit of the top layer x

  6. All of my blushes lean more towards the pinky-peaches and I've been wanting to more of a colour range to my collection. I'm definitely going to try this one out.
    Thanks!
