If it seems to you like I’ve been reviewing a lot of MAC blushes this past month it’s because I decided I wanted to review all of the colors in my MAC blush Pro Palette individually and then do a roundup post at the end. Today I have MAC Peaches which is one of their most popular colors. It’s a light peach color (of course) with a matte finish.
Peaches is a Sheertone blush which means deeper skin tones will need to layer this color. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s not pigmented. That’s what I like about MAC Sheertones, they’re subtle but not so sheer that you need to layer (and layer and layer…) for them to show up.
Peaches is most definitely a peach blush. However, when compared to another peach/apricot blush (Illamasqua Lover) you can clearly see that Peaches isn’t as orange. So you can actually own both and, although they’re similar, they look different on the cheeks.
I find that the staying power of MAC Sheertones is just average. Peaches has a matte finish but it’s very smooth to the touch and easy to blend.
Overall, I adore the natural flush that Peaches gives. If you’re looking for a peachy blush then I totally recommend it. However if you have a tan or deeper skin tone, I suggest going with Illamasqua’s Lover blush as it’s more pigmented and will show up better.
Let me know if you’ve tried this. What’s your favorite MAC blush?
