new: MAC blush ombre

On friday I went to Warsaw and decided to get one thing from the SPRING FORECAST collection at MAC, which was launched in Poland on thursday (18.02). I know MAC has a lot of fans who buy tons of new things with every collection, but I only want to buy things I will really use a lot and basically the only thing that caught my eye from the start was the blush ombre in Ripe Peach!  It is a super cute coral colors mix. *^^*

morning, with flash, pretty true to color, byuuuutiful ;D

MAC website says "A powder blush featuring a shade wave of gentle ombre hues. Ultra-fine formula provides the cheeks with flawless, medium-buildable coverage and lightly pearled, natural-looking radiance. Limited edition.9 g / 0.31 US OZ" It is 25$ in USA and 113pln here (which equals 38$, expensive!). It`s Limited Edition so I figured - even if I didn`t like it after trying it I could always swap it for something else (it seems sold out in most of USA and people still want it), but no way am I parting with this baby! (*^0^)/

Actually, I bought 4 of them!! Azalea Blossom, Vintage Grape and Ripe Peach times 2 - but actually only one Ripe Peach was for me. The rest was me shopping for someone else. *^^* How nice of me! (lol) Recently I`ve developed a weird case of loving mostly cheek products, and guys, I really like Ripe Peach! :D It has a peachy pearly/frosty finish (but it`s way finer than MSFs!) and the 3 colors (orange, coral and both of them mixed) are really flattering on light skin like mine and I imagine it must look just perfect on a tanned or dark skin~ I will use it heavily in summer... ;D Well done MAC! I actually liked the Springshine blush ombre too, in person! I think it would be an amazing bronzer! :D And I`m now thinking if I should get Azalea Blossom too... :o Should I get Azalea Blossom too? (I am going to do a no buy march, wish me luck)!

Ripe Peach - blush ombre from MAC

They are pearly, so they light up the whole face~ So happy I bought it after all. ^^*
Here is a nice post about all the colors! And another one. Damn the color fade in ombres is pretty! (*_*)


  1. you're totally right that these blushes are in high demand right now! they're sold out everywhere already after only a week! you're lucky to get to snatch these up :D xx

  2. They were just released here in Poland on Feb 25th and March 1st, so we still have plenty~ :D But seeing how popular they are at forums and how pretty they are in person, I knew I had to buy mine fast if I wanted to have it.. ;DD
    Love them, yay! :D
