MAC Blush in 'Peaches'

I was after a peach blush to add to my collection when I ended up torn between MAC's Peaches or Melba.  I'm not entirely sure what swayed me but eventually I chose Peaches as the perfect shade. 


MAC describe it as a sheertone blush although I think it would be easier to just say it was a matte blush for those who aren't keen on shimmer. 

 

This blush is really beautiful and it's the one I've used the most of out of my palette.  I think the only thing is I know if I looked hard enough I would be able to find a much cheaper alternative from another brand.  

I actually have an Inglot blush palette with vaguely similar shades (I say vaguely because I always make sure I buy completely different colours but I'm confident if I did look for a similar colour, they would do one for less than half the price.)

 

The bottom line is... I like this colour a lot.  It was exactly what I was looking for but I know that for the cost it's nothing special or one-of-a-kind.  I feel like I, along with a lot of others, will be willing to pay the relevant cost for a unique product or shade.  Maybe this is because I'm over the whole hype around MAC because there are so many other brands out there.  

As I know this does not have a unique quality even in terms of lasting power, once this eventually runs out I can't imagine repurchasing it.

  1. I'm the same with Mac blushes, they've gone right up in price lately, the first ones I bought were £14. I now only have 2 left, ebayed others. I just think there are nicer blushes out there like Sleek, Illamasqua, Nars and not sure Mac are now worth £18.

    1. I am probably as obsessed with Sleek MakeUP blushers and eyeshadow palettes as other people are with MAC! I love their stuff, with a bit of Illamasqua when I am feeling flush! x
