MAC Pink Cult

15 February 2013

Another bargain purchase from the Cosmetics Company outlet store at Cheshire Oaks, Pink Cult was released as part of the Reel Sexy collection last year. I'm a massive fusspot when it comes to blushes, being a cream girl all the way, but as soon as I swatched this it was love.
  
MAC Pink Cult Blush - £12.25 (from Cosmetics Company Store)

Firstly, apologies for the swatch being taken in completely different lighting, but it just wasn't showing true to colour otherwise. Pink Cult is the first matte MAC blush I've tried, but I've reached for it every day since purchase. I normally find that matte blushes make my skin look a little 'flat', but Pink Cult looks completely natural, and is perfect paired with a cream highlighter. 

I tend to purchase more peachy blushes, but Pink Cult is a gorgeous neutral pink that lasts all day, and just seems to work with my skin tone - although it's quite a pale colour, so I'm not sure if it would be a great product for darker skinned ladies. It's probably the most pigmented blush I own (other than Nars Amour), so a little goes a long way. This is the perfect, fresh shade to drag me in to Spring.

Now that I've (finally) discovered MAC matte blushes, what do you suggest I try next? I've got my eye on Melba.

  6. Beautiful colour. I'm after Melba as well, I have swatched in the shop a fair few times but just haven't gotten round to buying it. Mocha is my favourite MAC blush at the minute but I also find myself reaching for Style a lot too.
