A-Blush-A-Day, No. 3: MAC Pink Cult Powder Blush - Swatches & Review

The 3rd blush to be featured for Day 3 of A-Blush-A-Day project is MAC Pink Cult Powder Blush, which was part of the MAC Jeanius Collection (March '11).

MAC Pink Cult Powder Blush

Described as mid-tone dirty neutral pink, it's a soft pink shade with blue undertone, with matte finish. Although you can't see much of a color in the swatch below, it has a smooth texture and easy to swatch with good pigmentation. (Originally written by me here. Sorry for recycling my words and even photos. Pretty busy lately, and a bit depressed too.)

Swatch of MAC Pink Cult Powder Blush

This blush is highly pigmented. (Sorry for poor lighting in the photo). It swatches a beautiful soft blue-pink and on my cheeks, it gives a pink glowy radiance. Even a touch of my blush brush (Stila brush #24) onto its surface would pick up quite a lot of powder. It's quite soft, but there is no powdery fall out. Do use a light hand when applying this blush, and slowly build up the intensity of the colour to what you want.
I wore this all day for about 8-9 hours on different days and for different occasions, and at the end, I still see the same pink glowy shade on my cheeks.

Because of its matte finish, it doesn't enhance the imperfection on my skin, not that I have too many to begin with, ;) but at least my pores are not visible. In fact, I think it even makes my skin appear smoother.

This retails for RM75 (6g), and is limited edition.
