MAC Ripe Peach Blush Ombre


I have never bought anything from any of the collections that MAC release throughout the year because I know I don't need any of it. However after seeing the swatches of the new Spring Colour Forecast collection on Temptalia, some kind of madness came over me and I became besotted with the blush ombres - especially Ripe Peach.


I love the gradient!


From L=R: the coral, the peach and swirled together.

The colour is from the Coral line and it is a peach with a pink/peach coral. It also has a very subtle gold shimmer which doesn't pick up in my natural light photos but can be seen above with flash. The colours swirled together produce a beautiful coral which was unfortunately washed out by my flash. For much better swatches, see Temptalia.

I was slightly disappointed by the pigmentation of Ripe Peach because I found it to be a little bit chalky (probably as the main ingredient is talc; see a complete list here) . I also found that it needs several applications to build the colour up. I wore this to work yesterday and by lunchtime it hasd disappeared so it does need to be reapplied throughout the day. Despite this, I still love it because the colour is gorgeous!

Next on my wish list is the Azalea Blossom blush ombre....

  1. It looks really pretty! But it would probably look very chalky on me. This and the Too fabulous collection are the only ones I am tempted to spend my money on!

  3. @Random London Girl - I'm not going to get any, but I think the cremesheens from the Too Fabulous collection look great.

    @ City Girl - Get it before it sells out!

    @ Inner Belle - Sorry for tempting you! :p

  6. @peonies and lillies - I want it but can't justify spending that much money on makeup at the moment!
